About

Welcome – Hola – Willkommen


I’ve tried writing a book about my life but didn’t have the patience, this is more fun so I’ll gradually keep adding recollections of my life events. Any help with stories from you would be appreciated.

1987 Frankfurt Motor Show

The first 9 cover tracks on my MP3 Player were created for Volkswagen’s presentation at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show.
We held auditions at Skyline Studios Dusseldorf as each singer also had to dance and each had to have an individual look and ethnic background if possible.

I was first tested to see if I was up for the job with ‘Good Vibrations’ I created a Logic backtrack and then got musicians into Townhouse Studios for the recording.
All the voices were created by Anthony Rivers, Tony Rivers and I think John Perry or maybe the Swetenhams? (I will check this but I know it was a Grapefruit). I got the gig…

The following tracks apart from Jimmy James were writing demos… Sorry the quality is not so good they are all MP3 and long tracks like Prayer-Great Gig in the Sky are only 192khz

I created the Great Gig In The Sky Track for anyone wishing to attempt the vocal part. The Intro is my own I had the idea of putting the Lords Prayer over it but am still waiting for a sign from above…


Facebook & Blue Weaver (now resolved)

Facebook has blocked my Blue Weaver account. They say I have to supply proof that my name is actually Blue Weaver and supply a copy of passport or ID. All they have to do is Google me to find out why I am Blue Weaver. I think I now have contact with a real person, Jennifer so hopefully this absolutely stupid situation will be resolved but I ask all friends who read this to please post on Facebook the fact that this is the name that all know me by….Thank you (hopefully always) Blue...

Main Course 1975

August 9, 1975 – 44 Years Ago Today: The Bee Gees began a two-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with their single, “Jive Talkin’.” This was the leadoff single from their album, “Main Course,” and proved to be a comeback for the trio of brothers who hadn’t scored a Top 40 single in three years. “Main Course,” was also the first album to feature keyboardist Blue Weaver. The album was a smash hit producing three hit singles. Following “Jive Talkin’,” the group released “Nights On Broadway,” which was also a Top Ten hit peaking at No. 7 and the third single release, “Fanny (Be Tender With My Love),” peaked at No. 12. They followed this album up with “Children Of The World,” which produced the No. 1 smash hit, “You Should Be Dancing,” the No. 3 single, “Love So Right” and “Boogie Child” which peaked at No. 12. Their live album, “Here At Last…Bee Gees…Live” produced the Top 30 live recording, “Edge Of The Universe,” then, of course, the soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever,” was released, and the rest is solid gold (and Platinum) history. The Bee Gees were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, they were the recipients of the Grammy Legend Award in 2003 and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.

Reset production ‘Massachusetts 2020’

I have disagreed with the production company Reset Production for many years now for portraying the Italian Bee Gee’s show ‘Massachusetts’ as ‘Das Bee Gee’s Musical’ or ‘the Bee Gees Musical’. A musical it is not and certainly not ‘THE’ Bee Gees musical. It is however a concert with a difference. I am very sad to say that I will not be participating in any future shows. The show, as I am sure you would agree, is worth seeing and I am sure you will continue to enjoy them in the coming years but please do not expect a ‘musical’ or me to be a part of the 2020 shows. Thank you and hope to see you all again sometime, somewhere in the future…Blue


Musik Laden

After Beat Club Michael (Mike) Leckebusch created Musik Laden in a studio underneath his house near Bremen. It was an amazing task and when watching repeats of this program and visiting the studio you would not believe it was possible (that is unless you performed on the Old Grey Whistle Test). I was lucky enough to do both and was invited again back to the old Musik Laden studios for an impromptu gig last Friday evening. It is amazing everything is still there and working and the sound studio with ASP board is available for hire. I remember so much of this equipment and how fascinated I was each time I had to record and perform on shows like this and then always want to checkout the video side of things.

 

 

 


Thank you Dr. Siegfried Zaft for saving all and now you are able take us all back to our youth…
