“Today my heart is broken [está partido], Ronnie passed away [faleceu] at 7:45 a.m. 16th May,” Wendy Dio said in a message posted [publicada] on his official website.

Dio, 67, followed [foi o sucessor, substituiu] Ozzy Osbourne as Black Sabbath’s lead vocalist [vocalista principal] in 1979.

“Many, many friends and family were able to [conseguiram] say their private good-byes [se despedir pessoalmente] before he peacefully [em paz] passed away,” she wrote. “Ronnie knew [sabia] how much [o quanto] he was loved by all [era amado por todos].”

His last public appearance [Ele apareceu em público pela última vez] was in April at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards [Premiação] when he accepted [recebeu] a vocalist of the year award for his work [por seu trabalho] on last year’s Heaven and Hell album. Dio appeared frail [aparentava estar fraco], but he was able to speak when accepting his award.

Born [nome de batismo] Ronald James Padavona in 1942 in New Hampshire, Dio’s professional music career [carreira] began as a high school student [aluno do ensino médio] in the late 1950s [no final da década de 50].

His 1960s rock group [Seu grupo de rock nos anos 60] The Electric Elves evolved into [passaram a ser] Elf by the early 1970s [no início dos anos 70], when the group played heavy blues rock.

Dio’s rock became darker [ficou mais pesado; mais escuro (lit.)] with his band Rainbow, which he left [da qual saiu] in 1979 to join [para entrar no] Black Sabbath.

Black Sabbath released [lançou] three albums with Dio, including “Heaven and Hell” in 1980, “Mob Rules” in 1981 and “Live Evil” in 1982.

Dio left [saiu da] that band in 1982, but he had a brief reunion [uma breve volta, retomada] with the group a decade later [depois].

He formed [criou] the group Dio in 1982 and later Heaven and Hell.
