Ronnie James Dio

On Sunday 16 May, 2010, Ronnie James Dio passed away. Having grown up listening to heavy metal bands from the 70's and 80's, I just can't believe the man is gone. Rainbow -- one of the bands I listened to extensively -- was the main reason why I started playing drums in the 80's. Thank you for the music, Ronnie, and rest in peace!
