Love And Hope Ball
The past 2 weeks GSI has been receiving questions about Love And Hope Ball: will it be organized this year, when , where etc.... I have checked:
We all know that organizing big events still is a problems due to Corona in most countries and so for the moment I recommend that you do not make any plans
(flights, hotels, etc.) to go and visit a possible Love and Hope Ball this Spring as there is no guarantee that this event will be confirmed and I understand that
Barry and Linda would not be attending in person this year. Perhaps only via video message.
If and when GSI has more info and details I will as always post this on website and Facebook group.

Shirlee Faur has passed away
Sad news at the beginning of the year, which GSI heard yesterday.
"I received the message that Shirley Faur has passed away.
Known by many of us as: Shirlee from Omaha.
Her daughter Karla wrote me Shirley passed away in her sleep on January 5th. 2022.
She had been suffering from Alzheimer's since about 2015.
She worked with me for quite some years doing fan work for The Bee Gees. I visited her at her home once in Omaha and we went to Miami Beach to visit Barry and Linda Gibb as well.
Wonderful memories will stay in my heart for ever.
Rest In Peace dear friend and thanks so much for everything. Marion/GSI"

The first of these books, DECADES: The Bee Gees in the 1960s has been published already 28 October. We've kept you up to date on Facebook about the project.
We are thrilled that Robin's son, Spencer, and former Bee Gee, Vince Melouney have written the foreword to this first volume."

Why It's Wrong To Call Maurice Gibb "The Quiet Bee Gee"
Tim Roxborogh :
"This week marks 19 years since the sudden death of Maurice Gibb brought an end to one of the biggest selling, most influential acts in popular music history, the Bee Gees. Here's what I wrote 4 years ago about why it never really sat right with me to call Maurice "the quiet Bee Gee".
Fake accounts, profiles, blogs on social media
All of you who follow GSI on Facebook as well, have read the regular updates about the problems concerning all fake accounts which keep appearing online,
in our case about people who pretend to be Barry Gibb and in some cases Steve or Michael Gibb as well.
New fake profiles pop up each day, are deleted and right away these people start a new account with a slightly different name.
Some fans still believe in these fake messages. Don't believe any of what they are saying and never pay them any money!!! Just report them every time!!. All these accounts are fake.

Robin John Gibb writes on Facebook in answer to many questions.....
about the 'raw' and special version Too Much Heaven by his father Robin Gibb and Paul McCartney.
"I'd like to say to everyone that I can indeed clarify for you, right now, that it's an absolute fact, beyond a shred nor a shadow of doubt, that my father recorded an amazing,
"raw" & heartfelt commemorative version of 'Too Much Heaven' with Mr. McCartney, in memory of his beloved twin brother Maurice.
It was to debut live, at a very much planned and anticipated free Memorial Concert for Maurice Gibb in Hyde Park akin to the free memorial concert 'Stones In
The Park' which was (of course the memorial concert thrown for Brian Jones when he was tragically passed away on the eve of the show,
was a gig initially intended for Mick Taylor's intro into the Stones as their new guitarist.
However, Brian Jones was murdered just two days previously and the concert then dedicated to him by his band accordingly.
Unfortunately, & much to my father's heartbreak,
Mo's concert was never to be.
I know all of this well because I was there as part of the production team. It was all very sudden, I saw Paul at a get-together thrown by our good friend
Lisa Voice, at her home in London. Paul was very keen to pay his respects to my Uncle Maurice with a song by the Bee Gees which he not only enjoyed singing,
but which he deemed lyrically appropriate for the occasion, in content, and one which easily matched his vocal style and range.
So from initial concept, to demo, it all felt rather sudden and hurried at that time.
You see, before I knew it, we were at Paul's studio with his production guys (whom I'm not at liberty to divulge at present).
My father spent a great deal of time, between recording, when we were down there, talking to Paul about the good old days
(anecdotal happenings and goings on at both Stigwood and Epstein's offices, etc.) and Paul showcasing to my father his guitar collection, including ones he'd used to write certain songs.
There were also various collector's items, such as instruments (bass violins, guitars, drum-sets, etc) and other pieces, from Elvis' band as well as from other 1950's rockabilly stars.
He also showed us old oscillators & first generation synthesisers.
The precursors of all modern keyboards, such as beautiful synthesisers by Moog, & others by Hammond (there was also an Odyssey,
I believe, but don't quote me on that) and other such instruments and sentimental objects, all in wonderfully kept condition.
As far as this topic is concerned,
I for one would just LOVE to resurrect the
'Too Much Heaven' version in question
and release it for all to hear.
As aforementioned to my good friend
Ricardo Calderon and my other friends featured on his podcast, I just need to contact Paul and flesh out a plan-of-action with him in this regard.
Given my upcoming tour perhaps we can, hopefully, figure something out. If not in time for the tour then certainly in the
Love & warm regards to you all,
Robin J. Gibb xx
It would, of course, be such perfect timing, especially given the fact that the hugely anticipated Bee Gees biopic film (Graham King's second instalment
after his release of the most successful movie known to man, Bohemian Rhapsody) is in the making, with Amblin (Spielberg), Paramount, and Kenneth Branagh at the helm as the film's Director.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I wish you a weekend to remember.
Cheers, Ciao, ...Outski"

Latest GSI message, info and update
"* First of all dear members I think you have noticed already that the past months I have been very busy reorganizing our membership list, quite some people
I had to delete for various reasons and this is still going on as the coming time I will again have to delete a number
of 'fans' unfortunately, but I prefer to keep this group a positive group in honor of The Gibbs / The Bee Gees, not a gossip group. It makes me very sad that some people like to use their public groups for gossip.
Please regularly take a look at the GSI Guidelines and when you find any rude or disturbing postings/comments on this group etc.: please just report to Facebook so I'll get a notification, thank you!!
in answer to regular questions I receive from GSI members I have here some latest info from my official source:
* For questions you can always write me an email but there is no special club address for fans to get in touch or get things send to Barry or the Gibb Family.
Management have been thinking about this but decided there won't be coming an official PO box for fan mail/autograph requests again.
Most info and news will always be posted on GSI website and regularly, if necessary in daily updates, on our GSI Facebook group as I am constantly in touch with the Gibb Family and my sources for news etc. !!.
If besides that you have any questions you can write to the GSI address: firstname.lastname@example.org like mentioned in the guidelines.
If and when I have time I will try to help and answer you.
This unfortunately also means that like we started posting early in 2020: there is no possibility to write and request Barry for signed photos or any other signed items via any address.
If ever this situation changes GSI will let you know for sure.
In very few cases I will be able to help like, I did in the past.
* Concerning buying official merchandize items:
Management told me that they'll hope to do a Bee Gees merch deal next year and that being the case the merch company would shut down all the
bootleggers which are going around now and which by the way are and have never been allowed to post on GSI.
When GSI receives more info about the above, I will surely let you know on the GSI Facebook group as well as on the GSI website."

Not much news about the movie, since the latest GSI update but I have the feeling that it might be possible that now the movie is being planned for January 2023, instead of November 2022. I keep you updated.
One is talking now to actors and news regarding the casting should be announced soon.
- DVD /Blue-Ray of How Can You Mend.... Docu.
Unfortunately this will not include footage/ complete concert from the Spirits tour as once mentioned. Only some deleted scenes which were not included on the

Hopefully Barry will go on stage again to sing live in near future.
Several articles mention the possibility this week.
The report ( of which a photo is added from Austria TV), in short in English :
Barry Gibb wants to go back on stage
Everyone knows his falsetto voice.
Barry Gibb wrote and sang with the
Bee Gees, has some world hits and was also a
successful producer. But his fame
also faces personal tragedies.
The loss of his three younger brothers, he never got over.
Shortly before his 75th birthday, which
he celebrates on September 1st, the father-of-5 announces
on Instagram his
return to the spotlight.
"I can't wait for this one
song to play for you guys again",
he wrote under a video clip.

Message from Spencer Gibb on Facebook, part 1
This has been an amazing ride. It has also been a tough and painful couple of years for so many people as we all know. I do have some projects on the horizon that I'm very proud of.
I am also about to start a new solo record (more info to come soon!) . My plan was to start earlier but the broken leg and drugs made a lot of things hard for about two months.
I love you all so much and you have no idea how much I appreciate your love and support over the years. If you've been following my career for a long time, through 54 Seconds and any other projects,
I thank you so much! If you just discovered what I do, I thank you equally. My goal over the next few months is to make everything I have ever done available online.
There are records that have been unavailable due to contractual issues with labels etc. Also there are demos and unreleased stuff from my "vault" that I'm proud of too.
Some of it will take a while to figure out ??. There will be a reissue of the 54 Seconds record "Postcards From California"
because sadly that became unavailable after a deal with Warner Bothers fell apart. I will also be releasing a limited 20th Anniversary edition of "Coma" next year.
Remastered and on vinyl too! Including bonus tracks! So that will be fun. At the same time I will be working on the new solo record I mentioned earlier.
I know I'm going to get comments about this regardless, but in all honesty I won't respond until it's time to make another post that has more details.
I am excited to get back into the studio and make this record. The writing process is almost finished.
However, this will be the last record I will ever make. I know this will upset some of you, but I have my reasons and I feel I owe it to all of you to let you know.
I won't release it until I am confident that it will make everyone proud. Thank you again and I hope there's understanding and love.
Message from Spencer Gibb , August 25, 2021, part 2.
Thank you all for your kind words! Really means a lot! More maybe than you realize! I've dealt with haters, idiots, death threats and all kind of weird shit over the years.
I'm ok with that. I can handle that stuff. Again thank you. That's not my motive though. Aside from dealing with some personal issues,
I will continue to work on musical projects in some form or another. As far as making and writing a record, my whole life has been expressing myself that way.
It has been therapy. I have a few more things to say. But not after that. There isn't anything left. I'm not saying that couldn't change one day, but as of now I think it's time to say my final piece and bow out. It's not supposed to sound morose, just honest.

On June 25th a building collapsed in Surfside, Miami, South Florida of which I posted already on our Facebook group last week.
As you all know Barry, Linda and families live in South Florida.
I just received an update about the situation from them by mail, July 4th. ( part of the mail):......
" it's all so very, very sad. Ashley, Therese and Lucas live in Surfside (which is about 3 miles from here) and they and in reality nearly everyone in
Miami know people who know someone who lived in the building and the Mayor of Surfside - Charles Burkett has been a family friend since 1981
when he lived over the garage of his then grandmother's house next door to Barry and Linda. All of the local independence day -
July 4th firework displays have been cancelled in respect of the victims and their families as they prepare to demolish the remaining part of the
building later today or in the morning. They were worried about hurricane 'Elsa' which is due to make landfall in Florida late Monday early Tuesday.
The only good news for 'Surfside' is that the very latest forecast now has the storm going up the west coast of Florida and as a result we will only get the very outer weather related bands here.".......

In answer to questions ...
To GSI and after there has been confusion by fans about the 2021 UK - You Win Again - concerts in which Robin John Gibb would participate in some way:....
GSI likes to mention the following:
Unfortunately the Entertainers Group of the You Win Again shows did something which made it so, that Robin John decided NO longer to start perform in, nor narrate that show!!
Fans, who expected to see and / or hear Robin John in these shows might try go get their refunds from the box office.
Robin John's Legacy Project of which GSI told you about several times before will start February next year. It brings him and his guests first to Scandinavia and other parts of
Europe as well as UK too, with after Europe performances in .....Las Vegas etc, for which we are now negotiating. A pity the "You Win Again" show is a disappointment for Robin John.
The Legacy Shows to celebrate the music of The Bee Gees will go worldwide with The 3 Egiziano Brothers and their live band and Robin John,
Blue Weaver as well as guest performances and dancing and lightning show and more surprises!!
These shows are in cooperation with The Gibb family members and so the most authentic and the only rightful Celebration Of The Gibb Music.
Robin John: "The Egiziano brothers are the only -tribute- which I fully endorse and which my dear late father fully endorsed in life.
That is why they are worthy of the Legacy Project. And with them I am doing these Legacy Shows".
Unfortunately many tribute bands sing play back and/or use electronic programs to upgrade their sound of which the audience has no knowledge.
The Egiziano brothers and Band (The Italian Bee Gees) sing 100% live. No trying to look, sound, be, act or try to talk or sing like: Barry, Robin and Maurice
but just performing being themselves: a group who has lots of respect for the Bee Gees catalog and loves to help keeping that Legacy alive in their
own way and with lots of passion and love.
Remember!!: There's just only one Bee Gees, that's the real Bee Gees sound ....
and no group should ever try to copy them only:... celebrate them and their music!!

Immortalized in bronze-Bee Gees Stayin Alive statue
At 3 pm local time, finally the unveiling of the Bee Gees Stayin Alive statue took place on the promenade of Douglas which at the moment gets renovated and this
new statue on the new promenade will be a tribute to those famous 3 brothers who were born on this island and in this city.
GSI Facebook group was about live at the scene thanks to our member Sue C. who was present at the promenade and sent her photos and videos through to
GSI only minutes after the unveiling, to be posted on the group, that was awesome!!
"Exciting day on the Isle of Man when I found out the Bee Gees statue on Douglas Prom was being unveiled today
It was kept hush hush due to the prom being a disastrous building site at the moment. Hopefully a more inclusive event will be held later....
Wish they were here. Hopefully Barry and other family members will visit for an official commemoration once the disaster that is the prom is completed!!
Anyway here's a couple of videos and some photos of this afternoon. I love the statues....Mo is stunning! I'm sad that the sculptor was unable to capture Barry .
See what you think. I'm so happy that at last our legends are so specially honoured here in their birthplace."
Marion / GSI:
"The statue is an art impression, a tribute.... to the 3 brothers who were born on this Island and in this city. Fans like it and fans hate it.... Some people compare it too much with real photo material of the boys.
It can always be done better but I like it as a true tribute although not all details are the best."

Andy Gibb memorabilia
Source: Marion / GSI:
"There are a lot of wonderful Andy Gibb memorabilia which deserve to get a special attention and special place", that's what Peta Gibb Weber told me and
she is so grateful to have received some wonderful items recently from Chino Rhoades
( husband of the late Bernice Gibb). Bernice had stored a lot of Andy's belongings and Peta is so happy and thankful to Chino for ensuring that some of these
very special treasures are now at Peta's home following the recent loss of Chino's dear wife, Peta's cousin Berry, (Bernice).
"These gold and platinum records will be lovingly restored by a specialist once lockdown is over in Australia", Peta mentioned to GSI.
GSI will be posting about the memorabilia later on again when Peta has decided how these items can be best enjoyed by fans in the future.

Bee Gees Old Clippings
Thanks to fan Jessa F.
As an avid fan of both the Bee Gees and digital newspaper archives, I've compiled a few clippings dating from 1967-1975.
I hadn't seen many of these before and thought they may be of interest.
Probably my favorite comment (from a 1969 review of 'Odessa' published in the Sydney Morning Herald):
"If they [the lyrics] were written down in a school textbook they would probably be called poetry,
but here they are, belting at you with electric guitars, bass, cello and drums and delivered by the poignant voice of Robin Gibb.
You never had it so good."

Hello everyone, I'm back
I've finally managed to receive and gain full access to my Personal Profile.
Any of you who might have wondered what was up, what was terribly wrong, I can reassure them now that I am in good health and spirits and neither
did I willingly neglect nor ignore them. The truth of the matter is, my Facebook Personal Profile was indeed compromised by an interloper on the night of 24th of March 2021
I thank all of you who have sent, through Marion Adriaensen and Megan Pankowska Golub, whilst my profile was deactivated, their poignant,
sincere and heartfelt words of support and condolences after the very sad and sudden loss of my Aunt Bernice aka Berry.
I also thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all of your congratulations and heartfelt words of love, support and well wishes
which we have also received in the wake of our new, big announcement in regards to the new little one's (imminent) arrival.
I look forward to speaking with all of my friends and followers once again.
Kind regards to you all & keep safe, always.
Much love, Sincerely

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Announces HBO Titles Available on Digital in May 2021
The Bee Gees: "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" - Available to own on digital May 31: The triumphs and hurdles of brothers
Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees, is chronicled in this documentary, directed by acclaimed filmmaker
Frank Marshall (Seabiscuit, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). The iconic trio, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs,
including 20 #1 hits throughout their storied career. This film follows the Bee Gees' meteoric rise as they rode the highs of fame and fortune,
negotiated the vagaries of the ever-shifting music business and navigated the complexities of working so intimately alongside family.

In addition to the earlier posted info by GSI about the statue.
Here's the latest update. Listen to audio:
Marion / GSI: "As previous reported on GSI the plan was for the statue to be erected as soon as it was ready/early 2020 and that
Barry was going to unveil a commemorative 'Plaque' at the statue site on July 4th 2020 and other family members were to be invited.
The promenade is being renovated and the statue will probably be erected when those renovations are completed and / or the island reopens.

"It was a true 2 year labour of love which ironically in a bittersweet sense became a requiem for my father as well.
We played the songs at his funeral as per his final wishes. There's a lot more material we wrote together for other projects
(as well this one as there are songs which we had to cut as the album would've been too long) which I'm now planning with influential & significant interested parties in the industry,
so hopefully by summer we'll be releasing that material for you. It's a long time coming, and I've had to finish a lot of it using only demo
versions and memo recorders we used at that time (rather like the method I used to finish 'Sydney' using his
Garageband iPad app's 'ideas folder'). Its taken a while to compile and refine but we're almost there so watch this space."

Lesley: "Such a lot of memories in that house. Barry saved my life Andy was born Barry started singing in that house
It was Xmas night 1955 I got a new dress for Xmas it had a very full skirt I stood with my back to the fire and my dress caught fire Barry
pulled the rug off the floor and wrapped it around me. I was badly burned and spent a long time in hospital . I don't know what might have been if Barry hadn't done that he was only 9
We had a coal cellar and it had like a small stage, I use to charge the kids a penny to come in and see Barry sing I think it was hound dog"

New Bee Gees Film with Dutch disco lights!!
Short GSI translation of video which is in Dutch.
Rico Vrijhoeven from The Netherlands received a phone call from The USA about 2 years ago.
He first thought it was a joke and he didn't pick up the phone but right away received a voice mail message and someone of the US film company Warner Brothers.
The fact was the company was looking for the old fashioned disco lamps and they were searching for people who might collect these items.
It turned out that Dutch Rico was recommended all over the world for these lamps. In February 2020 just before Corona, someone visited Rico to look at his lamps.
The man was very excited to see all the different types of disco lamps Rico had. He wanted to make a deal to get all the lamps over to the USA for about 9 months.
Rico asked what Warner was planning with all this stuff and the man said do you know Rocket Man and Bohemian Rapsody....??
Well he said there's coming another film: about The Bee Gees. The idea is to rebuild the discotheque where the movie Saturday Night Fever was filmed.
The deal was made and in November 2020 a container would arrive to ship everything to America. However before that happened everything was locked because of Corona.
Such a pity, chance of a lifetime for Rico but Corona stopped all plans. Until about early April 2021 he received a mail asking if he was still alive!!!
And Rico right away had to laugh and think of the song Stayin Alive!! They asked if he still had all the stuff they wanted for the movie.
It seemed they were planning to re-start the project again so we are now busy arranging things and I hope after all my stuff will indeed go to America for the
Bee Gees film!! Fingers crossed Rico said! This mega deal will be good for Rico after all the Corona trouble which wasn't good for his business.
He's DJ and couldn't work last year. If this deal becomes a fact everything for Rico will be okay again and he will be Stayin' Alive!!

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

music is hot
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!.
