Rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio

Post by DJMurphy » Sun May 16, 2010 10:21 pm

Man, the ones you think will be around until they're in wheelchairs, still rockin' in their Depends... gone. Stomach cancer. Not cool. My deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and fans.

His wife's statement, on his website.

Greg Kot in The Chgo Tribune.

Ronnie in happier times dissing Viv Campbell.

I almost posted this with a tacky "Dio Beats Ozzy to Death" header, but thought better of it.

Ride the tiger in peace tiny man.

He truly is a rainbow in the dark. Honestly, though, Rainbow's best singer? Any 70s metal fans out there? Can I get an "Amen"?

I was expecting to come here this morning and see that very header. Kind of glad it wasn't there.

Rest in peace little guy. I certainly won't call myself a regular listener, but I will say you made some of the most hilariously awesome music videos ever.

With that said, I offer the following in tribute:

She's like a homely version of Sarah Palin, you know, that kinda thing.

Yeah, I dig how there's the red banner on the video saying that all comments were disabled due to uncivility among Dio's fans. It's probably more just that most right-minded people don't like a judgmental fuck yapping on and on about how she knows, she has some sort of insight into the divine mind of God (how did this loser get THAT?) that Ronnie is in hell. Really? You sure you want to go there?

Go home Church Lady; go give your sermons to your fifty cats. 'Cause we don't wanna hear it.
