Farewell Ronnie

Today is a sad day as we mourn the loss of a heavy metal super star.

Ronnie James Dio passed away early this morning after losing his battle with stomach cancer.

Dio's music has been a huge part of our lives...

We were blessed to met him back stage on several occasions and he was always the most gracious host. He wouldn't leave until he had spoken to all the fans and even aksed that security allow people waiting by his bus to come inside one freezing evening in Cleveland.

I saw Dio front Black Sabbath, the Dio band, and Heaven and Hell and was never, ever disappointed.

I will leave you with my favorite Dio song - which is saying a lot considering how many there are...


Rest in peace...
