  1. Thank you Ronnie for GREAT songs such as Temple of the king, Man on the silver mountain,Holy Diver,Dont talk to srangers,Lost children of the sea, neon lights,Heaven and Hell and so many more that millions will continue to enjoy and introduce them to their children that will pass them on to thier children and so you will live forever somewhere between Heaven and Hell.

  2. Iwas lucky to hear that great voice live three times in my life.C.N.E.stadium in Toronto with Sabbath in 81 i was15.Then again on Holy Diver at Massey Hall again in T.O. Then finally in my home town London On.Canada.touring withTony and Geezer as Heaven and Hell.Thanks Ronnie R.I.P.

  3. It’s hard to think of many people who had a bigger influence on my life than Ronnie, since Live Evil and Heaven & Hell were the first LPs I ever played, and although I got to see him with Heaven & Hell, I’m gutted that I will never see him live again. As time rolls on, the significance of his contribution to the music of the 20th century will only become clearer and more widely appreciated. This is a genuinely sad day for all of us.

    Rest In Peace, Ronnie

  4. Truely one of the all time greatest lead singers I am so glad that I got to see him live with Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven & Hell he will surely be missed by all who rock. Devil horns to you your legendary vocals will live on forever like a Rainbow Rising it is so sad you had to Die Young.

    R.I.P.

  5. So sorry to hear this. I have loved Black Sabbath and Ronnie Dio’s music all my adult life and it’s hard to think I will never see him on stage again. Dio was a true hero to me and I will miss him.

  6. I would like to add that I have seen Dio live many times and he never ever gave less than a brilliant show. A true professional, a great entertainer and an enormous talent. A sad loss to rock music.

  7. I was blown away by Ronnie’s voice when I first heard it 30 years ago but I was more blown away by his personality.He seemed like a warm,caring,smart and can still rock your ass off guy.He was someone I liked to hear speak as much as sing and I will miss him dearly.
