While RJD carved out his legacy during his early years in Elf, Rainbow and Sabbath; it was during his solo career where he truly earned his stripes. During his stellar career, DIO created one of the most extensive catalogs that the metal genre has ever saw. While many people celebrate his work in those high profile gigs, some forget how truly magnificent his solo efforts actually were.
Over that same solo career, his band saw many lineup changes while suffering many ups and downs. One thing always remained constant though and that was Ronnie's vision. No matter what style of music, no matter what themes of choice, no matter who was playing the instruments, one could always recognize that the music was DIO. And that my friends is what makes this guy one of the legends of heavy metal. Simply put...a rock god.
Opinions are widespread on where his albums stack up when ranked to each other. Once again, a challenging project to undertake; nonetheless one that we are ready to take head on. So don't be the last in line as we lock up the wolves on this journey down these very strange highways!
