Robin John's podcast chat of December 26.
Robin John Gibb chats with Ricardo Calderon and friends of the Bee Gees group Mexico for their "Saturday Night Stories" podcast, like we earlier mentioned.
The podcast incudes a new online version of 'Holiday', first performed by RJ Gibb, The Egiziano brothers (Walter, Davide, Pasquale) and music by Blue Weaver.
You can see the podcast, follow the chat and watch and listen to the new version of Holiday on our facebookgroup: link below.
Marion: "Unfortunately Blue fell ill recently but happy to say, working on the video collaboration of Holiday could be finished in time after all.
Blue played the music but couldn't be there on camera for the video and couldn't do the editing work. Thanks to the artists for this lovely new Holiday version.
Special thanks for all the hard work done also by the technical engineer in Italy: Francesco Spadaccino and the work of RJ with his technical man:
Savvas Iosifidis, due to Covid still staying in Athens.... to get the editing ready in time and working on it even on Christmas Eve!! And so being able to offer the video in time, although Blue had fallen ill.
Very special thanks by GSI to all the artists and engineers who made this possible, all for free.!
Hopefully next time we'll see Blue again on camera with all the others, get well soon!
Marion / GSI."

"How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" - The documentary is finally there
Marion:"Wow, how I enjoyed the new docu!!!
It's a real treasure for me.
It brings me back to times and places a short while ago.... and a long ago.
However it always had to do with The Bee Gees as that has been part of my life and still is.
That family, their music...... brought me laughs and tears.
I'm just so proud to have known them and still be able to do the fanwork for them and stay in touch although mostly from a long distance.
My love for them is strong.
The documentary took me back down memory lane but like in all documentaries and live stories some parts are missing or maybe mentioned too short.
"How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" sure is an amazing piece of work and a must for each Gibb Music lover to watch and to have.
Barry goes on, the Bee Gees music stays alive and everyone will help to celebrate The Gibb Music for future years to come., I certainly will.
Love you Bee Gees, Love you Gibb Family,"

Hollywood's Fort Knox is Iron Mountain. Its latest restored treasure: Bee Gees footage for "How Can You Mend A broken Heart".
Marion: - I remember well the start of the planning for the new Bee Gees Documentary.
I had heard about the plans and I was told that the production team would contact me as soon as they started working on the new project.
And they did, I had quite some correspondence with Aly of the producing team of White Horse about this docu.
Read more about all the old stuff used for this documentary and how Iron Mountain Entertainment Services became more than helpful here.
Like Aly Parker mentioned:
"A lot of the stuff had been sitting in pallets for decades and no one had really touched it. I've worked with other archive houses, and they're all great. But Iron Mountain probably has the most capabilities.
If you've got something weird, you take it to them."-

Here again some parts of John's new mail to me:
"Glad to hear that you're enjoying the first single. It's a good representation of the entire album....
There was some discussion about a: second volume, though
there are no real plans at the moment for a follow up like a Volume 2. We considered making another album probably more of a pop album, but it's just talk right now, ideas and plans....
Currently there are no plans for any live shows after the release of Greenfields. We wanted to schedule a concert in
Nashville that would feature some of the guest artists, but at the moment there's no way to do that safely right now, and I don't think
there will be any live events until there is an effective vaccine available and most people have taken it....
Kind regards, John"" (Source Marion / GSI !).

Geoff Bridgford, Bee Gees drummer in the early 70ties.
Geoff Bridgford and Maurice, 1971.
He mailed me again in answer to a facebook posting I did yesterday about his work with amongst others Maurice in the eary seventies.
Read about his memories of those days and his new music and plans: a part of his mail to me:
"I can't really remember too many specifics about recording sessions during 1970/1971 - there were just so many - I see from the pic you sent, it mentions Nova Sound Studios -
I do recall I did a lot of recording there with Maurice - not only for him, but also for 'Tin Tin' who he was producing - and 'Lulu' who he was also producing some tracks for.
I think most artists accumulate recordings that for one reason or another don't see the light of day - a lot of the recordings for Maurice's solo album 'The Loner' which I played on, fall into that category.
Maurice was one of the most unique innovative musicians I have ever worked with - his magic multi-instrumentalist talent is such a huge part of the Bee Gees sound that spans the historical vastness of their massive recording catalogue.
I'm doing alright, thanks - yes it certainly has been a very strange year - with coronavirus continuing to play havoc internationally.
Fortunately Australians have done a pretty good job tackling the spread here and as a collective society remain pretty vigilant in dealing and coping with it.
Yes, live music feels like a luxury these days - I had played a couple of local gigs in Feb and March just before the pandemic hit and had to cancel a few I had booked.
Like a lot of musicians and punters alike, I'm looking forward to getting back out in front of a live audience again.
2020 has been a productive time for me musically - I had the opportunity to finish up some new recordings and compile some past recordings.
Since May I've released an 8 song 'INSTRUMENTAL' Album, a 4 song EP 'Never Give Up' and 2 singles, 'Power of love' and 'Innocent Bystander'.
All these releases are available on various online platforms with videos for all the releases streaming on my YouTube channel.
I'm currently using my 'Bandcamp' page as a Geoff Bridgford WWW 'Homepage' that page has links to the main online platforms where my music can be found. https://geoffbridgford.bandcamp.com/
Here in November I'm finishing up recording 4 original songs that will be released on a Blues/Roots, inspired/influenced EP - something a little different - hopefully out before the end of 2020 - will send you links.
Best wishes to you - stay safe and take care
Warm regards - Geoff B"

Robin John Gibb: "I will be a regular live guest on my business partner's new The Andrew Eborn Show on StellaTV
Performing songs of my own as well as my father's, talking about KTT's new online eBoutique & all its new products, as well as our new fine wines division 'Gibb'sOwn'
and its latest collaboration with some of the finest vineyards in Hungary's Tokaj region. We'll also be discussing KTT's other exciting endeavours, such as its foray into the
realms of Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence as well as Augmented Reality & the technology which WILL change our world entirely & no-doubt for the better (mark my words):
We will also discuss the latest news and hot topics including what is currently happening to our society and our world during this terrible pandemic.
Plus we'll touch on fascinating reports & stories from around the world as well as natural & supernatural phenomena, all of which is just not being reported in the mainstream media.
Look out for fun anecdotes too, which will 'lift the skirt' of the music industry and the entertainment sphere in general, giving you an insider's peek at all the triumphs,
tribulations & shananigans which do dwell therein & that which has gone before.
Fake news is another talking point which is now such an extremely hot topic, however my family and I being veteran targets of this practice,
I can attest first-hand to the fact that it has been utilised by the mainstream media and rags for a very long time indeed, since the dawn of hearsay, & has
only now been quite rightly exposed to the degree it has via the internet and all the freedoms it affords whistleblowers, watchdogs and fact-checkers.
A glorious time indeed is this in our history, and an awakening of sorts is afoot, worldwide. Gone is the reliance on 'spoon-fed' facts from
The Networks & in its place a willingness to explore many other vantage points from alternative news sources, so-called 'adversarial' outlets, disclosure and exposure projects etc.
We will be devoting an entire segment to this topic, with a rather hilarious venture into the realm of 'Deepfakes' which simply cannot be missed.
Also, Self-Help Tips such as NLP Techniques and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Hacks will be another topic to teach & explore,
all used to instil confidence in oneself and/or others as well as to earn the trust & support of your peers.
These chats & many more, including welcome requests & discussion ideas from you, the '4th wall' our valued public.
I for one, am really looking forward to it.

NEWS, November 9
"Today I received again an email from John Merchant with some updated info about the new album of Barry Gibb: "Greenfields".
Here some parts of his mail to me
Hi Marion, and good to hear from you.........
Yes, after having to keep this project a secret for more than a year, I'm thrilled that Barry is able to finally share this album with the world.
He's very happy with the way it turned out, and I hope that you as fans enjoy it too.
The bonus songs for the Target version of the album are new recordings that were completed during these same sessions.
Since they do not feature guest artists, they were not included on the main album.
The album will also be available on vinyl, and in my opinion, that version sounds beautiful. The standard vinyl version will be a 3-sided set, and the
Target version will be 4-sided. Mastered by Pete Lyman at Infrasonic Sound in Nashville, the double-album format provides more space for improved dynamics and a wider spectral balance.
Hopefully the bonus tracks will be available worldwide, since you will love hearing fresh takes on those songs. In particular, I think this version of
"With the Sun In My Eyes" is beautiful and dramatic, inspired by the response it got every time he performed it live on the Mythology shows.
I look forward to hearing your feedback on the album when it's released in January.

the Everly Brothers and so many other legends made their magic) the album took on a life of its own. I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to work with
Dave and all the artists who stopped by. They were all incredibly generous with their time and talent. They inspired me more than words can express.
I feel deep down that Maurice and Robin would have loved this album for different reasons. I wish we could have all been together to do it....but I think we were." Jason Isbell adds, "Barry Gibb is one of the greatest songwriters and singers in popular music history, and I'm happy to say he still has that beautiful voice
and that magical sense of melody. Working with him on this project has been one of the great honors of my career. He's a prince."

LATEST from Barry and Bee Gees projects: album and documentary.
HBO Documentary Films has secured the North American rights to a new feature-length documentary about pop legends
The Bee Gees that will get its TV premiere later this year on HBO and HBO Max.
Marion: "I think Barry's album and the docu will be coming within a couple of months now. I guess between December and February It's up to
HBO and the label to determine the release dates. The documentary will bring interesting footage I am sure....!! (maybe later, the 1979 tour on Blu Ray edition too?!.....
The footage of the documentary has never been seen or made available for previous films about the band. Some of this great,
new material includes a stunning 60-minute concert filmed in 1971 with a 20-piece orchestra, home movies of the Bee Gees on tour in America;
and perhaps the most historically significant items are the master tapes, the only known footage of the band performing songs from the film Saturday Night Fever during the disco era.
Not sure if the whole concert of 71 will be shown in the documentary probably parts".

Bee Gees Documentary:
"How Can You mend A broken Heart"
( Frank Marshall, USA, 111 min)
Was planned to be shown at the Telluride Film Festival from: September 3-7, 2020 but canceled due to the corona pandemic.
The Telluride Film Festival (TFF) is a film festival held annually in Telluride, Colorado, USA, during Labor Day weekend (the first Monday in September).
What will happen??
Marshall has been talking to film executives so as to show the film and sell it to one distributor. The documentary is ready and in the worst case it will be shown on
TV or streaming services. Marshall wants though to screen it through theaters first!!

"I finally have time to update you again and give answers on lots of questions which arrived at GSI recently and even today.
-To begin with, many of you noticed the articles about Steve Gibb in the newspapers. I always wait with posting until I have more info,
until I have checked whether it's okay to post at all. This quite often happens with situations even a few times this weekend!!
I just do not want to hurt anyone and I see GSI in the first place as a way to honour the Gibb music and the people behind that music. That being said:
I understand lots of you were quite shocked to read the news articles about Steve having had problems with drugs and alcohol.
I knew about that period in his past but I understand why a number of fans suddenly mailed me asking etc.
The story is a bit out of its context I heard and on top of that I understand that the last thing Steve thought was that the
UK press would pick up on his podcast, but as it is out there now it's okay. It's been a rough time for him and now he's even trying to help others who are in trouble. Great guy!!
Concerning some other subjects you often ask me about:
Due to the whole corona problem world wide most activities, also those concerning The Gibbs, are ON HOLD.
Though I have good hope that the Bee Gees documentary will air in December of this year!! and that Barry's new album will be released in January 2021!!
It seems the new album will come with a TV special although I am not sure yet.
The film won't be ready before 2022/2023 and Barry has not long ago started working on a book about his life which we talked about already here on
GSI quite some time ago. At that time an album did have priority for Barry. That album is finished now and waiting for a good time to get released.
Barry will take his time to write down his live story and I expect the book to be ready in 3 to 4 years from now.
Also due to corona like previous mentioned there is delay of starting the special Legacy Shows: the celebration of The Gibb Music, which would start this year.
Robin John Gibb, family members, business partner, friends and special guests are working on it for quite some time already and now
use the corona time to do lots of on line / charity projects. The live concerts won't be starting before somewhere next year with shows in Europe and outside Europe!!
Also of that project GSI keeps you fully updated!! Also keep following us on facebook!!
When there are more updates and plans to tell I will certainly let you know again, like always!! " Source: GSI.
Due to personal circumstances in Andrew Eborn's family we are having no updates at the moment about our Bee Gees London
Walks and all other activities and plans concerning and organized by KTT Legacy / GSI, including the release of the special KTT Legacy website. It will all have a delay, I hope you will understand.

Bee Gees Documentary airing info.
Many fans contacted GSI asking if they'd be able to see the new documentary in their country.
Universal Capitol are handling worldwide sales that fall outside of the international network of HBO affiliates who as I believe will automatically air and have the FIRST option to air the documentary.
By way of example I believe HBO are affiliated with Sky in the UK so I assume it will either on Sky 1 or the Sky Arts channel there on a date to be announced and also posted on GSI website.
When there's more news about other countries I will let you know.
Let's hope HBO will get in touch with many other channels in different countries for this project!!! I guess finally it will be shown worldwide.
Netflix and Amazon Prime are options too. The documentary hopefully will be available on DVD and Blu Ray later on. We will keep you posted of course.

Answers to fan questions
In answer to a number of questions asked to me the past few days concerning the Gibbs in Florida / America..... I can give you the latest from Miami Beach today
Concerning contact with kids and grandkids.
The kids and grand children are able visiting now.
Concerning the riot problems.
No problems in terms as the protests as they are downtown not too near us and the whole of Dade County where we live falls under our local government imposed curfew orders.
Concerning the planned events, projects
Like recently mentioned on GSI ( and I keep you updated anytime things change)
Everything has been put - on hold- a while ago like I told you and many people involved in working for any of the projects are either working from home or not available due to the corona rules at the moment.
Possibly and hopefully things start up later this year but we guess not before the 4th quarter of 2020, like earlier mentioned on GSI. This goes for things like the bio and Barry's album. The movie like I told you before was still in the earlier stages when corona problems started and won't be finished before end 2022/ early 2023 as we think at the moment.
I will keep you posted about these and any other projects and plans.

Letter from Blue Weaver
It was 21st May 2012 when I heard that Robin had died the day before. For days after that the realisation that there was now only one brother left haunted me.
After Maurice died I realised that I would never be able to fulfil my dream of ever playing again with the brothers but I did hope that there was a possibility of performing with Robin and Barry but again my dream was shattered.
I heard a quote not sure where it came from but instantly it made the situation clear 'We are one'.
I am not a lyricist or a singer, I have worked with so many greats I didn't need to be and writing words never came naturally in fact picking up a pen and paper was difficult but I wrote down...
I 'm standing on this stage alone,
Another spirit not yet flown,
But when I look around I see,
All my brothers standing next to me,
and singing harmony,
and when that final song is sung,
then We Are One...
I then sat at my piano and came up with this melody.
I tried writing other words but nothing touched me as much as that final verse that I had written and I realised there was really only one person who could finish it and sing it...
I always imagined this would be an orchestral track maybe with some piano hopefully one day it will be completed.
I am never happy with my performances as I really wish there was 'someone' there to sing it for you.
I believe now more than ever especially with what's happening around the world we need to stand together as one...
PS. I performed a medley of songs on our wonderful Worpswede Musichall Bosendorfer for friends and family for my 70th birthday and I keep looking around in surprise as all my grandchildren joined me onstage and this was the final very emotional song... https://youtu.be

Message from RJ Gibb
"Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful comments. It's all of you who are the real stars, as you make it all mean something.
Without your amazing support and appreciation, all of these efforts would be meaningless and would touch nobody's life emotionally.
In regards to the charity, each donation you give is potentially a life saving act. Please continue to support the
In This Together campaign, the 50/50 joint effort to raise monies for both the British NHS and the Serbian charity Lifeline,
raising monies for ventilators and other much needed medical supplies for both British and Serbian hospitals.
There is also the KTT Legacy Coronavirus Appeal, another donation page which was created by my company KTT in partnership with the Masonic Charities Foundation,
which is also raising monies for precious ventilators and other crucial medical necessities not only for the incredible NHS, but for hospitals around the world.
If you would like to donate, there's a link to the KTT Legacy Coronavirus Relief Appeal on my Facebook page timeline. Please give generously to this worthy and necessary cause.
Let's get as much aid as we can to as many people as possible.
Kind regards & stay safe everyone, Sincerely RJ"

"LEGACY, The Bee Gees Music Celebration"
Robin John Gibb and business partner Andrew Eborn are working on a new format to celebrate the music of The Gibb Brothers with The Italian Bee Gees and many special guests!!
These are not just tribute shows but special celebration shows in honour of the Gibb Music.
Due to the corona crisis a new show is planned instead of the one of April 28, 2020 and more shows will follow in different countries.
However it still depends on the corona situation at that time....:
"LEGACY, The Bee Gees Music Celebration"
January 14. 2021 / 20.00 / Antwerp / Stadsschouwburg
Robin John Gibb, Italian Bee Gees and other special guests!!! will celebrate the music of The Gibb Brothers.
You will also get access to the event with your original ticket of April 28, 2020.
More info on GSI about this and the other planned shows, when available.
Some nice articles by Tim Roxborogh again "Cucumber Castle" by the Bee Gees turns 50 this month, so here's why this 2-man Gibb project is so brilliant but so overlooked. 50-years on,
it's time people discovered (or rediscovered) it. The article is also about how it still manages to slip through the cracks in the huge back catalogue of the Bee Gees.
Thanks for reading and do share far and wide!
50 years since Maurice Gibb released "Railroad", his daughter Samantha has done a cover.
heck out both the original and cover, as well as the original B-side. The article analyses the song, as well as reminiscing about something Maurice said to me in 1999 that I've never forgotten.

My hopes, prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to everyone who has already lost a loved one and I wish a speedy recovery to all who have tested positive for
COVID-19, or are unable to receive a test at present and believe they might be infected. I (as well as the entire Gibb family I'm sure) are keeping all of you, every loyal fan,
without whom the music ceases to have meaning and appreciation, firmly in our minds, our hearts and in our prayers.
I am doing what I can through my company KTT and fellow Joint-CEO Andrew Eborn,
to raise money in order to source sorely needed respirators and medical equipment in general for hospitals the world over.
As with many pathogens that rob our senior citizens of their lives much too soon, many of us under the age of 65 are lucky
enough not to be forced to face the high risk of mortality facing our older nearest and dearest should we contract it.
They are of course feeling most, the sting of this horrific, ambitious and persistent virus and in cities such as New York City,
Madrid and London, as well as many other places the world over (places where only last year you would never have dreamt of contemplating such a scenario)
COVID-19 patients in critical condition are being "made comfortable" with Morphine or Fentanyl, then held by the hand and comforted not by their loved ones
(as they are of course unable to attend their bedside) until they draw their final breath. All because precious life saving ventilators are in such short supply.
So much so as to only be afforded to those deemed more likely to pull through. So we owe it to our forebears to care for them and take action where action is required.
So watch this space for further updates and information on how you might help
in this endeavour as we have begun the process of sourcing ventilators and the preliminary planning required, with the charities that myself and KTT work closely with.
Also watch this space for updates on new music releases and performances, some potentially live-streamed, so all at home in lockdown or self-isolation can enjoy.
Wishing all of you and yours lots of love, luck, health and safety. For you and the sake of your nearest and dearest, please stay away from crowds,
stay home unless absolutely necessary, and invest in a good hand sanitiser with 65% alcohol content or above.
Warmest regards & Godspeed R.J.

GSI ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE GIBB FAMILIES!!
Marion: "Dear GSI members,
The past weeks and especially the past days, GSI is overloaded with questions as to how The Gibb Family is doing now in these awfull corona days and what about all the
Gibb plans, releases, events, performances etc. for this year ....
I have contacted the family so I can give you all an update!!
They are all okay in Florida although pretty much everything is shutting down and they are staying inside most of the time too.
The Gibb family in Britain: Also there, the plans have been postponed as well for the moment but everyone is fine.
They are just trying to keep the kids entertained which is kind of hard when you can't go to public places.
The schools are still open but the Gibb kids are not going there at the moment. I need to let everyone of you know that all is well in Thame!!"
Message from Andy's daughter in Australia (Small part of Peta's latest message to me):
Peta: "Hi Marion, for now we are just fine here. Obviously the virus has arrived in Australia but it is fairly slow to spread so we are a little behind other countries.
Most people are going on as normal and we are by no means as badly off as Europe at this stage. Lots of measures have been put into place to slow the spread of the virus
Matt and I are still working and the boys are going to school as normal at this time.
Please continue taking care of yourself and stay safe."
Another message from Australia. One of the kids of Lesley Gibb: Tiffany, sent me a message Below is part of it: Tiffany: "Hello Marion, The virus hasn't really flourished here yet.Everything is still open however there are restrictions with public meetings
So no gatherings more than 100 people All functions cancelled and people are cautious The health system overwhelmed with testing
We are just concerned about mum. Keeping her home and encourage her to wear a mask when out. She is in good health so that's a positive.
Hope you and your family stay safe Marion All my love to you xx"
From USA: Ohio, Sam Gibb emailed me telling Maurice's family is okay too
Sam: "So glad you and your family are doing well. We are all good and heathy. It's so crazy what's going on.
I appreciate you reaching out and letting the fans know we are okay. Sending love and good health to you and everyone"
Marion: "and furthermore: All record company personnel are working from home now so: No official word yet about any
Gibb plan for this year but I assume that mostly everything from now on will be delayed until the 4th quarter of 2020!!
For everyone of the family it are as they say 'Strange Days Indeed', but: Do Stay Safe & Well."

Bradley Cooper is asked to play Barry Gibb in Bee Gees movie www.dailymail.co.uk
From the media recently:
Bradley Cooper has been asked by the producers of a film about the Bee Gees to portray Barry Gibb, the eldest of the three brothers who enjoyed global chart- topping success - and flops too.
The movie would follow the group, Barry and twins Maurice and Robin, from the time they arrived in Swinging London from Australia
(where they had emigrated from the Isle of Man) and had their first No 1 hit with the song Massachusetts in 1967. Additional info by GSI:
Paramount has purchased the life rights to the Gibb family estate on Graham King's behalf, which also includes the rights to use the group's hits in the film.
The Bee Gees movie plans however still are in an early stage!! There only have been some informal discussions about portraying Barry by Bradley!!
Whether Cooper will be involved, however, is still a question mark; a spokesperson for Cooper told the Mail that the actor is "not in negotiations at the moment."

Podcast about collecting Andy Gibb, Bee Gees things etc.
Thanks to Peta for sharing with me this podcast to post on GSI for all fans to enjoy. Hey Marion,
Thought I would share this podcast that came out today. It's a podcast about people who collect things, and in this episode the host interviews Kristin Nilsen, a huge Andy Gibb (and Bee Gees) fan with an amazing record collection. She also runs a social media project called 'My Celebrity Crush' where she collects people's stories of their first celebrity crush.
I am sure lots of fans will be able to relate to Kristin's story and enjoy it. Also, there are a couple of surprises at the end (that might just involve Shaun Cassidy and ME!).
I think it would be great for you to share this. Hope you enjoy it. http://forkeepspodcast.com

Update about Barry's plans
"As you all know plans had to change due to the corona virus outbreak early this year. I have mentioned this before on GSI and told you that all Gibb plans are - on hold- ( March)."
At this point, the present hope is for the Bee Gees New Documentary to air in the
USA in either December or January and that Barry's duets album be released 4-6 weeks after that.
GSI doesn't have any info yet concerning the documentary presentation in the rest of the world as Universal are still in discussion with potential broadcast partners,
but I think they will try to air everywhere at the same time or as soon as possible after the USA airdate.
Concerning the plans of the Bee Gees statue on The Isle Of Man, I earlier told you about.
Today I heard The Isle of Man government cancelled the unveiling due to the virus and said they would be in touch with
The Gibb Family after the Island opens up, to see if one can arrange for Barry to unveil the statue, as far as I know the actual statue was completed by the sculptor at his studio premises prior to the virus.
The movie is delayed too of course and is hopefully ready end 2022/early 2023. Depends on the corona problems the coming time.
Of course like always GSI will keep you updated and I will post the minute I receive more confirmed news again. Also keep following GSI on facebook for day to day updates and more.
Barry and Linda's wedding anniversary
In about two months Barry and Linda will be married for 50 years. September 1st. this year next to Barry's birthday is also his 50th.

with all the members for the celebrating couple on September 1 and I discussed and asked people close to the couple what they both
would like and appreciate from the fans and what would be a nice idea for GSI and members to do. We decided to post their married years in pictures and therefore
I ask all members who like to participate to send me photos of the couple taken between 1970 and 2020.
with copyright info and if possible additional information and in any case the year and if possible complete date of when the photo was taken.
Send your photos to the GSI email address (with subject: wedding anniversary) : email@example.com
Around August 1 I will check which photos are still missing (as we need at least 1 one of each of their married years) and then try to complete the photo series before September 1st.

Peta Gibb Weber (daughter of Andy) : "My cousin Stephen shared this recent article with me last night and I've been thinking about it ever since. It's from the blog of an Australian writer, Jesse Fink.
You might be surprised when you read it to hear that I really enjoyed it. It summed up my father's story with zero bullshit and an Australian's honesty.
I'm so over people romanticizing and mythologizing and sanctifying a man and his really dark story. It still causes heartbreak for a whole family, real people. This summary tells the tale as the tragedy it is."

Robin Gibb's secret song for actor is unearthed
A previously unknown Robin Gibb song has emerged among the belongings of the late Peter Wyngarde, the actor who starred in the 1970s ITV detective series Jason King etc...:
I Will Surrender.. What's true about this:
It was written for a Peter Wyngarde album but not included!
Thanks Robin John Gibb for your message and also for sending me this British newspaper clipping.
Below short part of the whattsapp message of RJ to me :
Robin John: Hello Marion, "I Will Surrender" is a piece my father penned for Peter Wyngarde's 1970 novelty album entitled
"When Sex Leers It's Inquisitive Head". The album was described as "revolting" and was subsequently pulled from the shelves only
4 days after release because of allusions by Peter to rape. "I Will Surrender" wasn't crude enough to be included I suppose...."
News update from Robin John
Like GSI earlier mentioned, all Gibb related plans and events might be delayed due to the corona virus problems all over the world. GSI will keep you updated of course about everything.
In the same message I received from RJ today (see topic above) he also mentioned about his plans concerning special shows for
celebrating the Legacy Of The Gibb Music which also are delayed, but RJ told me: ---
We are still in talks with more promoters as well as the Egiziano Brothers and the other artists etc. and I will keep you updated on progress and rescheduled shows etc.
Stay safe Marion. Lots of love & warm regards, Sincerely RJ ---

Robin John, performance for charity / announcement upcoming shows
February 27, London - Robin John Gibb: - "It was an honour and indeed an absolute privilege to support Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katarina,
their inspirational charity Lifeline, and to have performed at Thursday evening's Gala for so many incredible people.
Lifeline is an extremely worthy cause, raising funds for medical care and provisions across Serbia, a beautiful country which has never fully recovered
from the devastation wrought by the civil wars of the 1990s.
I encourage all who read this to click on the link below to learn more about Lifeline and all that they have accomplished and have set out to do,
as well as how anyone who wishes to can help to make a difference and donate to the charity.
There are also some wonderful photographs of Their Royal Highnesses, the many dignitaries, celebrities, ambassadors, and other valued supporters.

Barry Gibb interview in T.G. Sheppard Show
Last year while Barry was staying in Nashville he was interviewed by his good friend T.G.
I have received quite some questions lately as to what can be done to celebrate the special September 1 date this year. As in 2020 on that date it will be Barry and Linda's
50th. wedding anniversary!!
Most likely they would be very pleased to get donations for the Diabetic Research Institute !!
GSI will get back to this item later in the year.
We have given you several updates already about Vince last year telling he'd rehearse again for new shows and tour and would record again.
Vince recently rehearsed in LA amongst others for his new tour inwhich he also will perform old Bee Gees hits with new arrangements.
He also recorded a single produced by Shel Talmy and backed by me and drummer Clem Burke of Blondie. He's planning on returning to Los Angeles in
May for more rehearsals with shows tentatively planned for late this year.
This month he first will join The Egiziano Brothers again and Dennis Bryon who will do another tour through Germany celebrating The Bee Gees music in the Massachusetts shows of The Italian Bee Gees.
GSI has already mentioned earlier that during one of my meetings with Vince the passed years he mentioned some songs he'd written with Barry in 1976!!
During the summer of 1976 Barry met up with Vince Melouney again and wrote two songs that were never recorded. The numbers I believe are: Let it Ride and Morning Rain
Vince would like to finish and release these songs in near future and he would love to perform them during his tour. We will see and I will keep you updated, Marion / GSI
A new interview in The Sessions Series:
RICHARD BRAVO - Percussionist/Drummer and Arranger (Barry Gibb, Barbra Streisand, Juanes)
Bee Gees Movie, update !!
In answer to again a lot of questions to GSI about the upcoming Bee Gees movie.
I can tell you that I assume after what I hear and read lately and based on the rumours telling Bradley Cooper might be playing Barry Gibb as
well as the fact that it is the same producers as the 'Queen' Biopic are involved .... that the actors will be lip synch to the original Bee Gees recordings!!
and I guess that Barry, Yvonne and Dwina will likely be given the courtesy / approval of each of their respective individual brother.
Not sure how many sets of brothers / time zones the producers will decide upon.
I think they are planning to complete the filming by the end of next year and try to release it then in 2022. I will keep you updated!

Gaumont Cinema could be saved from demolition!
We are pleased to announce that The Co-operative Group has offered Cholrton CLT, working with a development partner, more time to deliver the
proposed community-based redevelopment of the Funeralcare building in Chorlton!!
The Co-op have accepted the CLT's published offer of £2.2m on the basis that the final proposal delivers the key community elements that the CLT
have stated. The Co-op will work with the CLT during this period as they develop their proposal which involves retaining the former Gaumont Cinema building
where the Bee Gees first performed in public. If a sale to the CLT does not proceed, The Co-op will go ahead with alternative development plans for the property.

Maurice Gibb unreleased material
Many fans regularly ask GSI what I know about possibilities to release any unreleased material of Maurice. Therefore I asked his family again how the situation is at the moment concerning this idea.
Adam Gibb, part of email to Marion / GSI, January 8, 2020: 'As it stands right now there are no plans to release any of my Dad's unreleased songs.
We have discussed the possibility of doing it but nothing is imminent. Hope this helps! Best, Adam. '

Barry's new album like GSI already mentioned is planned for this year. GSI received the news that there is no release date known at this time.
