    I think Mr. Lightning got it....tone is dead on...

    I can't wait to get home to my guitars. I am in Seattle for the death of my mother-in-law. Been out here 10 days now...will be home on Monday...

    Nice deep Dio track ..never expected that one.

    Thanks Jimi. Black Sabbath's Live Evil was my introduction to RJD...been a huge fan of him and his work ever since. Even share a birthday with him :cool: \m/


    Sorry to hear about your loss.
    Yeah, Strange Highways was not one of my favorite DIO albums but there are a couple great tracks to be found on there. Thanks for the compliment.

    That album seems to plod along ....kinda clunky to me...I like his up-tempo stuff better...altho "Lock up The Wolves" was on the slow side, I friggin love that record

    First, my condolances to you and your family during this time of greif and sorrow.

    I had the priveledge of seeing DIO on the Lock up the Wolves tour. The most consummate mudician I Ever saw and every fan left Knowing that each song he sang was personally for them. I have the record store promo poster tucked away for that awesome record. Yngwie and Killer Dwarfs opened.

    Thanks for kind words...I actually liked my mother-in-law, lol...great woman...it's been tough , but everyone is pulling thru...

    That was a great lineup....my one concert regret is not seeing Ronnie...he just never appeared in my neck of the woods when I was here...bad timing...his music helped me through some tough times.

    Not to hijack this thread but .....the last time I saw RJD was when Heaven and Hell came through. My better half had driven 2 hours unknown to me to get a ticket, called my boss and had me sent home under the pretense of an emergency. She handed me the ticket And said Go.
    The cincert was 3 hours from were I lived so she also convinced my boss to give me the next day off....
    Yup, shes a keeper and fully understands my appreaciation for DIO.
    Sorry folls, had to share.:thumb:

    1991 and don't cry for this guy as it was his only top 40 hit (solo)

    Yes...I lay motionless in cover waiting for some unwitting person to play the 1 in 372 songs I recognize.
