Don’t Stop cover to help musicians

Don’t Stop cover to help musicians

A new version of Fleetwood Mac’s Don’t Stop is being performed by ‘The Glovebox All Stars’ and sold to raise funds for music industry charities.

The talent performing and producing the song has been pulled together by Adrian Phillips whose music promotions company Glovebox Live staged what turned out to be its last gig on 14th March 2020, just before the first Covid-19 national lockdown. 

It is intended to raise funds to help some of the many individual musicians, stage crew and venues who continue to face a bleak future.

Phillips has put together artists and bands that he and his team had worked with over the last six years. 

‘Don’t Stop’ is part download single and part video project, with all profits going to help industry charities like Help Musicians UK, The Music Venue Trust and Stagehand.

 

Why Don’t Stop?

Phillips said that had and the band members had always loved ‘Rumours’ and ‘Don’t Stop’ in particular. “The lyrics are tremendously uplifting and hopeful, the tune as bouncy and as infectious as you can get and it suits the amazing voices we’ve managed to get together”, he said.
