I am very saddened by this news and I cried when I heard. Dio shaped what metal is today and we miss him dearly, but he will live on forever through his music. Roch In Peace.

The death of a legend... Damn. Dio influenced a great many players. This is indeed a sad day for metal.

 
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

I saw Dio at the Molson Amphitheater in Toronto with two other legendary acts, Iron Maiden and Motorhead in 2003.  What stands out the most in my head was when they played "Heaven and Hell".

I saw Dio live in Copenhagen a few years ago when they headlined a 'mini festival' with three bands. The other two were Uriah Heep and Asia (the John Payne-version). I actually came there primarily to see Uriah Heep, but while I was slightly disappointed with Heep's performance, Asia, and especially Dio, were very positive surprises. Dio opened their set with Rainbow's Tarot Woman! And they played a great extended version of Sabbath's Heaven And Hell together with some of the best Dio songs. Possibly the best concert I have ever been to (with the possible exception of Jethro Tull this year)!

I was so so lucky to see him with Black Sabbath in 1980; such an awesome entertainer.
 
Thanks Ronnie Clap

I only saw him live once, on the "Last in Line" tour in 1983 at Hammersmith Odeon - but that was an experience to last me a lifetime.

Dio was one of the most talented musicians in metal. His great voice has accompanied me through all my hardest years, always giving me strength to go ahead. 
R.I.P. Ronnie, and may his music be remembered for ever!Rawks

Lots of rock/metal musicians are paying tribute to the man.  Tony Iommi wrote something, but I haven't read it yet.  Blackmore's statement seemed rather brief.

It's amusing reading the comments on blabbermouth as people are pushing for them to put up a memorial banner for Dio, but so far nothing.

Definitely sad news.  Dio is one of my all-time favorite metal vocalists (as I am sure he is many other metal fans).  There was definitely a time during the 80's when he was my favorite.  I can remember talking to a guy who worked at a local record store about him, and the next time I came to the store he had made cassette copies of his albums with Elf.  Totally different from what I was used to from him, but still definitely him.  I only had the chance to see him live once and that was on the Lock Up The Wolves tour when he was touring with Yngwie Malmsteen.  It was definitely a memorable show.  R.I.P. to one of the greatest metalheads of all time.

I can't believe it! I was under the impression that he was making good progress. Such sad news, he was one of the truly great rock singers and still had his voice intact even after all these years.
 
Deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

I saw his live performance back in 2005 but unfortunately I never got to see him with Heaven & Hell. Cry

I just came back from a record shop, and saw a couple Rainbow albums and Heaven and Hell put aside by the owner.  Knowing him well enough, he no doubt is going to raise the prices of these albums given the circumstances. Disapprove

Was never the biggest fan of his music, but nonetheless, as a metalhead since the 90s, it's understandably a huge blow to the metal world. Another amazing talent has left us.
RIP brother, you'll be deeply missed by the heavy metal community

Yeah, it's an unbelievable loss. He was such a great singer. And a great guy, according to those who've met him. I also feel for his family and friends - losing a loved one to cancer is a very difficult thing and it takes a long time to recover from.
