Although the MetalSucks Mansion is located in NYC, our sister site, Gear Gods, is headquartered on the West Coast, and G² editor-in-chief Trey Xavier was able to attend the event. Below, watch video tributes from Wendy Dio, Eddie Trunk, Eddie Money (yes, that Eddie Money), Oni Logan, and Dio’s doctor, Sandy Kapoor… as well as some footage from Dio Disciples’ performance at the show itself. Trey says it “will melt your metal heart into a Terminator 2 – style puddle of shiny liquid,” but that honestly doesn’t even begin to describe how touching these are.
