Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona) was an American heavy metal vocalist and songwriter. He founded/fronted numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the “metal horns” hand gesture in metal culture and is known for his medieval themed lyrics. Dio possessed a powerful versatile vocal range capable of singing both hard rock and lighter ballads, according to Rainbow/Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore upon hearing him sing, “I felt shivers down my spine.” Dio sold over 47 million albums throughout his career. (Text taken from Wikipedia)
