    Ronnie James Dio, the little man with the huge voice, passed away on Sunday after a long battle with stomach cancer. The 67-year-old Dio, known for his namesake band, his hit "Holy Diver" and for fronting Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell, was beloved by metal fans the world over. His death was confirmed by his widow, Wendy. In a statement, she said, "Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know that he loved you all and his music will live on forever."

    How bummed out does this news make you? I for one am bummed super hardcore. RIP, RJD.
