Same here I love the Dio, in fact I was just watching some interviews with him a few days ago about his days with Sabbath, and his first solo album, I respect him, admire him, only thing is I don't put him on the same pedestal as Ozzy, never have, never will, sorry just how I personally feel, but to each his own guys, to each his own.
And as for the devil horns thing, not that I don't give credit to the Dio, but Gene Simmons did that thing way back in the 70's, or at least a variation of it anyway, maybe even before Dio did it I believe, I mean I am not sure on that 100%, considering Dio was in Elf as far back as 1967, so if Ronnie was doing the devil thing even then, then he is the originator of that little signature move with the devil horns, if not then perhaps Gene was, if anyone has any further info I am curious to know who had their hand at it first, no pun intended, let me know??????????
