EXCLUSIVE

0829_jimmy_bain_myspaceJimmy Bain, ex-bassist for the heavy metal band Dio, was busted for DUI and illegally possessing prescription meds after a car accident last night ... TMZ has learned.

According to police in Burbank, CA, Bain got into a minor accident -- in his '95 Toyota Camry -- around 9:30PM ... and responding officers suspected he was under the influence of something other than alcohol.

Cops say Bain failed a field sobriety test, and they also found Vicodin pills that were not prescribed to him.

Bain was arrested and booked for misdemeanor DUI and felony possession of prescription medication.

Cops say Bain, a founding member of Dio, also had an outstanding drug warrant. He was released on $60,000 bail.

Holy Diver.

Some people are real and don't put money in flashy cars that draw attention to them self. Especially when you drive under the influence.

Holy diver!...you've been down too long in the midnight sea...
Dio was such an awesome singer, not only technically capable but had a really unique voice, and way of using it.
And proof that it ain't the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog...the guy was only 5' 4" tall but he spit out this strong thunderous voice rocked.

TMZ is so laughable at times...DIO? So successful the guy drives a '95 Camry? My neighbor's garage band is more successful and probably more famous.

And you're dumb musically inept and you obviously don't know who Dio is. Excuse my ending a sentence with a preposition.

For all those so quick to judge the 95 toyota Camry is just the second car, which was just purchased recently.
His main car for a long time is a very high end BMW which is an absolute beauty of a car.

Jimmy was a founding member of Dio and was the main songwriter for a long time....In fact he writes and records daily to this day and a lot of his work has been recorded by some vey successful artists.....
