10) Ronnie James Dio
The guy that made geeky themes like Dungeons and Dragons cool and who’s smaller physical frame was juxtaposed with a tremendous voice and range. Whether fronting Sabbath, his own solo band, or later Heaven and Hell, Ronnie always had a vocal style all his own and lyrics that struck the inner comic book or D&D enthusiast in all of us. Even Tenacious D paid the ultimate tribute to him in their full-length film, The Pick of Destiny. Great stuff all around!
The absolute best electric guitars to own under $1000.
