oi guys!

This has nothing to do with all the Dio Tribute bickering between Manowar and Wendy+Friends. ever since His death ive been listening almost non-stop to THIS (http://www.myspace.com/heavymetalhappyhour) small tribute, most particularly when baked (which is quiet often) and i just wanted to get your thoughts on The Master's take.

also, there's an Argentinian label thats looking for bands to submit their demo tapes with Dio covers as they are compiling a tribute disc to be made available free of charge of us young'uns and our eulogy to The Man. im certainly looking forward to that one!


P.S what about the stratovarius take on Kill the King? another personal fav :D

what are yours?

I think the cover of Rainbow In The Dark is so-so but nothing more than that. It's a different take on the song but not really a good one at all. It's not something i'd listen to more than once though:D

If you're gonna cover the song it still needs the riff and the keyboards as far as i'm conserned.
