BARRY Gibb cannot wait to return to Redcliffe in September for the opening of Bee Gees Way stage two and is planning a longer stay this time to relive some special childhood memories.
Stage two will be officially opened on September 11 with Barry Gibb headlining a community event as part of Redcliffe Festival celebrations.
“It’s been an honour to be personally involved in this project. I can’t wait to share the day with the community, fans and friends,” he said.
“My memories of my time in Redcliffe are as vivid today as when I was running around barefoot with my brothers exploring its many treasures. It has never left me.”

Cr Sutherland said Mr Gibb planned to spend “quite some time in Redcliffe doing some things in his own space” away from the spotlight. He has apparently made a list of some of the places he wants to visit.
“Just like stage one (which opened in February 2013), Barry has been heavily involved in developing and approving the new concepts and content,” he said.
“The next stage of Bee Gees Way…will take the attraction to a new level and incorporate some of the suggestions we have received from locals and visitors.”
Detailed plans are under wraps but Cr Sutherland said a permanent shade structure spanning the length of Bee Gees Way would be included as would more seating and better signage. When asked if music would be played in the upgraded attraction, Cr Sutherland said the council would “incorporate everything that had been requested of us” without turning it into a “disco”.
The project is expected to cost $2 million, with about half to be spent on practical upgrades such as the shade structure, the other half to be spent on the “Bee Gees component”.
“I wouldn’t do anything if I didn’t think it would be good for the region,” Cr Sutherland said.
He wants people to judge the finished product and said subsequent promotion for the region would prove it was money well spent.

Meaning of Songs

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. 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.

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.
