Ronnie James Dio - Stomach cancerPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Ronnie James Dio of Rainbow/Dio/Black Sabbath/Heaven and Hell fame is in the early stages of stomach cancer. He is currently being treated at the Mayo Clinic.

I've been a huge fan of his since his Rainbow days in the mid 70's to the present. Best wishes to RJD and his wife Wendy in his battle against the cancer.

Awwww! My prayers are with him! Everything Ronnie James Dio reminds me of my youth; accepting his mortality means accepting my own, and I'm not prepared for that yet. : /

i have the wonderful memory of talking to him after his performance in Cleveland in 1996.

i also have a picture of the two of us with his arm around my shoulder and him throwing up the devil's horns.

what a guy! i'll miss him very much. Ronnie has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

thank you Ronnie for all those years of great music.

RIP RJD - one of the most Professional and Good People ever to take the stage.

At least I got to see him on the Black Sabbath Dehumanizer Tour in 1992 - he was awesome and one of the best performances I have ever seen.

Coolest midget ever!!!!


Seems like a good guy, but a guy who could hold a grudge. No matter, he's left a great body of work behind!!!


Truly one of the greats!!!



He will be missed.

Ronnie James Dio was a true heavy metal legend and a consummate gentleman to match.
What remarkable singing talent that man possessed. Certainly one of the best voices in rock.

I agree it's an old post but people still like the man. Bon Scott has been dead for 35 years but still remembered. In Kirriemuir where he was brought up until the age of 5. In 2006 they laid a stone plaque and bonfest music event was born and still on-going. Next year they are even erecting a bronze statue of him holding bagpipes.
