In a statement released to Blabbermouth, Wendy Dio, the wife and manager of legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio said “Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.”
“Long live rock and roll, long live Ronnie James Dio.”
“Thanks to all the friends and fans from all over the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.”
Of Course Ronnie James Dio is the legendary frontman of Elf, Dio, Black Sabbath, and Heaven & Hell. DIO cancelled its European tour last week after Ronnie was taken ill. The band’s lineup for the trek was supposed to include WHITESNAKE/ex-DIO axeman Doug Aldrich due to the fact that the group’s regular guitarist, Craig Goldy, had prior touring commitments with BUDGIE in Australia.
