    LOS ANGELES – Ronnie James Dio, the metal god who replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath and later piloted the bands Heaven & Hell and Dio, has died, according to his wife and manager.


    Dio announced last fall he was suffering from stomach cancer. He was being treated at a Houston hospital, according to his website.


    "My heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45 a.m," said a statement by Wendy Dio posted Sunday on the site and confirmed by publicist Maureen O'Connor.

    I don't know much about metal. Some of my kids love it and I do like some.

    But I'm very sorry for Mr. Dio and family, friends and fans.

    I know! Suffering with that for a year must have been awful - on him and his family.

    My sympathy to his loved ones - he was a very talented man, and, from reports, a gracious one, at that.
