    I got to see him open for Iron Maiden a few years ago. He was awesome.

    Every interview I've ever seen with him, he was a nice, polite and thoughtful person.

    For a little guy, he was one of the biggest people in metal.

    A big loss.

    I saw him with Rainbow, Sabbath and Dio. Great voice and came across as a decent guy. RIP. :(

    "Holy Diver" is still one of the great nonsensical metal songs of all time. I've heard it a hundred times and I'm still not sure what it's about, but all the vocals just sound great.

    Also, Rainbow's biggest hit, "Man On A Silver Mountain" is awesome. What a great guitar riff.

    The grand father is gone all we have left is the God father, the metal God, and Just God I propose we recarve MT rushmore with the likenesses of Ozzy Halford Lemmy and Dio in their honor

    Got to see him with Sabbath as well on the Heaven and Hell and the Mob Rules tours back in the 80s and once with his own band sometime later in the 80s. Never saw him since and didn't go to the Heaven and Hell tour a few years ago, wish I would have now.

    I think Sabbath were at their best when Dio was the man. They truly made my life as a teen much easier having their music to occupy my time with back then.

    I actually cried last night at the news. I haven't done that over a band member dying ever. I'll miss him.

    I thought it was fake until I heard Ozzy Osbourne complementing him and saying what a loss it was.

    He seemed in such good health... I'm very sad by it but I hope he is a peace. I love his music and have been trying to listen to it more. Everyone at school thinks I'm weird for liking that music (most kids my age are into Disney music) but I always tell them to shove it up the nose with a garden hose. I was really looking forward to Magica II & III. My dad was too.

    Some of my fondest memories of my teen years were drinking beer and listening to Dio in my buddy's '68 Mustang. Sadly now both of them are gone.

    RIP Dio. Your many, many fans thank you for everything you gave us.
