(Classic Rock) Last In Line have released a tribute video to Jimmy Bain, who died last weekend. The seven-minute clip features interviews with the bassist filmed while the band were working on debut album Heavy Crown, to be launched next month.

Bain died while Last In Line were taking part in Def Leppard's cruising festival in the Bahamas. He'd been unwell, but was determined to keep working.

In one of the conversations Bain recalls how he helped put Dio together with Ronnie James Dio, Vinny Appice and Vivian Campbell. He says: "I got a call from Ronnie in the middle of the night. 'We've left Sabbath, Vinny and I. We're going to put a new band together. We're looking for a bass player and a guitar player.' I said, 'Well, you've got the f***ing bass player.'

"I recommended two guitar players - Viv and John Sykes. John Sykes was too tall so we went with Viv. We jammed for about 20 or 30 minutes. It just clicked."

In another conversation, Appice explains how the band had to hide Bain in a flight case to avoid him being arrested, to which the bassist replies: "That happened a number of times."

Discussing his creative input, producer Jeff Pilson says: "You can tell everyone listens to Jimmy when we're tracking. Even though Vinny keeps time, Jimmy keeps the pulse." Watch the video here.
