Teenage Cancer Trust /Buddy Holly Fundation charity project
« on: January 11, 2022, 12:54:10 PM »
As far as we know, this project involves "every guitar legend" and according Guy, he has recorded, between others, Albert Lee, Eric Clapton, Peter Townsend and Mark Knopfler.

Apparently this is going to be for a charity record, but I asked Guy if this is going to be expanded to a concert at the RAH, like the usual Teenage Cancert Trust concerts, that had been canceled from 2020 to today, and he answered he can't say just yet.

I opened this thread to have the info about this project in its own thread.

Guy:
I am also producing a charity project for Teenage Cancer Trust, which involves just about every great living guitar player, an enormous collaboration. More on that in a few months.


From his forum:
The charity project is for Teenage Cancer Trust/The Buddy Holly Foundation. I am producing a recording which involves a host of players, some of which I have already recorded at BG (Pete Townshed, Albert Lee, Eric C. and of course M.K.) More on this in the coming weeks.

You might get lucky, now and then

So far, he has mentioned only British players, I wonder who else could be included? is it Guy's choices of who is included? or the trust? will they be playing Buddy Holly songs?
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

I think Guy is only producing. Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend are involved with the TCT so I guess it's them who asked people to participate.

Which others guitar legends could be in this project?

I'd say that Hank Marvin might be one, maybe David Gilmour, Peter Frampton... Maybe searching for the patrons of the Buddy Holly foundation we could guess more.

All of those would be great, in particular David Gilmour, I'd also like to add Mike Oldfield, but then I always do ;D

How does it work, do the artists play music Buddy Holly -style, or their own? MK has been involved in many tribute projects, and he clearly enjoys it, but it just not what I wish for. I hardly ever listen to his tribute stuff, except the one for JJ Cale.

The song Mark did with Waylon Jennings for another Buddy Holly tribute album, Learning the Game, is wonderful.

We don't know much about this project yet.

That's why when I say something I always says "I guess" or "My guess".

My guess is that Pete Townsend, who is friend with MK, came to him and told him about a charity project, and his wish for use British Grove and he and his team for it, as long as Guy says he's producing it.

We will just have to disagree on that one. Listened to it right after the reply, and have already forgotten it..
I know we don't know much, I just wondered if there has been similar projects from the BH fondation  :)

From Guy's forum:

Q: Hello Doc. As you would imagine, fans are quite curious about this charity project, that “every great living guitar player” sentende really fire up people’s expectation, and we started to imagine which other names apart on what you mentioned could be involved, our wild guess goes with names like David Gilmour, Peter Frampton and alikes, are our guess good? Also the information about the Buddy Holly fundation… Does it means these are going to be Holly’s songs sung and played by those artists?

A: Your guesses are good. Info on this exciting project very soon.
