Ronnie James Dio’s ‘Childhood Home’ Up for Sale on eBay

Dio House

Admirers of the late great Ronnie James Dio, it’s time to load up your PayPal accounts and get bidding! According to an eBay listing, the legendary heavy metal singer’s childhood home is being auctioned off on the electronic bidding website — and the bidding starts at $90,000.

The seller of the house in Cortland, N.Y., notes that he “hopes that a TRUE Dio fan can get this house and enjoy owning a piece of heavy metal history. This is the house Ronnie grew up in, wrote songs in, had parties in, and played in!” His description goes to include stories of speaking to the singer, in which Dio recounts burying a trunk on the grounds.

What was in the trunk? We’re not sure — it’s still underground. So if you end up getting the house, dig that sucker up pronto, would you? We’re assuming it’s a dragon. The auction ends on Aug 31. That leaves just a few more weeks for your chance to move into a new home rich with heavy metal history.
