Barry Gibb gives update about Bee Gees Film and his own book
Barry recently mentioned and confirmed in several of his interviews what we already posted a while ago on GSI: that both a book about his life and a film about his life with The Bee Gees are in the works.
Barry: "The biopic- film could be about two years away.
You shall see how I saw the world through my eyes, and there are a lot of things that nobody ever knew about.
It is a million moments, you know - a million moments that change your life in one day."
The film is to follow the group from the time they arrived in London from Australia and had their first number one hit with 'Massachusetts' in 1967.
The still untitled movie is yet to get a director but is to be produced by Graham King, who worked on the Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
Paramount Pictures are also involved in the film and have purchased the rights from the Gibb estate to use the original Bee Gees' classic music.
The motion picture is being written by Anthony McCarten, known from 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and more.
Barry also has an autobiography in the works with his son Ashley, 43, and he teased that the book will contain content not suitable for the screen.
He said "There are things in the book that could never be in the film"
GSI keeps you updated but both projects will take several more years to release.

Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Virtual Gala- one, January 30.
More about the chat with Barry Gibb
A video of the Bee Gees performing "Stayin' Alive" at an arena led to an introduction of Gibb, who was described by Davis as "the mensch of all mensches"
for his graciousness in pulling off a favor for the mogul. Davis described how he met up with Gibb and pulled sheets of paper out of his jacket pocket containing the entire
Arista roster, in alphabetical order. In his recollection, the Bee Gee read through the entire list until he got to the W's, then lit up and started gushing about Warwick.
Davis considered him mensch-y not just because he wrote "Heartbreaker" in a matter of days for Dionne but said he would produce it at the studio of her choice, not his,
befitting her as both a woman and legend.
Davis said he still couldn't understand why Gibb didn't save it for the Bee Gees, but the singer said it wasn't solely magnanimous:
"You've got to remember, when I wrote the song, it was a time when the Bee Gees couldn't get on the radio," he pointed out, speaking of the post-disco-backlash years.
"We thought, maybe if people don't know we wrote the song, they'll play it."

Pre Grammy Gala 2021 etc. with.....Barry Gibb!!
Clive Davis about this years plans of pre Grammy Gala virtual, with stars like Barry Gibb, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen etc. !!
The Sony Music Entertainment chief creative officer will host from sunny Miami for the Saturday celebration.
This month it has been decided to reschedule the Grammy Awards from Jan. 31 to March 14 due to the pandemic, so he simply decided to honor the original date and then hold a second event on the party's traditional evening before the Grammy Awards.
"When the Grammys moved to March 14, I had so many wonderful artists already set to join me on 30th and rather than getting into schedules,
I decided to keep it Jan. 30,
but also do our traditional night before the Grammys on March 13," Davis says.

Happy to announce today
Number One In Australia Too!!
CONGRATS FROM GSI!!
The legendary Barry Gibb takes out his first ever solo #1 on the ARIA
Charts as he debuts in the top of the Albums Chart with Greenfields:
The Gibb Brothers' Songbook. Gibb's third solo album and the follow-up
to In The Now (#3 Oct. '16) sees him teaming up with country stars to
reimagine songs from the Bee Gees' canon such as 'Words', 'Jive
Talkin'', 'How Deep Is Your Love', 'Run To Me', 'Too Much Heaven' and
more. Collaborators include Keith Urban, Olivia Newton-John, Jason
Isbell, Dolly Parton, David Rawlings and Gillian Welch, Sheryl Crow
and Alison Krauss. As one third of the Bee Gees - who were inducted
into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1997 - Gibb topped the ARIA Albums Chart
with Live - One Night Only 1 Mar. '99, Bee Gees Greatest 17 December
1979, Spirits March 1979, and Saturday Night Fever, April 78.
At the age of 74, Gibb is the latest in a growing line of
comparatively elderly men to enjoy No.1 albums in the recent years,
and with the Bee Gees' first No.1 single having arrived in 1967 it
means he now can claim a 53-year span of chart-topping records.

Collaboration Barry Gibb and Beach Boy Brian Wilson?!
It all started with some social media postings recently.
How cool would that be if these two would team up too!
Barry is full of plans about new collaborations so who knows!!
Two of the most accomplished members of two of popular music's most successful brotherhoods shared their admiration for each other on Wednesday (February 17, 2021).
It began when the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson praised the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb on his several social media platforms:
"I really admire Barry Gibb," he wrote. "He is like King Kong. He and I could probably work something up together".
Barry Gibb responded to Wilson's compliment that same day on Wilson's Instagram.
"You are the reason I'm living," he replied. "You prove to me that you can do whatever you want to do with your voice and all these years I have just been following you and everything you do.
If I'm King Kong then you are Godzilla! Thank you for such a wonderful compliment. We must connect and collaborate as soon as we can. I love you pal ! As I said...you're the reason. BG".

2021 Pre-GRAMMY Virtual Gala: How The Annual Clive Davis Extravaganza Adapted To The Pandemic
Morgan Enos, MusiCares, Feb 2, 2021 www.grammy.com
For celebrities and everyday folks alike, the past year has taken a toll on all of us. As such, an extra glint of humility shone through these interviews.
"I've never taken anything for granted, and you've never taken anything for granted," Davis told Barry Gibb. (The latter is having a banner 2020 and 2021 with the HBO doc on the Bee Gees,
"How Can You Mend a Broken Heart", and his duets album with Americana artists, Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1.)
"To see this album debut at the top of the charts is thrilling for me as a fan, and it's got to be thrilling for you as the architect."
"It's shocking; there's no question about that," Barry Gibb replied. "It's the first No. 1 in 40 years, and that's something extremely special that I can't put into words ...
It was all like a dream, and the whole thing came like a vision, including the title".

Answers to some fan questions
What about the earlier mentioned Barry Gibb Special.
The idea was to broadcast the special with guests around the release of the album, somewhere in Nashville, Barry also mentioned this in his interviews,
but because of the pandemic it was not possible. Hopefully this will still take place sometime later.
What about a DVD with extra concert footage.
Regarding the DVD with extras that was the plan since Universal and Capitol own the rights. Maybe this year a set with extras will see the light of the day in the
US at least. Who knows we have to wait and see if they will finally are going to use the 1979 Spirits concert and the Australian 1971 concert.
GSI will keep you updated.

Above all that..... Greenfields: Nr. ONE!! Congrats Barry!!
The Bee Gees music is very hot these days again, with the new documentary, Barry's new album and lots of earlier Bee Gees albums doing very well again too.
Some of the latest news info out of the recent chats with Barry:
Some of the many great projects in the pipeline:
The Barry Gibb book , GSI earlier mentioned about, is done by Barry and Ashley. They're working on it for about 5 years already.
Barry is telling and Ashley typing it all down. It will be the whole story, the real story. At the moment they are halfway through the story, after the fever period.
Still looking for a final part of the story but it will take some time.
Anyway the Bee Gees documentary will always be the most important of all.
Concerning another upcoming project: The film
Barry: "Spielberg and his company is one of the partners working on it together with Paramount, Stacy Sneider, Graham King. It couldn't have been a better team.
I really have trust in them. At the moment we're just at the point as to decide who the screenplay writer is which they are going to announce themselves, I cannot tell that right now".
Barry's finds it difficult to watch The Docu. and won't do that. He only saw some parts in the very early stages of the project.
"It's too difficult to see that everyone in my family has gone. I don't even care if some bits are not true in it. I stopped to worry about those things" Barry said. "Everyone has a different truth".
He does think he can watch the story as told in the upcoming movie as like he said "I am very, very much involved in this project myself".
After Covid he likes to do some live performances again as well.
Countless interviews, video chats, reviews etc. you can find them all on our facebook group every day. Be sure to watch!.
