Watch: Ryan Adams Covering Holy Diver By Dio

Written by Michael Carr on February 21, 2012

Last Friday in Los Angeles something amazing happened, Ryan Adams  covered Dio, most famous recently for cameos in both South Park and at the beginning of the Pick Of Destiny, playing their hit Holy Diver.

Now I’m not really a huge fan of either artist, but I am a huge fan of inappropriate genre covers. Think Ben Folds covering Bitches Ain’t Shit or anything by Richard Cheese and you’re in flavour country. Anyway here is the video below, as well as the original if you weren’t aware of it. The video is fucking epic and well worth a watch.
