So, after wrapping a bunch of gifts and doing some last minute Christmas crap, I was cruising the Web, looking for metal news, and came across the video that follows after the jump over on The Gauntlet.
It’s a video with old pics of the one and only Ronnie James Dio when he was but a youngster, long before becoming the metal icon we now know, love, and miss…the dude who invented the universal hand gesture for awesomeness, the Metal Horns. The video also contains some interesting audio.
It’s a song called “Johnny Blue” by Ronnie Dio and The Prophets, and it’s an almost-unlistenable doo-wop song. You can hear that it is Ronnie’s voice…albeit in a very different kind of forum. But Ronnie’s voice. Check it out, and let me know what you think.
