The Greatest Rock Vocal Performance I’ve Ever Seen | Dio | Rainbow | Mistreated

By November 14, 2019No Comments

I had never seen today’s performance of “Mistreated” by Dio but man am I glad I finally did.

Dio brings it down at a whole other level and dare I say performs the tune better than the original and better than any of the live versions I’ve heard from Coverdale or Glenn Hughes.

Originally written by David Coverdale with fellow Deep Purple band member Ritchie Blackmore, “Mistreated” was released on their album Burn released in 1974.

It was actually the only song on the album where Coverdale sang the entire tune by himself.

When Blackmore ended up leaving Deep Purple to pursue other interests, he teamed up with Dio to form the band Rainbow.

As part of Rainbow, Dio put out this version of the same tune and this particular performance was done in 1977 at concert in Munich for a live album they put out.

I hope you enjoy today’s video and I look forward to hearing what you thought of the performance!

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
