R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio (July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010)

I've been a fan for ages, and even at 67 years old he carried one of the greatest voices in rock around the globe. He was always the classiest guy and never let himself succumb to the "rock-star lifestyle" that ended or compromised careers and a public image. My friend Damon and I have had many conversations about him, his career, and most recently his chemo treatments while assuming that things were going well. He will be missed.

Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan, but I only heard good things about him.

What was funny is that I didn't think I was that big of a Dio fan, and then I realize I have three of his CD's on my iPod ("Heaven and Hell" with Sabbath, Rainbow Rising and a greatest hits compilation of his own band). This isn't counting all the cassette tapes from the eighties and some of the later CDs. I guess I liked him more than I realized.
