Among the premier hard rock bassists on stage and in the studio, the late James Stewart Bain was also a multi-instrumentalist and composer.
In addition to his tenure in Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow and Dio, Jimmy also toured and waxed seminal sides with Phil Lynott (keyboards, co-writer), Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, and The Scorpions among many others.
Primarily a pocket player, among Bain’s weapons of choice were Fender Precision, Gibson Thunderbird, and Yamaha BB, along with Ashdown cabinets and amplifiers.
