DIO died

Bad news to end the weekend.
Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager. He was 67..

Dio revealed last summer that he was suffering from stomach cancer shortly after wrapping up a tour in Atlantic City, N.J. with the latest incarnation of Black Sabbath, under the name Heaven And Hell.
Thanks for the music, Ronnie. So many of us Metal Heads will be in mourning. Here's your devil horn sign coming right back at ya.

Knew who he was, but didn't know his name -- does that make sense?

Didn't realize he had passed. That's a shame.

Makes sense. Sort of.
