    No, but after he raped Greggs' owl, he was known as Owly Powelly for a while.

    Apropos of nothing at all I played football at the under 16 level against Barry Powell. His mates always said that when everybody else was off home, him and a guy called Geoff Brady would carry on kicking a ball under the lamppost light until they were dragged in by their parents. Everybody knew he was destined to go far.

    Be honest - did you look at Magwitch's post and decide to copy, but use the correct spelling?

    No I didn't. I saw it as I scrolled down to see if anyone had got it yet.
    His real name was Colin

    Stein was my favourite player along with Oakey and later Ferguson.

    Cozy Powell was very famous in the 70s

    As an aside, I am pretty sure that I saw Cozy Powell drum fro Dio at De Montfort Hall. Could be nonsense though.

    It's a trick question - Barry Powell is the only known footballer who never had a nickname.

    May have been thinking of his time with Black Sabbath - who I didn’t see. Maybe I saw him when he was with Gary Moore?

    it was Vinnie Apiche with Dio (I think)

    He was in rainbow in late 70’s when Dio fronted but Powell did drum for Sabbath in the late 80’s

    He and Dio didn't get on. It was handy timing for him to fall off his horse when Dio rejoined Sabbath in the early '90s.

    I have the Rainbow Rising album. Hence the mix up I think even we can both agree that it’s a cracking album

    Apparently Vivian Campbell left Dio as little Ronnie kept toning down his guitar on the mixing process. Great guitarist. I met him and Ronnie, and Jimmy Bain after a gig. Nice fella. Ronnie was indeed quite diddy.

    They all turned up again to do a tribute to Dio after he died. Not sure about the singer, but good to see Campbell actually doing heavy stuff rather than his Def Leppard thing.

    Dio didn’t get on with a lot of people. In the very non political correct era in 1980 Ozzy performed at Coventry at had a mutant dwarf come on to provide him a drink “look everyone here’s Ronnie”
