Ciao Italia…

A video I made to help promote and raise money for the Italian Red Cross. This was a little difficult as we all reside in different parts of the world but with the use of the internet, technology and patience I managed to get this together…Thanks to all involved including Savvas and Francesco…


Octopus TV Interviews

We Are One

 

It was 21st May 2012 when I heard that Robin had died the day before. For days after that the realisation that there was now only one brother left haunted me.

After Maurice died I realised that I would never be able to fulfil my dream of ever playing again with the brothers but I did hope that there was a possibility of performing with Robin and Barry but again my dream was shattered.

I heard a quote not sure where it came from but instantly it made the situation clear ‘We are one’.

I am not a lyricist or a singer, I have worked with so many greats I didn’t need to be and writing words never came naturally in fact picking up a pen and paper was difficult but I wrote down…

I’m standing on this stage alone,

Another spirit not yet flown,

But when I look around I see,

All my brothers standing next to me,

and singing harmony,

and when that final song is sung,

now We Are One…

I then sat at my piano and came up with this melody.

I tried writing other words but nothing touched me as much as that final verse that I had written and I realised there was really only one person who could finish it and sing it…

I always imagined this would be an orchestral track maybe with some piano hopefully one day it will be completed. I am never happy with my performances as I really wish there was ‘someone’ there to sing it for you.

I believe now more than ever especially with what’s happening around the world we need to stand together as one…

PS. I performed a medley of songs on our wonderful Worpswede Musichall Bosendorfer for friends and family for my 70th birthday and I keep looking around in surprise as all my grandchildren joined me onstage and this was the final very emotional song…

          


Music Room Chiswick ’86

Not a great quality picture. Anyone that visited would remember Chico under the console.


Alan Haven, Viscount, ARP & Me

In 1972 I bought a Viscount Organ after meeting Alan Haven. He had his Viscount organ keyboard controlling the ARP 2600 it and he were amazing. I used it on Strawbs ‘Bursting At The Seams’ album and live gigs. It can really be heard on the B side of ‘Lay Down’ originally titled “Ziggy Barlust and the Whales from Uranus’ but the record company thought it better to change the title we then suggested ‘Backside’ but they called it ‘B Side’.
The Viscount Leslie style speaker was unique in as much as the whole speaker revolved to create the slow/fast effect…


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.
