Any metal fans out there in the GB Community i'm sure will be sad to hear that legend that he is Ronnie James Dio has passed away. He will be missed.

He's not dead. It was a fake report. And whoever made the fake report I hope they fucking die themself because Dio is a legend.

Dio isn't dead, the rumors where denied by his wife. He's not in the greatest shape, by he's alive.

As confirmed by Ronnie's official website in a press statement by Wendy Dio, Ronnie has indeed passed away. 
 
Truly a sad fucking day for metal.  Our legends can't last forever, and this is a massive blow.  As a metalhead, Dio's version of Black Sabbath was one of the bands that got me hooked on the genre.  He was a pioneer and understood that metal was more than just a genre of music, but a lifestyle as well.  He lived it well, he sang it well, and he sure as fuck rocked it well. 
 
He will be greatly missed.

@Dysnomia: That was 13 hours ago,  he passed away a couple of hours ago
#25 Edited by Ace829 (2106 posts) -

No, he's not dead. It's a viral hoax according to this.
Edit: NVM he's gone. RIP

Dio's Sabbath was the musically superior Sabbath.

I'm not gonna lie:  I'm curious to see if Metal Hammer or Kerrang or anyone does a tribute CD...and how shitty most of the covers will be.  =  /

@jakob187: Well the only ones who can come close to Dio's voice are Bruce Dickinson and Rob Halford, so hopefully they WONT
