After a brief tenure with Black Sabbath during the late 70’s, Ronnie James Dio launched his own solo career in 1982 and did what every other marketable Heavy Metal musician longs to do, he named the band after himself.
Dio’s first album Holy Diver debuted at number 56 on the Billboard charts with help from single “Rainbow in the Dark”, whose accompanying music video aired regularly on a newly christened MTV.
However, his most enduring legacy remains the creation of the often overused “devil horns” hand gesture, which has since been brandished by both headbangers and posers alike.
Dio has also been referenced by many pop culture staples, including the likes of South Park, the Grand Theft Auto video game series, and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny.
