We all need to thank Jon Morter for starting the campaign that made history. He started a Facebook group on December 13th 2009 along with his wife, Tracy. They managed to get Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name’ the number one spot at Christmas, beating Simon Cowell’s music machine. It would’ve been the fifth year in a row X Factor won the number one spot at Christmas.

The Facebook group has a massive 529,000 members and received support from celebrities such as Bill Bailey!!!

Well, I was one of the 40,000 lucky winners of a free ticket to see Rage Against the Machine gig at Finsbury Park on 6th June 2010! They rocked the park to it’s foundations!!! I couldn’t believe when they started playing the great classic ‘White Riot’ by The Clash.

Okay, I have to confess I wasn’t a huge fan of Dio. I never really liked Rainbow and being a great fan of Ozzy Osbourne, I didn’t have that wow thing everybody seemed to have when Dio joined Black Sabbath.

Having said that, I feel sorry to see another great legend leave us. Dio had one of the greatest voices in all heavy metal, poetic lyrics and popularised the iconic devil’s horn.

Although it’s difficult to see beyond sorrow today, looking back at all great moments in memory will help comfort you, fan, family and friend, tomorrow.

Good bye and rest in peace!
