Vertically Challenged Playlist

This one pretty much explains itself I reckon. I actually saw Ronnie James Dio a couple years ago and was blown away. He really packs a whallop. But it's true: he's a diminutive gentleman. He even had a rule that the guys in the opening band aren't supposed to stand on the monitors (allegedly only he is supposed to take advantage of their vertical benefits). I guess there's gotta be two sides to every bell curve, and the folks in the populous middle gonna crack jokes about those at either end.
