Rock guitarist David Feinstein is the cousin of Ronnie James Dio. He joined Ronnie Dio & The Prophets as a rhythm guitar player, and the group eventually evolved into the band Elf.  Elf played until around 1975 when Ronnie joined Ritchie Blackmore’s band, Rainbow. In 1980 David went on to form The Rods and released many albums throughout the 80’s. David released his solo lp titled Bitten by the Beast. It featured a track called “Metal Will Never Die,” which is the very last recording to feature Ronnie James Dio’s vocals. In 2017 David recorded an album dedicated entirely to Ronnie titled Hail and Farewell.
