I heard on the radio today in school that Ronnie James Dio is in the hospital and the bands European tour has been cancelled. Does anyone have more info???

EDIT: Found this

link: http://www.black-sabbath.com/news/2009/11/ronnie_james_dio_in_hospital.html

Ronnie James Dio in hospital
This text comes from the RJD website..

"The European tour has been cancelled after Ronnie was taken ill. "Ronnie has been hospitalized and we are waiting for further news," explains Ronnie's wife/manager, Wendy Dio.

No further information is available at this time, but we wish Ronnie a speedy and complete recovery."

I got an email from Wendy saying they were at the hospital for tests, but they did not elaborate as to WHY he was at the hospital. Ronnie's no spring chicken anymore, he's 67 (as far as I know), and if it's something really bad that required him to cancel a tour to deal with - it can't be good. Ronnie never cancels anything.

If I get an update (like WHY), I'll post it, but given Ronnie keeps his personal life close to the vest, I'd be surprised if we get a real WHY. Either way, I say to keep them in your prayers.

well, just to inform you,

Ronnie James Dio is a heavy metal singer, he sung in bands like Elf, Rainbow, DIO, and also in Black Sabbath, and he also sung the song 'love is all' by Roger Glover, and at the moment he was touring with his band Heaven and Hell, featuring previous members from Black Sabbath

He also kinda popularized the devil horn - hand gesture

Great singer, too bad he is in hospital

Pretty fucking closed-minded that you reject any possibility of of liking him before you've even heard anything he's done.

Would you care if I told you the same story but about some random country musician? Or a rap artist? No, you wouldn't. Call me close-minded all you want, I know what I care about.

Oh and my original point was TS shoulda pointed it out in the first post for those of us who didn't know who he was.

I don't reject any possibility of enjoying music from different genres without having heard them, so maybe you should stop making assumptions altogether?

It seems like Veniceking wants the world to revolve around him a bit more. You dont know who Dio is, yet you still have the audacity to assume that no one cares about him? I dont like his music myself, but you dont see me barging into threads and ruining a discussion just because I assume no one cares about him. Get a life and go troll some other forum.

Seriously though, I hope he gets better soon.
He deserves to keep on rockin'.

So you have no preferences? Most people have genres they dislike you know, if you are genuinely one of the few who don't that's fine but you're probably just saying that to try and correct one of my points.

I didn't assume no one cares about him, I assumed alot of people wouldn't know who he was and I assumed I wouldn't care about this. You did "barge" into this thread but only to join the bunch of fans trying to insult me.

Either way, I don't care what a bunch of metalheads think of me, I just thought this thread should atleast have information on the person it was about Great job at getting angry over nothing guys...
