    It's been a very sad stretch.


    Dio was the man.

      It was a sad and unfair day when Dio passed away. I was a big fan and he was one person I would have loved to have played drums for! HIs voice in one of the all time best in metal, as it may be the ultimate heavy metal voice! Along with his lyrics and image. I know a lot of people who either play with him or know him and everyone says the same thing; he was one of the coolest guys....

      Dio rules!

          Man, I really dislike those Westboro morons. Protesting at Veteran's funerals and memorials.....and this too. I was raised in a very Christian household, and no matter what I believe now, those idiots make me sick.

            It seems that any human Civility or Respect for those you disagree with, or those who have opposing views from yours, has disappeared. From politics, to sports, or - just pick the subject.

            The time of personal family or fan grief is NOT the time to make your point or post your billboard. Protesting at ANY funeral, particularly a veteran, should be a federal offense, punishable by life in prison.

                I think they should be interred with the deceased to debate their position and let out only after the deceased agrees they are right.

                      You know something guys? No matter what, people like this are gonna come out and spew their venom from their so-called absolute truths. The sad part is they go against EVERYTHING that Jesus taught..........Oh crap here I go, thinking I got it. Anyway the HARDEST thing for any of us to do is forgive them and ourselves for allowing them to elicit our own anger fueled emotional response to their intolerance and ignorance. Trust me I'm with you all. The protesting of a funeral, especially someone who has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom is deplorable. Spitting on someone in the name of God is no better than strapping a bomb to yourself and killing innocents in God's name. There's always gonna be the hate mongers and zealots that swear they got it right..............none of us knows until we get the dirt thrown on our box. RIP Ronnie James!!

                        I didn't look at any pics here, but I think I know what it's about... the whole protest thing at the Dio memorial....
                        Well, it was overall goofy....
                        The memorial was way in the back of the property, inside a theater sized hall.... proabably one thousand plus inside.....plus thousands outside....
                        (Luckily I got hooked up and was inside, it was hot out...)
                        There were tons of cars getting on to the property and a lot of confusion with where to exactly go... and lots of people walking the distance....
                        If there were protests, they were barely noticed.....
                        there were thousands of people at this event... it was awesome... it was a great place to be and watch everyone come together. This man made millions happy with his voice and music. Me included big time!
                        Someone asked me if I saw the protestors... I didn't...
                        But I did hear that a group of "metal head Dio fans" got together and joined the protestors ....but they had there own banners flying... they said "DIO IS GOD" and "Metal RUles" and stuff like that... so that pretty much kills any bs vibe the protestors were going for...
                        It is a total goof.... I won't go off on religion too much but it is very inconsistent and based on values of certain people "controlling the herd" at a certain time in history.... I understand... but when you've got homosexual priests molesting young boys and screwing their lives up FOREVER, and they simply get moved on to another church and there is minimal if no apology whatsoever, it really makes you see that they didn't see this whole thing through for the long term... multi media coverage, the internet, technology as a whole, etc, certainly lessens the chances of these instances going away.... as does being able to start up a lawsuit.... and I am glad my grandparents weren't here when all that crap broke loose on the news years ago.... how embarrassing that would have been and how insulted would and do all those who put countless hours into their faith only to have it diminished to just another opiate for the masses... sorry but man, if you're gonna lay down the law and say that anyone who doesn't follow has a chance of going to "hell"... (haha...hell??? where I will burn eternally?? Please! ) then you better stand up and apologize when one of "your own" screw up... and they better bet punished in the same way you feel GOD will punish if you don't follow the rules man created many moons ago!
                        anyhow.... protest... schmotest.... whatever...
                        Dio rules.... I know many musicians that were and are in his band... they all say the same thing.... the guy was awesome and nothing but cool....
                        that's that.... I doubt the same can be said for the protestors wasting their time there in the name of God....
                        You got a choice.... you get invited to Ronnie james Dio's 4th of July backyard BBQ, on the same day you get invited to the protestors BBQ.... where you gonna go and have a good time?????
                        Please....
                        BAG ON and CRANK SOME DIO!!!
