RIP DIO, Really

Well, Followers, it's been confirmed by more than internet metal mutants that The Man On The Silver Mountain, Ronnie James Dio, has passed away at the tender age of 67 after a bout with stomach cancer. I would personally like to thank fate, nature, religion and Sharon Osbourne for stranding us with a Black Sabbath that will forever be fronted by a gibberish spewing dingleberry with the mental capacity of a used condom. Here's an all too appropriate ode for the little man with the big voice and the power to wield it. He will surely be missed here at TBSS and his body of work fully cherished. LOOK OUT!

Let's win this one for DIO, men.



  1. Sad to hear this. Ronnie James had a set of lungs, thats for damn sure. I didnt realize he was that old and didnt know how far back he went (he was in a doo-wop group in the late 50's).

  2. 1958. Ronnie & The Redcaps baby!
