Ronnie James Dio Passed Away 7:45am May 16, 2010

“We’re a ship without a storm, cold without the warm, light inside the darkness that it needs. We’re the laugh without the tear, hope without the fear. We are coming home.”

Ronnie James Dio, born Ronaldo Giovanni Padovan July 10th, 1942, died May 16, 2010 at the age of 67. He began his music career in the late 1950s and went on to be the permiere rock n’ roll vocalist, song writer and musician. Dio rose to fame fronting the heavy rock band Rainbow before leaving in 1979 when replaced Ozzy Osbourne as Black Sabbath’s lead vocalist from 1979 to 1982 and then again in 1991-1992. He also recorded three new songs for Black Sabbath: The Dio Years in 2006.

Dio released several albums with Sabbath, Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules and Live Evil. Dio continued to rock us until he could no longer perform due to his failing health.

He has influenced all of rock n’ roll and will be very missed.

Rock in Peace
