One of rock’s most respected bass players, Neil Murray gets on a bus and rides to Cardiff for tonight’s Queen + Paul Rodgers ConcertWith Queen + Paul Rodgers’ tour bass player Danny Miranda needing an overnight stay in hospital tonight for an urgent minor surgery, regular bass collaborator Neil Murray – a man who has also backed Eric Clapton, Sting and Black Sabbath – is giving up his post in the We Will Rock You musical house band to make an urgent house call to Cardiff tonight to fill in for Danny for the band’s sold out Arena show.While Neil is familiar with most of the band’s biggest hits – playing them every night in the band’s West End show, he has some catching up to do when it comes to the new songs the band perform from the Cosmos Rocks album. Neil ‘s rehearsal will take the shape of several hours spent with musical director Spike Edney and guitarist Jamie Moses on the bus ride down to Cardiff this afternoon. Good luck Neil…Danny is expected to rejoin the band for the next concert – at Birmingham’s NIA on Thursday
