There’s no end to the possibilities when you match certain musicians
together for a one-off concert. Or, in this case, A Concert By
The Lake.  While the lake itself remains an enigma, there’s little mystery behind
the members of the impromptu Band du Lac, the musical muscle who
performed at  the historic Wintershall Estate in Surrey, England, to benefit HASTE
(Heart  and Stroke Trust Endeavour), which aims to facilitate the prevention,
early detection and treatment of heart disease and stroke. Filmed in 2006,
this two-hour event featuring Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Queen’s Roger Taylor,
Genesis guitarist Michael Rutherford, the Drifters and Procol Harum’s Gary
Brooker, is now available exclusively on Blu-ray disc.

A cavalcade of guest stars follow. Queen drummer Roger Taylor grabs the
mic and nails a new one, “Say It’s Not True,” before breezily
sailing through comfy arrangements of post-70s Queen hits, “These Are
The Days Of Our Lives” and “I Want To Break Free.”
