I opened Seano's blog and was shocked to see than Ronnie had lost his battle with cancer. I thought he was getting better. I cried.
My heart goes out to his wife, Wendy, his family, friends and fans.
Here is a Facebook page where you can leave your condolences.
Here's a memory my sister has of Ronnie:
"Back in August 1983 he was opening for Aerosmith and showed up at Tower Records in El Toro to sign albums. It was more like a gathering of fans, not really a "wait in line" kinda thing. Ronnie was very sweet and gentle, not at all like the persona he has on stage. He was very short even with his platform shoes. I still have the album he signed. I've seen him in concert three times, once with Black Sabbath, once with Rainbow and once with Dio."
Thank you, Ronnie, for the great music and your passion for hard rock and roll. You will be remembered and missed.
