Message from Wendy Dio :
Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

The heavy metal singer, Ronnie James Dio, died today at the age of 67. He had been suffering from stomach cancer.

Dio was best known for fronting Black Sabbath after the departure of Ozzy Osbourne, but was also involved in the bands Elf, Rainbow, Heaven & Hell and Dio during a career stretching over 53 years.

His current band, Heaven & Hell, which features other former members of Black Sabbath, had announced earlier this year that they were pulling out of their summer commitments due to the singer's ill health.

His wife and manager, Wendy, paid tribute, saying: "We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever." (from http://www.guardian.co.uk/)
