The God Of Metal Has Died

I realize this has nothing to do with the vidya but it is noteworthy nonetheless… Ronnie James Dio, best known as the singer for Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath for a time, and his own band Dio, passed away early this morning after a struggle with stomach cancer. Earlier this year he had come forward saying his treatment is going very well and is getting better quite quickly. This, unfortunately, proved to be false.

I don’t have much to say on the topic other than he was the pioneer of all good metal you hear today and the iconic devil horns we still throw up. If that isn’t good enough reason to worship him, I don’t know what is.

I shall be personally giving a moment of silence while Holy Diver is playing in the background. If you are a fan of his, I suggest you do something in a similar manner.

RIP Ronnie
