    heading down state to see Ronnie James Dio opening for the Scorpions and Deep Purple.

    I have read that the Scorps and Purple are flip floping who is closing.

    I hope Purple is closing cause I only really know one song by them then I can leave after the Scorps finish their set and be on 2 hour ride home early and beat the traffic out of the place.

    My second time Seeing DIO last was Water Street music hall Rochester, NY meet him after the show he autograph my ticket and my arm under my Dio Demon Tat. the autograph became permament the next day

    Never seen the Scorps

    I've go my tix for the August date in L.A. and can't wait to see Dio and DP. Honestly I think I could go without the Scorps, but they're OK anyway...
    Tell me, is Doug Aldrich as good on stage as he sounds on the Dio CD “Killing The Dragon”? My teacher knows him well (didi some session work with him) and tells me is a top notch axe!
    I never cared much for the thin sound of a Fender strat, but somehow Doug gets HUGE tone out of his rig.
    My first time in the spotlight was from a helicopter.

    Doug Aldrich was good I liked his guitar solo has blues flavor to it.

    60???? no way!!!</font>[/QUOTE]It's true!

    Ronnie released a single as early as 1961!

    Which means he's been a recording artist longer than the Beatles or the Rolling Stones. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    DIO Passes Torch To TENACIOUS D - July 1, 2002

    Ronnie James Dio on the TENACIOUS D song "Dio" and the latter's bizarre request for the diminutive frontman to "pass the torch" to the group as part of a publicity stunt:

    "Somebody called me and said, 'You know, this band TENACIOUS D did this song about you, and they want you to retire," said the singer. "I went, 'No, I don't think he'd do that? Would he?' He said, 'Yeah, they want you to stop playing. I guess they don't like you.' 'Nah, couldn't be.' So I listened to it myself. I went, 'Rubbish. They're saying great things about me. They want to be like me. They want to be 'like Mike.' They want to be like me more than anything.'"

    "I think it's great, and so I heard it and I thought it was wonderful. And I saw Jack (Black) and he went, 'You weren't mad at the...' 'No, I think that's great.' He said, 'Could you do me a favor?' I said, 'Yeah sure.' and suddenly they pulled this damn torch out, like as big as the one at the Statue of Liberty. And he goes, 'Can we take a photo for our publicity thing with you passing the torch?' 'Of course Jack.' So I did, and they loved that. But, no, I thought it was great. I just love what they do. They're just so intense and so funny. They just absolutely kill me."

    A picture of Dio passing the torch can be found at the TENACIOUS D's web site at this location.
