No. 1) Dio voice isn't enough abrasive and aggressive for thrash. 2) Why make him sing songs that require less vocal skills than his own songs? - Metal_Treasure

Ronnie can't do it... - Lucretia

I don't know Axl Rose doesn't have a Power Metal kind of voice. - BoredJeff02

Bobby Blitz Ellsworth Would Have A Great Voice For Power Metal - christangrant

I am very sceptical. My opinion is different from christangrant's - I think that Bobby vocal range and vocal skills are not sufficient for power metal. Power metal is vocal-oriented and power metal vocals are the most demanding in metal. Bobby is too far from Hansi, Michael Kiske, Tobias Sammet, Ralf Scheepers... - Metal_Treasure

Their level of musicianship is far from the metal standards. Not only the vocals but also their lead guitar, and so on. Nirvana musicianship is functional, nothing special. - Metal_Treasure
