Dios and Dio

" [Dios member] Morales says that, even after the [2004] letter, he was still opposed to changing the band name [from Dios to something else], but went with Dios (Malos) after a long, arduous process in which Dio's lawyers shot down many proposed alternatives. "I thought we should've used the silliness of the whole thing to get our name out more, maybe not even change the name at all and let him sue us," says Morales. "It would've been hilarious and would've been a good story. But there were too many [wimps] in Camp Dios at the time, so no one wanted to go to war with me."

With a new record label, Buddyhead, supporting them, Dios is back to their original one-word name, boldly announced in the title of their new album, 'We Are Dios,' which drops in late July." [Spinner]

Anyone who says anything bad about Dio can bite me.

The man is a legend and probably immortal! Happy Birthday Ronnie James Dio! Look forward to listening to Dio for many years to come!

Then maybe he'll retire and write novels! :D
I'd buy them all!
