DORO PESCH Issues Statement Regarding Ronnie James Dio’s Passing

” …I’m so sad and heartbroken it’s hard to even believe what has happened. It feels like losing one of my best friends. Ronnie was such an incredible inspiration to me both as a musician and as a person. His tremendous talent, the depth of his voice, his sincere personality… it’s difficult to put into words the wonderful soul that he was to his friends and fans around the world. I’ve never seen a musician be as good to their fans the way Ronnie was. I’m so grateful that we were able to support Dio many times through out the years. Ronnie meant the world to me. I love him so much and miss him so deeply. Rest in peace, Ronnie. Your spirit will live on forever. We love you.” – Doro Pesch, May 2010
