Closed.

I really think that Dio wasn't in the casket. During the ceremony, people kept saying that the real funeral was the day before. Wouldn't that mean that he was buried that day?

That's intresting. It could've been someone just starting a rumor though because the casket was closed. There's no reason to believe that he wasn't in there. It doesn't make much sense to have this whole big send off with the casket on stage if he was already buried. I think they would of told everyone and not had it on the stage if that were the case.

Yeah it was an empty casket, I think.

I figured the casket was empty too. That's why I just left after the ceremony was over and missed walking up to the casket. I was burnt out after waiting over 3 hours outside in the sun and 4 hours inside with no food or drink.

No, the people that spoke during the ceremony said it themselves that the actual funeral was the day before.

If I had known there would be musical performances I would have gone. I ended up going to a gig at Rhino Records. Damn.

How was it possible not to know that? They didn't wait two weeks to do it just so they could do something ordinary for him.

To put the debate to bed about weather Ronnie was really in the casket or not at this memorial. It's been reported on the Black Sabbath message board that he was laid to rest yesterday afternoon. Vinny, Geezer, Craig Goldy, Steve Mignardi, Scott Warren and Simon Wright were the paulbearers. So i'm guessing for those who passed by the casket at his memorial, yes Ronnie was in there when you walked by.

I got an email today from the Eddie Trunk website where Eddie mentions the private funeral was Saturday.

Quote:
Just back from LA, the Dio memorial and funeral. Friday was the private viewing, Saturday was the private funeral and Sunday the public memorial I had the honor to host. So many amazing performances and speeches, all in tribute to the great Ronnie James Dio. It was great to see and connect with so many again, but obviously we all wish it was under better circumstances. Wendy Dio and her team did everything so classy and respectful, fitting for a man like Ronnie. So many friends and family gathered at the various events over the weekend. Spent time with Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, Oni Logan, Rudy Sarzo, Doug Aldrich, Craig Goldy, Frankie Banali, Claude Schnell, Scott Warren, Vinny Appice, Glenn Hughes, Simon Wright, Rob Halford, Joey Belladonna and so many others. The public event Sunday was a tremendous honor to host. Thousands of fans, friends and family showed up at Forest Lawn for a final goodbye to Ronnie...

EDIT: Apparently, he was buried Tuesday 6/1. I have an email in to ET to find out what he was talking about.
