Though this installment on the state of Metal may seem to contain a bit of melancholy, its true purpose and message is to celebrate, pay homage, and bid proper adieu to our fallen heroes of
Metal. With their existence and contributions Metal is in a forever state of debt and gratitude.
In recent times the Metal community has suffered great losses with the passing of Ronnie James Dio, Riot’s Mark Reale, as well as Jon Lord (Deep Purple, Whitesnake) and Mike Star (Alice in Chains)
and Jani Lane (Warrant). In days past we lost such greats as Randy Rhoads (Ozzy), Bon Scott (ACDC), John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Cliff Burton (Metallica), Eric Carr (Kiss) and Diamond
(Dimebag) Darrell (Pantera). With each loss a great chasm was left behind in the world of Metal.
But at the same time a phenomenal string of accomplishments and Metal material remains for generations to hear, follow, and enjoy.The legacy of Randy Rhoads might only be contained in two studio albums, however, his attributes as a 6‐string axe hero continue to inspire and awe old and newcomers 30 years later. His playing was a quintessential milestone for both guitar and Metal. The passion of his life has endured long after his untimely passing.
Cliff Burton, unknowingly at the time, revolutionized a whole new persona for bass players everywhere. People took notice to the rumbling backbone and the position of the 4‐string long
scale changed forever. And what can’t be said about the late, great Ronnie James Dio? With a career spanning 40 plus years, pioneering the early days of Modern Metal with Dwarf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath and his solo efforts, to his charity works with Hear N’ Aid, to the reformation of the definitive Sabbath line up under his voice with Heaven and Hell, Dio was a man among men in Metal – the master’s master.
He was a prime example of integrity, creativity, unconformity, and unwavering commitment.
Dio found his calling and graciously shared it with the rest of us. He is surely missed. As it is often hard to think of our heroes as only mere mortals such as ourselves, their lives and
works stand as a symbol of endless hope and aspiration. The light they lit continues to burn bright and lead the way. Let’s all go into the light! R.I.P. \m/\m/
