Re: Ronnie James Dio RIP.

That is a massive loss to the metal world. Dio was an awesome guy who's vocals screamed metal. I can't believe he has passed away...Truly a sad day.
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio.

Re: Ronnie James Dio RIP.

RIP Dio!!!!

Yep, he mentioned in an interview he got the 'horns' from his grandmother.   She would throw them at him and say "Snake Eyes" if he was being a bit troublesome as a youth.

Yep, will be sadly missed. For someone in his 60's he could still tear it up!

Ditto for me, except it was my buddy Rob's house and we were working on my MCS and his Robinson. Definitely one of the metal gods.
Rest in peace Ronnie.

Re: Ronnie James Dio RIP.

After rumors started circulating via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost his cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 11:35 p.m. PST on Saturday, May 15 / 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

"I am at the hospital and Ronnie has NOT passed away!!!! He is not doing good, but he is not dead.

That was sat. he maybe dead by NOW

Re: Ronnie James Dio RIP.

From Ronnie's web site:

Message from Wendy Dio

Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

- Wendy Dio

Re: Ronnie James Dio RIP.

I saw Dio with Heaven and Hell last fall in Cleveland and they were awsome,You would never know he was sick, I think the cancer was announced about a month after I saw them. He was one of the best frontmen of all time, Great performer and spokesman for Metal. R.I.P. Ronnie
