Ronnie James Dio was one of the most influential heavy metal artists of all time. Before he founded his band Dio, he was the first lead singer of Rainbow from 1975-1979, and he then joined Black Sabbath and was the lead singer from 1979-1982, 1991-1992, and again from 2006 -2010, which was the year he passed away.
In 1983 after leaving Black Sabbath for the first time, he founded the band Dio, which arguably is one of the most influential heavy metal bands of the ’80s. Dio’s first album, Holy Diver, is one of our favorites, and their second album, The Last In Line, released in 1984, produced their highest charting rock single when the title track, The Last In Line peaked at number ten on the Mainstream Rock charts.
