adio, dio

ronald james padavona (1942-2010) was surely the only singer in history whose c.v. included both greasy '50s doowop and black sabbath. as augie rodriguez said, perhaps ronnie's jamming with cozy powell (see below, with ritchie blackmore's rainbow) as we speak. go easy, man.

I didn't realized that he died a few days ago. Quite sad indeed.

very sad. fella sure had one unmistakable, powerhouse of a voice. proof positive that physical height is not a determining factor in what makes a rock n' roll giant. R.I.P.
