Charlotte Church’s grandfather Gary played sax in a local early 60’s Cardiff band called ‘The Sect Maniacs’ and he nicknamed me Blue after Bluebottle, Peter Sellers character in the Cult 50’s/60’s ‘Goon Show’.

A piano piece I’d written before I joined the Bee Gees. One night I was playing this in the studio when Barry started singing along and before I’d finished had lyrics originally called “The Restless Years” but later changed, I wish that tile had stayed as it gets confused with “The Way We Were” especially as Gladys sang it also.
I still get a lump in my throat when I hear this and can’t believe such great singers want to sing my songs.
