Campaign in Memory of Jimmy Bain

Jimmy Bain was a rock guitarist who grew up in Dunbar and gained international fame with heavy metal groups like Rainbow. Jimmy died last year at the age of 68, and an old school friend, Mark Beattie, has launched a campaign in his memory. Mark is raising funds so that a plaque can be mounted on Jimmy’s family home, the former Forester’s Arms (on the corner of Colvin and Castle street). Mark also hopes to commission a statue to be located on a suitable site in the town. You can find out more from Mark’s website here:
