Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life Review


Ronnie James Dio was one of the most iconic singers in rock history. His soaring, almost operatic vocals were always distinctive, be it with his early band Elf, his stints fronting Black Sabbath and Rainbow, or leading his own band, Dio. Now his friends, fans, and disciples — well, the ones who play music professionally, anyway — are honoring the man and his music with the tribute album Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life (CD, digital, vinyl). And while it’s a mixed bag at best, it was clearly made with love and respect.
