Not only is it insulting, but poorly written as well.

YESTERDAY MARKS 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF IAN CURTIS' DEATH

by Jackson May

Ian Curtis was some faggot who wrote really fucking emo music that inspired a whole generation of girls to not care about whimpy kids crying into their diaries and fuck jocks. Thanks Ian, you piece of shit. Joy Division sucks.

I'll agree with evilcheese on this one. I'm just as big of a Dio fan as anyone could be but I don't find it offensive at all. This isn't disrespectful and do we even know what this writers style is like? Maybe he writes like this for everything. Dio's lyrics are about fantasy and it did speak to a lot of people like myself who never were popular or really fit in at all anywhere. It gave us a world to go to and someone to speak to us and make us believe we could do anything and overcome all obsticles.

Just because it wasn't the usuall 100% love fest every other tribute to him has been doesn't mean it was disrespectful at all. This is nowhere even on the level of what that one duchebag writter said about Dimebag and his fans after he was killed. So let's not worry about what this writer said since he's probably not that important anyways.

Also Spin is still in print and people still subscribe to it? What year are we in, 1992?

Awful article, but not massively offensive. Perhaps a little insensitive so soon, but the standard of writing and non-knowledge irritates me more.
How do you figure? Just read what he wrote about Black Sabbath. If that sounds straight from Wikipedia, including what would have to be a made up little story about Facebook... or the list of adjectives used to describe his voice then Wikipedia has clearly started featuring more content about Dio then the last time I checked.

Maybe he wasn't Dio's biggest fan, but the way you guys are talking it sounds like he just ripped off Wikipedia while taking a dump on Dio's grave. It might not be the article YOU GUYS want it to be, it might (well, certainly) isn't the best written about Dio, but I don't think it's the insulting misinformed diatribe it's being made out to be.

Google is the friend of the uninformed. I've read that exact statement many, many times before.

Probably is.

What? "growling"? "siren-like"? "built for battle, not blues and ballads"? Please.

So what? Most of the Dio tributes are just the AP article with little to nothing added. And what is with this anyways? I already said in the Dio R.I.P. thread I won't tolerate people talking shit for the sake of it, but I didn't realize metal fans had such thin hides. I mean if you really want to tear into the adjectives, then, by all means, but seriously, this article is hardly insulting.

And we care what Spin Magazine says about Dio why? I didn't find it insulting, either. Metal Injection was getting really fucking defensive...their reaction contained about 10x the words of the so-called attack.

Why do any of you care what anyone says about Dio, let alone people who don't even like metal?
