‘Minds Behind the Music’ is a funny, thought-provoking and eye-opening new book, and is set for release tomorrow, 29 October 2021. The book, which has been written to raise awareness about the plight of Planet Earth, features an amazing line-up of over 80 legendary musicians, who were asked about a myriad of topics, including religion, aliens, politics and, most importantly, the critical issues around climate change.
Some of the most influential music artists of all time participated, including Ian Anderson, Suzi Quatro, Don McLean, Bobby Rydell, Manfred Mann, Peter Noone, Ron Keel and many others in the discography and jukebox of our lives.
The book is accompanied by a fundraising album, also called, ‘Minds Behind the Music‘, which features unique and special songs, recorded specifically for the project. Proceeds will go to the Born Free Foundation, the animal charity founded by Virginia McKenna OBE, Will Travers OBE and Bill Travers MBE, who are passionate about wild animal welfare and compassionate conservation.
“Nothing speaks to people more than music,” said the spokesperson for ‘Minds Behind the Music’. “These legends of rock and pop have an immense influence on their fans and speak their truth and feelings around the state of planet Earth. ‘Minds Behind the Music’ is a ground-breaking book and shares meaningful insight with music fans. So, sit in your most comfortable chair with a nice, environmentally friendly cup of tea. Enjoy the book and listen to its namesake album, which is an amazing compilation featuring independent bands and established stars, including Mungo Jerry and Simon Kirke of Bad Company.”
