Dio: Dreamers Never Die

Dio: Dreamers Never Die

This career spanning documentary on heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio delves deep into his incredible rise from 50's doo-wop crooner, to his early classic rock days in Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, to replacing the iconic lead singer Ozzy Osborne in Black Sabbath, to finally cement his legend with DIO. Ronnie's biography is completely unique to the tired sex, drugs and rock and roll cliches. The film is about perseverance, dreams and the power to believe in yourself.

    A great documentary. WATCH IT NOW!
    I remember first time I heard a song with Dio signing on it. It was Black Sabbath Neon Knights. Was always a Sabbath fan, so I was excited to hear a new song because there was the rumors of them breaking up (1980).

    At first I was like "this isn't Black Sabbath", but then totally knew it was because of the godlike guitar riffage of Tony Ionmi. Then I was blown away and that monstrous voice! I remember me and a buddy sat there, silent, grinning like idiots. I was instantly a fan after thinking I wouldn't like Black Sabbath without Ozzy.

    And, hilariously, there was a scene just like that in the movie. I almost died laughing.

    But the movie is killer. From his first Elvis sounding band in the 50s through every band until his death.

    Wendy Dio did a fantastic job with this documentary and have such a great gift to all Dio's fans.

    I had seen him a bunch of times. He was always so great to his fans. He'd get right down there with everyone, shaking their hands and hugging them. Such an awesome person and so non typical for a star.

    And I'm my opinion, Dio was THE best metal voice of all time. He is sorely missed.

    Merely for the headstuck diofans and all their offspring that have had to grow up in the musical sphere, a realm of mystique and immortal balanced and executed vocals, all from crib to death. I got the news of ronnie james dios death at an ironmaiden gig, and that sent shivers through the crowd.

    I remember the allmost fearsome intros to the ''holy diver'' and ''dont talk to strangers'' cause they were only there to do YOU harm, they are just sensational those songs, the rest got drown for my part in all the other 80's music, but i still get the sting each tme i hear dios voice.

    So if you like heavy metal music with loads of riff raff repetition then this documentary is for you, the grumpy old man recommends highly.
