RIP, RJD. Your awesomeness was easily six times your physical size.

Back in '06, Vh1 ran a four-hour documentary on this history of heavy metal. Found it on YouTube and quickly downloaded it before Viacom could have it taken down. So far, two people who appeared on it (Ronnie and Kevin DuBrow) have died. I'm afraid that in another ten years, I'll be rewatching it and going "Cancer...cocaine...tertiary syphilis...hit by a bus...actual old age...murdered by drummer" when the camera cuts back to a talking head.

RIP, Ronnie.
