Dio has died
« on: May 16, 2010, 06:03:40 pm »
That's right...Ronnie James Dio died this morning, at 7:45 AM. He was 67 years old, and died because of stomach cancer.

I was never really a huge fan of him. But, he gave a lot of stuff to metal and rock music.
You've probably done the devil ears with your fingers, well he invented that.
And everyone knows his song "Holy Diver". It's a classic.

R.I.P. to this amazing legend.

Wow. I can't believe he died. I'm a big fan, and he contributed to metal so much.

I've never listened much to his music, but I know that he gave much to rock and metal.

Ronnie James Dio, R.I.P.   *Does the "devil's horns" gesture* You'll never be forgotten.
I'm confused, oh wait, maybe I'm not.

It was too soon for him, man.  All those updates sounded like he would pull through...

To one of rock and metal's greatest singer and frontman, R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio \m/  \m/

Today the world has become a lot less metal.

Never a huge Dio fan, but the man was talented.  He contributed so much to metal, and music in general.  He will truly be missed.

Hmmm... Just found this:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/general_music_news/ronnie_james_dio_baptist_church_to_picket_public_memorial_service.html

Are you serious? Really? REALLY?

I hate WBC. They're all idiots. Just the the poor guy alone!

Seriously.  You may not like what they guy did or represented, but to picket his funeral!  That's a new low, even for them.

Actually, not really... they picket a number of funerals.
And don't forget, these are the same ones who hold the signs saying 'Thank God For Dead Soldiers'....

That's why they're considered "America's Most Hated Family".  I think it's a really bad idea to protest a funeral filled with metal-heads.

They make me so sick, I don't even want to talk about them anymore.

Picking at a dead mans funeral like that because he was famous but not one of them, because "their religion is the only right"?
Doing so to "remind the people who worshipped him that he was evil"?
Saying a lot of bad things about a dead person like that?

Seriously, they go way too far! Okey, they don't like Dio, fine by me. But to do all that because them don't like him? That's not okay!

No matter how "evil" them claim him to be, they should realize that a lot of people loved him. And therefore, if they don't want to respect Dio, at least show a little respect to those who goes to his funeral because they loved Dio.

I wish they would realize that it is impossible to make every person on this planet to agree with just one single religion, and respect that other people might have different believs.

Though I've only heard like, 4 songs by Dio, it's still upsetting that he died.

Westboro Church HATES him!  haha. :D
