Edu Falaschi : Thanks on Twitter

Edu Falaschi : "Thanks a lot to all the fans and friends for your love and support ! You know how I love you all and this crazy thing called Heavy Metal! Lots of hugs and kisses !

I remember that my love to heavy metal began when I bought my first album for my 12th birthday, it was The Last in Line!

It was like that: I’ve got some money from my grandma and ran to a record store and asked the salesman "mister, do you have a heavy disc?” He looked at me smiling and said – this one kicks ass!

I bought it and run to listen on a musical player of my father, increased the volume and… from the first note my future way was traced!

For the first time I got to hear the best voice in the world: Ronnie James Dio, the master of masters!

So, because of a day like today, my birthday, today I’m here with you, guys!!! Thank you a lot for being with me in this life!"

Almah : RIP Dio

Here are some messages from the Almah's members regarding the death of Ronnie James Dio.

Edu Falaschi : “Last Sunday night, May 16th, I was returning from Manaus after having an unforgettable weekend with my band Angra when received one of the saddest notices in my life: Ronnie Dio has left us.

The world has lost the Best Heavy Metal singer of all time but, above all of that, we lost one of the most brilliant souls that already existed! An artist who loved his fans and did what really liked: to sing Heavy Metal!

Dio was my great master, a person who inspired me as an artist and a human being! My only idol has gone! It will be very hard to get over this sad feeling in my heart!

I would like to send my deepest condolences to Dio’s family. That God be with them!

Anyway, his art, music and especially his unique voice will always be in our hearts!

Dio, we will love you forever! Thank you for having been with us! May 16th the saddest day of Rock and Heavy Metal!”

Marcelo Barbosa : "This is a very sad feeling of finiteness that comes with a death of some person. In case of persons well-known worldwide this feeling is even more intense, because it’s like you lose someone very dear. Happily, in case of Dio, his marvelous life-work turned him immortal. It’s enough to hear any of his classic works of any of his bands to be convinced that his legacy will live on, whether he is physically present or not. Rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio."
