Amsterdam, think the U.S. HOF, Roger's Electric Fire tour...good, solid bassist. In my opinion better than Pino P, but that's just my opinion! I love his bassline on 'London Town, C'mon Down'!

I think Steve Barnacle is a good choice- Roger is used to playing with him-which I think is important for the rhythm section. I also like his base lines on Electric Fire Album.

Thought is was Spike at the US HOF concert. My money is on Jamie Moses.

Well Jamie Moses is definitely on tour, he's posted as much on his website. Don't know if it's as a bassist or second guitar.

Spike was on keyboards at the HOF, Steve Barnacle was on bass :-)

Pino Palladino was on Bass at the HOF show, not Steve Barnacle.

I very much doubt Jamie will play bass. Steve Barnacle is more likely.

They certainly won't have someone that isn't a bass player "by trade" - they will have to have someone whose principal instrument is bass.

Hah - it's like saying that Brian should sing....

So what's Jamie's role? 2nd guitar? What about when Paul plays also?

I would be surprised if Jamie is there - any second guitar duties can be carried out by Paul who would only really be needed on Free or Bad Co. material if at all. They also have Spike who can "turn a trick" if needs be.

Fingers crossed though that they will just be Paul, Brian, Roger and a bass player - unfortunately Spike will be there, but we can pretend.....

From Jamie Moses website:

"4th February, 2005

Well folks, looks like I’ll be off ‘round Europe and the UK with Queen & Paul Rodgers then! We’re all really looking forward to this one – hope to see you there!"

Jamie has got a solo carreer. I know he is making some soloing from time to time. Maybe he will be some kind of 1st act...

The problem with Spike is that his sound seems to dominate over and above the guitar and vocals. Listen to "anything" from 1985 and 1986 and all you can hear is a synthesiser over the top of the other instruments.
