Justify it however you may point is still that it is disrespectful, but people who only see dollar signs have no idea of what respect is anyway.
How about Dio's passing bringing old chums back together to play songs they all wrote together nearly 30 years ago? How about Dio's passing has reminded them how fragile life is? Sure money is the root, but still his passing has brought them all together again be it positive or negative.
