Pour One Out For: Ronnie James Dio 7/10/1942 – 5/16/2010

At 7:45 this morning, the metal Gods took it upon themselves to take one of the greatest vocalists of the genre on a one way trip to Valhalla.  That man was Ronnie James Dio

There has been a lot of confusion about the truth surrounding this horrible announcement.  However, the metal warriors of RBM have uncovered the facts direct from the Holy Diver’s website.

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

Words can’t express the sheer sadness that is spreading throughout the metal community.  We all send out deepest sympathies to the Dio family, and vow to keep his music playing while the fancy alcohol flows.  He deserves nothing but the best.

Farewell Great-One! \m/
