    Same here, he might not be dead. I hope it was a joke, anyway.

    Ah, never mind. :erk:

    But people were already reporting the story last night? How the hell did all of this happen? I'm more confused than usual.

    Unfortunately, not a hoax...:( He had been struggling with cancer for the past six months or so. It is a sad day for metal.

    Yesterday it was said that he was not doing well, so people on twitter started saying he was dead. People freaked out, then it came up that he was alive and just in bad shape. This morning he passed, so cruel hoax turned reality.

    He's such an inspiration to the metal genre as a whole. I once made the bold claim that if you don't like Dio, you don't like metal period. I stand by that to this day. The man had charisma, charm and was gracious to all of his adoring fans. Wherever you are and whatever you've found, best of luck and thanks for everything brother!
    Hails!

    I'll have to do the same thing.

    I feel really lucky I caught him live with H&H last year, never guessed that it would be his last tour... I was saying to my friends how he still has more energy up there than most guys half his age...

    RIP \m/

    This is a horrible tragedy. The man will always be a true metal icon, and a music icon in general.

    I haven't listened to Dio in ages. Believe this or not I played a couple of Dio songs yesterday around 1 am. I can't believe he actually passed away hours later...

    Rest in peace Ronnie.

    Today I poured a scotch and raised it to the heavens while blasting "Holy Diver" in full. If gods walk among us, the metal world just lost their representative at Odin's Court.
