The Future Of The Bee Gees Catalog!!
Bruce Resnikoff, president and CEO of Universal Music Enterprises, a division of Universal Music Group that handles Capitol's catalog, said that his organization is
aware of what they've got on their hands - and plans to handle it with care. Both companies are a division of UMG.
"The Bee Gees are a major part of pop music history, known from the early days for their iconic songwriting and harmonies to their evolution to a chart-topping powerhouse group,"
said Resnikoff, who's an avowed believer in the power of classic catalogs.
"We're always seeking ways to introduce new audiences to the Bee Gees' incredible music, most recently with a CBS Television special last year, and we're constantly thinking of exciting new
experiences for the band's passionate fan base," the executive added.

GSI answers to many of your questions
The new date / location for the Love and Hope event is set for Saturday April 14, 2018 at the 'Faena Forum' in Miami Beach.
Also for this April date there are no plans for Barry to perform.
There are no concerts planned (yet) for this year. Probably because
Barry is very busy with all kinds of other projects. For instance: plans for a book, The Adoration Trilogy part 2-3, writing and recording new material, working on the Bee Gees musical etc. etc. If
concert(s )will come this year we will give you all details.
You wanted to know a bit more about what Adam Gibb is doing in day to day life:
He is busy with raising his kids together with his wife
Is taking care of his fathers estate
Busy with music and songwriting
Screen writing, he majored in that at college: in motion picture and history.
Is there any Gibb merchandise to buy and where
Yes, I guess when googling on the internet you will find several sites with items concerning The Bee Gees, however they have nothing to do with the official Gibb Family merchandise.
GSI only posts about the official merchandise.
Many questions about how many children The Brothers Gibb have and grand children, their names etc. etc.
Just visit my GSI - Gibb Family Tree.
Lots of questions about the many fake Barry Gibb accounts on the internet
We mentioned this a few times before, specially on the facebook group
Regularly some unknown people on the internet approach Bee Gees fans, starting conversations and telling them they are Barry Gibb and always try to get money for charity.
Don't ever believe Barry approaches you through internet
Don't ever give your name, address and account number to any stranger on internet (not even someone telling you he is Barry: that is always fake)
Don't ever send any money !
Don't ever publicly names of fans on social media and acuse them of doing this when there is no prove!
Barry will never ask fans in messages to help him with a charity
If there is any news about Barry which he likes to share with the fans, this will always be posted on his official sites and pages (as well as some websites/groups like GSI etc. who always will post it too) .
It is a pity there are fake people and accounts going around on internet, not much to do about it but: JUST IGNORE IT ALL!!

Including statement by Peta Gibb.
Like mentioned on GSI before we would soon come with more info about the Andy memorial plans in Miami.
Now very important and long awaited new announcement is there!!
Please if you like, read and fill in the letter with your data and send it by email to the address in red.
Deborah Cristina and Team.
Click here for letter (Pdf) by Deborah and Team and statement of Peta!
Additional message from Peta:
Peta Weber: Please don't interpret my statement as a message of support or otherwise. I am asking people to be aware that this project has no
official connection with my father and that any requests for donations do not come from me or have anything to do with his estate.
I would never ask anyone for money. Whilst I don't have any objection to a statue, people should always be cautious and need to do their own homework before they donate money anywhere.
This will be my only clarification, I felt it was important to do so.
NOTE FROM GSI: I'd like to thank Peta Gibb for her statement concerning the development of a memorial by fans and friends for our beloved Andy Gibb (her father).
Although it is a fan project The family and the estate of Andy Gibb have no objection to this plan but.....
please DO NOT contact the family with comments, questions, suggestions etc. about the plans and donatings to this project as it is a fan project and the family have no involvement in it whatsoever!!
Please make your own enquiries concerning sending donations. Andy's family is not involved in any way but the Friends Of Andy Gibb Team can be trusted a 100% They have known Andy very well.
Thank you Peta for this statement and herewith having answered so many questions.
There have also been fans asking if this project has anything to do with The Gibb Family Foundation formerly known as The Andy Gibb Memorial Foundation.
NO!! It has no affiliation with The Gibb Family Foundation established in 1988. (Beverly Burke, Co-Founder Gibb Family Foundation).
Marion / GSI For all questions about this project please contact Deborah Cristina at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To all fans, let's hope many of you can help and only with your help the team can realize this project!

GSI info about SPIRITS Having Flown (2)
GSI is overloaded with questions and comments. I know how much all fans love to see more Spirits material released.
For many years you are asking for it already and to me personally it would be wonderful too as I spend around 6 weeks in that tour: The time of my life!!!
I have been asking arround and I already mentioned: although people are working on the old Bee Gees material like the Spirits tour videos, sound clips etc.
it still is not ready for release or ready for official announcements yet.
But like always GSI keeps you informed and updated and I am sure
(after having been in touch again with my sources) I can say it will be released at some point in the near future.
Capitol people and even another team (working on another Bee Gees project for near future!) are at the moment busy going through all the tapes and videos on file
(including all the tapes and videos of Middle Ear) that initially went to Warners when the Miami studio was sold but have now been moved all to the
Capitol storage facility in LA along with everything else that Warners had.
Concerning all your questions regarding the taped Spirits concert which once was sent to me to use for a Bee Gees meeting!!!:
Unfortunately, like I already mentioned before, one doesn't think the sound quality of this Cleveland show would be good enough for using as bonus material with a
Spirits official release. It is a private filming with using only one mike. However the tape will contain material which is
perhaps to be used for another project which is in progress at the moment about The Bee Gees.!! I will keep you updated and we all keep our fingers crossed.

# This month Barry will be knighted in Great Britain!
Barry has not been knighted yet. He is not 'Sir' yet. His knighthood was announced late last December 2017 which I reported on GSI facebook group and here on the website.
The official ceremony for Barry has not taken place yet, but will be later this month. It will be private and no official announcement will be made beforehand. GSI will keep you posted.
It will be a private ceremony by the Queen, or someone of her direct family members, and probably held in Buckingham Palace. Do not expect a full live TV coverage.
You will probably see clips in the news bulletins. No large photo reports either. Hopefully some nice pix will be made by the few special photographers present at the palace.
It is against royal protocol to take photos. The press will be doing that after the ceremony.
This is a very special occasion with strict rules as Barry and family will know and obviously follow out of respect for the Queen and all the royals present.
To answer your questions: there is no possibility for fans to be present!! Each person who will be knighted may bring one or two persons with him/her to the palace.
When Barry is in Britain for his Knighthood ceremony he will be getting a special present !! More about that on GSI later on!!
# Andy's Celebration week / memorial in Miami
From March 5th. untill March 11th. there was ANDY'S EVERLASTING EXTRAVAGANZA / Andy's celebration week
to celebrate what would have been his 60th. birthday. Fans from all over gathered in Miami for a special program of celebrations together.
A photo report by fans has been posted on our group already and there will also be a link to the photo report on this website ( see: REPORTS).
Next to that you remember that GSI together with lots of other fan groups helped with signing a letter for the City Of Miami to try and get a permanent memorial for Andy.
Deborah Cristina started this and we mentioned about it last year already.
After lots of talks and meetings there might indeed be coming a nice permanent memorial for Andy Gibb as well as maybe a yearly event.
Lots of talks and time to go however!! I cannot tell much about it yet but the plans are making me very enthusiastic, it sounds beautiful!!
Please keep following GSI. When there's news we will post it.

Peta Gibb Weber:
I choose to remember my father today, March 5, on what should have been his 60th birthday. I wish he was here to celebrate with us and to be the dad to me,
the husband to my mother, the pop to his grandchildren and the mate to my husband that we have all needed but he was never given the chance to be.
I won't be commenting further on the 10th. I prefer not to commemorate the events of 30 years ago, events that never should have happened in the first place,
took away a young life with so much unfulfilled potential far too soon and caused so much unnecessary pain. What happened in
March 1988 remains etched clearly in my mind forever but I have no further wish to talk about it publicly. Just please know that I am now absolutely at peace with how things turned out but I will never forget.
So, happy birthday to my father in heaven. For me personally, this time is not a time for celebration. It is about making sure what happened to
Andy Gibb (and too, too many others like him) stops happening. History continues to repeat itself and, with this in mind, if you possibly can, please consider a
practical tribute to my father's memory via a contribution to @musicsupportcharity or @musicares. These organisations provide invaluable and tireless support to
musicians and others in the music industry struggling with mental illness and addiction.
And finally - let the music live on. For that is all we really have left. I have more news about that coming very, very soon.
Barry Gibb update
* In answer to many questions: just in short , Barry is still involved in several projects of which I cannot tell much yet.... and next to that is writing new music.
* Also he, together with Dwina and Yvonne are consulting as well with UTG (the Universal Theatre Group) re the development of the stage musical. However this will take quite some time before ready to relase.
* I am not allowed to announce the exact date of the Knighthood investure ceremnony but it will be in the summer of this year , maybe June.
