My baby son Sam was taken ill a little over two months ago. He has restrictive cardiomyopathy. He will need a heart transplant. Since the diagnosis we have been in Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, which is the best children’s hospital in the UK, if not Europe, if not world, I am told!! Sam has had two external “Berlin” hearts fitted to bridge the gap until a heart can be found for him. There is no timeframe for this unfortunately. We’re in for the long haul. If all is successful he will live 20 to 30 years but who knows what the world will be like then and the technology is advancing so rapidly.

I'd like to try and get all my fave musicians to sign one of their albums “For Sam” and send it to him for the future! I don’t mind if the album is old or new. If any of you know any musicians who might be willing to help start Sam's CD collection I would be most appreciative. Of course I will pay but as you can imagine I don't have masses amount of money at the moment. If they could provide a Paypal link or bank account.

I am very lucky to know a few of my heroes as well as a new "dangerous" lead singer and they are on the case.

Secondly, I am considering doing a charity EP/album with some of these musicians featured in one way or another, with proceeds being split between Sick Children's Trust (where I am staying in London for free), GOSH, and anyone who contributes to the product. Would anyone buy it? It could be covers or could be originals written especially. Working on it.

Lastly, when Sam comes home (probably in about a year's time?) if I can fly some of these musicians over would anyone attend a "Rock Event" in Southern England? Again proceeds split as above including travelling costs?

I am not interested in any money at all for myself or my family. This situation has changed me TOTALLY and I want to help some people that are currently helping me and my family and get enjoyment out of it in the process for myself and anyone else who is interested.

PM me for my address to send anything for Sam and to send me PayPal links and bank accounts for payment.

Thanks for your time. The little dude thanks you as well.

Mark Hollis is a genius
