Blain graduated from West Valley High School and completed courses in music at Yakima Valley College.  He went on to play string bass in the Yakima Symphony Orchestra and the Yakima Community Band.  He also played electric bass in modern rock groups with his twin brother on the drums and guitar.

Blain was also a good fly fisherman and enjoyed belly boating at Leech Lake or fly fishing the Naneum Creek.  Dedicated he was. One-time belly boating on Leech Lake he had a seizure and passed out for a while.  When he came out of it he just went on fishing to catch his limit.  Blain was a very kind person.  He would go out of his way to help someone less fortunate than he.  He was also a hard worker no matter what job he did.
