First, I’d like to apologize for the lack of content lately. It’s been a pretty crazy couple of weeks.
Second, Ronnie James Dio is dead. Horribly sad news, especially since Dio was still rocking hard just last year. Heaven & Hell’s 2009 album, The Devil You Know, actually kicked quite an amazing amount of ass. Anyway, here’s a statement from Dio’s wife, Wendy:
“Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45 a.m. [on Sunday] 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes 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.”
In that spirit, RAINBOW IN THE DARK!
