Good night, sweet prince

Heavy metal veteran Ronnie James Dio dies, aged 67 | Reuters:
Ronnie James Dio, the pint-sized heavy metal singer who replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath, died on Sunday, five months after being diagnosed with stomach cancer, his wife said. He was 67.

Well, damn. "Heaven and Hell" is my favorite Black Sabbath album, and I liked Dio's solo work well enough. I'll miss him. (via the Judas Priest feed on Facebook)

Dio was a solid new front man for Sabbath. I've a particular fondness for their early work, but Dio's work with them was good.
