Nice!

Never been a heavy metal fan, but I liked that he actually sang instead of only screamed like so many others. So I actually liked some of his music.

And he is immortalized in the Tenacious D movie (take that for what you will).

First Peter, now Ronnie.  :'(

Dio was the man who, along with the four mad men of Birmingham, that tuned me into the powerful mysticism that is Heavy Metal. You will be sorely missed
