    My apologies, sadly the first report was correct. Dio has died, one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time and by all accounts an absolute gent.

    What a total, total star.

    He absolutely kicked the living daylights out of bands a third of his age.

    Amazing man. RIP.

    It's very sad news. A real vocal master, with an iconic tone. Pity he couldn't beat it, but by f*ck, he led a full life! RIP you legend.

    R.I.P. the original 'nicest man in rock'. Never heard a bad word said about Dio. True talent. I'm sure he's laughing it up in Hades on a large spikey throne.

    Such a sad day. One of the most wonderful and iconic voices in Rock. I saw him live twice, most recently at The Spring and Airbrake in 2005 - One of the greatest gigs I've ever seen. That voice never deserted him and he was someone who helped to provide the soundtrack to my life from teens and musically formative years through to now. God Bless, Ronnie.

    Something's calling me back
    There's a light in the black
    Am I ready to go
    I'm coming home
