Welcome to another edition of That ‘70’s Guy, where I’ll resurrect yet another classic hidden gem of the 1970’s. This time around, I will give my take on Montrose – Paper Money.

DIO-CEMBER VOL2 – Ep346

We close out the year in excellent fashion with DIO-CEMBER VOL2! We left off last week with Ronnie James Dio fronting Black Sabbath. Inasmuch as the chemistry was palatable, Ronnie needs and change and things pick up in 1983. The Holy Diver album is an absolute powerhouse because of its lineup. Guitarist Vivian Campbell, bassist Jimmy Bain, and drummer Vinny Appice were the perfect arsenal to back Ronnie up. Accordingly, the results are made clear…
