For those who may not know, he was in Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Heaven and Hell. Also, of course, his namesake band Dio. I can't believe he was 67 years old!

Peter Steele and now Dio; not a great year for Heavy Metal.

Holy Diver ! A true legend indeed! R.I.P.


Sounds like from Wendy's message he had been ill for a while.

He had battled stomach cancer for about a year now.

I know, that shocked the hell out of me also.

The world of metal has lost a truly great one.

(So who now will pass the torch to Tenacious D ?)
