    Daisley replaced Jimmy Bain as Rainbow's bassist in January 1977. He would only spend about a year and a half with Rainbow, but it was the springboard to his work with Randy Rhoads on Ozzy's first two albums. Bob never wrote anything for Rainbow. Dio tried to form a band with Daisley two times (in 1979 and again in 1983) after they left Rainbow in '78.

    Bob's time and tone here are killer. He really propels the band. Jimmy Bain co-wrote this song and played it on the first leg of the "Rising" tour. Bob mostly kept Jimmy's bassline, but there are a few differences. Bob and Cozy Powell were a powerful team. You can hear Jimmy's version on Rainbow's "On Stage" album.

    Bob's still the reason I play bass. Fantastic musician and truly great guy. Got to talk with him for about an hour and a half a few years back. Couldn't have been cooler or more accommodating.

  8. Love this song. Prefer the studio arrangement though. Bob's a killer. Saw him with Gary Moore on the Wold Frontiers tour. Still my favorite show of all time. Back to Daisley. Killer player and tone. Always "there". And Cozy. Even now my favorite drummer. Could play any style and do it well.
