I think the reports of his death are greatly exagerrated.
Unfortunately, reports of his death are real. From Wendy:
Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

A true rocker
Steeling from John Adams' final words....
"Ozzie Osbourne survives."
Having seen Dio at least 15 times and Ozzy a couple of times I can very happily state that ozzy is not fit to be mentioned in the same breath
