Simi Valley, California: Metal Blade Records, 2006. First Edition. Trade paperback. Fine. Textual illustrations. Simi Valley, California: Metal Blade Records, Inc., 2006, First edition. Though its been five years since stomach cancer silenced one of the greatest voices in metal, Ronnie James Dios influence still looms large over the genre. With a powerful versatile vocal range equally capable of singing hard rock and lighter ballads, Dio (born Ronnie James Padavona, 1942-2010) fronted numerous groups, including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven & Hell, and laid the groundwork for the power metal subgenre with his medieval-themed and fantasy-oriented lyrical style. This, the first book on the man Jack Black dubbed the heavy metal Pavarotti, is based on extensive interviews Popoff conducted with Dio himself and many of his bandmates. Original glossy paper wrappers. A fine copy. (Inventory #: 64321)
