is credited with bringing the devil horn salute into metal music??
Damn, i just finished seeing that Vh1 series and i already forgot. some guy from "Motley Crew" sounds like the person they mentioned
Burnzman loves his VH1.
nope, it wasnt anyone from the Crue.
and matty, yeah I admit I watch my vh1. the metal countdown was pretty interesting though.
I definately dont think it is motley crue....if you ask me its Black sabbath
i like vh1! but i have no idea who started the devil thing.....
First of all there was Black Widow a progressive group from England.
Then Black Sabbath. And some guy said that Jimi Page blesses Satan.
according to sfweekly.com it was Ronnie James Dio who made the devils horn salute big.
Yeah...I always heard it was Mr. Dio.... Or the Church Lady.
yup it was ronnie james dio who made the salute big. He first burst out onto the scene when he replaced ozzy in Black Sabbath...... then he had a huge solo career in the early 80s. He said he got the sign from his grandmother who would always do that to warn off evil spirits. Gene Simmons believes that he was the one who came up with the salute, because he used it on the Love Gun album in 1977. No one really invented it, because it was used in the dark ages..... Just Dio made it really popular, because he was synonymous with the salute.
Didn't Ronnie James Dio "burst onto the scene" with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow ?
well, he first joined Blackmore's Rainbow, but no one really knew him until he joined Black Sabbath in 1980. So, he really didnt BURST onto the scene, persay..... until he teamed up with black sabbath. He was more of a household name by then.
