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.

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 ?)

It is interesting to try to figure out when the actual video stopped being the criteria, rather than whomever MTV wants to "push" at the moment (for lack of a better term).
