Former BLACK SABBATH/WHITESNAKE Bassist To Undergo Surgery

M3 bassist Neil Murray (ex-WHITESNAKE, BLACK SABBATH) will be out of action during July as he has to have an operation on his left wrist for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which affects the movement in his fingers. He will be temporarily replaced for M3's festival appearance at Open Air Hamburg Harley Days Festival on July 16 by David Levy, who has worked with M3 guitarists Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody (both ex-WHITESNAKE) many times before. Neil should be back playing in the QUEEN musical "We Will Rock You" by the beginning of August and will return for the M3 "classic WHITESNAKE" gigs in Bildein (Austria) and Heidenheim (Germany) on August 26 and August 27, respectively.

M3's first DVD, "Rough an' Ready", has just been released via Classic Pictures.

The "Rough an' Ready" DVD footage was shot on June 12, 2004 at Burnley Mechanics in Burnley, England and includes a guest appearance by former RAINBOW and current YNGWIE MALMSTEEN vocalist Doogie White.

The DVD also includes an exclusive acoustic performance and interviews recorded in 2005 live at Classic T Stage, Shepperton Film Studios, U.K. featuring classic WHITESNAKE tracks "Till The Day I Die", "Trouble", and "The Time Is Right For Love".

Presented with 5.1 Dolby Digital, 5.1 DTS and Dolby Stereo Sound Options, this DVD features the rock anthems "Don't Break My Heart Again", "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City", "Fool for Your Loving" and the No. 1 worldwide smash-hit "Here I Go Again".
