    Mob Rules had some great songs as well, but I agree.

    I had to really dig in to find out who the line-up was...

    They really worked hard to not make it evident that Rudy Sarzo is playing bass & Simon Wright on drums. Seems like they are trying to project the image of Bain/Appice in the video production... :shrug:

    line-up:
    Ronnie James Dio - vocals
    Doug Aldrich - guitar
    Scott Warren - keyboards
    Rudy Sarzo - bass
    Simon Wright - drums

    I had to look it up to figure out the keyboards & drums...

    Sounds good. It appears to have had some guitar overdubs, or they mixed in some wrong (overdubbed) video footage on Doug...

    I saw Dio w/ the original line-up 2 x's. We saw Last In Line a few x's. My brother filmed this (w/ his cheap camcorder) & I recorded the sound, w/ my Zoom recorder & mixed it in...

    I got to see Dio on the Angry Machines tour in a little 300 person club. It was so cool, did all my favorite sabbath tunes and some rainbow. Most of the show was him playing his pre-Dio stuff. He played it like he was playing a stadium, no holds barred. Tiny little man with a giant voice and presence.

    I got to see Dio a few times. The last one was a double presentation Dio and Whitesnake, I think the same band in the video. It was amazing.

    Dio is the greatest heavy metal singer of all times IMHO. There are lot's of big names that could match it. but it's not only about the voice, but the charisma and the personality. for that, I think if I have to choose one singer that really represents everything I believe about heavy metal it's DIO and he will be forever missed.

    That is another favorite. I like the two equally even though different.

    80-81 was a really special moment. Ozzy got fired and then released 2 of the greatest records of all time as a solo artist. Dio joined Sabbath and released at least one, and arguably two, of the greatest records of all time.

    I listened to Heaven and Hell so much I burned thru multiple cassettes. My lousy middle brother saw Sabbath tour Heaven and Hell and didn't even offer to take me, and he was the one who turned me on to Sabbath in the first place. Total D-bag.

    I'm really pissed off at myself for not seeing the H&H reunion tour. Really dumb to not make that happen.

    Bill Ward was really in the groove on Heaven & Hell. He couldn't tour, so they got Vinny to play & he played on Mob Rules. made for a different feel.

    The also did Live eviL, which ended up splitting the band up during production, so Dio went off w/ Vinny & started Dio w/ Vivian & Jimmy Bain...

    Tony & Geezer went back to the drawing board... & ended up w/ Ian & got Ward back again...

    Once again, Ward couldn't tour, so they got Bev Bevan...

    Iommi went through a lot of different line-ups & CBS insisted that he call each & every one Black Sabbath, even when he didn't want to anymore...

    A lot of under-rated music from Iommi & circle over the years.

    1 line-up, in particular was:



    Tony Martin - vocals
    Iommi - guitar
    Bob Daisley - bass/lyrics
    Eric Singer - drums
    Geoff Nichols - Keys (played on a lot of Sabbath stuff over the years)

    It's an interesting thing to A-B Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. The production on both is spectacular, but MArtin Birch is probably my favorite producer of all time.
    But the drum sound on Heaven and Hell (probably Slingerland) is just destroyed by Vinnies sound on the next album, which are so obviously Ludwigs it's not even funny. And he's got a huge, wide open sound, which is not how I'd describe H&H at all. They're both great, I'm just s bit of a production geek esp when it comes to drum sounds.
    While I am not as enamored with DW drums as the rest of the world seems to be, Vinnies sound in the video I posted is friggin epic. Way better than the average DW player, IMO. He's one of the the All Time Badasses and gets wayyyy too little credit and I've never fully understood that.

    that was Simon Wright on drums... (in OP video)

    That's why I was saying, they were trying, w/ the video editing, to give the impression of Bain/Appice, when it was Sarzo/Wright...

    Once upon a time I played w/ Vinny. (a few years back) He's a great drummer & cool guy...

    yeah, the only thing is the terrible recording sound/production. Musically, the whole album is good to go...

    Really. It almost looks like he used Vinnies kit minus the weird side toms.
