Last In Line — the band featuring former Dio, and current Def Leppard guitarist, Vivian Campbell alongside fellow Dio members Vinny Appice and Jimmy Bain, plus singer Andrew Freeman (Hurricane and Lynch Mob) — has released two videos today, a lyric video for Blame It On Me and a music video for Starmaker, as a tribute to Bain, reportedly who passed away this weekend at the age of 68. Watch the clips below.

Campbell released a statement on his Facebook page that reads:

“It’s with the heaviest of hearts that I must confirm the news of the passing of our dear friend and Last In Line band-mate, Jimmy Bain. It was Jimmy who gave me my first big break in the music industry and for that I am forever indebted.

Jimmy’s struggles with his demons were well documented through the years, but over the last 18 months he had finally won that battle and he was bright and lucid and motivated throughout the writing and recording of the new record. He leaves behind him a rich legacy of work from Rainbow, through Wild Horses, Dio, and finally, Last In Line. Jimmy was immensely proud of our new album and his input to it was immeasurable.

He was a very kind and gentle and generous soul and our lives were greatly enriched for having known him. We will continue to celebrate his life through his music.

On behalf of Vinny and Andrew, our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this most difficult of times.

Rest in peace, dear friend.”

  1. Come on, this has to stop already.

    What a great bass player, hugely underrated. I was glad to see this project take off. Such a great band, Dio’s pinnacle, in my opinion, and I hear it in these songs. It’s great to hear Vivian playing rock guitar again, one of my favorite players of all time.
