Barry Gibb interviewed by Live

How many secrets do your brothers know about you that they hang over your head?
BARRY GIBB: I think it's the other way around.

Q: Really? You're the good brother?
BARRY GIBB: No, but how many secrets do I know about them?

Q: So this is what keeps the group together?
BARRY GIBB: I'd have to say, without a doubt, it's a pure love of pop music and the fact that we're a family that's knit together.

Q: Can you still fit in the old Bee Gees clothes?
BARRY GIBB: No. My waist is 32, but in those days I was about 29 to 30.

Q: There were no scandals were there?
BARRY GIBB: No, not like the Jacksons or situations like that. I think there was a small one when Robin got a divorce in England. But I don't remember anything you would call a scandal.

Q: What do you collect?
BARRY GIBB: Now there's a scandal. I can't tell you.

Q: The largest porn collection in Florida?
BARRY GIBB: You said it, I didn't.

Q: This could only do good for your image! Didn't that one night concert put a lot of pressure on you?
BARRY GIBB: Enormous. The only thing I don't want to do is a tour. I'm a 50 year old man, jumping out of bed each morning and getting on a place is no longer feasible for me. I have a condition that is pretty arthritic. It's one of 100 different kinds of arthritis, and I have to deal with that.

Q: Do you force yourself to listen to new music?
BARRY GIBB: No. I do like the Hansons, though. I think they're very talented. I think they're going to surprise a lot of people in the next 10 years. When I see the Hansons, I see us as kids.

Q: Do you ever feel embarrassed by your music because of the criticism? Did you ever wish you were the Rolling Stones?
BARRY GIBB: I don't ever wish I was somebody else. I know that I am meant to be who I am, and I'm meant to have my own destiny. Whenever that takes me, I'm sensible enough to accept it no matter what it is. My music, certainly, has never embarrassed me.
