The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra participated in recording a single, earlier today. The track will also feature The Farm, amongst many other noted celebs. Produced by Guy Chambers and conducted by Vasily Petrenko, the proceeds will go towards helping the families of the 96 dead victims pay their legal costs.
‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ by The Hollies features top recording artists including Robbie Williams, Mel C, Paloma Faith and Beverley Knight. Also part of the impressive line-up are Mick Jones (The Clash), Peter Hooton (The Farm), Pete Wylie, Richard Hawley, Dave McCabe (The Zutons), Paul Heaton (Beautiful South), Hollie Cook, John Power (Cast) and Gerry Marsden (Gerry and the Pacemakers), Justice Tonight Band, with further names to be announced.
By the way, those of you who have been around as long as me, may know that world famous producer, Guy Chambers, is the son of former RLPO Principal Flute Colin Chambers.
