Read last night that Ronnie James Dio finally succumbed to his bout with stomach cancer.

What is this Dead Metal Guy Season?

Cripes, I better watch what I eat, and not get on any airplanes!

Never the big Dio fan, though I appreciated his talent. In later years particularly, he seemed like a decent guy from interviews and commentary. The fact that Heaven & Hell may be the best Sabbath album and it isn’t Ozzy’s, it’s his… might be the greatest testament to the guy.

RIP Ronnie James.

Note: You can include Brett Michaels near brush with death as someone ALMOST succumbing to Dead Metal Guy Season... but you'd have a hard time convincing me to associate 'metal' with him.
