[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jackson Browne[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ringo Starr[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Brian Wilson[/lastfm] will be featured on the forthcoming Buddy Holly tribute record, Listen to Me: Buddy Holly.
In a web video, shot by Rolling Stone magazine, each of the tribute’s musicians had kind words for Holly, including Ringo who said: “In all of rock n’ roll history, he’s in the top ten.”
The compilation also features Stevie Nicks, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, Pat Monahan of Train, Lyle Lovett, Natalie Merchant, Zooey Deschanel and others.
Proceeds from sales will go to benefit various music related charities such as The GRAMMY Foundation’s GRAMMY camps and Artists’ House Music.
Listen to Me: Buddy Holly is due out on September 6; its release coincides roughly with the 75th anniversary of the legendary rocker’s birth (September 7).
