The greatest Metal vocalists/lyricist of all time. Born July 10, 1942 and originally named Ronald James Padavona, he released his first single with the band Ronnie and the Red Caps in 1958. He continued to grace the world with his amazing voice for the next 52 years as the lead singer of several legendary bands such as Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven and Hell. Also very famous for his invention of the devil horns hand gesture, a fact that comes as a shock to most people considering Dio is widely believed to be the second coming of Jesus. He passed away May 16, 2010, the same day all the happiness in the world vanished.
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio

Not only is he the best Sabbath vocalist, he's the best metal vocalist. See BETTER THAN OZZY.
I love RJD.
