R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio 1942 - 2010
It's been just over a fortnight since the passing of Ronnie James Dio and it's significance can really be seen on the rock and metal world. Without indulging too much in melodramatic pretension, Dio's death completely marks the end of an era. He truly was the voice of heavy metal in it's primacy and by all accounts, one of the humblest and most down to earth rock stars in existence. His incredible voice and commanding stage presence will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, Dio.
