Also, of course, his namesake band Dio. I can't believe he was 67 years old! Peter Steele and now Dio; not a great year for Heavy Metal.

My friend Georgy bought his album and really likes it. I saw him open for Jeff Tweedy last year (actually, I skipped No Way Out `01 for that show) and enjoyed his set. He was the singer for the "next-Silverchair-of-`97" band Radish, ya know.
