Looking back at the start of the Gibb Collective project this weekend and what came from that and ...what will we see more the coming month ?!
October will be a special Gibb Collective month, in cooperation with all members of Gibb Collective.
So stay tuned and enjoy!! There's more to come...
Gibb Family Honors Their Legacy With Bee Gees Tribute Album The rich musical legacy of the Bee Gees and their brother
Andy Gibb continues to entertain millions of fans across the globe, and today the next generation of
Gibbs announced a project honoring their music with new interpretations of classic songs.
Spearheaded by Maurice's daughter Samantha and producer Lazaro Rodriguez.
"We are very excited to share this collection of songs with everyone, especially long time fans of our fathers' music," says Samantha Gibb.
"This has been an amazing experience with our family working together to create something really special."
The BrandLaureate Legendary Award
In recognition of their success as a globally acclaimed band, The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF) recently awarded the last surviving member of the group,
Barry Gibb, with The BrandLaureate Legendary Award; and on behalf of his band The Bee Gees with The BrandLaureate Premier Award.
Marion: "Doing fan work for The Gibbs for almost 50 years I of course do receive countless mails for the family personally but also business like.
Sometimes I can handle it myself, sometimes I forward the mails to the Gibb team, often I get help from people assisting Barry and family.
Last May for instance I received a mail from Asia: Mr. Swee Ching. Lau of The BrandLaureate:
'The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF) would like to award Barry Gibb with The BrandLaureate Award. Please assist to provide us with Barry Gibb or his representative's email address for communication purposes.' "
Like always I got in touch with Miami Beach to get things arranged and.......
Result: Barry indeed recently received this Asian award for The Bee Gees!!'

Slow version Stayin'Alive - a missed chance on the anniversary edition
Marion: Many fans had hoped the special slow Stayin Alive version to be part of the new edition of Saturday Night Fever.
Many fans in general are waiting for much more of these special unreleased Gibb material to be released finally.
Unfortunately although first planned to get at least the slow S.A version on the De Luxe set.....let's say: due to some wrong communication,
Capitol records did not include it although Blue Weaver has a good version ready to use and has much more material which could be very interesting for the fans to finally hear and to have. I have been in touch with him about this matter and that fact that it seems that Capitol, after not finding the right tape between the Warner items, didn't get back to Blue for the good quality tape he has.
Blue: " I told Capitol I had a very good quality sounding track, better than some of the demos that went out.
What I sent them was a brief section in MP3 format as I didn't want to send anything that could be copied and put on the internet for any reason"
We, the fans, keep waiting for another opportunity and keep hoping that someday we will be able to hear and have these special Bee Gees tape recordings etc. after all".
Message to GSI from Peta Weber
' Hi I know fans had been concerned about the absence of my father's songs from digital platforms following the end of the deal with Warner earlier this year.
With apologies that negotiations have taken so long, Andy Gibb's catalogue is now with
Capitol Records and is once again available on all the usual digital platforms.
We also have some new and exciting plans in the pipeline and I'm excited about what the future holds for my father's music with the team at Capitol.'

GSI - BIRTHDAY AND ANNIVERSARY WISHES TODAY
For Barry and Linda Gibb: Congratulations!!
For Barry Gibb's 71st birthday, here's his pick for the best of all our interviews over the years. From a London hotel in 2009, read how
Barry foreshadowed his 2016 solo album by talking about his desire to live "in the now".
Barry also gives insights into the characters of his brothers, his friendships with people like Chris Martin, Michael Jackson and Jimmy Fallon,
how his feelings about the Odessa album have changed over the years, whether he was offended by the Barry Gibb Talk Show,
if his kids listen to his music and his thoughts on the Bee Gees underrated early-70s period.
BEE GEES BIOPIC 2017
Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb arrived in England in the 60s, shipped from Australia, with only one thought - success.
The brothers were certainly not disappointed as their substantial rise happened rapidly, guided by future iconic movie producer
Robert Stigwood, who was partner of the Beatles Brain Epstein. These young brothers toiled with success from extraordinary musical creations,
but young egos, huge money and overwhelming fame from the 70s and world hits like Saturday Night Fever took a toll on the brothers.
Barry and Robin, although able to make music magic in the studio, struggled to see eye to eye damaging their relationship behind the camera,
and while Maurice was a bridge between the two, he fell into his own spiral of self-destruction with alcohol.

Three questions to Samantha Gibb
From Ohio Magazine.com
Samantha Gibb saw the Bee Gees in concert for the first time at age 11, during the group's tour for its 1989 album"One."
"I was like wow ... whoa," recalls Gibb, who today lives in Centerburg. "It definitely made me realize they were a very strong entity. They were legends in what they did."
After living in California and Florida, Gibb, her husband and son relocated to the slower-paced life of central Ohio three years ago.

the organization of Symphonica and Barry's booking agency and we have to see whether they can come up with an agreement.
Only then plans can be made and preparations begin. For Symphonica In Rosso a long preparation time is required.

Update from Gibb Family!!
Letter to Marion/GSI
I received latest info this morning about the Gibb Family and the situation with regard to hurricane Irma.
'Hi Marion, The Gibb families did evacuate their homes once before but only travelled inland for 'Hurricane Andrew' however this was the first time they decided to leave Florida.
The electricity / power has now come back on in South Florida and the family are returning to Miami this weekend. Although there were trees down,
street flooding and everywhere was a total mess, none of the Gibb Family homes sustained any serious structural damage .
The whole evacuation process was extremely stressful and although they had an enjoyable time in Nashville under the circumstances,
it was very difficult for them to relax and not to worry about their friends who did not leave and whether they would have homes to return to after 'Hurricane Irma'.
The Gibb family would like to thank the overwhelming number of people who reached out with well wishes and messages of concern, it was very comforting during their ordeal.'
Thank you for this update and have a safe journey home, Marion xxx

New GSI message concerning
Like mentioned yesterday on GSI facebookgroup
Barry and family (including all pets) and Dick Ashby and his dog did leave Miami Beach like planned on Friday morning local time to go to Nashville.
They are all okay and they will stay up north untill the condition in Miami is good enough to go back.
GSI received countless questions about Yvonne and family and if they are safe too.
As you know Sam and family live in Ohio and Yvonne is at the moment in the UK (London).
Adam and family are in Boston, so all safe and okay, but worried of course about what is going to happen in Miami as this is the first time the
Gibb Family have had to evacuate their homes in Miami because of a hurricane.
We all keep fingers crossed,

ANDY GIBB IN MEMORY

GSI was asked to assist by spreading the word of this special idea to some other fangroups around the world and to all the Gibb fans.
GSI will sign a letter which goes to the City Of Miami Beach in name of all fans
We hope you will like the idea.
More information will follow as soon as available
Thank you Deborah for starting this initiative.

My Dear Lifelong Fans of our beloved Andy GIBB,
I decided to embark on this adventure because some years ago Andy GIBB touched my heart in a very special way.
Since then, I deeply feel the desire that the memory of this young artist, whose smile and talent are indelibly imprinted in the memory of innumerable fans, is honored in the most beautiful way.
The things that made Andy unique were out of the simple performance, which always excelled, and came straight to the people's heart because they had to do with the qualities that make a human being really special: I refer to respect, altruism, sincerity, good manners and, special note, the sense of humor.
Andy GIBB was all this and anyone who had the privilege of meeting him knows it perfectly. That's why I like to say that, if there was Andy, the world would be a pretty better place!
In March 2018 we celebrate 30 years since the premature death of Andy GIBB: as I've written, he will be always remembered, not only as a talented and charismatic performer, but as a beloved family member and a special friend who gave so much of himself to others, especially as an honorary member of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation in Miami.
Andy, born in England and raised in Australia, loved Miami and the ocean so much and fans of all over the world still miss him, not only for his string of multi-platinum albums,
for his two Grammy Award nominations and for his unforgettable Broadway debut, but, as Robin GIBB said,
"especially for his capacity to reach the hearts of the people, because it isn't just about the sound or the song, but the human connection".
HERE IS THE MOMENT THAT ANDY'S MEMORY NEEDS OUR HELP!
His virtuous lyrics of Everlasting Love, and Flowing Rivers are ageless.
We as the United Fans of Andy Gibb's memory want to show our "Everlasting Love" for Andy by declaring our desire to see his memory memoralized in his adopted city of Miami Beach, Florida.
Andy was always recognized as a Son of Miami, or should we say "the Sun of Miami".
His devoted love of the water and his love of yachtsmanship with the MOTOR YACHT MARIE, along with his Family of Brothers and parents and close friends,
were his foundation for his creativity and life long dreams.
Andy would be at home in Miami today had he not been called heavenly homeward.
So we're going to ask the City of Miami to celebrate Andy GIBBS great talent, generosity, kindness,
huge contribution by allowing the naming of a street and the affixing of a monument to be enjoyed by visitors from all over the world.
Every year so many people come to Miami to visit the places regularly frequented by Andy GIBB and that's why countless fans want,
with all their heart, that Miami, the city that Andy loved so deeply, devotes to him a road or that affords a monument to honor the memory of this extraordinary artist.
Let's remember that, already in March 1989, the Miami mayor unveiled "Andy Gibb Drive", but, after a very short time, maybe it was dropped due to a rezoning of the property and was never revisited.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for your thoughtful help.
Your support can make all the difference in our formal presentation and will be the sign of our Everlasting Love!

John Merchant is working with Andy Walter at the Abbey Road studios in London on an upcoming Bee Gees live reissue.
'The Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever Deluxe',
planned to be released in September of this year.
One day after Glastonbury:
Although everyone was tired right after the Glastonbury adventure, Barry and family were all elated at the response from fans and are still recovering from the excitment.
Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards
Today (June 30. 2017) Barry and Linda visited the event again at the
Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London.
Last year Barry received the award and this year Dame Shirley Bassey will be presented with the O2 Silver Clef Award and Phil Collins will receive the Icon Award.
The Nordoff Robins O2 Silver Clef Awards, which has been running for 42 years, has raised nearly £10 million to fund the Nordoff Robins charity, who provide music therapy for people of all ages.
Some parts of what Barry Gibb said while being interviewed at the Silver Clef Awards.
Barry wants to work with both Gallagher brothers. The Oasis duo are vocal fans of the Bee Gees legend - and Barry is already used to sibling rivalries.
He said at the Silver Clef awards: "I know about brothers. I would love to work with Noel, he's only down the street".
"I love him and love them together. I love Oasis". "And of course I would work for Liam, but you have to be asked."
In the meantime Bazza wants to return to his disco roots: "I want to make a really high energy album, a dance album."
"I'd like to work with Nile Rodgers, I think that would be a wonderful experience." Sounds like Good Times ahead.
Barry: 'Ed Sheeran; he has a lot of miles ahead of him, and you know Rita Ora and Ariana - she's gonna have a great future. 'I am a female singer fan. I am inclined towards female singers.'
When asked about reports that Adele would no longer be touring he said it was unlikely Adele would ever turn her back on music.
'I didn't know that Adele wasn't going to be touring anymore but she's given us some wonderful records and I suspect she will continue to do that.'
Barry also spoke of his 'pinch me' moment playing Glastonbury festival and revealed how he coped on stage without his brothers Robin and Maurice. 'Always the same,' he explained.
'I always feel like they're there and how else can you live, you've got to keep moving and I do the songs, but I only sing the songs that I sang, I never encroach on Robin's.'

Please Don't Turn Out the Lights by The Gibb Collective
REVIEW: Particularly stunning is the title track, "Please Don't Turn Out the Lights," which features the eldest of each of the brothers' kids working together in perfect harmony.
Spencer Gibb's take on "Don't Fall in Love With Me," first released by the Bee Gees in 1981, is another standout. His is a folk-inspired interpretation, but doesn't deviate too far from the foundation of the original version.
"In the Morning," covered by Samantha and Adam Gibb and Peta Gibb's "Fool For a Night" are ambitious covers of great originals.
"In the Morning" emphasizes the songwriting by shifting into a minimalist electronica melody. Peta turns Andy Gibb's campy 1978 single into a slinky, almost haunting club track.
Both of the covers carry the classic tunes into modernity without distracting from what made the songs so wonderful in the first place. http://thecelebritycafe.com

Gibb Children honour The Gibb Legacy with special album
The plan: to honor their Legacy With a Bee Gees Tribute Album.
The children of all four Brothers Gibb!! will record an album of classic songs for release in Spring 2017!!
The rich musical legacy of the Bee Gees and their brother Andy Gibb continues to entertain millions of fans across the globe,
and today the next generation of Gibbs announced a project honoring their music with new interpretations of classic songs.
Spearheaded by Maurice's daughter Samantha and producer Lazaro Rodriguez,
the project features contributions from ten different members of the family including children of all four brothers - Maurice, Robin, Andy, and Barry,
who released his third solo album this year. Sparked by Samantha and Lazaro creating one Bee Gees cover on their own,
and long awaiting the right time to do a tribute, they realized the musical potential here and that it was time to do something more.
Samantha reached out to her siblings and cousins and very quickly they all agreed to take part. "Everyone wanted to be involved. We are all true fans of their [Bee Gees] music and there is a connection for us, family," says Samantha. Each family member,
some of whom are working on albums of their own, were left to their own devices to create unique and personal versions of songs from the brothers' amazing catalog of music.
This labor of love brings a fresh flavor to the music and showcases the sheer talent across this incredible family. One track, in particular,
will send chills down your spine as you hear four children harmonizing together, reminiscent of the sound that brought their fathers to prominence decades before.
"We are very excited to share this collection of songs with everyone, especially long time fans of our fathers' music," says Samantha Gibb.
"This has been an amazing experience with the whole family working together to create something really special."
More details to come soon including track listings and full credits. The release date of this Bee Gees Tribute Album:
probably later in 2017. We will share more information when it becomes available!
