tilbrook to be on top of the world?
Or pretty close there. Billboard reports that Glenn is set to attempt a climb on Mt. Everest, with Nick Harper no less, for a cancer charity:
The event also served as a precursor to another major trek for the Love Hope Strength Foundation. On Oct. 9, several other musicians -- including Squeeze's Glen Tilbrook and English songwriter Nick Harper -- will attempt to climb Mount Everest. The journey will be filmed for a VH1/MTV special and a BBC prime-time documentary.
Could that possibly be true? I checked out the Love, Hope, Strength Web site and they confirm that Glenn has confirmed to be one of 45 musicians who will make a 12-day trek to the base camp at Everest and then perform a concert there. How awesome. It will be filmed for VH-1 and BBC. According to that site, here are the acts:
Mike Peters – The Alarm
Billy Duffy – The Cult
Slim Jim Phantom – The Stray Cats
Dave Wakeling – English Beat / General Public
Glenn Tilbrook – Squeeze
