      Damn I hate it when they do that, but apparently he's not doing to good either. I'm wondering if this rumor started with one for the hospital employees that are treating him.

      Anyway here's a quote to clear things up.

      Contrary to published reports, legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) **has not** died after a six-month battle with stomach cancer.

      After rumors started circulating via the Internet late Saturday that Dio had lost his cancer fight, BLABBERMOUTH.NET reached out to Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio, who sent back the following message at approximately 11:35 p.m. PST on Saturday, May 15 / 2:35 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 16:

      "I am at the hospital and Ronnie has NOT passed away!!!! He is not doing good, but he is not dead.

      "I will let you know if anything changes.

      "Thank you for your concern.

            The heavy metal singer died early this morning. He was being treated at M.D. Anderson in Houston.

            A rumor circulated Saturday night on Twitter about Dio's death. His wife quickly shot that down: "He is not doing well, but he is not dead."

            His wife released a statement to blabbermouth.net today:

            "Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45 a.m. [on Sunday] 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes 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 spoke just a month ago during an awards ceremony about dealing with chemotherapy and his prognosis:
