First Whistle Test performance by the PSB’s see also the ‘Opportunities’ clip and you’ll see the 2 Fairlights we also used to program the tracks but appart from that all was live. I’d forgotten what a really great sound we created that night.

Just went to see this new ‘Documottary’ at the National Film Festival in London, great work by all. Chris Hall and Mike Kerry present the story with the passion and affection of genuine fans….Makes me realise I played a small part in one of the worlds greatest rock bands. See it if you can…

A really good night! myself and Terry Bishop played a selection of our favourite songs for all our friends and neighbours in Canillas.
Thanks also to Mark Shurey (Pimientito) for playing some amazing classical and flamenco guitar. See you all next year when we hope to give a concert each month through the spring and summer and shall be inviting guest musicians and singers for each event.

I recently had a bad time emotionally and aired my views on Facebook and I now have to thank all the Bee Gees fans past and present for their wonderful show of support.
Below are just a few of the wonderful comments I received.
I have read all the comments posted under the “Fanny” link, and I am a HUGE and have been a forever Bee Gee Fan. I agree with all the comments the fans have made, without you , and the others, the music would not have had the “CHEMISTRY” it does. YOU all were and still are part of what made the Brother’s GIBB who they are. Yes, they were the front 3 with the star quality and voices, but, they needed the music to make it happen, and that’s the contribution you all did make, and don’t ever forget that. Rosie was right, we true fans know the history, and all of you, and you are thought of with great fondness for all you contributed. I am honored that you accepted me on FB as a “friend” and have never met me. I just know that you should be proud of all you did and the talent that you have. Sue speaks very highly of you , along with Madlyn Gould and Heidi Bookout, close friends of mine, Madlyn and Sue live in England, Heidi lives in Washington State, and they all have commented on your talent and what your contributions on the albums and live performances were. Carry the good times with you, and I do hope you find the peace you envy in Alan. You do deserve it. Do not ever forget the talent that you have been blessed with, your musical, and writing. I can barely put a sentence together let alone sit and try to put a song together. I have always been in “aww” of people that have the talent that you do. God Speed and take care.
A long loving fan

“Hey Blue! The musicians in a band never get the credit they deserve. Neil diamond has an amazing band and many with him for years, but they never get the credit due them. Bon Jovi has 4 main members but there’s always more when they play….no credit given. George Strait has an awesome back up band, the Ace in the Hole band, but couldn’t tell you who they are. Believe me, as a very long time fan of the Bee Gees, we do know who you guys are-that’s why we have all friended you all on Facebook (thank you for that) and it’s why we feel the pain when a family member is lost. You, Alan and Dennis were and are very special in our hearts and always will be! Oh to be able to go back in time and see all of you, which I never had the chance to do!”

“Hi Blue, as a life long Gibb Bro’s fan, I just want you to know and of course Alan, Denis & everyone else who contributed over the years,how important YOU ALL were & STILL ARE to fans everywhere. They were lucky to have such a brilliant band with them.It was a dream come true to meet you in Manchester’03 not just becoz of the BG thing, but to meet such a talented musician & good bloke !!!! I know alot of people who feel the same XXX”

Quote from Chris Lowe during an interview with Johnny Marr
“CL: I’d like to have been in the Bee Gees when they were doing Saturday Night Fever in Miami. Blue Weaver, who we worked with – he used to detonate the pyrotechnics on Tragedy. I wouldn’t have minded doing that.”
