His idea has saved the lives of thousands of soldiers.
Now, a new album and a concert is being planned in memory of Jimi Heselden.
He invented the Hesco Bastion – a collapsible blast barrier used extensively by British and US forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The invention made him a wealthy man, and he purchased the American company Segway Inc, but, just months later, died tragically riding his own segway too close to the edge of a cliff.
He left an estate of £340 million to his family.
Now with the help of music producer Eliot Kennedy, his daughter is honouring his memory for the Help for Heroes charity.
The concert Eliot and Jo are assembling will take place in Doncaster in November, beneath the wings of a Vulcan bomber.

It will raise funds for Hidden Wounds, Help for Heroes' support arm for those suffering from the psychological impacts of war.
Not only will it include a debut performance by Jo of her title track 'Hidden Wounds', but there will also be a guest appearance from none other than Gary Barlow.
