Ryan Adams, husband of Mandy Moore and writer of many wistful, romantic, alt-country songs, continues to be bitten by the metal bug. The singer said that he has written an album of new material that was inspired by the late, great Ronnie James Dio, who passed away last month after a long bout with stomach cancer. Adams attended RJD's funeral and revealed on his Facebook page that he quickly penned 11 new songs after the service. "Day after Dio's funeral, they just fell out. Soft mellow acoustic jams -- lots of New Orleans scenery and vibe from the trip," Adams wrote. I wish more musicians in this indie world admitted their inspiration from the metal world.
What is your favorite Dio song? Do you respect what Adams is doing in the metal realm?
