Biography
In late 1982 Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice formed a band that was not meant to be a solo project but a band as a whole. Ronnie recruited an old bassist that had served time with him in the band Rainbow, Jimmy Bain. Along with a how new guitarist out of Ireland, Vivian Campbell, this band was to become DIO!

Their first album was recorded at the Sound City studios in Los Angeles. All the keyboard work on the new project was done by Ronnie and Jimmy, and so a search for a quality keyboard player would be needed to support the tour.

The album was named as Holy Diver, and it made platinum in the United States.

easily his best... and it almost never came to be. it's a pretty accurate picture of how I feel when I am depressed...

For the record, Ronnie James Dio didn't die, he just ascended to his place as the god of metal. (But we still miss you!)

This song is so awesome, really good riffs.. awesome solo, Dio obviously has a excellent voice.. and this song really explains what it was like after he left Black Sabbath, and felt lonely.. very great song..
