Ronnie James Dio: 1942 – 2010

Dio 1974

Heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio passed away 4 years ago today. The vocalist fronted Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Heaven and Hell and, of course, Dio in his time.

His last public appearance was to accept the Best Vocalist award at Revolver magazine’s 2010 Golden Gods Awards ceremony. In tribute to the late singer, Revolver have posted both his acceptance of the award and his final interview with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor online.

You can watch them below.
