Since You Been Gone by Rainbow (1980)

Since You Been Gone by Rainbow (1980)
"Since You Been Gone" is a song by Rainbow written by former Argent guitarist Russ Ballard and first released on his 1976 album Winning. It was produced by Roger Glover.

Prior to Rainbow, the Illinois rock band Head East recorded and released a cover version of the song on their 1978 eponymous album, reaching #46 on the Billboard Hot 100. A year later, Rainbow re-recorded the song and released it as a B-side single. Head East's version of this song was their highest charting single.

Rainbow's cover version, released in 1979 with Graham Bonnet on lead vocals, was a Top 10 single in the United Kingdom and was named the 82nd Best Hard Rock Song of All Time by VH1. Rainbow's version was used in a 2009 T-Mobile advertisement filmed at Liverpool Street station in London, England.
