Goodbye Ronnie James Dio

After sifting through all the rumors this morning we were really sad to read this.  Our deepest sympathies to Ronnie’s family and loved ones.

Thank you to Ronnie James Dio for everything he brought to music – those he inspired and those he will continue to inspire for years to come.


Message from Wendy Dio:

Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

– Wendy Dio

  1. Beyond sad. In his mid-60 he was still producing meaningful music – you can’t even say that about The Stones or the ex-Beatle’s solo work…and a sweet, sweet man.
