  • Hello!
Yeah, that's right.  You can be jealous of me.  I'm going to see Black Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio, (my hero), at Radio fricken City Music Hall on March 30th and it's going to be a giant bowl of AWESOMESAUCE!!!

In case you are culturally illiterate, you may recognize my forum icon as the actual Ronnie James Dio with his cool 80's hair style and jean jacket.  He was lead singer for Black Sabbath for three albums after Ozzie left.  If you have any problem with Him, and think He is not cool, or something weird like that, I would appreciate it if you came directly to my house and told me to my face so that I could defend my position with an ass kicking of your ass.  Thank you.

Otherwise, you can just congratulate me for being the totally cool 80's throw back dinosaur rocker that I am and we can leave it at that!  RONNIE RULES!  OZZIE DROOLS!!!  (Hell, I love Ozzie too...)

That is all!  Thank you for your attention!

PS:  I actually met Ronnie in '84 backstage for the "Last in Line" tour and we talked about Taoism, smoked pot and ate curry together so I am totally cool like that.

I like the fact you uppercase the H's in "He" and "Him"

LOL, yes, well like the man said, Dio is the closest thing we have to God on Earth!  (Dio means god in Latin)

I am jealous. I will also be seeing Heaven and Hell here in San Diego when they come to town. End of April, I think. Should be a kickass show.

Yeah it was great! He's really well read and we share an interest in comparative religions. But He is getting, um... ON in years so who knows how much longer I will have to see Him in concert.  Last time was with Iron Maiden and that was back in '05.  I try to get out to see Him as much as I can.  He still sounds great, though.  His vocal power certainly has not diminished with age.

He has a cameo in the Tenacious D movie, which I recommend for dinosaur rockers like me.  I love Tenacious D and Jack Black has always been a devoted Dio fan.  So, seeing and hearing Dio in the movie was just phenomenal for me.

If you don't know Tenacious D, then I don't know what to do for you.

YEAH!  Cool, I'm glad you are into it too, Torgo!  You must be as cool as I am!  (LOL)  And yes, I know they are calling themselves "Heaven and Hell" but that seems like "lawyerism" to me.  So I will still call it a Sabbath concert.

I hadn't heard of Heaven and Hell, but having enlightened myself, I could definitely get on board with that.  I still have my vinyl copies of H&H and Mob Rules laying around somewhere.

Where are they booked, tP?

They are calling it that because I guess technically Black Sabbath with Ozzy still exists just that they are on a hiatus. Besides that I am sure that when they started playing as Sabbath with Ozzy again, Sharon probably has a contract or an exclusive on the name.

It basically is Sabbath, as far as myself and my roommate are concerned. At least it'll be Sabbath without Ozzy mumbling between every song with his teleprompter.

Apr. 26 - San Diego, CA @ Coors Amphitheatre

Touring with Megadeth and Machine Head. Interesting lineup indeed. Can't wait, I'll be there!

Even better.  Coors is about a mile from my house.

They don't play anything pre-Dio, though?

Yes, apparently they will only be doing the Dio stuff from Sabbath.  Also no Dio solo stuff, like "Holy Diver" or "Last in Line".  But there is a fairly large catalogue between "Heaven & Hell", "Mob Rules", and "Dehumanizer", (a little known reunion album for Sabbath and Dio in the late 90's).  Plus, they recorded three new songs for the new album, "Black Sabbath, The Dio Years" that is coming out in a scant few weeks.

Check out Black Sabbath's or Dio's web sites, (just a Google away), for all the details.

Is Jason Newsted still with Sabbath? Or was that just a temporary thing?

Um... yes... that was a temporary insanity on their part.
