David Gilmour, Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant are just three of the stars that have put themselves forward to perform on a tribute single to the late John Peel.
A version of the Buzzcocks' 'Ever Fallen In Love' is to be released in the DJ's honour. Also appearing on the new recording will be Buzzcocks man Pete Shelley, Peter Hook, Jeff Beck, The Datsuns, The Futureheads and El Presidente. The bands were hand picked by Peel's son, Tom Ravenscroft.
The Guardian quotes Shelley: "It is very eclectic. That was the magic of John, though. He was somebody who embraced all forms of music over the last 40 years."
Release date is November 21st, which coincides with Peel's induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Proceeds from the single will go to Amnesty International.
