A special gig for charity Rock 2 Recovery, whose mission is to save and change the lives of veterans and their families affected by stress, is being held in the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on 2 November.

The night is being organised by Edinburgh Napier University and the line up includes Royal Navy veteran Richard Kerr who along with Claire Bigger from the University joined Mark McKenzie on BFBS Scotland Breakfast.

When 24-year-old Royal Marine Chris Madison was killed in action in 2003 during fighting in Basra in Iraq, his most treasured guitar was gifted to his friend Richard Kerr.

Richard was serving in the Royal Navy when he met Chris, they became friends and played in the same band together. Richard will be playing the special guitar at the Rock 2 Recovery gig in Edinburgh.
