Heavy metal superstar Ronnie James Dio has died, according to a statement from his wife Wendy.  Dio, 67, was being treated at Houston’s M.D. Anderson Cancer Center for stomach cancer.  He is of course the lead vocalist for Black Sabbath (replacing Ozzy Osbourne), and the bands Heaven and Hell, Richie Blackmore’s Rainbow and his own group Dio.  He is also credited with inventing the “devil horns” hand sign.  Throw some horns tonight, and remember the great Ronnie James Dio.
