“My name is Marc and I play Guitar and vocals for BC Sweet as well as managing the day to day affairs of the band. I’m a lucky guy. Many have said it, many more have thought it and I never forget it for one single day.
I am part of a fantastic band that rocks crowds across Europe. If someone had shown me a video of the BC Sweet of today compared to a few years ago, I would never have believed it. That statement is in NO WAY disrespectful to the wonderful people I have worked with in the band since I joined in 2000. It’s simply that today I have the best of all worlds, the best musicians as well as a wonderful chemistry on stage that is allowing the show to evolve and grow in a way I could never have hoped for.
I always wanted a band that the great Brian Connolly himself would have been proud of. I think, finally, I have that. BC Sweet is a solid and exciting unit performing the greatest hits of Sweet, keeping the songs alive for generations to come.
A BC Sweet show of today features all the hits of Sweet from the early bubblegum hits right through to the later more AOR type songs such as “Love Is Like Oxygen”. To all of you who spend your hard earned money travelling hundreds of miles sometimes, to come to our shows, or taking time to drop us emails and letters, we never take it for granted. Thanks for supporting BC Sweet, we love ya loads.”

Pete Phipps is a founder member of The Glitter Band who had a string of hits in their own right through the 70s. The pounding drum intro to Rock and Roll Part 2 can still be heard in sports stadia all over the world every single weekend. Such is the power and legend of the “Glitter” sound.
During the 80s Pete worked with a string of amazing artists including The Eurythmics, Genesis’ Mike Rutherford and XTC.
Away from BC Sweet Pete not only teaches drums to the drummers of tomorrow but is one of the UK’s leading and most respected Tai-Chi instructors.
Of course, I have started with the lead singer/bassist of the band, Sweet Kev,
in one of his tyical crazy outfits when he is on stage with BC SWEET
Now, I will do again some outrageous hoem advertising, but if you are not far way from a place where they have a gig, go and listen to them,
they are simply fantastic!
and I must say that it is one of my favourite series all time, perhaps even THE favourite.
I love the humour in it, and more than anything I love the friendship between the two male main characters, “Alan Shore” and “Denny Crane”.
As the series was finished, it was really sad for me, as if I was losing some friends of mine…
So, the best way to get them back now is to spend some time with them, making their portraits. I wanted to catch them both in this wonderful moment they were spending on their balcony, smoking a cigar, at the end of each episode, and sharing wise thoughts about themselves and the world. I started with Alan, Denny will follow soon.
My God, how I miss these
quiet moments on their balcony!
