Former Rainbow and Black Sabbath singer Ronnie James Dio died earlier today, aged 67, after a battle with stomach cancer.
The first gig I ever went to was to see his own band, Dio, in 1985 at the legendary Glasgow Apollo.
But even by then, RJD had been making music for more than a quarter of a century.
His first single, with the band Ronnie and the Red Caps, was released in 1958. This one, An Angel Is Missing, is from 1960:

And finally, the wonderfully cheesy video for their 1985 single Rock ‘n’ Roll Children:

Perhaps with one eye on the buzz being generated by the much-anticipated live-action Marvel Comics Avengers movie, the Cartoon Network has ordered 26 episodes of Marvel Super Hero Squad. The team in the animated adventure will feature Captain America, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Wolverine and Iron Man, several of whom are also lined up to appear in the live-action movie currently in pre-production. The half-hour show is expected to premiere later this year.
