RiP Ronnie James Dio (1942 – 2010)

Monday, May 17th, 2010 by

This is not Scorpions related per se, but I felt this needed to be said.

I wanted to write a short note to express my condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Ronnie James Dio.

I saw him perform 5 times over the last 8 years, a few times opening up for the Scorpions. He always put on an awesome show. I never got to meet him in person, but I was able to touch “devil horns” with him at the end of a show in Austin, TX. He seemed like a truly nice guy which is more and more rare in today’s world.  He was a true vocal talent.

This week I will be listening to all of my Dio, Black Sabbath (Dio era), and Heaven and Hell CDs as my own personel tribute to RJD. Rock on brother.  You will be missed by many. I believe that you indeed knew how much you were loved, and you were still a humble man to show for it. Rest in peace.
