It still breaks My heart that Ronnie James DIO is no longer with US. I know that there are other threads related to Ronnie, however, I wanted to start a new one because He deserves all that His loyal fans can and do really appreciate.

 

From what I have seen, read and heard, RJD really Loved and Appreciated His fans from all over the World. I had the privelage to see him twice and even got to shake His hand when He came offstage to greet all His fans.

 

After Robert Plant, Ronnie James DIO is my favorite Singer.

 

LONG LIVE RONNIE JAMES DIO!!!

Ronnie James Dio Remembered On Tenth Anniversary Of His Death

index.jpeg.526d31211b087d9f16d6d84e3681ef76.jpeg

Legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio, best known for his work with Black Sabbath, Rainbow and his own band Dio, died of stomach cancer 10 years ago (May 16, 2010) at the age of 67.

Dio was renowned throughout the world as one of the greatest and most influential vocalists in heavy metal history. The singer, who was recording and touring with Sabbath offshoot Heaven and Hell prior to his illness, was diagnosed with stomach cancer in late 2009. He underwent chemotherapy and made what is now his final public appearance in April 2010 at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles.

A free public memorial service was held on May 30, 2010 at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills Cemetery in Los Angeles, attended by more than 1,500 fans, friends and fellow musicians.

In March 2011, it was announced that the surviving members of the final lineup of Dio would embark on a project with former Judas Priest frontman Tim "Ripper" Owens under the name Dio Disciples.

Ronnie James Dio, real name Ronald James Padavona, was born in New Hampshire on July 10, 1942.

He moved to Cortland, New York at a young age, where he began playing with local acts. A street in Cortland, Dio Way, was named after him in 1988.

He released his first single, with a band called Ronnie and the Redcaps, in 1959.

His first heavy rock act, Elf, released three albums and opened for Deep Purple, where Dio's voice caught the ear of guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. Blackmore recruited Dio for his own band, Rainbow, after leaving Purple in 1975.

Dio recorded three studio albums and one live set with Rainbow before exiting in 1978, including "Rising" and "Long Live Rock and Roll".

He replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath in 1980, recording the "Heaven and Hell" and "Mob Rules" albums, plus "Live Evil", before leaving in 1982. He rejoined the group ten years later for an album called "Dehumanizer" , and again teamed with the group under the Heaven and Hell banner in 2006. Heaven and Hell released and album called "The Devil You Know" in 2009.

He also recorded 10 studio albums with his own band, Dio, including a classic 1983 debut, "Holy Diver", and an equally renowned follow-up, 1984's "The Last in Line".

Dio was also behind the Hear N' Aid project, a collection of metal artists who recorded the track "Stars" in 1985 to raise funds for African famine relief.

Rock and metal musicians around the world paid tribute to Dio in the weeks and months following his death. Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor shared his feelings with The Pulse Of Radio about the fallen metal icon. "When I got the news that he had passed away, man, it seriously -- it broke my heart. It broke it in two. Because honestly, I just feel like there will never be another Ronnie James Dio. He had such a pure voice -- and still singing his ass off. I just know he'll be missed, adn I will miss him as well".

Ex-Van Halen and current Sammy Hagar & The Circle bassist Michael Anthony also shared his memories of Dio with The Pulse Of Radio. "I don't know anybody that didn't grow up listening to his stuff," he said. "You know, Van Halen, we used to do from the first Rainbow album, we did "Man on the Silver Mountain". I remember one time, the second Van Halen tour we were doing some festivals in Europe, and we actually played on the same show as Ronnie's band. Real powerful voice, you know, and definitely a driving force in hard rock music, that guy was."

Slash told The Pulse Of Radio that he felt the loss of Dio very keenly. "He's just somebody I was influenced by," he said. "I played all the Rainbow stuff, I played the Dio stuff, the Sabbath stuff when I was in, you know, high school. I don't think that it's really set in what a, you know, huge figure in rock n' roll we lost, you know. Really major. Probably one of the most influential heavy metal singers of all time."
