Message Dwina Gibb

Welcome back to RobinGibb.com.

It has been over two years since Robin passed away, and it was appropriate for the website to go dark for a period of time. It is now time to re-launch the website to coincide with a wonderful new solo album from Robin, 50. St Catherine’s Drive.

I am thankful to all of Robin’s fans who were loyal to him throughout his life, and who I hope will continue to follow and support the activities and releases by Robin going forward. The website has been redesigned as an information based site, rather than an interactive forum. I will keep it updated as frequently as possible, and I hope you are as happy as I am that the website is active again.


Robin was a poet, a songwriter, a composer, a bard and a wonderful human being who serenaded the world with his unique voice. I feel as if I have had the most fortunate romantic life possible, living in the presence of genius and listening to the creation of beautiful songs that both he and his brothers produced that are the soundtracks of millions of lives over the past decades. Robin, I can only say thank you for the love and inspiration you have bestowed on me and on the world.

Forever, Dwina Gibb ***

That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

BARKER OF THE UFO (1967)
MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.

“New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones)”
Written by Barry and Robin Gibb (1967)
Performed by Bee Gees


The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…
