PostSubject: Ronnie James Dio has passed away   Sun May 16, 2010 1:12 pm

Some of you probably already know it. But Ronnie James Dio, one of Metal founders, died on May 16th, at 7:45 am. Here is the note his wife, Wendy Dio, wrote on his official website.

"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"


He died from a stomach cancer. May he, one of the biggest Heavy Metal legends, never be forgotten and that his music will rock the world forever. Rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio.

I almost cried when I heard this earlier today. He is heavy metal, what more can be said? It is one of the saddest days in metal history for me, along with the deaths of Quorthon and Valfar. It is too much to take.
R.I.P Ronnie!

I admit, I shed manly tears when I read this and when it finally sank in. He influenced so many lives so no, he will never be forgotten.

May he rest in peace.

When a friend of mine sent me a link on msn i would have never imagined i would see such a thing. The news came as a great shock for me and surely the whole metal universe mourns this day just as we do. This loss is irreplacable but the least we can do is pay our respects. May he rest in peace

I have put his picture up on the left hand side of the page. If you click on it, it will link to his homepage. It's not much but I felt it deserved something on the site.

And I have been out of this world so badly that I heard it first time at Thursday. I just had a kinda... empty feeling for a while and then just came a silent ...fuck. R.I.P. R. J. Dio. And I got disturbed about those who try to make money from his death. Well one man I could forgive is Jorn cause I love his music too much. So I just blame assholic Frontiers.

you know at first i felt pretty moved when i heard Jorn's "Song for Ronnie James" tribute to Dio but when i heard somewhere that he had written and composed it almost a year ago (maybe the period Dio had cancer) i hated him a bit. Dunno if this is true, the source is just a youtube guy who has stated so in some comments. Anyway I'm not gonna buy the CD of course. Dio was the one and only, no matter how many tributes Jorn is gonna make i dont think someone really cares. None can be compared to Dio, remaking his songs is just a pathetic excuse to earn money.

Still I wouldn't blame Jorn for making money too much but his label Frontiers what is known to do that kinda stuff often. Doing a whole CD of Dio covers is tho a bad idea... Well have to listen to the new Masterplan album once i get it in my hands.

So sad to hear of this. Nobody sang like Ronnie James Dio. R.I.P.

They dropped down, one by one'
