The independer


Ringo Starr, Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell, and acclaimed author Michael Morpurgo were also named in the 2018 honours list

The Beatles' Ringo Starr and Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb have both been awarded knighthoods in the New Year Honours.
Gibb, who rose to global fame as co-founder and frontman of one of the most successful groups of all time, dedicated the honour to his late brothers and former bandmates, and said he was "deeply honoured, humbled, and very proud".
"This is a moment to be treasured and never forgotten," he added. "I want to acknowledge how responsible my brothers are for this honour. It is as much theirs as it is mine."
His knighthood follows a triumphant set for the Legend Slot at 2017's Glastonbury Festival, where he performed classic hits such as "Stayin' Alive", "Tragedy" and "Night Fever".

BOOK LAUNCH – MANCHESTER

GSI was contacted this week about a new book which will be released the coming week about the area in Manchester where our Brothers Gibb grew up before leaving for Australia.
The writers of the book invited the family through me to be present at the book launch....
The evening will be opened by The Lord Mayor of Manchester and GSI will report about it of course as several of the Gibb Family members are planning to visit this book launch.
The book is called The Quirks of Chorlton-cum-Hardy.
The history of Chorlton from a very different angle, written by local historian Andrew Simpson, together with Manchester artist Peter Topping’s paintings.
This 200 page, full colour title, tells the stories of the unusual, the odd, the bizarre, the eccentric and our much loved Chorlton personalities and quirky buildings.

Singer-Songwriter Barry Gibb Named MTSU Inaugural Fellow

Music icon Barry Gibb easily traced the genealogy of the Bee Gees classic “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?” for more than 900 fans and friends at MTSU’s Tucker Theatre Monday night, Oct 28.
Poignantly recalling his and his late brothers’ love for country music from their Australian childhood, the singer-songwriter-producer gently began picking out a Hank Locklin country classic on his acoustic guitar while talking with Beverly Keel, chair of MTSU’s Department of Recording Industry.
“The first country song I ever recall hearing was Johnny Tillotson’s [cover of] ‘Send Me the Pillow That You Dream On,’” Gibb said. “We only got the one radio station in Australia, and the people we heard classified as ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ were Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash.
“‘Crying’ was the first record I ever bought. … We love country. It all comes from the pathos. We always loved a sad story,” he continued, segueing smoothly into “How Can You Mend,” the brothers Gibb’s first U.S. No. 1 single.
The audience, whic…

Barry Gibb Developing Bee Gees Musical

A Bee Gees musical is in the works, with Universal Theatrical Group securing rights to the legendary band's life story and music. Singer Barry Gibb, the group's only surviving member, will executive produce the as-yet-untitled project.

Their brotherly love and musical savvy turned the beat around to disco, and without Maurice it just won't be the same UTG, Universal's live theater division, secured rights to the musical with Barry Gibb, Yvonne Gibb (wife of the late Maurice Gibb until the singers 2003 death) and the estate of Robin Gibb (who died in 2012). In a statement, Barry Gibb called the project a "wonderful opportunity" for his family.
"I'm personally very excited to be a part of the creative process along with Yvonne and Dwina," he said. "It's another adventure for us and a chance to throw the spotlight on all my brothers and finally the real story of us will be told. It's an honor to be working alongside the people I …

review cd PP Arnold

Anyone who finds Eric Clapton and The Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb stepping up to offer their services as their producer is obviously special. It’s a view reinforced by knowing Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham and Small Faces were already their champions. Only one person fits this unique bill.
P.P. Arnold has had no lack of starry support yet her passage through the music business has been disjointed. The release of The Turning Tide adds to what was known and also plugs gaps. The 13-cut album collects tracks she made with Clapton, Gibb and Elton John associate Caleb Quaye. All but two are previously unissued. While the music itself is as expected – powerful gospel-rooted soul-rock – this is a major release, bolstering the awareness that Arnold was integral to the higher echelons of late-Sixties/early Seventies British rock.


The US-born Pat Arnold – as she was before photographer Gered Mankowitz recast her name to make it more eye catching – arrived in Britain in September 1966 as an I…

Barry Gibb – My Favourite Vinyl

We asked the Bee Gees icon Barry Gibb to dig through his song catalogue and reveal which of his classic hits mean the most to him…Heartbreaker –  1979
“Funnily enough, Dionne Warwick didn’t like Heartbreaker when we first played it to her. She told me, ‘this song doesn’t get me off’.
I diplomatically said, ‘why don’t you do it anyway, and we can always toss it away if you dont like it?’. You have to be pateient in the studio sometimes and this one paid off.”
I Just Want To Be Your Everything – 1977
“This was our young brother Andy’s first No. 1. We never selected who should sing what in the old days, there was no sense of competition, Robin would sing one or I did. The sense of competition came when we had success.
That’s when everyone in the group wanted a bit of individual attention. But this one felt right for Andy and we loved hearing him sing it.”
Barry Gibb – Shadows – 2016
“This is a new one, it’s my Roy Orbison song, the constant drive upwards, like he did with Crying, which I consid…

Larry Gatlin talks about writing with Barry Gibb

2017
DN: You mentioned Barry Gibb. What was it like to co-write with him and other artists.

Gatlin: I wrote 34 top 40 hits for us. I didn’t do the co-writing thing; it wasn’t my deal. When I was in Nashville, it was not that big of a deal, a few people did co-writing. Mickey Newbury was a huge influence on me, and he told me he knew my heart and that I should sing my own songs. He told me if I had a hit and it was somebody else’s song it would break my heart if I had to sing it for years, so that’s how I built my career, and it worked. I’m in the top 10 of artists with number one songs without a co-writer.



Now when Barry Gibb asks you to co-write a song, you ask him where he wants you to be and when. It was a new experience for me and he is such a great friend. The result was “Indian Summer” which we recorded with Roy Orbison. Five years ago, I moved back to Nashville and did some writing with John Rich and Leslie Satcher and some folks. I enjoyed it … a little bit. I am not sure if I’l…

Almost eaten in Miami by an alligator, while me and that dipstick Rodders were shouting at a Bee Gee?

september 24  2017Only on Fools And Horses! DAVID JASON on his pride at the comedy's family appeal


The Christmas special is a simple way to measure the growing success of Only Fools And Horses: in 1982, during the second series, we were obliged to pretend that the Dorset coast was Malaga in order to save money. In 1991, by contrast, we were off to Miami to film in and around the Everglades.


I can safely say without fear of contradiction that this was the first time I had ever acted alongside an alligator. They say you should never work with children or animals, and they may be right. But you should certainly never work with animals that have sharp teeth and snapping jaws. The creature chosen for the part went by the unimaginative stage name of Al the Gator. Al was roughly the length of Ipswich and — in common with many of his kind — had a demeanour that said: ‘Don’t mess with me.’ His ROLE was to take a run at Nicholas Lyndhurst, as Rodney, and me, perched on a log, ready…

THE BEE GEES: The BrandLaureate Premiere Award

september 19 2017

In recognition of their success as a globally acclaimed band, The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF) recently awarded the last surviving member of the group, Barry Gibb, with The BrandLaureate Legendary Award; and on behalf of his band The Bee Gees with The BrandLaureate Premier Award.


Formed in 1958, the trio had their first hit in 1967, and became even more famous with their stirring ballads and catchy dance songs, especially the disco era in the mid-to-late 1970s, with hits like Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, and More Than a Woman from the Saturday Night Fever (1977) soundtrack.

Their earlier hits include: To Love Somebody (1967), I Started a Joke (1968), How Can You Mend a Broken Heart (1971), You Should Be Dancing (1976), Too Much Heaven (1979) and Tragedy (1979) amongst many others.

They wrote all their own hits as well as write and produce for other artists. The group sang recognizable three-part tight harmonies — Robin’s clear vibrato lead vocals were a…

Happy 40th Anniversary to Andy Gibb’s debut album Flowing Rivers, originally released September 9, 1977

Andy Gibb's story is often told with an unfortunate lack of emphasis on his music, except when it fits into a backhanded narrative about 70s kitsch. The fact of the matter is that Andy was exceptionally talented, and his debut album Flowing Rivers brimmed with promise. The majority of the project showcased his original songs, many of which had been written prior to his arrival in the United States where he signed a recording contract in the summer of 1976 with RSO Records. Flowing Rivers was a culmination of about two years' worth of writing and recording, which Andy had begun while living and working in Australia—a training ground strongly suggested by his older brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice as the experience was a critical catalyst in the evolution of the Bee Gees.


At the helm of those early sessions was famed Australian singer, songwriter, and producer Col Joye, who had, intriguingly, also produced his brothers' debut single, "The Battle of the Blue and The…

Ronan Keating has reflected on the amazing time he spent working with Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb in the late 90s

Ronan Keating says getting to spend a week writing songs with Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb was an "amazing experience".

The former Boyzone singer was involved in the recording of the disco legends' compilation LP 'Love Songs' and co-wrote and produced the song 'Lovers and Friends' in 1999 with Barry and his late brother Maurice, who sadly died four years later at the age of 53.

Speaking during his first ever Breakfast Show for Magic Radio on Monday (04.09.17), Ronan recalled: "We spent five days away together writing and recording. It goes without saying how special The Bee Gees are and for me to work and spend time with Barry who's such a legendary writer is always such an amazing experience."

The Bee Gees - which also included the late Robin Gibb, who died of cancer in Mary 2012 - released the album consisting of all of their ballads in 2005 and it features some lesser known hits including 'Secret Love' and 'For Whom the Bell Tolls&…

Stockton schoolboy vows to help terminally ill dad by releasing Bee Gees charity single

AN EIGHT-year-old boy is determined to make his terminally ill father proud by releasing a poignant charity single penned by former Bee Gee, Barry Gibb.
Schoolboy Callum Lane-Tingle vowed to raise £5,000 for Cancer Research UK after his dad, Andrew Tingle, was given a devastating diagnosis that he has only months to live.
Mr Tingle, a 47-year-old operations director, had a kidney and his adrenal gland removed in April 2016, but doctors discovered last month that his cancer had spread to his lungs, pancreas and lymph nodes and was now incurable.
However, his young son, a pupil at Stockton’s Fairfield Primary School, decided to enlist the help of seasoned North-East singer, Keith Hammersley, who has recorded his version of the moving Bee Gees song, Morning Of My Life.




Middlesbrough-born crooner, Mr Hammersley, who has performed alongside Bob Monkhouse, Bradley Walsh and Des O’Connor, said: “It is a very touching song and it really registers with the remarkable charity work of young Callu…

With superstardom calling, this fabulous foursome leaves Heartland—and Billy’s beloved Strawberry Fields (Sandy Farina)—vulnerable to mean Mr. Mustard, who steals Sgt.
