Post RIP Ronnie James Dio
:shock: Damn hope its nothing serious... He's up there in age...


DIO — the band fronted by legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio (HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) — has cancelled its previously announced European tour after Ronnie was taken ill. "Ronnie has been hospitalized and we are waiting for further news," the singer's wife/manager Wendy Dio told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.

The power of metal will heal Dio.

He has way too much heavy metal left in his tiny body, and he must give it to us! :twisted:

Oh no!

"Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.

Thanks to all the friends and fans around the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.

Long Live Rock and Roll, Long Live Ronnie James Dio"

I'm not particularly surprised to hear this.

It's certainly fortunate this was caught in it's EARLY stages.

According to a posting on the BLACK SABBATH fan site Black-Sabbath.com, fans can send get-well cards to legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) through the official fan club address here:

Dio Fan Club
12400 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 624
Studio City, CA
91604

Additionally, if you'd like to send an email to Ronnie, you can do so via [email protected]. After a short time, Black-Sabbath.com webmaster Joe Siegler will print them out and pass them over to Ronnie and his wife/manager Wendy Dio.

Ronnie James Dio was diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer and is currently receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic.

Dio, 67, has performed with ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, and his own band DIO. Other musical projects include the collective fundraiser "Hear 'n Aid". He is widely hailed as one of the most powerful singers in heavy metal, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the "devil's horns" hand gesture in metal culture. He is currently involved with HEAVEN & HELL, a project which also includes Iommi and other former BLACK SABBATH bandmates Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice. Their first studio album, "The Devil You Know", was released on April 28, 2009.

If he truly has "early stage" gastric cancer, surgery might be curative. However, except in Japan where they have aggressive screening programs to detect early gastric cancer with frequent endoscopy, gastric cancer is usually advanced at the time of diagnosis. Advanced gastric cancer does not have a very good prognosis.

Hope he beats it.

I havent heard anything about surgery

Rob Halford said he had started treatment at the Mayo clinic last week

Mike do you think the treatment is radiation or chemo

Do you have any idea why they would not do surgery?
