Last In Line Singer Tributes Jimmy Bain

(TeamRock Radio) Last In Line vocalist Andrew Freeman has paid tribute to late bassist Jimmy Bain as a "close friend and mentor." He says he'll never forget the way he was welcomed into the band as they began a collaboration that would lead to debut album Heavy Crown, out next month.

Bain died, aged 68, while Last In Line were taking part in Def Leppard's cruising festival at the weekend. Freeman says: "I cannot stress the level of sadness that I feel, losing such a close friend and mentor.

"Jimmy, along with Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice, welcomed me into their intimate artistic circle, entrusting me with the responsibility of performing a legendary library of music - and building a new one.

"I will forever be indebted to this man for the encouraging spirit he graced me with. Rest easy, my friend. I will do my best to carry on your legacy." Read more here.
