Last In Line singer Andrew Freeman comments on how bassist Jimmy Bain should be remembered
Last In Line and former Lynch Mob lead vocalist Andrew Freeman was recently interviewed by Ryan Witting for the Rockin’ You All Night podcast.
Freeman was asked how his former Last in Line bandmate and deceased bassist Jimmy Bain should be remembered to which he replied (as transcribed by Ryan Witting):
“As one of the greatest musicians who ever lived, great musician, and great song writer. He doesn’t get credit for the amount of songwriting he’s done. He doesn’t get credit of how amazing of a keyboard player he is…just a musician all around. He’s just a well-rounded musician. He played with Kate Bush. He played with Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy. He was in that whole circle. I mean Rainbow, you know. He came from a crappy little town in Scotland…from nothing. He loved people, and he loved to party, and he just loved being in rock and roll. It was his favorite thing in the world. It was a pleasure to know him.”
In terms of the band Last In Line, Freeman advised: “Last in Line is a completely different entity. It’s becoming its own thing. It’s a good group of people. It’s a group of brothers. We’re a brotherhood. It feels like it’s a new band, and a struggle like it was when I used to [go] with my bros in high school when we’d jump in a van and play as many shows as we could, and didn’t care about the bullshit that goes along with it.”
