There were rumors flying over the Net last night that Ronnie had lost his fight with stomach cancer and died last night.

I just found this release from Roadrunner Records that dispells that rumor, but sadly, it also sounds like Ronnie is not doing too well...

************************************
From Roadrunner Records:

Contrary to published reports, legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) **has not** died after a six-month battle with stomach cancer.

After a flood of rumors started circulating via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost his cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

"I am at the hospital and Ronnie has NOT passed away!!!! He is not doing
good, but he is not dead.

"I will let you know if anything changes.

"Thank you for your concern."

That sucks, Ronnie is one of the better guys in Rock & Roll. Hopefully all is well, Heaven & Hell have an upcoming tour throughout Europe. I'm praying for RJD.

I just read on another site, that the Heaven & Hell summer tour is cancelled posted on 4.5.10

I saw Ronnie James Dio a couple times while I was stationed in San Diego during the mid eighties.
Those shows were wild, heavy metal with lazers, smoke and crazy light show with Ronnie fighting a mechanical dragon on stage. It's sad to hear about this condition he is in now, I've heard about his work with the Children of the night - helping the street kids, but due to his lyrical content i pray for him at this stage of his life. not meant to offend - just my opinion. Peace Ronnie!

Neon Nights will always be one of my all time favourite hard rock tunes from the 80's.

Very saddened by this... I was fortunate enough to see Dio many times over the years, he will be greatly missed. RIP, Ronnie.

Enough of this "he will be missed" stuff. I miss him NOW! Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell in heavy rotation this week.

I saw RJD on the first two Dio tours and then again when he reunited with Sabbath in 1992. I had a chance to see Sabbath again in 2007 in NYC during the Beacon run and I wish I had.

Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow
Heaven & Hell
Mob Rules
Holy Diver

Absolute classics. I'm happy for him he was reunited with Geezer & Iommi over the last few years. They surely captured lightning in a bottle together in the early 80s for a couple years -- and it was not predicted at that time which made it that much sweeter.

RIP RJD.

Ditto that Cindy! I am glad I opted to go to that Heaven and Hell Tour with Alice Cooper opening. Ronnie still had those powerful chops! His musical legacy will live on for sure!

We sailed across the air before we learned to fly
We thought that it could never end
We'd glide above the ground before we learned to run, run
Now it seems our world has come undone

Good for you guys. I didn't go thinking I'll catch them next time. Such is life.

RJD will be missed.

The lover of life's not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming
So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder
But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me come the dawn
Come the dawn
