Barry Gibb reveals his long-lost Grease demo for film's 40th anniversary

Writing a hit song can take weeks, months, even years. But sometimes, it turns out, it’s possible to crank ‘em out in a couple of hours. Which is exactly what happened when Barry Gibb was asked to write the title track for 1978’s original high-school musical, Grease.
On the eve of a new 40th anniversary edition of the film on 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and digital, which is stuffed with more extras than the background of a Rydell High song-and-dance number, we not only spoke to Gibb about recording his still-infectious hit single “Grease” (sung by Frankie Valli in the film), but also landed an exclusive listen to the eldest Bee Gee’s long-lost demo tape of the song. You can listen to it on:

When we spoke with the 71-year-old Gibb, he was at a disadvantage. He still hadn’t heard the demo in the four decades since he recorded it. But his memory of how the song came about was so clear, he didn’t have to. “I rem…

Hear Kacey Musgraves' Bee Gees-Inspired New Song, 'High Horse'

Kacey Musgraves  will release her fourth studio album, Golden Hour, on March 30, and she's giving fans another early listen with a new song called "High Horse." This funky jam is a departure from the traditional sound most country fans expect from the singer, featuring infectious beats that bring the Bee Gees to mine. Zane Lowe of Beats 1 on Apple Music spoke with the singer about the fun jam, which Musgraves admits "was a freaking blast" to write and record. "I had this title for a while," she says. "We all know that character that is just a little high of themselves. They're just a little bit arrogant. I had this title sitting around for a long time and I have my own ideas about who it's about. Everyone has that character in their life and then I got to write it and oh my gosh, it is the most fun ever."
Musgraves says she was "on a huge Bee Gees kick" when she was making the album and she was intrigued by the idea of a world…

New Compilation Pop Career Of Andy Gibb

The spectacularly successful career of the late Andy Gibb is commemorated on the new CD and digital collection The Very Best Of Andy Gibb, to be released on 13 April by Capitol/UMe. From 9 March, pre-orders of the digital album will include instant download and streaming access to his duet version of Gerry Goffin and Carole King’s ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow,’ with seasoned soul songstress P.P. Arnold.
The 15-track collection includes all three of his US No. 1 singles, ‘I Just Want To Be Your Everything,’ ‘Shadow Dancing’ and ‘(Love Is) Thicker Than Water.’ All three of those chart-toppers were achieved during a tumultuous 11-month period in 1977 and ’78, in which he was part of the unprecedented adulation afforded Gibb and his Bee Gee brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin.
The three further US top ten hits that followed that sequence, ‘An Everlasting Love,’ ‘(Our Love) Don’t Throw It All Away’ and ‘Desire,’ which featured the Bee Gees, are also on the compilation. It also features Andy’s ne…

Peta Gibb remembering her dad Andy

Peta Gibb Weber: 
"I choose to remember my father today, March 5, on what should have been his 60th birthday. I wish he was here to celebrate with us and to be the dad to me, the husband to my mother, the pop to his grandchildren and the mate to my husband that we have all needed but he was never given the chance to be. 
I won't be commenting further on the 10th. I prefer not to commemorate the events of 30 years ago, events that never should have happened in the first place, took away a young life with so much unfulfilled potential far too soon and caused so much unnecessary pain. What happened in March 1988 remains etched clearly in my mind forever but I have no further wish to talk about it publicly. Just please know that I am now absolutely at peace with how things turned out but I will never forget. 
So, happy birthday to my father in heaven. For me personally, this time is not a time for celebration. It is about making sure what happened to Andy Gibb (and too, too many ot…
