Metal rock god James Ronnie Dio dies

The Sydney Morning herald reports:

Ronnie James Dio, the metal god who replaced OzzyOsbourne in Black Sabbath and later piloted the bands Heaven & Hell and Dio, has died aged 67, his wife and manager say.

Dio announced last (northern) autumn he was suffering from stomach cancer. He was being treated at a Houston hospital, according to his website.

“My heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am,” said a statement by Wendy Dio posted on Sunday on the site and confirmed by publicist Maureen O’Connor.

Wendy Dio said friends and family were able to say their goodbyes to her husband, and asked for privacy. She concluded: “Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.”


My Comments: You may observe in this picture (taken from this man flashing the “Il Cornutu” signal of allegiance to the devil. Its the same sign that many world leaders like George W. Bush and others have flashed around over recent history. They all serve the same devil, but in different ways and in different guises.


I never listened to Dio’s music but I saw some of his album covers which totally glorified the devil and manifested a total contempt for our God and His servants on earth.

Be assured: God is not mocked. Once upon a time this man was a young man able to command the adulation of thousands and sell lots of records, make lots of money and enjoy what this world offers. Now where is his eternal soul? Would he really be enjoying power in Satan’s kingdom, or is it just possible that the devil – who recommends and inspires lying and deception – would lie to his followers also?

I found these lyrics from Dio’s song “Time To Burn” and I think they may be an appropriate reminder for God mockers today:

Someone told me I would never be free

The way you are is the way you’ll always be

But its all wrong

Just never say never

We’re gonna live forever

Cause you’ve got Time to Burn

Time to Burn

Young person: do you believe you have got “time to burn”? In the words of Led Zeppelin, in the song “Stairway to Heaven”, “Sometimes words have two meanings”. Think about it.


Regarding satanic music. These are the kind of tracks that when listened to intently, open the door for demons to possess and destroy the hearers.

This man may have been a rock “god” but he has just died of stomach cancer like any other man. Only Jesus Christ has defeated death by coming back physcially resurrected after a cruel death on the cross. The detractors and mockers of Christ cannot repeat his crowning achievement. Nor can they die to take away your sins. And if they end up in hell, where there is plenty of time to “live forever” and plenty of “time to burn” they will NEVER be able to rescue themselves from that place. Don’t join them.
