The trigger for this project was the day when David Bowie 

died - Peter Cook appeared on CNN to comment. He was filled 

with a complex set of emotions - at some level he considered 

David Bowie immortal, having grown up and lived with his 

groundbreaking changes in our outlook on many things, not 

just music. With a heavy heart he went to London, quite 

unable to foresee what was about to happen.
 

After the CNN broadcast, some music friends contacted him 

about building a tribute concert. Through further 

conversations with Patti Russo, songstress with Queen, 

Meatloaf etc. and Sir Paul McCartney and Queen's Monitor 

Engineer John Callis, Peter decided to see if we could scale 

the approach to global proportions.
 

Peter's business skills, a passion for healthcare and my 

music background together to organise a series of "Live Aid" 

concerts around the world, starting with "Rock Against 

Cancer" in May 2016 and scaling up to a series of major 

events in Summer 2017 all around the world, possibly 

culminating with something like The Glastonbury Festival to 

be the pinnacle of the project.
 

To do this, Peter created perfectly formed professional 

project team in place to raise the capital to run the main 

project. Hence the Kickstarter campain, Facebook group, Twitter followers, and little help from our friends this project will be a success!
