Ronnie James Dio, the man who gave birth to 'The Devil Horns' the eternal symbol for metal & rock n roll alike, and often credited for the invention of power metal, has participated in 3 major bands aswell as his own solo work. There is Elf, his first major band which recorded 3 albums, then was recruited by Ritchie Blackmore to join Rainbow, with whom he recorded 3 studio albums and a live album. The Black Sabbath, he recorded 3 studio albums (and is currently working on something with Geezer, Iommi and Appice under the name Heaven And Hell), and in 1983 started his solo project spanning 10 albums. Which Dio band/project/thingy do you like best?

For my vote I chose Rainbow, Ritchie Blackmore is an amazing guitarist and it goes really well with Dios voice, I havnt heard enough Elf to judge, and some Dio solo albums can be a little dry and forgettable. So it was down to Rainbow & Sabbath, but since Long Live Rock N Roll is my favorite album of all time I have to go with Rainbow.

His most memorable period is the solo one. Holy Diver is such a classic. However, Cildren of the Sea, Heaven and Hell, Neon Knights are probably my favourites so I'll go for Sabbath.

His best work is easily with Rainbow. His solo career has too many downs and well I am of the opinion he never fit in with Black Sabbath, although Mob Rules is quite a good album.

Anyone else liked or listened to his pre-Elf stuff (Ronnie Dio And The Prophets, Ronnie And The Redcaps)?

I argee Rainbow was much better musically, lyrically as his solo albums, what was not good, some yes, some songs yes but albums no, its like he catch pop rhythm, lost inspirations, can not compate whit Rainbow

BS days seems band was desperate get replacment asap and musician connections, friendship did the job
