DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

RONNIE JAMES DIO (ABO #376)

RONNIE JAMES DIO
KING OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL

Ronnie James Dio will no longer move us with new material featuring his golden voice. That’s sad news.
At age 67, he left us. The gems of his long and fruitful career remain. From Elf to Heaven & Hell, Ronald Padavona (his real name) has given us some of the finest music in the rock/metal realm. Thinking about it, it’s quite incredible that such a small man has become one of the greatest, but the gift Mother Nature had given him was a sure sign of a grand destiny.
Not all of his artistic choices were judicious, he may even have released a few albums, under the DIO moniker, that didn’t fit his grandeur. Nevertheless, he will be remembered and cherished as the rock legend he managed to become.
We all miss you Ronnie.
R.I.P.

GREAT TRIBUTE
I also think it is very tasteful that you don't give away the albums just samples so the artist still has an album to sell.
Was listening to Rainbow Rising earlier, in my opinion great album from beginning to end.
thanks again
Phil
