Get Well Soon, Ronnie James Dio


Sadly, Ronnie was diagnosed with stomach cancer.  Fortunately he is in the early stages.  Lets hope and pray for a full recovery.  

I saw this on "Classic Rock" blog this morning:

gbarton / News / 20/11/2009 16:55pm

Ronnie James Dio’s wife and manager, Wendy, has thanked fans for their messages of support following the veteran singer’s recent hospitalisation.
A message on Dio’s official website reads:
‘Wendy Dio would like to thank all of our friends and fans that have sent emails, cards, and blogs on Blabbermouth and let you know that she has passed them all on to Ronnie.
‘Wendy always reads Blabbermouth and gives Ronnie all the kind words the fans send, any mean ones she throws in the trash, which is where they belong.’
There’s still no word on Ronnie’s condition, and no details about what exactly caused his hospitalisation.
There is speculation that the 67-year-old frontman is suffering from a heart condition but we must stress this has not been confirmed by anyone in the Dio camp.

Man, that's bad news.

I have seen Ronald Padavona twice. Once with his band Dio and two years ago with Tony, Geezer and Vinnie on the Heaven and Hell tour. He has a giant voice (which belies his physical stature) and was still in brilliant vocal form. I hope that he makes a full recovery. I'll have to listen to Rainbow's Rising album, Holy Diver (bought it the day it came out) and maybe Live Evil tonight.

Heard a Dio track recently and realised what a good vocalist he really is.

Oh no, I hadn't heard about this yet. :( I hope he get's well soon. He's an amazing artist! I was listening to Dio yesterday while I was cleaning the house...his music is always a pick me up.
