Would You Spend 8 hours here?

Production companies book venues for their artists to play in but never consider what conditions are like for them backstage. Granted we all get paid but would they work from an office like this?
And it was stinking...

And it was stinking...Oh and only 1 toilet, 2 cubicles shared male & female with very little between for about 30 people...

Last night in Studio Nord, Bremen, I and many friends had a great time celebrating the 60th birthday of Stefan Stoppok. As could be expected many friends are musicians so there was no shortage of great music. Studio Nord Bremen

Amen Corner 1967

This year it is even more spectacular than the past as we now have, along with a new cast of actors, dancers and storyline, Dennis Bryon, original drummer from the Bee Gees, one of my oldest friends, he's actually younger than me but you know what I mean. He was also in Amen Corner and my very first band in Cardiff, Brother John and the Witnesses. We, as always, aim to continue the popularity of the Bee Gees and their music and hope that the legend continues to gain more fans...

Bluebottle

My name 'Blue' came from a cartoon character in the famous "Goon Show" the character was payed by Peter Sellers and was named 'Bluebottle'.  See this site for more details http://www.thegoonshow.net/. It was originally a radio show but in the early sixties the 'TeleGoons' were created. Luckily for me people shortened it to just Blue. The name was given to me by Gary Cooper (real name Edward) Charlotte Church's grandfather. He played sax with a local Cardiff group called 'The Sect Maniacs" and he thought I looked like the character. Obviously as you can see there is absolutely no resemblance but thank you Gary as the name stuck and was good for my career as people always remembered it. There was a song called 'Bluebottle Blues' I will get the original track and post here sometime.

The original Bluebottle hand puppet. Don't know why they put a skirt on me but I suppose you wouldn't be able to get your hand up my trousers.

I've got those "When I say I trust you I don't want to be drownded 'cause I do not like those kind of game" Blues. I don't like naughty tricks that go sploo gee splat (They say harm can come to a young lad like that) And I do not like explosions that blow me back for Christmas Out of my el-seaside bel-bottom shoes I don't like being wetted by nasty April showers And I do not like being nutted by Eifel and Blackpool towers So I do not want to be drowned, nutted, deaded, hitted, splatted pledded! I don't like that kind of type blues -- I don't like that I've got them Bluebottle Blues.
Well now the truth is finally out so all enjoy......

A little blue in your tea cupI  created this blog especially for iPad and iPhone viewing. You can view sub-menus by just touching the main menu item and if there is a sub-menu it will drop down. You have a viewing choice 'Standard | Mobile' at the foot of all pages. The iPhone defaults to the Mobile view. I will continue with my Big Blog saturdaynightweaver.com and will eventually update my main site blueweaver.com
