Gene credits himself from one album cover though. Ever see him use it at a concert during that time? Further more his explanation of why he uses it is of the way he holds his pick:

don't look that way to me :)

Dio gives his history about where he first saw (his Italian grandma) it and why he began to use it everywhere, that being because Ozzy always gave the peace sign and he wanted to do something different from that. From the logic of both these gentlemen I gotta give it to Dio.

But SG, why would you put anything on a pedestal? Didn't you see 40 year old Virgin? Nothing should be placed there...LMAO...
