RIP Ronnie James Dio

It's a sad day my fellow rockers. One of the greatest rock vocalists of all time, and the creator of my all time favorite hand signal (no it's not the finger), has passed after a battle with stomach cancer.

Ronnie James Dio is probably best known for taking the reigns of Black Sabbath after Ozzy Osbourne left. He did a great job, and recorded Heaven and Hell, one of my favorite Sabbath songs. He also went on to form his own band, Dio, which recorded many hits, such as Holy Diver, and Rainbow in the dark.

So here's to a true pioneer of Rock and F'N Roll.

RIP Dio, you will be missed..............

  1. Ya know.. I never knew who he was until he passed. Either way, I can't imagine stomach cancer. Cancer doesn't matter who you are... it just gets the best of everyone. RIP!
