Ronnie James Dio 1942-2010

"One day, in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well,
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell.
One day in the year of the fox,
When the bell began to ring,
It meant the time had come for one to go
To the temple of the king.

There in the middle of the circle he stands,
Searching, seeking.
With just one touch of his trembling hand,
The answer will be found.
Daylight waits while the old man sings,
Heaven help me!
And then like the rush of a thousand wings,
It shines upon the one.
And the day has just begun.

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well,
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell.
One day in the year of the fox,
When the bell began to sing
It meant the time had come for the one to go
To the temple of the king.

There in the middle of the people he stands,
Seeing, feeling.
With just a wave of the strong right hand, he's gone
To the temple of the king.

Far from the circle, at the edge of the world,
He's hoping, wondering.
Thinking back on the stories he's heard of
What he's going to see.
There, in the middle of a circle it lies.
Heaven help me!
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
The answer had been found.

Back with the people in the circle he stands,
Giving, feeling.
With just one touch of a strong right hand, they know
Of the temple and the king..."

Rainbow, Temple of the King


Llego el dia que nadie quiso creer que llegaría. El dia que el metal viste de luto... Hoy... se ha ido para siempre la leyenda del metal Ronnie James Dio...
A los 68 años, su cancer de estómago pudo con él... Corrieron varios rumores sobre su muerte esta mañana, al parecer falsos, pero más tarde su mujer puso en la web oficial este comunicado:
"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."
- Wendy Dio
Una de las mejores voces que jamás escuché y escucharé, de las mejores que ha dado la música... Un ídolo, vamos. Ese que inventó el gesto de los cuernos con la mano. Toda una leyenda... que aunque no viva física, biológicamente... vivirá para siempre en nuestros corazones, y será recordado con cariño cada vez que en nuestro reproductor suene esa voz que a tantos cautivó y lo convirtieron en leyenda...
Hoy es un dia triste. Pero siempre viviras en nuestros corazones.

"You couldn't kill the dragon, but you'll always be alive in our hearts"

Ronnie James Dio, 1942-2010... R.I.P. Nunca te olvidaremos

Imposible de llenar el hueco que a dejado, nuestro "abuelo". Grande Dio para siempre. Me cuesta asimilarlo la verdad, y ya hace más de 24 horas que se a ido a su templo, el templo del Rey. Pero tranquilo porque de aqui unos años lo volveremos a ver a nuestro amigo Ronnie, sea donde sea. Pero que de momento de caña alli donde esté. Always in our hearts, RONNIE.
