RONNIE JAMES DIO – This week’s Three For Thursday is dedicated to Ronnie James Dio, who lost his battle with cancer three years ago today (5/16/10). He is one of the greatest singers in hard rock music history, but more importantly, an incredible person who truly appreciated every one of his fans. He left a mark on hard rock music like few others. The horns up sign that he introduced has become the signature gesture for every metal band and every metal fan in the world.
R.I.P. RJD – you may be gone, but your legend will live on forever. \m/ \m/
