In the seventies Barry had his own fan club for a while: the Barry Gibb Fan club and this fan club published a small booklet with Barry's poems, in November 1971, for all the fans to read.
In those days I corresponded with the secretary of that fan club and she was the one who wrote this preface in his poem-booklet.
GSI is now publishing the Barry Gibb Poems in the on-line newsletter We Are One.
Hope you'll like reading them.
