I will say Peter Steele's death affected me more personally, but this is by far the biggest loss the metal community has suffered...ever. Bigger than Dimebag, bigger than Quorthon...this is honestly the biggest hit we've had since metal "began".

Contrary to published reports, legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) **has not** died after a six-month battle with stomach cancer.

After a flood of rumors started spreading via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

"I am at the hospital and Ronnie has NOT passed away!!!! He is not doing
good, but he is not dead.

"I will let you know if anything changes.

"Thank you for your concern."

Not funny. I am so fucking pissed off right now. I mean, obviously I am VERY happy he's not dead - that should go without saying. But whoever started this needs to die now - and a painful and horrible death. What just happened is not something I should ever have to go through twice, nor should anyone. This is fucking ridiculous, and the amount of uproar stirred up for no reason is very annoying.

How do you miscommunicate "someone's dead" without lying? It's a pretty black/white statement to make. Very little ambiguity there.

If I were to be VERY generous, I might put it down to people's pathetic desperation to be the first on the internet to break the news and announcing it before it was confirmed one way or the other.

But I'm not.

From what I understand Dio is in bad shape & was having a rough night & is on life support. As word travels everything gets twisted- then its on Liquid Metal as 4th hand account and its changed. Mario, the DJ, said it came from inside Dio's camp. Another poster on here said it was on his official website for a few minutes too. I can see how can happen.

ravenheart
05-16-2010, 06:01 AM
Sounds like excuses for people being stupid, to me.

Bad shape he may be, but at some point someone has said "he died" with no information. At some stage last night someone turned "he's on life support" to "he died", and that's wrong. No excuses.

I agree with you being realistic. No one should give you shit for it at all. My mom passed from cancer when I was 20. So, I know the downside of this all to well. Unfortunately being realistic doesn't always go with what we really want to have happen. If he is on life support we should be hearing something from Wendy at some point I would think. This is the first i've heard of that rumor at all. After the fiasco that happened last night, i'm not putting much stock in the life support story until we hear something from Wendy or someone who's close to Ronnie can confirm that. I'm sure they wouldn't want the fans to be left in the dark if he truely is close to the end.

This is part of the article on Roadrunner -

Earlier this month, HEAVEN & HELL canceled its summer tour plans in Europe due to Dio's treatment for stomach cancer. The band said in a statement that Dio wasn't "well enough to tour this summer. We hope that everyone understands and want to thank fans and industry colleagues for their continuing support at this time."

as is this

After rumors started circulating via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost his cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 11:35 p.m. PST on Saturday, May 15 / 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

"I will let you know if anything changes.

"Thank you for your concern."


So roll your eyes all you want, but the man is not doing good and unless you want to be smashed by the news of his death again, you better start to accept the fact that he's probably not going to make it through this. Sorry to be debbie downer, but you can't just think everything is all better now just because he's not dead at this very moment. Sadly, we are probably in the final moments of his life and the metal world is set to lose two legends in one year.

Just because he's not well enough to travel around the world playing shows all summer doesn't mean he's going to die. Him not being able to play shows and tour while he has stomach cancer and is going through chemotherapy should have been expected from everybody. Obviously somebody going through that wouldn't be able to. But just because they cancelled those dates doesn't mean that he isn't going to recover. You never know with this type of thing.

And YOU of all people, especially don't know, just as I don't know. Neither of us are his doctors. So don't go around acting like your going in and visiting Dio everyday and seeing his condition based on the fact that they cancelled shows. I'm sure anybody who is going through chemo, no matter how bad there cancer is, would have cancelled those shows.

My opinion had nothing to do with the canceling of shows. That was in response to you posting that he was still touring or was about to tour, when he was not.

And it looks like he did pass, sadly. So, not to be an ass, but who was right? Yeah. Live in fantasy land and believe everything is all better only to be crushed again just a few hours later. Anyone who looked at what was said by Wendy in that text, who wasn't being blinded by false hope, could see that things were really bad. Cancer is a killer. And it's taken another from us.
