I had never appreciated Dio, when I was in high school. At that time it was the band, 'Dio'. It was more for guys and my BF at the time that played
guitar. When he died, I read all about him. About other bands he had been in. Started listening to the music again. Now I appreciate him.
2 of the videos say 'not available in your country'. But the Children if the Sea stage backdrop, is awesome. I loved concerts with 2 and 3 level

Saw rainbow in 1977 and 1980 at Manchester Apollo-In 1980 Graham Bonnett asked a guy in the front row to pass him a beer. Those were the days-you
could drink at a concert, and were close enough to the band to touch them. Oh, and I was at school but still made enough from my Saturday job to buy
A chick who likes Dio. No, that's not rare, at all. Kudos.
Now, there's a live version of Don't Talk To Strangers, on the flip side of the Mystery 12" single, IIRC, that is the best ever done, and I've only
heard a few thousand or so. It's not on Youtube so come over and I'll play it for you. I do know the Dio band didn't play live until after the release
of Holy Diver, so this rendition cannot be before the tour happened but Dio sings some different lyrics and, well......
All together now.......
Never More from Elf. Totally awesome first album.
Gambler, Gambler from the same album.
Elf - Never More
Yeah, I'm a Dio nut. So sue me. It's kinda funny, this band was really good and got screwed by Ritchie. All for the greater good, It seems today, but
Elf could have been more than what they were.
I'm not complaining, as things like this happened.

A true legend has been lost! I have seen interviews and he seems like an amazing man, deeply philosophical and so very interesting. I could easily
spend hours listening to him talk, listening to him sing. Shine on bright star!
Thanks for the vids! I have a busy day today, but will get back in here and listen to the vids you posted. Thanks!
But why is there a silver mountain with a dude hanging out on the top of it?
What is a Sunset Superman?
Why are we the Last In Line? What line?
What is a Holy Diver?
These, and many other questions, will be explained on the next episode of Soap - yeah, I'm skewing old but Chuck and Bob are still some of the
silliest moments I've ever seen on tele. They also have nothing to do with Dio but I don't care.
