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...

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
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."
more info on GSI facebook.
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.
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.

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."

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.

"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.

Message from Robin John Gibb
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.

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.
God bless all who attended and contributed to last Thursday's Gala, indeed, what you have given makes such a huge difference".
Love & Best wishes to you all, Sincerely RJ
- PS: "Over the next few months, KTT (the company Andrew and I forged together) will be producing more live shows here in the UK as well as Europe.
Keep an eye on this space as well as Gibb Service International (GSI) facebookgroup, for updates and details on how to attend.
Hope to see you there !! ".

Shows where it will be performed by myself along with The Egiziano Brothers!"
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
