Hoping all is well...

13 comments

Haven't heard from Bill on the Journal for quite sometime. Hoping all is improving with the transition from the Mackie platform to Cubase.

 

Fingers crossed that all is as well as can be health wise.

 

These two recent releases are stellar. Can't stop playing them. Super excited about whatever is next.

Yes, I've been wondering for a few days why we haven't seen anything of Bill on the forum for quite some time, no input at all...I had a funny feeling that all wasn't well, but I so hope that is not the case and that maybe he is tied up with the studio transition or other artistic related ventures, even jobs around the house and general property maintenance can take up an inordinate amount of time, especially as we get that bit older.

 

So, as Lee says, hope all is well Bill, and I too am enjoying your latest releases very much indeed!

I concur!

 

I hope all is well in Dreamshire …….

It is worrying though, all it would take is a " hello, all is well" to alleviate our fears. Maybe he's just forgotten his journal password.

Coming up on seven weeks without a word. :/

 

Personally I’m not registered with and don’t use Facebook but I’d be grateful if someone who is one of Bill’s Facebook ‘friends’ can confirm whether he’s also been absent from there as well as Dreamsville for many weeks now?

 

I don’t want to feel a bit of a chump getting concerned about not hearing anything from Bill here at Dreamsville only to find out he’s communicating with fellow Nelsonians elsewhere on the internet.

Yes, Bill is active on Facebook. No need to worry.

😎

Could you remind him that we are here, please, and tell him that the girl in the Galaxy dress says "Hi!"? :)

 

Many thanks for confirming Westdeep.

 

I must confess to being both relieved and sad. Relieved for obvious reasons but also a bit sad it was necessary to ask the question - after around 6-7 weeks of wondering why we’ve had no updates here at Dreamsville.

 

But pleased I checked now and the main thing is that Bill is okay & out there working on future sonic delights for us. I’m registered here (as well as with Burning Shed) and get the email updates regarding new releases, downloads etc. so guess I’ll just have to wait for them, rather than checking in here for regular journal updates from Bill as to what’s going on in his life.

I have a Facebook account, but have seldom used it, so I may be doing something wrong, but it appears to me that Bill hasn't posted on Facebook since June 4. Am I completely mistaken?

There seem to be a few Bill Nelson Facebook accounts, so I may be looking at the wrong one.

 

Bill has every right to his privacy, but it is a little unnerving, since we've gotten used to hearing from him on an almost daily basis. Along with everyone else, I just hope all is well.

Bill posted this on Friday...hope this is OK with Bill to repost here...

Bill Nelson Incredibly busy with preparations for the November 9th live event. Recording some new backing tracks, creating videos to show behind the album launch playback, decorating a guitar for a charity auction, also making several pieces of artwork for the merch stall. Have yet to choose which numbers to perform, sort out which guitars go with each number, write out set lists, prepare listening notes for the 'Old Haunts' album playback and start to drag downstairs all the various flight cases which contain the equipment I need for the live performance element of the event. It's full-on intensity at the moment and will stay that way until the 9th (which is only a few short weeks away.) So, no time for anything else. It's panic time!

Thanks for that, Westdeep. I thought he was probably busy with the album launch event, but it's nice to have that verified. I'm not usually one to panic, but I was a little concerned.

I wish I could attend the event. I'll definitely buy the CD once it's available.

Until then, I'll continue to enjoy the latest two CD's, which I've had on constant rotation since their release.

Glad to hear that Bill has been absent due to preparations for the upcoming launch and not health issues as I had feared. I guess that we will find out in a few weeks what he has been up to 😊

As a lifelong fan of Bill Nelson it was an honour to be invited to the Old Haunts Event to represent our daughter`s charity Sara`s Hope Foundation A sincere thank you to Bill for his loyal support and having Bill as a Patron of Sara`s charity means so much to me and my family .Through Bill's music I have met so many amazing people who we consider family . Ian Haydock, Eddie McSheffrey,Duncan Noons, Paul Gilby,Jon Wallinger,Martin Bostock, Caroline and Colin Hunter are such a great team and a lovely bunch of warm hearted people who always organise a wonderful event ..right from the Nelsonica`s to the recent event. All of friends really are good people and it was fab seeing old and new faces .I must say a big thank you to a great guy Mike Robinson for donating the magnificent guitar which Bill kindly personalised with his unique style of artwork. Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for the charity prize draw and congratulations to the worthy winner.Another special guy who is a loyal supporter of Sara`s charity Paul Cosgrove presented us with a cheque for 322.50 from his work and our lovely friend from Ireland made a cash donation - Thank you Eugene and Noleen ! In total the charity raised an amazing 1679.50 GBP... We were over the moon but not surprised as Bill and his Nelsonian family have always been very generous to our daughters charity .
