Rolling stone 29 May 1997

by  David Wild, Rolling Stone, 29. May 1997

It's pretty well established that disco didn't suck, and neither do the Bee Gees. The brothers Gibb -Barry, Robin and the one some people call Maurice- were first unfairly written of in the 60's, when they were tagged as mere Beatles wanna-be's (which they eventually became in the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band movie, which did kinda suck). In 1977 the massive success of Saturday Night Fever soundtrack brought a tidal wave of fame to the Bee Gees. Ever since, they've put out a lot of memorable and, yes, soulful music. The Miami-based power trio's latest outing, Still Waters, is no exception. This month the Bee Gees will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Here's hoping they wear those white suits proudly.

Q: At the height of your '70's overexposure, did you ever get sick of yourselves?
Barry: Yes.
Robin: It wasn't sick of ourselves so much as afraid we were out of c…

Barry's secret Tragedy

Barry's secret Tragedy Bee Gee Barry Gibb talks for the first time about living with the crippling pain of arthritis which once threatened to end his career von David Wigg, The Mirror (London), 24. März 2001


Singing superstar Barry Gibb stands tall, tanned, relaxed and with a welcoming smile on his face beside the porchway of his palatial Buckinghamshire mansion, set in 90 acres of stunning countryside. Rich, famous and happily married, seemingly without a care in the world, you could never imagine there was anything wrong with him. But looks can be deceptive. For years, Barry, a guest on tonight's Parkinson, has been secretly battling a crippling pain which threatened to destroy his successful career with The Bee Gees. At one point, he was afraid he might never be able to play the guitar again. "I suffer from extensive arthritis, so it's pretty much everywhere," says Barry, talking for the first time of the pain he has been living with. "You can…

Barry Gibb brings solo tour to Bay Area

Barry Gibb brings solo tour to Bay AreaBy Jim Harrington may 27 2014


Barry Gibb was riding in his car with his daughter Ali when a familiar tune came on the radio. It was "Night Fever," the disco classic that Gibb's Bee Gees recorded for 1977's "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack. So Ali decided to share the groove with people on the street.

"She turned it up and opened up the window," Barry Gibb recalls during a recent phone interview. "And people started dancing." It was not the first time he had witnessed such a reaction to one of his classic cuts. Indeed, it happens all the time. "Every time one of those ('Saturday Night Fever') songs gets played in a restaurant, the whole atmosphere changes," he says. "Somehow, everyone seems to be able to go back 37 years

Barry Gibb embarks on solo tour, celebrates the Bee Gees
<font color="#ffffff" size="5"></font>

In a phone conversation earlier this month, Barry Gibb talked about all things Bee Gees — from the lives and deaths of his brothers, to finding the strength to return to music, and to that iconic falsetto voice of his that still serves him well.

For the Bee Gees, it wasn’t supposed to be a singular presence. Brothers Barry, and twins Maurice and Robin Gibb, had been performing as a trio since 1959.
It was their iconic three-part harmonies that landed them Grammys and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was the stream of hits — “Stayin’ Alive,” “Jive Talkin’,” “I Started a Joke,” “Words,…

qoutes of Andy Gibb

Songs don't just come out of air. They take time,but its good fun too. Maurice gave me
encouragement.


Before I was terrifies on stage. I only play guitar during the acoustic sings. After a while
you can elicit certain responses from the crowd , like Elvis.

Even my older brothers's early success 10 years ago, didn't change me since there was such
an age difference.

In 1973 we moved to the Britisch Isle of Man and I put my first band together for one year, named
Melody Fair.

Samantha Gibb talks about her father Maurice Gibb

Samantha Gibb talks about her father Maurice Gibb

von Sharon Churcher, Mail on Sunday, 1. Januar 2006

Shuddering with fear, Samantha Gibb clung to her mother’s hand, watching her pop-star father stumble angrily around their new Florida mansion.

Bee Gee Maurice Gibb had told the little girl they had moved to America so he could leave behind the London Club scene he blamed for his wild drinking binges.

But as his rage intensified his daughter, then 11 years-old, immediately recognised the over powering smell on his breath – it was brandy.

Samantha recalls: “Mum and I had been out that night to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous family support group and the moment we came back into the house we could tell Dad had been drinking. He was walking round and round, and then he fell over. When he got up, he had blood on his hands.

“He’d just completely broken down. My mum told me and my brother. “Get your stuff. We’re leaving now.” When we came downstairs again, Dad had a gun and started s…

Maurice Gibb / A little 'Jive Talkin' ' with a Bee Gee

Maurice Gibb / A little 'Jive Talkin' ' with a Bee Gee
©Aidin Vaziri, Special to The Chronicle
Published 4:00 am, Sunday, January 27, 2002 Conclusive evidence that the Bee Gees are indestructible: "Their Greatest Hits," the double-disc set released recently, charts the progress of the English threesome over five decades and countless trends in popular music. Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb were on top of each movement, scoring hits with everything from the folkie jangle of "I Started a Joke" in 1968 through the dance floor royal flush that was the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack in 1977,
on to last year's light- rock staple "This Is Where I Came In." Through it all, the brothers proved impervious to death, addiction and raging egomania. They even survived a close association with John Lennon, as Maurice, 51, recounts.
Q: People don't realize the Bee Gees were major players in the early days.
A: Oh, y…

Former Bee Gees chauffeur tells of sadness at death of Robin Gibb1:30pm Thursday 24th May 2012  By Rene Gerryts                                     The Bee Gees, from left, Maurice, Robin and Barry Gibb                      THE Dorset man who chauffeured the Bees Gees for 35 years has spoken of his sadness at the death of Robin Gibb.
Brian Sanders, 67, said Robin was a genuinely lovely man and would be sadly missed.
Mr Sanders, from Bridport, who drove the superstar group all through their heyday, said: “I used to drive them on all their tours and gigs and airport runs.

“He would never not sign an autograph but he didn’t flaunt himself.”
Mr Sanders became such a close friend he and his f…

Barry Gibb tells of the guilt, remorse and loneliness of being the last of the Bee Gees

By Shanice Brown 4-7-2013

The first time Barry Gibb went on stage to perform solo as the last surviving Bee Gee, he was urged on by his wife Linda. She told him to stop moping over the death of his brothers, get off his backside and make music again.   
Even so, it was a lonely moment. ‘The realisation that my brothers — first Maurice and now Robin — weren’t standing next to me any more made me feel pretty isolated,’ he says.
‘When I looked left or right, they weren’t there with me.
Jive talking: Robin, Maurice and Barry Gibb (left to right) in 1978. Barry has an abiding sadness that his relationship with Maurice and Robin deteriorated to the point where he feels they were no longer friends ‘Maurice’s death in 2003 and Robin’s last year had been a huge trauma for me and everyone in our family. Before that, in 1988, we’d lost our kid brother Andy, who had his own solo career, and my father, Hugh, died soon after.
‘Robin’s much more recent passing had made me depressed, and there were time…

Drummer Beegees in movie

ANOTHER vintage movie will be screened at the Fraser Coast libraries, this time the 1956 Australian film Smiley.
Councillor George Seymour said the film was based on the 1946 novel of the same name by Moore Raymond.
More than 2000 boys auditioned for the lead role, which eventually went to Colin Petersen, a nine-year-old from Kingaroy.
Colin later became the drummer in the Bee Gees, and the first non-Gibb brother in the band

Barry Gibb's grand Nikon at Jones Beach Theater

Barry Gibb's grand Nikon at Jones Beach Theater opening 9:04 AM By \ Glen  Gamboa                
Barry Gibb takes the stage at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach in Wantagh on Friday, May 23, 2014. (Credit: Bruce Gilbert) Barry Gibb’s show at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater last night featured a spectacular special effect that will likely never be duplicated on the rest of his “Mythology” tour.
During the lovely disco-era ballad “How Deep Is Your Love” – just as he reached the famous line “I feel you touch me in the pouring rain” – it began to drizzle. Lucky for the crowd at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater’s opening night, the pouring rain held off until near the end of the show, but the drizzle actually magnified the emotion of Gibb’s heartfelt tribute to his brother Andy, who died in 1988, and his twin brothers in the Bee Gees, Maurice and Robin, who died in 2003 and 2012, respectively.

Often throughout the two-hour show, Gibb l…
