Ronnie James Dio dead at 67

Metal legend Ronnie James Dio dead at 67 after battle with stomach cancer

Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager. He was 67.

Dio revealed last summer that he was suffering from stomach cancer shortly after wrapping up a tour in Atlantic City, N.J. with the latest incarnation of Black Sabbath, under the name Heaven And Hell.

"Today my heart is broken,’’ Wendy Dio wrote on the singer's site, adding he died at 7:45 a.m. "Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes before he peacefully passed away.

"Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all,’’ Wendy Dio continued. "We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us ... Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever."

The statement was confirmed by Los Angeles publicist Maureen O'Connor.

Dio rose to fame in 1975 as the first lead singer of Rainbow, the heavy metal band put together by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who had just quit Deep Purple.

Dio then replaced legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath in 1980 with the critically acclaimed album "Heaven And Hell,’’ considered by many critics to be one of the finest heavy metal albums of all time. His on-again, off-again tenure with Black Sabbath touched off an intense debate among fans as to which singer was the true essence of the band — a discussion that lasted until his death.

He also enjoyed a successful solo career with his self-titled band, Dio, in between his three stints with Black Sabbath (1980-82; 1992; and 2007-2009, when the band toured as Heaven And Hell, to differentiate it from Osbourne-led versions of Sabbath).

Many of his most memorable songs revolved around the struggle between good and evil, including his signature tune "Heaven And Hell.’’ He also drew heavily on medieval imagery in songs like "Neon Knights,’’ "Killing The Dragon’’ and "Stargazer.’’

"He possessed one of the greatest voices in all of heavy metal, and had a heart to match it,’’ said Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French, whose band toured with Dio since 1983, and was to do so again this summer at European rock festivals. "He was the nicest, classiest person you would ever want to meet.’’

Dio organized an all-star charity collaboration in 1986 called "Hear N’ Aid’’ to raise money for famine relief in Africa, styled on the successful "We Are The World’’ campaign of a few years earlier.

His solo hits included "Rainbow In The Dark,’’ "The Last In Line’’ and "Holy Diver.’’

I routinely (at least once a month) listen to Rainbow's "Long Live Rock & Roll" album (Kill the Queen and Gates of Babylon are ****ing awesome) along with many other Dio records.

2002's "Killing the Dragon" is one of my all-time favorite Dio records. Doug Aldrich is the best guitarist he's ever had (including Blackmore and Viv Campbell, who is nothing more than a Gary Moore clone).

And the Heaven & Hell record was classic.

I'll truly miss him and music.

Not disagreeing about his music or his career.

Just took an opportunity to bitch about shitty radio stations...

I guess I misunderstood your post, I thought you meant he only had 2-3 good songs, which couldn't be further from the truth.

Other than rare occasions when I'm forced to, I haven't listened to music radio for over a decade.

I don't know who he is either, Mr. milkman. I was just pretending.

Sometimes I stand out in a parking lot and pretend to be a car. That's fun, too.

Are you so stupid that you can't even read teh ****ing language?

The "no loss" comment was in response to Reaper that I somehow missed out on something because I don't know who Dio is.

I didn't miss out on anything since Heavy Metal sucks nearly as much ass as you do.

I have never denied being a dick, so that's no big deal either, but my first post in this thread was not in anyway disrepectful.

It was honest.

I don't know who he is, but I offered a RIP.

Every other response was in response to other posters.

Edit:Oh, and the Whooptyfreakin'do comment was to Reaper's post telling me that he was the first to use the devil's horn sign.
I simply don't care, cause it just ain't worth caring about.

Just shut the **** up, dumbass.

The fact that I don't like Heavy Metal doesn't mean that I listen to that useless crap either.

But I bet your dumb ass could name every member of that group.

Um, no. Here's an idea. If you don't care about Heavy Metal or Heavy Metal legends, don't stick your pompous ass into threads where those of us that do care are paying our respects.

You're excused. Go away.
