So you are Santa bringing Aquaman presents? Having your own horn section is a nice touch. :wink:

Amazingly, the call for a Be Bop Deluxe reformation continues on Facebook, on and on and on, ad nauseam...

I suppose I should be flattered but it's frankly irritating. I've just now had to explain, for the umpteenth time, that Charlie is no longer alive, that Andy and Simon have no interest in reforming the band, and that at 70 years old, I'm struggling with various health issues and may possibly never perform live again. (Which doesn't alter the fact that I'm not remotely interested in a Be Bop Deluxe reunion in the first place.)

Yet, despite my constant posting on FB to bring people up to speed, there are still many people who seem to believe that it's 1976 again and everything can be the same as it once was. One Be Bop fan seemed to completely ignore my explanation and said something along the lines of, "I understand what you're saying but many bands do reform so why can't you?" Which, after my detailed breakdown of why I can't do such a thing, seems an absolutely absurd question for him to ask. Jeez, get real folks, be here and now and investigate what music I might have to offer you today. It;'s 2019 for God's sake! :wink: :)


Aw yes the internet... where you only talk to Ids. :lol: :roll:
