Titanic live concerts

TITANIC LIVE CONCERT is a show written and produced by Robin Gibb, a member of the legendary Bee Gees, who died prematurely the May 20, 2012, together with his younger son, RJ GIBB.
The project aims to pay homage to the victims of the sinking of the Titanic, the "unsinkable" ship, which sailed on April 10, 1912 from the English harbour of Southampton and sank five days later in the freezing cold and deep waters of the North Atlantic, after hitting against a massive iceberg.
The symphonic concert becomes a unique spectacle in the genre.

PETER GABRIEL:"I tried to sing a bit like Robin Gibb on the second verse (of Genesis' Silent Sun) I'm sure we would have denied it at the time"
PAUL McCARTNEY:"It was the 'mining disaster' song that Robert Stigwood played me. I said 'sign them, they're great! And they went on to be even greater"

COMMENTS ABOUT THE BEE GEES

ROBERT STIGWOOD(Bee Gees manager from 1967 to 1980)
Reporter: Mr. Stigwood, what do the fans of the Bee Gees find appealing about them?

Stigwood: This might sound corny, but it is their poetry. These boys are completely uneducated. They don't even know how to spell. They write the lyrics out spelled phonetically. And the simple poetry appeals to the public.

Robin: We start with a title. The rest just flows from there. It's like a spiritual thing when we write. We know what the other one is thinking. Lonely Days was written in 10 minutes.

Lulu Learned To Write Music By Watching The Bee Gees At Work

The Shout hitmaker, who was married to the late pop star for four years from 1969, reveals the 1970s icons taught her how to pen tracks.
She tells Britain's Attitude magazine, "I first got master classes in songwriting when I was married to Maurice - I used to sit and watch the Bee Gees write at home... So that's where I learned. I never wrote with Maurice, my brother did. I was slow, but I finally got there."
