I am so heartbroken over Ronnie's death.
I guess I always thought of him as immortal
He was the nicest guy I have ever met and I will miss him so much.
Long live Rock and Roll and Ronnie's memory
I love you Ronnie. RIP

Still in shock.

One of the coolest guys in the business, and a true legend in his own right.

RIP Ronnie, you will be sorely missed...

I´ll treasure this moment we shared with you forever, one of the coolest moments with one of my heroes.

It happened so quickly, in my mind, it wasn't long ago that we learned about his fight for cancer... he's gone already, he was/is my favorite metal singer of all times. His voice ruled even as he grew older, even though it wasn't as high pitched as it used to be, it was still just as fierce, loud, in perfect tune.

I'm moving to France next year for my studies, where all kinds of metal bands I love perform whereas they never perform where I am now. Dio was on my "to see" list along with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kiss, AC/DC and everyone else... I'm very sad I'll never get to see him, and that I got so close to see him.

I've only heard nice things being said about him, I'm sure he was a great guy, and I am really sad to hear one of the brightest stars of classic heavy metal is gone.

Classic heavy metal is dying, piece by piece, nobody is continuing the tradition. New metal is taking over, even Ozzy has changed. It seems the Holy Diver, Shout At The Devil, Van Halen I, Screaming For Vengence sounds will die with the bands that created them.

Farewell Dio.
We've never met, but I'll sure as hell miss you.

Hail Dio.

Here's a very nicely written career synopsis / eulogy for Dio:

http://www.popmatters.com/pm/feature/12 ... -the-black

It really underscores artist appreciation. Whoever wrote that, cared. It comes through the writing so poignantly.

What defines a musical hero?

People who don't even like metal are sad. Dio crossed genre lines and boundaries. He is timeless and ageless now - a musical legacy for all of us to cherish.

It's amazing how the voice and charisma of this man have influenced and inspired me through all these years.

He will be sadly missed but at the same time his music will never get out from my head and it will still provide me the thrill of the moment just like when I lost my voice while singing "Falling off the edge of the world" right in my own town or when the first time I heard that Live at Munich 1977 Rainbow concert on my old VHS player...

RIP Ronnie.

"He hates God. Pay especial attention to the fact that he changed his original sir name from Padova to Dio, which means God in Italian"

Now THAT makes sense... :roll:
