Dio does Doo-wop!

A friend of mine posted this one Facebook. Did not know about this. It's really good! And not just for shock factor. I mean, if I heard this on a comp I'd wonder whatever happened to them.

Was also not aware he was that old.

You could call it Dio-wop but that comes out as an unintentional ethnic slur.

That guy always seemed old :lol:

I've heard about his old recordings but never actually heard any it (never even heard any Elf either for that matter) and he sounds so different. Occasionally when he's singing a ballad like Rainbow Eyes or the opening to Sign of the Southern Cross, he'll croon a bit.
