    So very sad. Ronnie was a complete gentleman and loved his fans.

    I'm giving "Rainbow Rising" a blasting at the volume that would stun a rhino in his memory.

    Safe journey Mr Dio.

    :(

    I would have posted this yesterday, but the forum was still crapped out...

    Yesterday at 0745 west coast time, the great Ronnie James Dio past away. He had been battling cancer since last year. He was by far one of the best and most influential metal vocalists and performers and will surly be missed. He was also known an possibly one of the friendliest people that you would ever meet. For that he shall surely be missed as well.

    He is famous for the music that he did with:

    Elf
    Rainbow
    Black Sabbath
    Dio
    Heaven Hell

    Rest in Peace Ronnie!

    I'm unfamiliar with his work with Elf and Heaven Hell, but I sure know him from the other three.

    RIP Mr Dio

    "Heaven Hell" album when Dio replaced Ozzy is - in my opinion - the greatest heavy metal album ever. Not a bad song on it which is unusual nowadays.

    RIP Ronnie, we'll miss ya!!!!!

    He will be sorely missed in a community that is currently being flooded with sub-par frontmen....

    I listened to the Holy Diver so many times the writing on the tape cassette wore off... The man was a Legend and a God...

    Rock in Peace Mr. Dio....

    I was more into Metallica, Motley Crue and Megadeth myself, but a mate was a hard core Dio fan... RIP RJD.

    First our soldiers and now this as well...

    WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH To Picket RONNIE JAMES DIO's Public Memorial Service? - May 20, 2010

    According to the official web site of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) — an independent Baptist church and hate group known for its hatred of homosexuals and its protest activities (which include picketing funerals) — WBC is planning on picketing Ronnie James Dio's public memorial service on Sunday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. at The Hall Of Liberty located at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, California. What will presumably one of WBC's standard "peaceful sidewalk demonstrations" is meant to "remind you who worship that old Serpent, Satan, that your time is very short," according to a post on the "Upcoming Picket Schedule" page of the web site. The post continues, "You know 67 year old, Satan-worshiping (or at least one of their enablers) Ronnie James Dio (of showing his devil horns to the world each time he goes in public) BLACK SABBATH fame is dead, right? We'll be there! Just because the chances of any of God's elect being amongst this group of heavy metal sycophants is slim to none does not mean they should not get some good words."

    The post goes on to say, "Yes, it is true that Ozzy Osbourne did 'accidentally' bite off the head of a bat, but THAT is the least of their sins (little nasties!), they currently do not do that, but they throw raw meat to the audience and encourage violence of EVERY FORM!"

    The WBC web site then proceeds to list "admitted sins of this now dead and in hell pervert: 1) He hates his neighbor(s) starting with Ozzy Osbourne, and continuing down to his pornography star niece Gen Padova! 2) He hates God. Pay especial attention to the fact that he changed his original sir name from Padova to Dio, which means God in Italian. 3) Ronnie the simpleton enabled, and encouraged Sorceries: everything he was about including the little finger horn thing (he got this from his mother which is an incantation to ward off the 'evil eye') to the drugs, bloody raw meat and his fellowship with those pentagon necklace wearing freakish band members."

    The post concludes: "Yes, Ronnie James Padova (NOT DIO) is currently residing in hell. When all those who worship him and his false gods meet him in hell it will be just like this: Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Praise God all ye, His people. The Great Day of the Lord draws nigh. AMEN!"

    According to CNN.com, the members of the Topeka, Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church filed a legal brief with the high court last year indicating that they "believe it is their duty to protest and picket at certain events, including funerals, to promote their religious message: 'That God's promise of love and heaven for those who obey him in this life is counterbalanced by God's wrath and hell for those who do not obey him.'"

    The congregation is made up mostly of pastor Fred Phelps and his family. The pastor has 13 children, and at least 54 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. He described himself as an "old-time" gospel preacher in a CNN interview in 2006, saying, "You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God."

    For more information on the Westboro Baptist Church, read this entire CNN.com article from June 2009.
