On May 16th, 2010 RONNIE JAMES DIO passed away and the world of music mourned the loss of the greatest voice of heavy metal. Dio's wife and manager recently posted the following message on the official Dio website:
"Dear Friends and Fans of Ronnie,
I have seen lately a lot of announcements of bands releasing so-called Dio Tribute CDs.
Please do not be fooled by thinking they are doing this for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, the money is going in their pockets and not to the Fund. I find this totally disgraceful and upsetting that they are trying to make money off of Ronnie's death."
