Dio Is Dead

Dio is dead. Long live Dio.

One of the gods of heavy metal music, if not the god of the form, has left this mortal coil for the realm of sorcerers and warriors.

Earlier today, Ronnie James Dio passed away peacefully in his sleep from complications of stomach cancer. He was 67.

The musician, singer and songwriter performed in a multitude of bands, but most notably in Rainbow, as Ozzy Osbourne's replacement in Black Sabbath and with his namesake Dio. He popularized the 'devil horns' as a symbol for heavy metal.

We have lost a legend and he will not be forgotten. Rock on and rest in peace.
