Black Sabbath lead singer Ronnie James Dio dies
#1
According to a statement on his official website, heavy metal god Ronnie James Dio — who fronted Black Sabbath after Ozzy Osbourne’s
departure in 1979, then went on to found his own eponymous band — has died at the (reported) age of 67.

Dio was battling stomach cancer diagnosed last fall, and cancelled this summer’s tour with his current band, Heaven & Hell, due to his deteriorating health.

Message from Wendy Dio

Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.



Dio's stomach cancer diagnosis became public in late 2009. Earlier this year, the artist announced that a planned European tour with his band Heaven & Hell would have to be canceled due to his declining health. Dio, however, was able to appear in Los Angeles at an early April metal event sponsored by hard rock magazine Revolver, where he spoke of the challenges of dealing with chemotherapy.

"I never realized what a difficult thing it was to go through," he said in a video interview with Artisan News. "It's a real cumulative effect -- the more you have, the more it piles up on top and it takes longer and longer to get over it. I find it very difficult to eat. I don't like to eat, anyway, so I guess that's OK. But I know I have to. But this makes it very, very hard. But if you're determined to beat it, then you have to go with what you believe is going to beat it for you."

Dio was born July 10, 1949, according to the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll, yet there has long been dispute about his age. Fans have long put Dio's true birth date as the summer of 1942, and numerous reports of Dio's death have cited his age as 67.

Dio replaced Ozzy Osbourne as the lead singer of Black Sabbath, who left the band in 1979 after increasingly reckless behavior. Dio's first album with the group, "Heaven & Hell," has been certified platinum by industry trade body the RIAA, putting its total shipments at more than 1 million copies. Soon after the release of 1981's "Mob Rules," Dio left Black Sabbath to start his own group, Dio.

Dio continued to record with his namesake group into this decade, and more recently had formed Heaven & Hell. The latter was essentially a reunion of the Obsourne-less Black Sabbath, and released the studio effort "The Devil You Know" in 2009. The Rhino album entered the U.S. pop chart at No. 8 after selling 30,000 copies in its first week.

Desde que comecei propriamente a "gostar de música" (isto é, interessar-me, conhecer, distinguir, apreciar, etc., em vez de a tratar como ambiente de fundo), lá para o início dos anos 90, que este tipo foi sempre parte da minha vida, tanto como vocalista como como "songwriter". Pensei que este ano ia realizar o meu sonho de ver a formação do "Dehumanizer" ao vivo, mas não deu... e nunca vai dar.

É também um pouco assustador como um cancro pode matar assim uma pessoa em menos de um ano... afinal, ele fez concertos em 2009, e supostamente estava a melhorar o suficiente para eles virem cá (pela primeira vez) em Julho.

Pelo que diz o artigo, ainda o mês passado tinha aparecido em público. Com a idade que tinha seria muito difícil recuperar o suficiente para poder voltar a fazer concertos, mas mesmo assim não esperava que fosse tão depressa.

“If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up?”

“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.”

“Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.”

“Have the courage to live. Anyone can die.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

"A man who won't die for something is not fit to live. "

"I shall not die of a cold. I shall die of having lived. "

“I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.”

"The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. "

"The idea is to die young as late as possible. "

"While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die. "

"You can kill a man but you can't kill an idea. "

Para muitos Dio representa os varios conceitos que aqui referi... ele viveu, foi diferente, viveu muito e bem. A ideia e a musica ficaram.

Curiosamente, eles (Dio e JB/KG) conheceram-se depois do álbum que incluiu essa música (o primeiro dos Tenacious D), e ficaram bons amigos, o que resultou posteriormente nisto:

Mesmo velhote o Dio ainda cantava com pujança... já o Jack Black é que continuo a achar um bocado irritante.

Black Sabbath, estes senhores na viragem dos anos 60 para os 70 construiram uma enorme carreira ajundando a inventar o heavy-metal em apenas 5 albuns que agora têm estatuto de clássicos. Penso que aqui o Ozzy era muito melhor que a solo, o Tommy Iomi, mesmo tocando guitarra com proteses de plastico e cabedal em dois dedos da mão direita e sendo canhoto tocava que se fartava.

Os albuns base com a formação base (e para mim os melhores) podem ser caracterizados da seguinte maneira:

1-Black Sabbath: Quarenta minutos de rock pesado e apocaliptico.Chegou ao numero 8 dp Top em Inglaterra e ao numero 23 no top 200 dos EUA.

2-Paranoid:A melhor colecção de riffs dos Sabbath ( talvez de sempre) com "War Pigs"," Luke's Wall", "Paranoid,"Iron Man" e outros.Chegou ao numero 1 em Inglaterra e vendeu mais de 4 milhões de discos

3-Master of Reality:Considerado um dos 50 albuns mais pesados de sempre.Foi numero 5 em Inglaterra

4-Vol.4: O album da coca e mais nada xD. Disco de ouro nos dois lados do Atlântico.

5-Sabbath,Bloody Sabbath: O 1º disco que a critica apreciou.Neste album os ingleses incorporam na sua musica sintizadores, secções de cordas e outras inovações progressivas.O resultado não podia ter sido melhor: pela quinta vez consecutiva mais de 1 milhão de discos e lançaram a semente da New Wave of British Heavy Metal.


Espero que apreciem a minha review dos 5 albuns , pais do heavy-metal.
Acho que já deu para ver que gosto bastante deles.

Nota: O 1º nome da banda era para ser Earth

P.S- A cover que os Ugly Kid Joe fizeram da "N.I.B" tá linda, aconselho a ouvirem.

Acho que está uma boa review, mas o especialista em Black Sabbath por estas bandas não sou eu. Tongue
