Conventional wisdom dictates that no act is more metal than that of going the way of all flesh. Physical immortality is just not metal. As you will see in the handful of videos I’ve decided to post in memoriam to metal’s most consummate — and well-screwed-on — head, you’ll see that perhaps no dude embodied Medieval metal culture as completely as Dio. Therefore, Dio is now unequivocally more metal than Ozzy. If Ozzy was even as close to as metal as Dio was, he would’ve died from railing a line of ants, like, 99 lives ago. He also wouldn’t have had that cred-killing celebreality show ... or those children of his.
It is now believed, and fantasized by many, that Dio is already fronting a revamped, supernatural lineup of Heaven and Hell in the great beyond that features Cliff Burton on bass, Eric Carr on drums and Dimebag Darrell on guitar. It is also believed they rock.
