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.

I saw Henry about 2-3 years ago in Dartmouth, MA. He was utterly hilarious. This was during the time period when he was telling the Shatner story, and the one about Mike the Burglar Chaser.
