A tribute single to the late DJ John Peel hits the shops today.
Contributors include Sir Elton John, Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, David Gilmour and Peter Hook.
The song, a version of the Buzzcocks’ Ever Fallen in Love, will raise funds for Amnesty International, one of Peel’s favourite charities.
Newer names, such as The Futureheads, El Presidente, and The Datsuns also participated.
All the artists taking part were championed or admired by Peel during his career.
The single, which also features the song’s original creator Pete Shelley, is the brainchild of Peel’s son, Tom Ravenscroft.
It features vocal and piano from Sir Elton, rhythm guitar by Gilmour and bass guitar by Hook of New Order.
Peel died on October 25 last year while on holiday in Peru.
New Order recently headlined a tribute gig as part of John Peel Day, held exactly one year after the DJ’s last Radio 1 show.
