Ronnie James Dio official website

I reviewed the CD version here. The only difference between the two is that the DVD follows the exact setlist, whereas the CD is edited to have the Holy Diver performance first. The concert is superb, just a band playing excellent songs, no extras needed. RJD is backed by a strong band that includes Simon Wright (drums), Doug Aldrich (guitars), Scott Warren (keyboards), and Rudy Sarzo (bass). Add the musicianship to Ronnie’s great voice and you get a top notch performance, well worth the 2 hours to watch.

Two things I thought of while watching:

How old is Ronnie James Dio? And why hasn’t Rudy Sarzo done his signature move of licking his bass? That has to be the most annoying move in all of Rock!

  1. You made the move!
    Cool.
    Looking forward to seeing this site take off with a twang! :)

  2. LOL…its funny….I was thinking the same thing about Dio and looked it up.

    According to Wikipedia, the mighty Dio is 65 years old this year.

  3. [...] was singing lower. If you’ve seen the Dio band live in the last few years, or you watched the HOLY DIVER LIVE DVD, then you know what I’m talking about. RJD gets a pass though because the man is 65 years old [...]
