THE ROCK SHOW ON SUNSHINE RADIO -- SUNDAY 6PM-9PM -- February 17th.
******Change of Rock Show Guest*****
Former WHITESNAKE bassist NEIL MURRAY talks to presenter Jeff Collins about the making of the group’s highly acclaimed Lovehunter album.
From 1978 until 1987, MURRAY helped make WHITESNAKE one of the most popular bands in the world. He recorded 9 albums with the band, including Ready An' Willing, Come An' Get It, Saints An' Sinners and 1987.
Murray, who also spent three years in BLACK SABBATH, is regarded as one of the best bass players in rock.
Tune in from 6pm to hear NEIL MURRAY talk to the Rock Show about joining WHITESNAKE, working with the band’s singer DAVID COVERDALE, the recording of Lovehunter, its controversial cover and turning WHITESNAKE into a worldwide success.
Plus the Rock Show’s ‘Unsigned/New Band Of The Week’ is the up and coming Hereford band TEN THOUSAND FLUSHES.
Also there are two live Tracks from GILLAN. Angel Air records has unearthed a previously unheard concert from the Marquee Club in London in 1978 as IAN GILLAN'S then-new band warmed up for the Reading festival a few weeks later.
All that plus three hours of the best classic rock tunes around.
