Exclusive Golden Gods Awards Preview: Ronnie James Dio On His Comeback From Cancer

One of the things I was most excited about while shooting the fifth season of That Metal Show was the chance to see my longtime friend, Ronnie James Dio. I had last seen Ronnie just a few months prior when the Heaven & Hell camp bought me to LA to do an interview with them for an upcoming DVD. At that time, Ronnie had just started his chemo for stomach cancer. I was very curious to see how Ronnie was doing now that a couple months had passed since our last encounter.

Needless to say, I was thrilled to see him well enough to attend the Golden Gods Awards (airing on VH1 Classic on Saturday, May 22 at 10 p.m./9c) and approach our broadcast position on the Black Carpet. He has been a great friend and supporter of mine for many years now, and not only is he one of my favorite musicians, he’s also truly one of my favorite people. As you can see, he is positive about his prognosis, thankful for his many fans and their support, and looking great. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to battle this illness, and enjoy this clip as proof of what positive vibes and support from us all (along, of course, with the help of all the great doctors working on his case) can do. Get well, RJD!
