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.

Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever. - Wendy Dio

It can’t be overstated what an incredible singer/songwriter Dio was. I was lucky enough to see him on the Mob Rules tour, twice solo and twice with the reunited Black Sabbath (Heaven and Hell). In my opinion the Holy Diver album is one of the best Rock/Metal albums ever made. He was a deeply intelligent man who lived for his music, not many out there like him.

He will be missed.

Hiya Brock! (Faded Natives) Good to see you.

The impact Ronnie had on music is quite a legacy. I have been reading forums all over with people who say much the same thing. Each personal experience, fascinating and touching as they are, all add up to a pretty cool human.

Someone said: If he aint in hell, there’s a pit in heaven…
