2/4: JIMMY BAIN PODCAST TRIBUTE, JOE ELLIOTT, VEGAS BOUND SOON, MORE
Hope everyone takes a second to listen to my podcast this week that was just posted today. It’s 3 recent interviews I did with Andrew Freeman (singer in Last In Line) as well as Vivian Campbell and Vinnie Appice, the two remaining members of the original Dio band. The guys discuss the life of Jimmy Bain and share some great stories about Jimmy, who passed away a couple of weeks ago due to lung cancer. I hope you enjoy the insights and stories about a guy that may have not been a marquee name in the mainstream, but was a hugely important figure in Dio, Rainbow and more including Last In Line his final band. The podcast is free worldwide now at www.PodcastOne.com or on Itunes free worldwide. Just search The Eddie Trunk Podcast.
New FM show debuts tomorrow night 11P ET on Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston and all affiliates over the weekend. Joe Elliott is my guest. Joe won’t be able to sing for a few months while his voice heels but he should be good to go for Moonstone Music Festival in Orlando which I am appearing at 4/30 and 5/1! MANY other major band on this event as well.
I’m headed to Vegas next week to attend and speak at a radio conference. While there I plan to catch some great shows including Lamb Of God/Anthrax, Michael Monore, and Black Sabbath/Rival Sons. Should be a rockin week!
ALL avenues being explored for a new TMS home. Thanks for all your emails. News when I have it.
Get ready for an all new EddieTrunk.com launching soon!
In this article you say jimmy died a couple of years ago.
Typo, now fixed
Passed away a couple of years ago? Typo…
Those Dio albums with Jimmy playing bass really made ME want to play the bass guitar. Such an underrated bass player.
And he wrote a bunch of stuff too.
Thanks to you for paying respect to Jimmy. I listened to the podcast this morning. Like you point out in the podcast, he was a more behind the scenes guy who didn’t gravitate towards the limelight so his death hasn’t been a topic like other recent rock star deaths. But those of us that knew the bands Jimmy was a big part of, especially Dio, knew and respected him. Again, thank you for the tribute to Jimmy. I can’t wait to purchase and hear the debut album of LAST IN LINE.
Hopefully they can find someone to do the songs justice to play some shows. Am looking forward to seeing Vivian play in that style again. Douglas Pinnick would be great because of his tone. Jeff Pilson produced the album and was even a member of the Dio band for awhile. BOB Daisly followed Jimmy in Rainbow and his style and tone would also work I think
