From RonnieJamesDio.com:

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.

– Wendy Dio

From wikipedia:

Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal vocalist and songwriter. He performed with ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, and his own band DIO. Other musical projects include the collective fundraiser Hear ‘n Aid.

He was widely hailed as one of the most powerful singers in heavy metal, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the “devil’s horns” hand gesture in metal culture.

He was collaborating on a project with former Black Sabbath bandmates Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice, under the moniker Heaven & Hell, whose first and only studio album, The Devil You Know, was released on April 28, 2009.

He died of stomach cancer aged 67.

Definitely one of the coolest voices ever.

Ozzy talks a few details aout OzzFest 2010 in the clip below. They’re are aiming for a traveling fest this year as opposed to 2008’s single destination festival in Dallas.

Also, the widely panned new album title ‘SOUL SUCKA’ has led Ozzy to pull the plug on the title with a new title TBA soon. Said OO:

“When we put that on the Internet none of my fan base liked the title. They were like, ‘I can’t imagine me walking around the fucking house with the words ‘Soul Sucka’ on my T-shirt.’ So I was like, ‘Fuck it. I’ve got to come up with something else!’ ”

Still a couple of dates on Ozzy’s ‘I AM OZZY’ book-signing tour:

2.02.09 – 7:00 p.m. – Book Soup @ 8818 Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood, CA
2.03.09 – 7:00 p.m. – Barnes And Noble @ 7881 Edinger Ave in Huntington Beach, CA

“It is with great regret that I had to resort to legal action against my long-term partner Tony Iommi, but after three years of trying to resolve this issue amicably, I feel I have no other recourse.

I don’t have the right to speak for Geezer and Bill, but I feel that morally and ethically the trademark should be owned by the four of us equally. I hope that by me taking this first step that it will ultimately end up that way.
