Wishing Well Appeal

Random Notes

Led by Bill Wyman, dozens of rockers played London's Royal Albert Hall on February 20th for the Wishing Well Appeal in behalf of the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, the oldest children's hospital in the U.K. The concert included a showcase for bands discovered by Wyman's AIMS Project for struggling young musicians (AIMS is an acronym for ambition, ideas, motivation, success); a forty-five-minute set by a supergroup featuring Wyman, Phil Collins, Terence Trent 'Arby, Ronnie Wood, Kenny Jones, Ian Dury and Eddy Grant; a set by Chris Rea; and duets by Elvis Costello and Chrissie Hynde, including covers of the Beatles' "There's a Place," Ray Davies's "Thank You for the Days" and Burt Bacharach's "Windows of the World."
