Man assaulted over poor Dio karaoke performance

The Smoking Gun reports Kyle Drinkwine, 24, Wisconsin, assaulted singer James Mischler, 28, and Cyrus Kozub,29, allegedly over an unsatisfactory karaoke version of Dio's "Holy Diver."

Mischler felt his signing was not a joke, stating, "I genuinely love Ronnie James Dio."

Mischler told The Smoking Gun that the two came to blows after he made the comment, "he should find a better vending machine for his jewelry," which referred to Drinkwine's "gaudy" crucifix. Mischler made the comment as a comeback to Drinkwine and his friends' heckling.

Police arrested Drinkwine after a short foot chase. He registered .169 alcohol level, more than twice the state limit. Drinkwine was booked into the Pierce County Jail on battery and disorderly conduct counts. Drinkwine is pictured above in a mug shot taken on November 7th in St. Croix Co., where he was charged with violating probation in a previous case.

Yesterday (May 16 , 2010) , we have all heard the sad news about Ronnie James Dio , who died of a stomach cancer . His wife , Wendy Dio , has released the following statement :

"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. "

Here are a few statements from bands and artists :

Twisted Sister : "Ronnie not only was a giant in the worldwide metal scene, but he was also one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.
Ronnie was one of the most supportive and gracious members of the music community. "

Nicola Van Dyk / Redemption : "I lost a musical hero today, and the news has hit me harder than I thought it would.
The world of heavy metal has lost its voice."

Shawn Drover / Megadeth : "I am at an absolute loss right now upon hearing that Ronnie has passed away .
I swear to you he is one of the nicest human beings I have ever met .
If you are lucky enough in your lifetime to actually meet one of your idols (let alone tour with them) and they turn out to be even nicer than you could have envisioned, that is something you would truly treasure. Lucky for me, I will cherish those memories forever."

Ralph Santolla / Obituary : "There's not a person in metal today that doesn't owe something to Ronnie James Dio.
He seemed to treat everyone he encountered as an equal, but few are his equals.
Rest in peace, and God bless you."

Judas Priest : "Ronnie was a wonderful man and will be sorely missed ."

Kiss : "We mourn the tragic passing of the great Ronnie James Dio. In addition to his powerhouse vocal ability, Ronnie was a true gentleman who always emanated great warmth and friendship to us and everyone around him. We will miss him."

Robb Flynn / Machine Head : "He was a powerhouse singer. Incredible tone, and grit. His voice onstage was FUCKING LOUD!! Shockingly loud!! We were lucky enough to watch from side stage almost nightly, and all of us were blown away by how loud his voice was. [...]
Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you've done for music, Ronnie."

Into Eternity : "I'm still taking in the fact that we have lost yet ANOTHER timeless metal musician. R.I.P., Ronnie James Dio. A life that was lived to the fullest and also influenced thousands and thousands of musicians .
"Cancer is a battle for many people these days; the world is losing many talented,loving and wonderful people. Do what you can to prevent and/or help find a cure.
Stay healthy, my friends!"

Wolf: "We are very sad this day. We have lost THE greatest, most powerful and biggest voice in hard rock and metal. For WOLF, Ronnie James Dio, was/is a great inspiration and we will always keep his voice alive listening to his music. We all met him on several occations and he was always very nice and took the time to chat about music and the world.
You will be sadly missed. May your music live on and on forever."

Joe Di Taranto / Warmachine : "I am devasted to learn that Ronnie James Dio has passed.
The world has lost a true legend and pioneer.
I could not believe it. Ronnie James Dio, the legend, my idol and one of my biggest childhood inspirations, knew who I was .
I will always be greatful to Ronnie for his time, his hugs and, of course, his amazing music.
You will be sorely missed, Ronnie...
Long live the King of Rock N Roll!"

Iron Maiden: "It is with huge sadness we hear that Ronnie has lost his battle against stomach cancer, and our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Wendy and family at this terrible time.
Ronnie was not only an incredibly gifted singer but also a wonderfully warm, intelligent and generous person and this shone through both on and off stage leaving a positive mark on everyone he came into contact with. The world has lost an irreplaceable talent and, first and foremost, one of the finest human beings you could ever wish to meet."

R.I.P , Ronnie James Dio .

Ronnie James Dio sends a message to his fans

published on December 20, 2009 by Zandra
The famous Heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio was a few weeks ago diagnosed with a stomach cancer . He wanted to thank his fans for their support , writing these words :

"I'd like to take the time to thank everyone for the most wonderful gift I have ever received - your good wishes, your prayers, your support, your tears and laughter, your anger, your rejoicing, and most of all the unwavering love you have bestowed upon me. I guess I've always felt that we were one person and that you've allowed me to be our spokesman, but until this time of my greatest peril, the truth was perhaps slightly hidden. It is hidden no more. Together we shall face the foe and live on to climb higher mountains and explore greater magic. Together we cannot fail.

"Please accept my never-ending love and dedication to you all.

"So it is written, and so it shall be.

"Magic, from Ronnie James Dio."
