I'm stunned, and I was well aware of how sick he was, and of course its not like I ever met the guy.

But much of his work had a huge effect on me, I still remember the first time I heard the album Holy Diver, and have played his music nearly every damned day ever since.

Best concert I have ever been to was Heaven and Hell a couple years back, I felt it was a privilage just to be in the crowd he was performing for.

The world has lost one of the greatest talents to have ever lived, Long may he rock.

My sentiments too man, Im pretty numbed even though I didnt personally know him. The closest I came was words of encouragement via email a few years ago.
A DVD was planned to be released soon too that I was hoping to get.

That would be very debateable. Never heard of him.

A true legend he might have been small but his voice was huge, used to have a live version of Holy Diver on 45rpm one of the best tracks ever

HardRadio's MARTIN POPOFF, author of biographies on RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH and DIO had this to say on the passing of immense metal legend Ronnie James Dio: "Heavy metal has just lost its king, Ronnie James Dio. Sure, there will be more famous figures in hard rock that will pass, and the mainstream media will write about it and get it slightly wrong. But metalheads pride themselves on sussing out who is authentic, hard-working, pure of heart, creative and just the best to hang out with in any headbanging situation. And that was Ronnie. Despite his unparallel legacy, he was one of us, a headbanger. But the thing with Ronnie, action spoke louder than his always gracious words - he just kept building a bricks and mortar bunker of weighty, anchored metal, and kept doing it until he was stricken. Teenager through to 67, the work ethic and more spectacularly, that roaring golden voice, never wavered."

TONY IOMMI: "Yesterday 16th May my dear, dear friend Ronnie James Dio passed away at 7.45am LA time. I've been in total shock I just can't believe he's gone. Ronnie was one of the nicest people you could ever meet, we had some fantastic times together. Ronnie loved what he did, making music and performing on stage. He loved his fans so much. He was a kind man and would put himself out to help others. I can honestly say it's truly been an honor to play at his side for all these years, his music will live on forever. Our thoughts are with Wendy Dio who stood by Ronnie until the end, he loved her very much. The man with the magic voice is a star amongst stars, a true professional. I'll miss you so much my dear friend."
