Ronnie James Dio, one of the greatest vocalists in metal, died today. The music world is darker for his passing.

Wow... I did not know that. I've seen him quite a few times over the years. Not a very tall guy at all with a look of a crazed elvish, Popeye sort of character that could rip your face of with his amazing and powerful vocals.

Rest in Peace Ronnie, you will be missed.

Really? Wow. End of an era with him. Still love Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark. Sad news indeed.

It's such a shame. On planet rock radio, alice cooper said that he was supposed to be recovering and was set to do his UK tour at the end of the year :(

I had a proper little party of people ready to go, me, two of my best mates, my bro and 3 of his mates and my dad. It was gonna' bring people together around the metal epicentre that is Dio...

But I suppose that's the way that these things go :*(

"Forest Lawn Memorial-Park, Hollywood Hills 6300 Forest Lawn Drive WBC to picket this public memorial to remind you who worship that old Serpent, Satan, that your time is very short. You know 67 year old, Satan-worshiping (or at least one of their enablers) Ronnie James Dio (of showing his devil horns to the world each time he goes in public) Black Sabbath fame is dead, right? We'll be there! Just because the chances of any of God's elect being amongst this group of heavy metal sycophants is slim to none does not mean they should not get some good words. Yes, it is true that Ozzy Osbourne did "accidentally" bite off the head of a bat, but THAT is the least of their sins (little nasties!), they currently do not do that, but they throw raw meat to the audience and encourage violence of EVERY FORM! Here you have the list of admitted sins of this now dead and in hell pervert: 1) He hates his neighbor(s) starting with Ozzy Osbourne, and continuing down to his pornography star niece Gen Padova! 2) He hates God. Pay especial attention to the fact that he changed his original sir name from Padova to Dio, which means God in Italian. 3)Ronnie the simpleton enabled, and encouraged Sorceries: everything he was about including the little finger horn thing (he got this from his mother which is an incantation to ward off the "evil eye") to the drugs, bloody raw meat and his fellowship with those pentagram necklace wearing freakish band members. Yes, Ronnie James Padova (NOT DIO) is currently residing in hell. When all those who worship him and his false gods meet him in hell it will be just like this: Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Praise God all ye, His people. The Great Day of the Lord draws nigh. AMEN!"

WTF is this ********.

RIP Dio... KsE did Holy Diver better though, sorry ;)

Lie's and slander, Dio's way is the only way to listen to holy diver! KSE did a good cover, doing their own thing with it, even with the improved sound quality (holy diver was recorded in 1983 you know), it'll never be the same without Dio's voice singing over the top.

Nah, KsE owned that song.

I liked the Dio version better. :o

Nah, KsE owned that song.

Don't see how since Dio wrote it. KsE did a great cover of it, but well... it will always just be a cover.
