Last In Line Album Release Was Bittersweet For Band

(Classic Rock) Last In Line guitarist Vivian Campbell has told of his sadness that bassist Jimmy Bain never got to see the band's debut album hit the streets. The Dio offshoot's debut Heavy Crown was released last month, just weeks after Bain died of lung cancer. But the record was actually completed a year earlier and the band took the decision to delay its release while Campbell underwent cancer treatment.

Now Campbell, who is also a member of Def Leppard, says the timing robbed Bain of the chance to see the record being released. Campbell tells About Entertainment: "The response and the reviews thus far to the record have been very, very encouraging. It's such a bittersweet crossroads that we find ourselves at because Jimmy didn't live to see it.

"It's super sad because the record was actually in the can for a year. It was ready to be released last spring and we elected not to release it because we believed in it so much that we wanted to wait until we all had a clear schedule to go on tour to promote it. It's just super sad that we waited so long and got to the 11th hour, and Jimmy didn't live to see it." Read more here.
