Su mujer ha emitido el siguiente comunicado:
"Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach
cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After
he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.
"Long live rock and roll, long live Ronnie James Dio.
to all the friends and fans from all over the world that have sent well
wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up."
Esperemos que el pequeño gran Ronnie lo supere y esté pronto dándolo todo encima del escenario como siempre.
