Dee Murray was born in 1946. His career included bass work with a large number of notables, but his biggest claim to fame was most likely his tenure with Elton John. His other work includes considerably unusual material (Barbi Benton and Barry Manilow) and albums by others with Elton John links (Kiki Dee, Nigel Olsson, Davey Johnstone, and Bernie Taupin). He also worked with Procol Harum, Alice Cooper, Yvonne Elliman, England Dan & John Ford Coley, John Prine, and Rick Springfield. He died in 1992 of a stroke and a long bout with cancer.
