Spin magazine does a good job insulting themselves, though.

If you just read what Spin wrote, and not the commentary, it really didn't sound insulting.

Also, Spin magazine still exists?

I could care less it's their opinion.

Meh. This is what happens when someone who doesn't actually know about this stuff tries to write about it for people who don't actually know about it.

I just think it's uncalled for an fucked up to say shit like that about a legend who JUST passed away, especially when they don't even KNOW metal.

Wow, are you guys thin-skinned or what?

I mean, they don't call him a "metal great" in the title, or go on to gush praise on a good chunk of Dio's work or anything. What did the writer say that's so wrong? Have you guys ever read interviews with Dio? Have you heard "Rock 'n' Roll Children?" Does that song not exactly describe the type of people the writer is talking about? You ever hear Dio talk about how tours, specifically his Sacred Heart tour, were meant to be big and flashy because Dio wanted to give people a place to escape the troubles of their lives, even if only for one night? Or, oh no, they spelled his given name, the one he never used professionally, and that the majority fans probably are unaware of incorrectly.

Even ignoring all that, this article clearly has plenty of nice things about Dio, and pays plenty of respect. Any other day, most of the discussions about Dio would be saying Holy Diver was the last really great album Dio released. I disagree, others do too, but c'mon, Dio was in his 40's by then anyway and had fronted two legendary bands.

If the worst offense a writer can do while praising Dio is to accurately describe something about Dio's fans Dio himself speaks about, and thinks that Dio's 10th TENTH major studio album is his peak, then boo fucking indeed.

Also, it's pretty clear the writer knows who Dio is.

I don't think it's clear he knew who he was at all. It was all wikipedia information and derivations from the lyrics to the songs.

Awful article, but not massively offensive. Perhaps a little insensitive so soon, but the standard of writing and non-knowledge irritates me more.
