Just read that Dio had died from cancer. Weird, I was just picking and grinning along with this song last night. Back in my big hair days we used to cover this song and a few others. Dio had a tremendous voice. I don't think he was into Satanism and all that, more just magical stuff that superstitous Southern Italians are famous for.
I have a wide variety of musical tastes from classical to country to headbanger metal. I like anything that is musically built well. Dio Started back in the 50s actually, and he played with Black Sabbath, Rainbow and ELF. And it was all white. Heavy Metal is a white thang.
Anyway, a tribute to Dio. RIP.
Blackmore, who Dio played with, has his own band with his wife (25 years his junior). I'm currently playing this for fun since I just bought a new gootar and some recording software. If I can get my brat kid to sing it I might put the recording up if I can figure out the software :)
