Horns Explained


Horns explained
Originally uploaded by Charrmer.
Finally, the mystery of the Devil Horns and it's relationship rock n'roll has been explained-- somewhat anyway.
What we now know is this... Back in the 70's a guy named Ronnie James Dio, formerly of Black Sabbath, formerly of Rainbow, formerly of Elf and now in his own band aptly titled "Dio" was on stage and did it. He continued to do it at successive shows and it became his trademark until it caught on and is now seen on rocker hands held high all across this lovely world of ours.
The only thing that still remains a mystery is the why of it... why did he do it the first time. That we may never know. ;)
I bet these guys seen at a recent Pennywise show just do it they think it's cool... except for the renegade in the bunch who chose to shoot a bird for the camera instead.

I met Ronnie once, he is one little dude, nice but small, that was a strange evening because I also met Jeff Keith and another member of Tesla as well as the manager for Poison. and I don't remember any devil horns that night.
