RIP - Ronnie James Dio by ChristopherPayne RIP - Ronnie James Dio by ChristopherPayne
Fans of Ronnie James Dio will understand this piece, without explanation.

Ronnie was not only widely considered the Godfather of heavy metal, but all I have ever known to have met him, have said he was the consumate gentleman...humble...and loved his fans.

He was 67 when he passed away from stomach cancer on Sunday morning. I've never felt a loss like this from a music artist before. It's hard to believe he is gone.

RIP - Ronnie James Dio

i met him in 2000 on the magica tour, hell of a nice guy. talked with him about 10 minutes before security tried to rush me along and get me out of there, Ronnie stopped him and made sure to sign the huge stack of album covers i brought in with me
