    Default Whos the oldest rocker/metal singer/musician?

    I had no clue until recently that Ronnie James Dio was aged 65. I looked on a few sites to clarify this, and yes, he was born in 1942.
    Does this make him the oldest rocker/Metal stalwart?

    Ian Gillian and Roger Glover would be in the early 60's too
    Jimmy Page is 63
    Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are about 63

    Any other candidates?

    Unbelievable that Sammy and Robert Plant are almost the same age...

    It's also unbelievable that Sammy was 40 when he joined Van Halen....I think.....WOW.....

    Sam was 37 and Ed was 30 in 1985, but you would never even be able to tell. Six years, big difference especially when you compare it to the minimal difference between Dave and Ed. Pretty interesting if you ask me...

    I read in the paper that Dio is 60...his voice has help up well.

    Dio has that classically trained voice and it's held up terrifically over the last 30 odd years

    Dio has been performing since the late 50's and recording since 1962. You can find a lot of his early stuff here.

    Here's a song that Dio/Sabbath fans will recognize, but this ain't from the Heaven & Hell tour, it's a much earlier cover by Dio's band Elf.
