Ronnie James Dio passes

I've just learned that heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio passed away today at age 67. Terrible news. Back in March I had written a post about Dio's battle with stomach cancer, one which he appeared to be winning.

First Frank Frazetta, now this. What a terrible week. Another light has gone out of the world.

I will post something later this week.

I hear ya. I wasn't expecting Frank to go, but DIO REALLY threw me for a loop.

Heff/Scott: Thanks for stopping by. It has been a bad week for old heroes and artists that we grew up with.

Scott, nice job with your Dio tribute over at Blog of the Beast, by the way. I have a comment or two I need to leave.

Thanks. Feel free to comment anytime...and good job on your Frazetta tributes.
