I have just read that Jimmy Bain has passed away, I interviewed Jimmy when he was in Dio in 1983 when they played in Utrecht (a video of that show is on youtube) and also at the Pinkpop festival the year after. Really nice and above all down to earth bloke. Had then already plenty of history with Rainbow, Wild Horses and then with Dio.
First Lemmy now Jimmy, two fab bass players in their own right are gone, and the world has become more boring. I read that Last In Line’s debut with Bain is about to be released, so that’ll be on my wishlist then.
As soon as I have my scanner back in operation again I shall post some of Lemmy’s and Jimmy’s images.
A few more images of Hastings.
