Mason emerged later in the show to play drums on a rendition of the Pink Floyd classic “Comfortably Numb.” Other participants included Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Tom Jones, Paul Carrack, Mike Rutherford, Bonnie Tyler, Rick Wakeman, Paul Jones, Zucchero, Paul Young, Dire Straits’ John Illsley and Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall. Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker led the house band made up of bassist Dave Bronze, keyboardist Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens, guitarists Andy Fairweather Low and Robbie McIntosh and drummers Graham Broad and Ian Paice.
