Week In Retrospect - Sunday 16. May

Posted by EW on 17/05/10

It's been a busy old week this one with many albums reviewed for you below but it all pales into consideration against today's sad news of the passing of one Ronnie James Dio. I appreciate not all reading this will be metal fans, let alone fans of his works with the likes of Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell, but the sheer likable character of the little man will live on for many years to come. If you need any testament towards the man's persona, watch the excellent film "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" and you'll see what I mean. RIP! Various others news titbits to be found in the archive and remember to join our facebook page too if you haven't already.
