I'm part of that lucky generation that got into metal when Nu Metal was all the rage... Alien Ant Farm for BOA

Much of this is due to the "Metal " Press at the time
Over the years Ive seen Phil Collins, Kate Bush, Michael Jackson, Prince,Then Jericho, Eminem among the artists we have to listen to because K/MH etc said we had to
Sure some forms of metal go out of vogue, but poor Dio`s stock couldn't have got much lower in the mags until he appeared in some trendy Jack Black flick. I do wonder how many of the people who called him crap over that period now sing his and the Scorpions praises?
Be your own person I guess is the biggest lesson in this, I certainly dont like PD among others but i`d never say to someone you cannot listen to them

I wasn't even aware that Dio was ever the source of ridicule. I always thought that he was someone that everyone respected in the industry. That's possibly due to that when I was getting into metal in early 2000s, magazines had stopped even mentioning classic rock/metal bands and were all focused on the nu and then the emo crap. Plus my parents were massive Dio fans and took me to see him multiple times when I was a youngster so I only ever remember positive things regarding him
