Ronnie James Dio (

Rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio.

I first heard you with Rainbow on a late-night radio program in the 1970s. Being a guitar geek, I was of course thrilled by Ritchie Blackmore’s playing. But the majesty and … beauty for lack a better word … of your voice has haunted and enchanted me in the 30-something years since. You will be missed.

And I will be cranking you up LOUD as I run my errands today.
