I chatted with Cavern Club owner Bill Heckle yesterday, he told me that the Russian scientists and monks who are stationed up in Antartica sing "Let It Be" on the 6 minute video that was be presented at tonight's Beatles "Peace, Love and Understanding" Concert being held at the Anglican Cathedral, and that it is very moving. Bill shared that he had great difficulties communicating with the small community stationed up at Antartica because there are no phones or email and it sometimes takes 3 months for a letter to get sent to them and they didn't have any film equipment to record a message for tomorrow night's concert.
For the Beatles "Peace, Love and Understanding" Concert, Bill has recruited people from 7 different continents to participate by having them videotape a short message. Bill's efforts deserve a great deal of thanks in spending over a year to set this event up and to make this concert a truly global event with participants from seven different continents!
