Edu Falaschi talks about Ronnie James Dio

MS Metal Press Official note :

"Last Sunday morning, May 16th, the Heavy Metal lost one of its main icons: the vocalist Ronnie James Dio (Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, DIO, Heaven & Hell). A thousand fans and musicians around the world, from different generations, were completely touched in that day when one of the most symbolic voices of Metal has stopped to sing due to a complicated health treatment of stomach cancer.

Edu Falaschi: “Last Sunday night, May 16th, I was returning from Manaus after having an unforgettable weekend with my band Angra when received one of the saddest notices in my life: Ronnie Dio has left us.

The world has lost the Best Heavy Metal singer of all time but, above all of that, we lost one of the most brilliant souls that already existed! An artist who loved his fans and did what really liked: to sing Heavy Metal!

Dio was my great master, a person who inspired me as an artist and a human being! My only idol has gone! It will be very hard to get over this sad feeling in my heart!

I would like to send my deepest condolences to Dio’s family. That God be with them!

Anyway, his art, music and especially his unique voice will always be in our hearts!

Dio, we will love you forever! Thank you for having been with us! May 16th the saddest day of Rock and Heavy Metal!”
