    Ronnie James Dio diagnosed with stomach cancer

    BLABBERMOUTH.NET - RONNIE JAMES DIO Diagnosed With Stomach Cancer

    Wendy Dio, the wife and manager of legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW), has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

    "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."

    I hope he makes a speedy and full recovery.
    The only proof he needed for the existance of God was music.

    Without music, life would be a mistake.

    That sucks big time, but here's to a full and speedy recovery. I wouldn't be surprised if he does just fine.

    Darren is wise!

    It says "early stages" so hopefully his prognosis is very good.
    We're all musicians, still searching for our roots.

    Ronnie will just throw the horns at it, canceling it forever.
