RIP Ronnie James Dio

Postby Chukkz » Mon May 17, 2010 6:15 am

The legenday Rock & Heavy Metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio passed away yesterday at the age of 67 (apparently as several sources say so, until this day to my knowledge his real age was never revealed) after he was diagnosed with cancer last year. He did not only become famous for his work as the first singer of the band Rainbow, but also as vocalist for Black Sabbath after they kicked Ozzy out and for his solo work under his last (artistical) name, Dio. He also had a short but very good musical appearance in the Tenacious D movie "The Pick of Destiny", playing himself.

After a bit of confusion about his state of health yesterday, his wife Wendy Dio announced the sad news on the official webpage later that day.


Rest in Peace and rock forever.

Gods aren't meant to die! :cry:

I was wondering why someone Re-Tweeted Gary Busey (sp?) saying something about him being the only guy to go to heaven and hell... I guess now I know.

This sucks. :x
