Former ELF and RAINBOW Bassist Craig Gruber passes away


Sad news for the rock community… After battling prostate cancer for a long time, bassist Craig Gruber lost the battle at the age of 64, while the cancer had reached stage 4. A fundraising campaign had been ongoing by his son, Graham, but unfortunately, he couldn't hold on anymore...

Albeit not a highly recognizable name, Gruber had worked with many world renowned artists and took part in rock monuments, like 1975’s “Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow” and he also played with Gary Moore, appearing in the latter's 1984 live album “We Want Moore”. Gruber was also a member of ELF alongside Ronnie James Dio. Founder of the band BIBLE BLACK with drummer Gary Driscoll (ex-ELF, ex-RAINBOW), he also dealt with the metal genre as member of ED3N and RAVEN LORD.

Craig Gruber will now be playing over the rainbow with the great Ronnie…
