Ronnie James Dio passed away on May 16th, 2010.
Just six months after he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.
Dio is Dio. Nothing more to say.
Let's read, listen and bless him:

Heaven and Hell
Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil
The devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you're a taker
So it's on and on and on, it's heaven and hell
Oh well

The lover of life's not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming
So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell...
