"Letter" enclosed with Waters Berlin Promo CD
15 June 1990
In 1945 Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC OM DSO DFC took an injured
airman into his home and looked after him until he died. That was
the beginning. The Leonard Cheshire Foundation International now
runs 265 Cheshire homes for the disabled in 48 countries around the
In 1989 Leonard launched a new venture, The Memorial Fund for
Disaster Relief. Over the next five years, The Memorial Fund will
raise $1 billion - $10 for every life lost in the two World Wars and
subsequent conflicts. The income generated by this capital will be
used to save lives in future disasters.
"For every life lost, a life saved!"
Last September Leonard asked me to put on THE WALL as an event
focus attention to The Memorial Fund. I agreed. The question was,
where to do it? The question was answered in Berlin last November
On the 21st of July 1990, between East and West Berlin, I will give one
performance of THE WALL. It will be an unparalleled rock, music,
Performing with me will be my band, the Bleeding Heart Band, the Red
Army Choir, the East Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus,
helicopters from the British 7 Flight Army Aircorps, the 100-man
combined marching band of the Soviet forces in Germany and a select
number of guest artists.
If you in radio support The Memorial Fund by mentioning THE WALL
concert in Berlin on the 21st of July and the subsequent live album
when you play any of the cuts on this sampler, both Leonard and I
would be very grateful.

PS I recorded this version of "Another Brick in the Wall - Part 2"
with the Bleeding Heart Band just for this special event.
