    Why do you think that? Back then the real money was in the publishing, and he contributed to the songwriting as much as Blackmore.

    Doesn't necessarily mean he got paid for it. He would have had to set up his own publishing company that paid his publishing royalties directly to him. I doubt he was in a position to do that. It depends on the contract he signed when he teamed up with Ritchie....who was the one at the time that had the name and the upper hand. If Dio did something similar to Coverdale and signed whatever contract was given to him....Dio probably did not get compensated like he should have. I read an interview with Coverdale years ago where he said when he was given the contract to sign....he started to read it....the lawyers told him not to bother because unless he signed that contract....there was no contract at all.
