MetalInsider.net and Sirius XMs Liquid Metal have both recently confirmed that metal singer Ronnie James Dio died earlier this evening.

I've just found this. It isn't very informative, but its taken about 12 hours after the ones you posted.

I'm unsure if he is dead or if these sources are just misinformed. I guess we'll see tomorrow.

Definitely a big loss. I thought for sure he'd make it through. I'm glad I got the chance to see him live. RIP :sad:
