Ronnie James Dio passed away

Sad news for fans of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. Ronnie James Dio passed away at 7:45am today from stomach cancer. He was one of the greatest performers in any genera. No one had a voice or stage presence like his. The first time I heard him was on the Rainbow album "Long Live Rock & Roll (Polygram) 1978." He then spent a stint with Black Sabbath before going solo with his own band. I got to see him in concert a few times over the decades. He never failed to blow everyone away. Ronnie also gave us the Heavy Metal salute.

We will miss you, Ronnie.
