RICK WAKEMAN: registra versioni per pianoforte di brani di 'Life On Mars'


Rick Wakeman, caro amico di David Bowie e pianista sul suo disco del 1971 Life On Mars, ha deciso di pubblicare alcune nuove versioni per pianoforte dei brani Life on Mars, Always Together e Space Oddity, le cui royalties andranno al Macmillan Cancer Support

I due brani sono stati per la prima volta eseguiti in radio, alla BBC Radio 2, durante uno show in ricordo di Bowie. Il video di questa incredibile performance ha avuto un numero così alto di visite da spingere il tastierista a questa iniziativa benefica. 
 
Rick: "I feel extremely fortunate to be able to release my piano version of David Bowie’s Life On Mars and Space Oddity, both of which I performed on the original releases. I think it’s very apt for the proceeds to go to Macmillan, a charity that is so crucial to so many people. I witnessed this first hand when I lost my mother to cancer and the work they do comes from the heart and is truly priceless.

“Whilst some amazing advances in medicine mean that some form of cancers have a very high survival rate and indeed prolonged life in others, with all cancers it is a very tough time for both the patient and their loved ones. Hopefully the songs will not only be a fitting tribute to David, but will also raise some money to help Macmillan with the wonderful work they do, ensuring no-one faces cancer alone.”

Jane Maher, presidente del Medical Officer del Macmillan Cancer Support: “We were so very sad to hear the news about David Bowie and our thoughts are with his family and friends. Sadly the number of people with cancer in the UK is growing rapidly and half of us will face a cancer diagnosis at some point in our lives, so it has never been more important that everyone gets the emotional, practical, physical and financial support they need. We want people to feel comfortable talking openly about what they’re going through with friends, family and experts or - through our online community – other people whose lives have been affected by cancer.

“We know that music is something that not only brings people together, but also helps them through difficult times and so we are deeply grateful that Rick has decided to donate the proceeds from these tracks to Macmillan. The money raised will help us to continue to offer a range of support for anyone affected by cancer.”
