    RIP Ronnie James Dio

    Apparently the legend has passed. Heard it on SXM Liquid Metal. None of the metal websites have picked it up yet though. So, I guess this is rumor at this point. I'm a basket case right now. He's always been a major influence for me.

    Well, now Blabbermouth is saying it's not true. Sirius XM has some explaining to do if they are mentioning it on air and their employees are saying he's dead on their facebook page.

    Guess we'll find out in the morning.

    Only concert I ever walked out on.

    Came to see the warm-up bands, which were both great.

    But, he and his band sucked.

    I take that back. I walked out on Boz Skaggs, too, but the difference was that I actually went to see Boz Skaggs, but his concert sucked, too.

    RIP. His wife posted this on his website:

    Message from Wendy Dio
    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 Dio

    His two albums with Sabbath are some of my favorite from their discography... I only wish they were recorded better but he was awesome.
