Rip Dio

If you care, you're probably already aware that Ronnie James Dio, of Black Sabbath (the singer who came along after Ozzy left for Mob Rules) and other bands like Rainbow, and of some good songs like Holy Diver, has passed away. He invented the "goat throw." He said it is the hand sign for the evil eye that his Italian grandmother used to use to ward off Jehovah's Witnesses, Encyclopedia Salesmen, water meter readers and other ne'er-do-wells. RJD was a small man but full of fire and it never seemed like he got tired of being all metal all the time. Pour out some Sangria for lil Ronnie tonight.
