    Default Another One Gone - RIP Jimmy Bain

    Just read that Dio bassist Jimmy Bain is dead at 68.

    First rumour is that he was killed by a black bear while camping - unconfirmed, but if true, holy shit.

    Just read about this. Damn.

    That Rainbow Rising lineup was probably my favorite. Started getting into them at that time, and I also wore thee fuck out of On Stage. Love that intro that they lifted from Wizard Of Oz.

    Bain with Dio was epic as well. Some people just work well together, at least to my ears.

    Last in Line is/was playing at this year's Rocklahoma.

    Black Bears hibernate during winter that rumour is absolutely preposterous. They shouldn't be allowed to post outrageous lies like that on Wikipedia. It's disrespectful.

    Still no word yet about the cause of death that I could see. I think it might of happened on the Def Leppard cruise ship but not sure.

    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    I know an ex girlfriend of jimmy Bain. It is very possible that she may know the truth.

    I always remember Jimmy as the guy stumbling out of the doorway, with a Bass in hand,
    during the "Rainbow in the dark" video.

    First, it's Vivian playing the solo, then you see Bain sleep-walking into the shot.

    Looks like he was actually on the Def Lep Cruise ship for a show with the band "Last in Line".

    Possible Pneumonia?

    Here is Last in Line doing a tribute to him on the cruise ship. That had to be tough.
