For those who may not know, he was in Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Heaven and Hell. 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 know, that shocked the hell out of me also.

The world of metal has lost a truly great one.

(So who now will pass the torch to Tenacious D ?)

Why would the rarities album have "Last Kiss" but not its b-side/companion track, "Soldier Of Love"? "Soldier" is a much better song anyway...
