Stars hold one last big bash for showbiz legend Robert Stigwood

The stars will come out one last time for impresario Robert Stigwood, who masterminded the careers of the Bee Gees and Eric Clapton, among many others.
Among the expected guests are Clapton, Oscar-winning lyricist Sir Tim Rice, who spoke at his funeral, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb.
Australian-born Stigwood arrived in Britain in 1959 with £5 and began working as an agent putting actors into television commercials.
He went on to produce films, as well as countless West End and Broadway musicals including Hair, Oh! Calcutta! and Jesus Christ Superstar.Known to friends and enemies as ‘Stiggy’, he was not always blessed with success. His failures include the 1978 film version of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.His partnership with the Bee Gees turned sour in 1980, when they ended their 12-year relationship and sued him for £31 million, claiming he used their talents to create his fortune. However, Stigwood bounced back in the late Nineties — with the 1996…

Barry Gibb signed new record deal title new album In the Now RELEASE NOV 2016

Barry Gibb has signed a new record deal, just days after stealing the show at Glastonbury as he joined Coldplay on stage.
The legendary Bee Gee has sealed the deal with Columbia Records (RCA in the UK) and will release his first album with them, In The Now, this autumn.
The record sees Gibb – the only surviving member of the Bee Gees – keeping it in the family as he has written all the songs with his sons Stephen and Ashley.
It’ll be only the second solo effort of his career – and his first album of all-new material since the Bee Gees’ final studio album was released in 2001.
‘This is a dream come true for me. It’s a new chapter in my life,’ Gibb said.

Bee Gee Barry Gibb in emotional return to former Manchester home and school

30 september 2013:



The last of the Bee Gees, Barry Gibb, has made an emotional return to the childhood haunts where he first learned to sing with his late brothers.
The 67-year-old sat on the steps of the semi-detached house in Keppel Road, Chorlton, where he spent hours perfecting harmonies with Maurice and Robin in the 1950s.

Barry also visited Oswald Road Primary School, where all three brothers were pupils, and delighted staff and children by touring the classrooms and inspecting building work.
He took his trip down memory lane after a triumphant solo concert at Manchester's Phones4U Arena on Sunday night.

On his way into the classroom, he stopped to sign autographs and shake hands with the children who were chanting his name as he got out of his car, and he also answered some of their questions.
One pupil asked whether he used to have school dinners or a packed lunch back in the day – to which he replied that he took a packed lunch of sugar sandwiches.

Barry also brought along three…

The tree Gees : How much i love you with Lyrics

(lyrics and music Alex Sammarini)
Here in that place of the heart
where some fears live from the start
I hear things left unsaid
creatures of the pain
we see the storm within our house
universes that collide
why I made you cry again
when I wish I could say

how much I love you
how much I care about you
how much I love you
but this could be our last goodbye

kiss the flames and feel the cold
it's the strangest kind of love
angry again, words in vain
when wish we could say

how much I love you
how much I care about you
how much I love you
but this could be our last goodbye

I can't hide from this cruel desire
cause it's a feeling that can keep me alive
until we'll take our lives
to change them inside
and open the hearts, close the doors to doubts

and if tomorrow I could say goodbye
you know that could be something else in my mind
something else to say like

how much I love you
how much I care about you
how much I love you
but this could be our last goodbye

a big thank you to Alex Sammarini for sharing the …

Bee Gees : Personalities:

Personalities:
Barry Gibb: "I can take life seriously and as a joke, because I believe that the moment we're born, we're dying, and there's no use going through it looking miserable! Don't let yourself be dragged down by your own moods; just enjoy what you've got." (1968)Maurice Gibb: "Barry's blast-offs don't bother me, purely because half of what he says doesn't really mean anything. What I mean is that what he says is true, but he exaggerates it." (Disc and Music Echo, 1969) Barry Gibb: "I'm very much a family person. I just love the feeling a close family gives you and I wouldn't change it for anything. I've never been into parties, premieres or night-clubbing. I much prefer staying at home with the wife and kids, watching TV or reading a book. I'm Mr Boring, not a party-goer at all." (1998)Robin Gibb: "I think I'm more of a thinker. I'm less trivial about things than probably I …
