His Name Was Dio: Ronnie James Dio 1942 - 2010

Dio  The world of heavy metal music lost a legend today with the passing of Ronnie James Dio.

Dio was 67 years old and he lost his battle with cancer at 7:45 this morning.

The guy that gave metal music the goat - or the devil horns -  and front man for Dio, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Elf and Heaven and Hell will be mourned by music fans all over the globe.

Dio
 

Ronnie James Dio was only 5' 4" but he could rock an arena like he was 10 feet tall.

Our thoughts are with his wife Wendy and the rest of his family today.

. . . . .

Goon Squad Sarah saw Dio live with Black Sabbath in 1992. He was a bad ass. She also thanks Laurie for letting her write this one. It means a lot to her.

Best post title, ever. Made me laugh through my mournful tears.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Aw, thanks Naomi. I'm sad too.

Trish

Is is wrong that when I heard this news I said oh no! and then immediately thought of you Sarah and wondered how you were taking it?

No? Whew.

The kids at my store looked at me funny when I read the news and said how sad it was. Damn kids these days, no taste in music. Good taste at least.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

I think it is sweet.

He sang about the devil alot. Let's hope he's not checking into the Hotel Inferno. I was looking at his Wiki page, and it says he was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Now, there's a hot bed of devil worship.

For some reason it sticks in my mind that he lived in a castle in Spain for a while. Just one of those silly "facts" we carry around with nothing to tie it to. Anyway, Rock on, Ronnie. :::devil horn fingers:::

Rock In Peace Ronnie (because somehow I just don't see him resting even in the afterlife).

You can't stop him turning.

Laurie

I can't LET you do that which is meant for you to do. Priorities, dude. And thanks. xo.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

@Laurie - No. Thank YOU.

I love you, man.
