Stars including singer Nicole Scherzinger and British actor Simon Pegg have been photographed in mid-air for a new Oxfam charity campaign. The organisation's new Lift Lives for Good campaign aims to publicise the charity's work in poverty-stricken communities around the world, and a number of famous faces offered to jump in the air for a striking advertising drive.
In the pictures, by celebrity snapper Rankin, Scherzinger is seen in a jump while fellow singer Eliza Doolittle appears to float like Peter Pan, and Pegg pulls a Superman-style pose.
Other stars who took part include Anna Friel, Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright, David Morrissey, former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, and model Laura Bailey.
Veteran rocker Paul Weller will bring festive cheer to fans in London next month (Dec13) by staging a special Christmas concert to aid kids in war-torn Syria. The former The Jam star will headline Save The Children's Christmas Tree Sessions along with Supergrass rocker Gaz Coombes and soul star Will Heard.
The gig at the British capital's Union Chapel on 5 December (13) will raise funds for Save The Children's Syria Crisis Appeal.
Veteran rock stars from Roxy Music, The Smiths, Suede and Supergrass have teamed up to form a new supergroup for an upcoming drama series. Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce, Suede bassist Mat Osman and Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes have come together as Chaz Chance And The Prophets.
The fictional 1970s glam rock band was put together to feature in a three-part U.K. TV series titled The Records, which charts the highs and lows of a music industry talent agent, and the rockers have recorded three songs for the show.
Joyce tells NME magazine, "The calibre of the players - heroes, y'know (sic) - it'd be mad not to do it. And the tracks are genuinely good. They sound Bowie-ish, but they're not a pastiche."
