not absolutely sure...but there was a benefit concert. i think eric clapton and george martin were involved. an island was ravaged by a hurricane (jeesh, this vague details are crappy) or a volcanic eruption...or something of the like. clapton may have had a recording studio there. and george martin may have lived there. montserrat was the island.

gonna be honest. i am losing interest in my own answer because of the hazy details.

but that should be it. or...close. or not.

I know I recognized some of the guys from a Clapton show I saw live in the late 80's. Phil Collins has performed with Clapton and Macca a bunch of times of course. I defintley saw George Martin standing there too in the video. How awesome to have the full blown orchestra and choir wherever it was. I wonder who else must have participated in that show. Not too shabby. :wink:

On the evening of September 15, 1997, legendary British music producer George Martin (who had risen to prominence with the Beatles) held a benefit concert at London's Royal Albert Hall for the small Caribbean island of Montserrat, which had recently been devastated by a volcanic eruption. All of the invited superstars had recorded some of their biggest hits at Montserrat's Air Studios, which Martin had founded in 1970, and this shared history gives Music for Montserrat an added sense of enjoyment among friends. Despite a few vocal dropouts and forgivable mixing problems, this outstanding concert has been captured with impressive fidelity, and while each artist performs songs appropriate to the occasion, they share the stage (along with a house band, choir, and orchestra conducted by Martin) in brilliant combinations that bring out the best in everyone involved.
The show hits full stride with Mark Knopfler's exquisite "Brothers in Arms," which segues nicely into "Money for Nothing" with guest vocals by Sting, who then performs two hits from his Police years. And while Elton John and Eric Clapton form the centerpiece of the concert (especially Clapton and Knopfler's acoustic "Layla"), Paul McCartney anchors the show with a spectacular four-song conclusion. Phil Collins's expert drumming is matched throughout by legendary percussionist Ray Kooper, and McCartney's fully orchestrated "Golden Slumbers" is a genuine show-stopper, followed by a "Hey Jude" sing-along with everyone on stage. They all follow McCartney's lead for a rockin' rendition of "Kansas City" (which the Beatles had performed as early as 1960), by which time Music for Montserrat had given its royal audience a show they would never forget. --Jeff Shannon
