‘Wat Weet Je Van Blue Blood?!’

Sorry to our international friends; this song is in Dutch! We would like to thank Dio, Reverse, Adje, Sef & Jayh for using the lyric: ‘Wat weet je van Blue Blood?!’  (1:22) in their new song called ‘Wat weet je nou’.

We think it is pretty cool so: Thank You !

Shane Shu features friends of Blue Blood in his video

Shane Shu is a music artist, photographer, and peripheral visionary. He came to Holland when he was 18. Describing his style of music in a few words is impossible. We’ll let him try, shall we? Shane: ‘The sound and writing is unlike any other Dutch artist. A well-written and credible pop album with intelligent arrangements.’

The new Shane Shu single is called ‘Can You Help Me’ and has an amazing video! The story of the video is also the story of the song: with a lot of social media ‘friends’ one can still feel lonely and in need of help from real friends. ‘Can You Help Me’ is the second single of the forthcoming album ‘Let’s Burn This Town’ (release October 8th, 2010). The video feautures a lot of our Blue Blood friends like Covergirl Sunny, Hanna Verboom & Willa Stoutenbeek (amongs many others).

(Rock) Family & Friends

At Blue Blood we’re all about Family and Friends… We actually aim to treat all of our Friends as if they were Family. We feel a Family connection is something special which should be cherished.
So when we came across this beautiful father and daughter portrait in Dutch magazine Jantje our hearts and eyes lighted up.
One of Holland’s greatest rock heroes and a dear friend of ours Barry Hay (front man of the Golden Earring) and his daughter Gina.
Gina is dressed in the Blue Blood pyjama jacket and Barry is wearing a pair of Blue Blood jeans in this great captured moment.
