Jimmy Bain's Death News Leaked Online Before Family Informed
And he's suggested some people only spread the word because they wanted to "attach themselves to a tragedy." Bain passed away at the weekend on Def Leppard's cruising festival, while Last In Line geared up for the launch of debut album Heavy Crown. He was 68.
Close friends of the veteran bassist began posting online tributes to him soon after he'd died - but that was before his relatives had been informed. Appice says: "We are very sad about the news, and in shock. The band are also saddened that the news leaked out before we were able to contact Jimmy's family.
"Within an hour and a half it was all over the internet, confirmed by people that have no business confirming anything about this, and not knowing the facts of the situation. We apologies to Jimmy's family, and Jimmy's memory." Read more here.
