5/16/10 – R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio

May 17, 2010 at 4:10 PM (Avery Island//Music, News Commentary) (, , , )

Let’s get this straight right now: I don’t particularly like Dio. I’ve never invested much time into his music, I’ve never really heard much beyond “Holy Diver”, etc. However, I am not ashamed to admit this unlike every douche on a social networking site “throwing horns” in the way of a King they never knew. So, with that in mind, I say it is a sad day not for me, but for every one that has been influenced in some way by Dio, basically the most important figure in modern Metal music along with Osbourne and Halford. Condolences to his friends and family.

Today saw the release of This Is Happening, the third and supposedly final album by LCD Soundsystem, aka James Murphy. Is it a winner? Hit the jump to find out.
