Off the ball

Due to sickness-induced hibernation last week I missed the news regarding the passing of Ronnie James Dio, who lost his battle with stomach cancer on Sunday. An Archie Moore-like figure in the music industry Dio was probably "the only singer in history whose c.v. included both greasy '50s doo-wop and Black Sabbath", to quote Ken. He will be missed.

Two of my favorite "Dio Era" Rainbow tunes.
