No, I don't give a shit about his legacy in regards to what he's doing now.

Well, maybe you should listen to Sacred Heart again
The song or the album?

A great guy who takes himself way too seriously, apparently.

Well, mostly the song. But "Shoot, Shoot" makes me think I should include the rest of the album as well.

And has trouble writing interesting or creative lyrics? You got it.

The song owns, (especially that middle improv riff at the 2:01 mark when he plays it live).

No discussion.

Sacred Heart!?

So how many people here have seen Dio slay a cardboard dragon with a plastic lightsaber?

For the record, I've seen Dio live and loved it. Granted, that was almost 20 years ago, but still... when I went to see Maiden on the VXI tour, it was mostly because I wanted to see Dio (but alas, we arrived strategically late in order to miss WASP, and ended up missing Dio too).

No fucking kidding. It's good for everyone to see their sacred cows tipped every so often.


Also for the record, I never said Dio should hang it up, or stop writing about magic and mystery and colorful weather patterns. But it affects me because I care about music and I care about language.

And if people resist even engaging the question of whether their favorite artists' lyrics have merit or not, then I think that speaks poorly of people's willingness to engage with language -- which in turn impoverishes their thinking. So I'm just trying to work for ya'll mothafuckas' improvement.

Actually, now that I think about it, music is very personal to a lot of people, and not just the lyrics. And to hear some two-bit dick picking apart their band one by one could damn well be fighting words. I mean what is a fan supposed to do, take it?

It's Only Rock N' Roll, but I like it.
