A Rockhampton musician has released a charity song to raise money for the NHS.

Kevin Hackett and his band Roxy Magic, a Roxy Music tribute act, have recorded Let's Stick Together - a song which combines some lyrics from Canned Heat’s Let’s Work Together along with a message of support for the NHS.

The song was recorded to raise money for NHS Charities Together, with band members recording their parts separately before they were mixed together.

Kevin first started playing in bands in the 1970s, when fans started to comment on his resemblance to Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry, before getting back into music after 22 years in the army.

A veteran of both the Falklands and Gulf Wars, Kevin was inspired by Captain Tom Moore who recently raised more than £30million by walking laps of his garden.

"I wanted to keep the military connection," Kevin said.

"I suffer from PTSD so I've had good reason to call upon the NHS in the past.

"I wanted to do something for the NHS, it means a lot to me.

"I wear my PTSD like a badge of honour. The band is a form of musical therapy.

"Everybody has got their own story in the band. We all agreed it would be a good thing to do."

Last year Roxy Magic raised more than £2,0000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after playing a charity gig at Thornbury's Armstrong Hall.
