Just this morning I listened to The Mob Rules while driving into work, thinking it would a nice addition to my personal Markshire Soundtrack. (The scene where this song is used in the movie Heavy Metal kinda reminds me of the Spire crew rolling through Foothold. Only with fewer ogres…and trolls…and boggles…you get the picture).
Then I found out he died yesterday. What a shame. Great voice. We’ll just forgive him for being in a band called “Elf.” I mean really, who the Hel plays an elf. Seriously. I mean come on.
I can remember back in high school I had a jean jacket that I put a patch of the dragon from Sacred Heart on. It took up almost the whole entire back of the jacket. It was pretty sweet looking, back in the day.
It’s sad to hear that he’s passed. He indeed did have a very unique voice. I think I’m going to cue up Holy Diver as well. RIP Ronnie James Dio.
