Ronnie James Dio
Heavy Metal Vocalist
July 10, 1942-May 16, 2010
Ronnie James Dio.
Doing his iconic "Devil Horns" gesture.
Although the voice and music of Ronnie James Dio was not my cup of tea, he was an acknowledged master vocalist of the Metal genre. He had a voice that could break glass and was still banging it out on the road up until the time he got sick about six months ago. By all accounts he was a down to earth and decent guy.
So for his innovation, style, and longevity in the world's most unstable business we at The Funeral Guy note his passing and extend our condolences to his wife, family, friends and his millions of fans.
Cause of death was stomach cancer.
