To celebrate what would have been John Lennon’s 75th birthday, Stephen MacLachlan decided to enlist the help of a few musician pals and record a couple of Lennon’s songs. Once word got out, the project grew into an eight song album featuring 20 artists and Stephen decided it should be available for purchase. Everyone involved with the project donated their time and services and the proceeds from the album will be going to Help Musicians UK, a charity that has been assisting musicians in the UK since 1921 and came through for Steve when he needed them.
I’m happy to have been able to make a small lap steel contribution to the song ‘Beautiful Boy’ and hope you will take the time to check out the whole album. The best way to do that is to buy a copy! It is available for download now, just follow the links:
Happy Birthday, John Lennon.
