Ronnie James Dio dead at 67

Metal legend Ronnie James Dio dead at 67 after battle with stomach cancer

Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager. He was 67.

Dio revealed last summer that he was suffering from stomach cancer shortly after wrapping up a tour in Atlantic City, N.J. with the latest incarnation of Black Sabbath, under the name Heaven And Hell.

"Today my heart is broken,’’ Wendy Dio wrote on the singer's site, adding he died at 7:45 a.m. "Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes before he peacefully passed away.

"Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all,’’ Wendy Dio continued. "We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us ... Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever."

The statement was confirmed by Los Angeles publicist Maureen O'Connor.

Dio rose to fame in 1975 as the first lead singer of Rainbow, the heavy metal band put together by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who had just quit Deep Purple.

Dio then replaced legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath in 1980 with the critically acclaimed album "Heaven And Hell,’’ considered by many critics to be one of the finest heavy metal albums of all time. His on-again, off-again tenure with Black Sabbath touched off an intense debate among fans as to which singer was the true essence of the band — a discussion that lasted until his death.

He also enjoyed a successful solo career with his self-titled band, Dio, in between his three stints with Black Sabbath (1980-82; 1992; and 2007-2009, when the band toured as Heaven And Hell, to differentiate it from Osbourne-led versions of Sabbath).

Many of his most memorable songs revolved around the struggle between good and evil, including his signature tune "Heaven And Hell.’’ He also drew heavily on medieval imagery in songs like "Neon Knights,’’ "Killing The Dragon’’ and "Stargazer.’’

"He possessed one of the greatest voices in all of heavy metal, and had a heart to match it,’’ said Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French, whose band toured with Dio since 1983, and was to do so again this summer at European rock festivals. "He was the nicest, classiest person you would ever want to meet.’’

Dio organized an all-star charity collaboration in 1986 called "Hear N’ Aid’’ to raise money for famine relief in Africa, styled on the successful "We Are The World’’ campaign of a few years earlier.

His solo hits included "Rainbow In The Dark,’’ "The Last In Line’’ and "Holy Diver.’’

LOL That was my initial reaction to this news too.

"Heaven and Hell" and "The Mob Rules" were two of my favorite albums of that era.

That's too bad. RIP

I was lucky enough to see him in the 80's on the Mob Rules tour with Sabbath and again on the Holy Diver tour. Unfortunately, by the time I got to see Rainbow (one of my favorite bands when I was in high school), he was gone and I got to see Joe Lynn Turner instead.

If you're a fan of Ronnie James Dio, and are saddened by his death, please consider a donation to Children of the Night as a way to say "thank you" to Dio. During his life Dio worked hard to support Children of the Night and strongly believed in their cause. (Listen to "Throw Away The Children" from the Killing the Dragon CD for an example.) Instead of giving flowers, why not give where it can make a difference that Dio believed in?

I was so hoping this wasn't true. Dio was an amazing vocalist. I was watching an episode of that metal show on vh-1 where Dio was a guest and he came off as such a really down to earth cool person. I haven't felt this bummed out about a musician dieing since Joe Strummer passed away. R.I.P

Just a heads up for all the Dio fans (obviously not Milkman).

For those of you who have XM/Sirius...Eddie Trunk is doing a special Dio tribute show on XM 53/Boneyard. I think it started at 5 Central time. He is playing some Dio tunes and has some great guests on talking about their memories of Ronnie.
