Holy Diverrrrrrr.....RIP

Ronnie James Dio passed away Sunday a.m. at the age of 67...no real surprise, he had been frail for weeks.  Besides making the "horns" the universal symbol of rock..Ronnie had one of the most powerful voices around. He also had a "magical aura" that I experienced first-hand in 1987.  I hosted a listening party for the release of his "Dream Evil" album...we were at the old Swing Street studios, with invited guests. In the crowd, on a gurney, was a boy, 14 or 15 years old.  His dying wish..granted by Make A Wish..was to meet Dio. I'll never forget how gracious & attentive Ronnie was with this young, doomed fan...who smiled broadly all nite, despite his pain.  RIP, Ronnie...even tho you always reminded me of Carla from "Cheers."
