How legendary of a singer is Ronnie James Dio? So great that your grandmother might have thought the same thing. Ronnie and the Redcaps released this single in 1959, with Dio handling vocals, bass and trumpet. A metal gods beginning.

That's really quite amazing, especially at just 17. Also it's great to see that he had such a varied taste in music, epecially when may fans of his 1970s/80s form wouldn't even consider listening to that sort of thing. A very talented singer and a true legend in his own time, RIP RJD.
