Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale loves Ronnie James Dio. And here’s why

Was it the voice? The songs? The sense of humour? According to Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, it was all three and more that made Ronnie James Dio the ultimate metal icon

He's the standard for metal singers

“Everywhere I go, people still talk in the most respectful terms of Ronnie and how much he means, so he absolutely remains the man everyone wants to emulate – or try to emulate. That’s not just with his vocal style, but also with the way he behaved as a frontman. I was talking to David Draiman of Disturbed recently, and he said that he got the way he talks to an audience from the way Ronnie used to do it. So, on any level you mention, Ronnie is the person we all look up to as being the ultimate singer and stage performer. No one has replaced him.”
