Last in Line is an American heavy metal band formed in 2012 by former members of the original lineup of Dio. The band's name comes from the 1984 Dio album The Last in Line. Following the death of Dio frontman Ronnie James Dio in 2010, the original lineup of drummer Vinny Appice, bassist Jimmy Bain, guitarist Vivian Campbell, and keyboardist Claude Schnell reunited along with vocalist Andrew Freeman to perform the Dio songs they originally recorded.
The debut album from drummer Vinny Appice, bassist Jimmy Bain, guitarist Vivian Campbell, keyboardist Claude Schnell, and vocalist Andrew Freeman's post-Dio outfit, the aptly named Heavy Crown offers up a cornucopia of old-school metal might, spilling over with soaring vocals and meaty riffs. Last in Line were originally devised as a Dio covers/tribute band that would focus on material from the group's first three albums, Holy Diver, The Last in Line, and Sacred Heart, but after playing a series of well-received shows, the bandmembers decided to forge their own path

Lyrics to "Heavy Crown" song by Last In Line: Wide eyes open, black eyed truth How'd I end up here with everything to lose? I watch you get pain. Won't you be the star that shines up in the sky The king is dead, the heavy crown it lies Hold your tongue and get yourself in line Take care of yours I'll take care of mine The king is dead, the heavy crown it lies. The king is dead Long live the king Long live the king Long live the king Long live, never gonna die.
