Ronnie James Dio Dead at 67

Ronnie James Dio - best-known as the vocalist in bands Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell, Rainbow, and Dio - died Sunday, according to a statement on his official website from wife 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.
Dio had been battling what appeared to be a worsening stomach cancer, recently canceling a summer tour with Heaven and Hell.

We'll never forget the amazing performance Dio gave when we saw him back in August at Madison Square Garden's WaMu Theatre. Our sincerest condolences to his friends, family and fans.
