Last In Line – Heavy Crown

lilheavycIt really blows big time to have to start a review with something really tragic and sad. I’m talking about the passing of bass player Jimmy Bain, of course. He was just about to release his debut album with his new band Last In Line, the album that was supposed to be his comeback when cancer struck and took his life. That disgusting disease that keeps on taking lives in an ever flowing stream lately. So sad, so sad. And if that wasn’t enough, it was clear that Bain had been clean and sober for some 18 months, the first time in a long, long time, even though he had kicked his heroin habit many years ago. A good thing it wasn’t an OD that took his life, something I guess many feared was the case.But Jimmy will live forever in our hearts. Sleep well, mr Bassman! Last In Line were formed by ex Dio members Bain (also ex- Rainbow, WW III and Wild Horses), guitarist Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard, ex- Whitensake, Riverdogs, Shadow King), Vinny Appice (Resurrection Kings, ex- Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, WW III, Kill Devil Hill, WAMI) and keyboard player Claude Schnell with new frontman Andrew Freeman (ex- Lynch Mob, Hurricane) as a tribute act to their former boss and friend Ronnie James Dio before they decided to give it a go as a real band and release new music.
