Farewell, Ronnie James Dio

It's official: Ronnie James Dio has passed away from stomach cancer.

I'm grossly under-qualified to sum up RJD's musical accomplishments, but, as those of your familiar with his work might agree, I just know he would have had the coolest dice bag if he had been a gamer.

Generate your next adventure is Ronnie's honor with the Ronnie James Dio Lyric Generator to help inspire you.

"Now came the time of mourning. Funeral pyres brightened the
night sky for weeks and songs of sorrow could be heard
across the land long after the flames had sputtered and died. "

From Magica.

Dio has inspired many an epic mystical scene or battle scene for me over the decades. He now travels that Astral planes. Farewell.
