Just yesterday (May 16), the heavy metal icon, Ronnie James Dio, passed away. It is a regrettable loss to his loved ones (first and foremost), as well as his fans and the whole metal community. He is a brilliant musician, taking part in the biggest bands including Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and his own project Dio. But his kind spirit and respectful nature is no less remarkable. Anything that has been said about Dio has been positive. I have seen him twice in concert and to say he is a polite man is a grand understatement.
To his close friends and family: we all wish you the best. May this wonderful man live on forever in our hearts.
