Ronnie James Dio 1942-2010.

The legendary frontman of Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, Rainbow and of solo work ‘Dio’ has passed away.

The cause of death hasn’t been announced, but he had been battling stomach cancer for some time.

There’s a nice piece on him at The Guardian and Lars Ulrich has also paid tribute, as have Iron Maiden.

Rest in peace Sir Holy Diver.
