PostSubject: Ronnie James Dio has passed away...   16th May 2010, 10:47 pm

Ronnie James Dio, the metal god who replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath and later piloted the bands Heaven & Hell and Dio, has died, according to his wife and manager.

Dio announced last fall he was suffering from stomach cancer. He was being treated at a Houston hospital, according to his website.

"My heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45 a.m," said a statement by Wendy Dio posted Sunday on the site and confirmed by publicist Maureen O'Connor.

Wendy Dio said that friends and family were able to say their goodbyes to her husband, and asked for privacy. She concluded: "Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever."


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.

I was just going to post this...

I still can't believe it. We have just missed a great performer, one of the most important personalities in Heavy Metal... and a wonderful person.

Rest in peace, Ronnie...

All day long, it wasn't the air I smell, wasn't the wind I had to face with, wasn't the streets I march up and down every single day, wasn't the earphones I wear. It wasn't even the living I know nor the world I live in to look familiar by somewhere or sometime. Only to pay the last honors to this one singer the Lord wanted at his elbow, we walked by, and made the day.

At the moment I remember the time that Joey Ramone died. I still can't tell it throughly to anyone I try to let know; now you all know my friends;
you feel like the almighty Lord needed him to sing along more than you, and took him alongside before you get a chance to tell him;

"Please feel yourself home in me. Because I love you."

It had hurt. It hurts again.

a massive hole in my heart...

can't really describe my feelings right now..i woke up today,prepared for school,went there and saw Bet and believe it or not,when she said "Dio passed away" i was like "i knew it" even though i didn't,and then burst into if someone-some "magical mystical man"- came into my dreams and whispered to my ear:

"I can go away when I leave here I can be invisible
I said when I've gone away lord you know it's right to leave here
So I've just become invisible I've been away yes I've been before you rise
You never touch me you never feel me you'll never see me again because I've just become unseen"

that's all..he has just become unseen..

Ronnie is beyond any expressions;to me he was(and still is) one of my saviors,my heroes..he came into my life with Elf,and then Rainbow,Black Sabbath and Dio..i was amazed when i heard his voice,his style that makes every band he's in quite "Dioesque"..his wise and witty lyrics,his down to earth personality and passion for heavy metal music will live on forever..

god, i hate cliches,especially when it's about a loss, but i wanted to let my feelings out..lost a man who's probably the biggest influence on me and it feels like something's torn away from me,a huge metal beam has collapsed and fell off,left my home of all-things-heavy-metal ruinous..

yeah.."i've been left on my a rainbow in the dark."

RIP'll never be forgotten.
