Dio in Chicago

"Heavy metal lost one of its icons Sunday when singer Ronnie James Dio died at 67. He was being treated in a Houston hospital for stomach cancer," Greg Kot reports.

"He fronted some of metal's most revered bands, including a Deep Purple offshoot called Rainbow, the second incarnation of Black Sabbath and his namesake group, Dio. As a result, he had a hand in a half-dozen of metal's greatest albums, including Sabbath's Heaven and Hell and Dio's Holy Diver. Most recently he was heard fronting a Sabbath offshoot, Heaven and Hell, which released a fine 2009 album, The Devil You Know, and toured extensively in 2008-09.

Plus, he invented ("Invented? No. But perfected . . . ") the devil's horns.

*

Here are some excerpts from Dio's (mostly) recent Chicago appearances.

1. The less that you give, you're a taker.

*

2. Someone stopped the fair.

*

3. She was up from a nether world . . .

*

4. Don't think that they're saving you the finest for last.

*

5. No one ever told me life was kind.
