RIP my brother...

Heaven and Hell was perhaps Black Sabbaths best song and that was done with DIO

RIP DIO

Yeah, it's sad.  His music actually spanned generations.  He used to play at my high school dances in the late sixties and very early seventies (Ronnie Dio and the Elves) in upstate NY.  My daughter is into his metal stuff.

Really!? What city / venues? I grew up in Saratoga, So I'm just curious.

RIP DIO

A song of the same name was my favorite song penned by John Entwhistle, who also gets a belated RIP from me.  Opened the album "Live at Leeds" which was probably my favorite version.

Nice to see Entwistle mentioned.  What a talent.  He really gave the Who a distinctive sound, but it rarely gets noted.  RIP JE.

As he sang in another of his songs, "The Quiet One", "I ain't quiet, everybody else is too loud"!

That's a typical bass player complaint. I can attest to that.... and that is for sure. RIP JE.
