Unfortunatly very overlooked band. They have Ritchie Blackmore (original Deep Purple guitarist) and Ronnie James Dio (needs no introduction).
Their first 3 albums are some of the best 70s albums, in my opinion

Favorite songs: Temple Of The King, Catch The Rainbow, Man On The Silver Mountain, Stargazer, Long Live Rock N' Roll, Tarot Woman

Oh wait, why is Long Live Rock 'n' Roll in front of Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow? That doesn't make any sense.

This is probably my favorite band that Ronnie James Dio was a part of. What's incredible is that it was able to continue without him but getting other great vocalists like Graham Bonnet and Joe Lynn Turner. Blackmore is the foundation necessary for any band. He was also was the most important part of Deep Purple. Rising is my favorite album but just barely. Long Live Rock N' Roll is incredible as well.

Blackmore is my favorite guitarist of all time. Dio doesn't hurt either. This also featured the very underated Cozy Powell on the kit as well. Stargazer is one of the best Metal/Hard Rock songs ever created. No Metalhead should be without Rainbow Rising.

Ronnie James Dio and Ritchie Blackmore! Really, that's all that needs to be said.

This band has been totally overlooked by members here. Ritchie Blackmore formed the band when he left Deep Purple. I recommend Rising and Long Live Rock 'n' Roll to anyone who likes hard-driving 70s rock. Features Ronnie James Dio's best vocals.
