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!! Marion / GSI:

  The boy from Port Pirie who guided the Bee Gees to global fame
About Robert Stigwood
Robert Stigwood was born in Port Pirie, South Australia. In the 1950s he moved to London, with only five pounds in his pocket. Through a mixture of talent, charm, and bravado, and many a bottle of champagne, he became renowned for his ability to pick and promote talent. Within two decades Robert was the entertainment industry's most powerful tycoon, managing the careers of Cream and Eric Clapton and The Who. In 1967, the Beatles manager Brian Epstein passed him a demo tape, made by three young singers from Australia - the Bee Gees. Stigwood loved them, signed them, and made them superstars.

  Night Fever: the rise of The Bee Gees
On BBC Radio,Wednesday November 15, 22:00 (UK time)

  Some updates
# 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!!

  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.
