Subtle Signs

Recommended Posts


Ronnie James Dio.

I got the call about 4 hours ago that Ronnie James Dio has passed away. I waited on reporting it til most intermediate family was told.

Dio, 67 had been battling stomach cancer and it was even reported earlier today that he was beating the disease.

I am sad to say he is not……we will have more information available shortly.

Blabbermouth just posted the following:

After rumors started circulating via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost his cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 11:35 p.m. PST on Saturday, May 15 / 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

"I am at the hospital and Ronnie has NOT passed away!!!! He is not doing

good, but he is not dead.

"I will let you know if anything changes.

"Thank you for your concern."

didn't think so because a real news place would have picked it up by now, gnite everyone. Ronnie get better soon!!!

It genuinely pisses me off that people start rumors like this. It's just plain tasteless and rude.

With that out of the way, Dio is still in my thoughts every day. He is my favorite frontman ever, and I hope to see him doing what he does best again.

From Dio's Facebook a few minutes ago:

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. Ronnie knew how much he

was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have

all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this

terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever. Wendy
