R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio 1942 – 2010

Ronnie James Dio lost his battle with cancer this morning.

I first heard when Laurie sent me a text message. We were just talking about him yesterday when we had to explain “the goat” to my mom after Claudia kept doing this in pictures.


That sucks. He was a legend. My thoughts are with his family and his fans.

Who cried for the children? He did.

And he never took himself too seriously.

Rest in Peace Ronnie James.

  1. I don’t know why this makes me so sad! He was such a nut, but I am truly sad for him and his family

  2. So sad…but more importantly,
    If Jack Black needs a bosom to grieve on, I’m right here.

  3. I know it has been explained to me before because Ritch has been “Throwing the Goat” around since he was a teenager, but I had forgotten where it came from. Most of the time I only use one finger. I guess because Dio was older than me he had to use more fingers.

  4. I still think it’s funny that we had to explain the goat to YOUR MOM and that she just assumed you were making the sign of the devil all of these years. It’s good to be accepted for who we are.

  5. Maybe she just thought I had a tic.

  6. Milo Hussy says:

    This man is a legend.
