Comment: I just happened onto this site, and was pleased to see all the interesting and important memories of Warren documented for all who hadn't know him, and for those of us that had. Warren's memory comes up quite often in the music circles of Los Angeles and I for one will never forget the very first time I heard Warren sing. A rehearsal at Foster's house in 1990? for an upcoming performance w/ the Toronto Symphony. Out of nowhere came this magical voice singing "Through the Fire". It was Warren of course, using his amazing vocal gift, blowing everyone away, but with the utmost modesty. I still miss him very much. A great and truly uniquely gifted person.

Comment: I knew Warren through Brian Price and Bill Cantos, and was always amazed by him. My biggest memory about him is a little odd. When my mother remarried, I booked a band with all my musical buddies, and Warren was gracious enough to join us. I just remember watching how the room stopped in the middle of one particular ballad, and even though it was a celebration for a new couple, everyone just stopped dancing and stood and watched him - spellbound. I am proud to have known him!

Comment: I had the good fortune to perform with Warren over an eight year period with the David Foster Band, as well as a number of TV shows with him here in Canada. He was an amazing voice in a courageous body. I remember one show where the big star was Michael Bolton, and poor Warren, not being aware of his own greatness, had to really struggle to get out on stage and sing. He finally did and of course we were all blown away. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Comment: I have so many great memories of Warren, working with him on numerous
David Foster events '87-'95. Such a gentle man, wonderous talent. Favorite
moments were Warren & Celine Dion in duet... it just does not get any better
than that! It was an honor to have known him, and performed with him.
He is truly missed by his friends here in Vancouver & Victoria, B.C...

Comment: Thank you for this beautiful site.
When I heard him sing at David Foster's live concert
held at Budokan in '94, I found the meaning of genius.
The voice of his velvet throat still echoes in my ears.
The rumour says that his first solo album was
completed... It must be relased!!

As the biggest fan of Warren, I'm so happy for this site.
Yes, our Warren was a great human being.
I had the luck to meet Warren and a young guy in LA, february 97 (he did work together with Warren in some kind of project, but I dont remember his name)
I was travelling around the world and had stopped in USA for a couple of weeks.
I saw in the newspaper that Warren was going to play in a hotel so I went there...
After the gig I entered the stage and presented myself, a bit nervous of course.
I mean, there I was standing in front of MY Good... But soon I found out that there was noting to be afraid of. Warren made me noting but calm. We talked about his friend Bill, David, Jay for a while....and we had such a god time so Warren asked me to take a seat in the hotel bar. And so the three of us did. After about an our in the bar ( time 00.30, early next day) I had to go back home to" Q" street. Before I went, Warren asked me for my adress and phone number in Sweden.
I told him that I should be back in Sweden in november again. Warren asked the kindest, if it was OK if he´d call me then, cause he said he´d always wanted to visit my country.
He also wanted me to buy a certain record for him, that he had not been able to buy himself. He said that if he visited David's mother or who ever it was in Norway, he could drop by in Sweden as well. I told him he was welcome at any time.
I will always remeber this night and how greatful Warren was for my interest in what he had done and in his person. I told him that his vocals in "Roxanne" was one of my favourites, he said. - Ohh did you like that one... yee, I think that´s a neet song aswell.
And then he sang half the song for me acapella... and so he did with every song I said I liked........
My best love to Warren, his friends and relatives.
Often when I write songs or when I´m up to do vocals in the studio and nothing works, I remeber the moment with Warren. How great he sang that night, in the hotel lobby bar - 97.
IT WORKS, everytime........

Comment: Been a big fan of Warren's since hearing his demo version of "Voices That Care". My hobby had been hunting down his solo work on the various albums he contributed to while searching for his solo album. It's my dream that he will finally get an album of his work released someday. Nobody deserves it more. The world should know about who this man was and his incredible instrument. I feel so lucky to have seen Warren perform live at a club a few years ago. Seeing him sing as brilliantly live as I'd heard on record cemented my admiration for his talent.

Comment: I got to know Warren pretty well while working as a guitar tech on the David Foster Super Producers Tour in Japan. Prior to that I had only known Warren as a "fan". I remember seeing him at the Lowe's in Santa Monica where he completed a set (with only piano accompaniment) which included "Brick House", "Blackbird" and "America, The Beautiful". I looked around to see that even the most hardcore "party-er" in the bar had stopped and was spell bound by his performance. There were alot of tears in the room based on the sheer emotion of his performance. There will never be another singer or more importantly, person, like Warren Wiebe. I am so glad to have heard him and cherish the fact that I knew him as a friend. I will send in some stories as time permits. Thanks for this wonderful tribute and site to one of the warmest human beings I have ever known. Best regards, Bill Ricketts

Comment: I was called today by Warren's nephew, Michael, to take a look at your web site. It is so beautiful. I am always amazed how many people have been fortunate enough to have heard, seen, meet or know Warren. He has been in our family's life since 1965 when we were in Jr. High together. His professional life was not ususally the topic of our conversation. It is Warren as a friend who became my brother that I carry in my heart. By having the opportunity to read, look and hear this website has been a wonderful gift to someone who misses him everyday. He is with my sister and Mom, who he called Mom, and with his Mom. He loved these people more than I could ever express. They are now the lucky ones though because Warren is singing with the angels and they have front row seats. Thank you for loving Warren.

Comment: Great honorable page to the most fragile, gentle, loving man that every walked the face of
this earth. Warren Wiebe had talent even the most popular entertainers would envy.
If you've never heard him sing, you're missing out on the most beautiful voice ant one human
being could have. The live performances Warren did will live with me forever.
If music ever made perfect sense to me, it was when warren painted it with ease.
Besides all the musical talent, warren was a little boy with the touch of an infant.
The thing I loved about Warren the most was he'd be working with someone like Celine,
David Foster or Seal just to name a few, and then the next night warren would be driving
back to San Diego to do a wedding or casual. Warren loved music and it didn't matter who it
was with or the status of the performers he was working with. Sometimes the bigger a
musician gets, the less he wants to work with the little guys. Not in Warrens case!
I feel blessed to have known you.
Love You, Darin Scheff

Comment: I can see Warren standing before God saying "I think I can do it better."
God will reply "Warren that was great!"
I've had the opportunity to work with some tremendous talent in my life. The "gifts" others say we have, have come from years of practice. Warren was the only person I have ever met that had what I consider a truly God given gift. It is so humbling to know that even with decades of practice and experience I will never have on my best day what had. God blessed the world with Warren's voice. I hope there are guitars in Heaven so we can do it again.
