Bee Gees: Barry Gibb about passing of Robert Stigwood

Barry Gibb issued the following statement:

 "Robert Stigwood was an enigma. A victorian figure cast into the sixties to work with Brian Epstein and The Beatles. He hitch hiked from Adelaide to London with a powerful vision to rule the entertainment world. 
He was almost aristocratic in nature, the mixture of talent and insight from the moment you met him was omnipresent.
 He signed us as his group at a moment in time when groups were no longer being signed.
 The odds against us having success was very high but Robert took an act of faith and against the advice of others, became our manager. 

He also became a member of our family and all the success we had was because of Robert Stigwood. On behalf of Linda and our family we wish you god speed. 
Every time the first of May comes around I will think of you and I will miss your phone call. 
We shared so many wonderful moments.

 I will never forget you my dear friend." 

Barry Gibb

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.
