Jimmy Bain died... He was the bass guitar player in the bands Rainbow and Dio and also played base on Scorpions' Love at First Sting album.

Bain died while on Def Leppard's "Hysteria on the High Seas" cruise. He was performing on the cruise with the group Last In Line. No official cause of death is known at this time, but band members informed fans on the cruise that he had been battling pneumonia for some time. <--- from Wiki

He died this past Sunday.

I had a few friends on the cruise this past weekend and apparently the news of his death was released before his family found out.

Besides that sad news, it looked like those on the cruise had a good time and managed to dodge the blizzard too. :ohwell: (kicks rocks)


He was 68.

I have never understood suicide. Life can be hard, but we are given one chance. No matter how hard it gets, why would someone want to leave by their own choice? There is always hope.

To stay on topic. Nancy Reagan. RIP, wonderful Lady.
