Jimmy Bain

Jimmy Bain, a Scottish bass player who was right in the thick of the entire hard rock/heavy metal scene of the 1970s and 80s, collaborating in an early version of Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow and with Ronnie James Dio‘s 1980s lineup, has died at the age of 68 of undisclosed causes, although some reports have stated that Bain had been suffering from pneumonia the last few months.

Massive Metal Monday: Dio “The Last In Line”

Ronnie James Dio

As we wipe the Grammy’s spit off of his grave, today’s edition of Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to the memory of metal’s greatest vocalist, Ronnie James Dio.

The last shred of any credibility that the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences ever held amongst the metal community was put to rest last night when the Grammy for “Best Metal or Hard Rock Performance” went to Tenacious D for their cover of Dio’s “Last In Line.” Don’t get me wrong, I love Tenacious D, but they are, at best, a reverent parody of heavy metal. The fact that Grammy voters think that this, or any cover version, is more worthy of recognition than that of any of the hundreds of absolutely stellar original performances turned in across the metal spectrum last year is nothing short of disrespectful and appalling. SHAME ON YOU NARAS!

Meanwhile, let us crank up the legendary original recording of the title track of Dio‘s second album, The Last In Line and salute RJD with the devil horns on one hand and NARAS with a single digit of the other.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Dio ‘Holy Diver LIVE’

Dio Holy Diver Live

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for January 2013, Dio‘s Holy Diver Live is on sale for only $5.

Recorded live in London during their 2005 An Evening with Dio tour, Holy Diver Live contains all the tracks from the original 1983 Holy Diver album, plus several other beloved songs, such as “We Rock” and “Man on the Silver Mountain.” Released 30 years ago, it’s still difficult to conceive that Holy Diver was Dio’s debut album because the sound is so tight, so accomplished and so thoroughly the essence of ’80s metal. The hard driving sounds and motivating message of Holy Diver fan favorites like “Stand Up and Shout,” ” Rainbow in the Dark,” and, of course, the title song “Holy Diver” are as timely in the polarizing world of today as they were back then, when all we feared was not having enough dough for both a tour book and a t-shirt. Download Holy Diver Live today and raise a fist in solidarity along with the man who brought so many of us together in the spirit of friendship and common ground.
