Anyways, the “Metal All Stars Tour” kicked off in Sofia last night, and involved a who’s who of heaviness that […]

Ronnie James Dio Tribute Detailed

The cover for This Is Your Life

Not a day passes that I don’t think about Ronnie James Dio, who I feel was vastly under-appreciated while living and now that he’s gone, has his ass constantly kissed by the metal community and media alike.
