Ex-METAL CHURCH Frontman: DIO 'Is The Inspiration For Myself And Millions Of Other Singers'
Former METAL CHURCH singer Ronny Munroe has posted the following message regarding the passing of legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW):
"The reason I stepped out from behind the kit was Ronnie James Dio's voice. There will never be another one like it; from soothingly melodic to downright gritty, he was and still is the inspiration for myself and millions of other singers around the world.
"He may be gone but his legacy remains, and what a stellar one it is...
"R.I.P, Ronnie, and thank you!"
