September 26. 2021.
I feel like it's time to be honest about something that I should have been much earlier,
especially considering I watched my mother be such an advocate for mental health and many stigmas regarding certain conditions for so many years. I have also watched my mother battle Lupus, something she wasn't diagnosed with until a little later in life, because it wasn't generally diagnosed when she was young. It is a process of elimination as most auto immune conditions are, and she had simply been told that she just had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis since was a teenager.
Over the years I have experienced one of my closest friends suffer from seizures when she was very young. It turned out to be a large brain tumor and I helped her through her first surgery, then chemotherapy and radiation. A couple of surgeries later, she's doing well, but still has moments and still has seizures of some kind.
I recently, as some of you know, did a photo series with my friend Lou. We'd discussed it for a while, and as I said before, her bravery, courage and honesty moved me. To bare herself that way, discuss her past, to talk about suicide and her scars was obviously difficult to do, even if it felt liberating to her and raising awareness to help others. I would be a hypocrite if I didn't do the same.
In addition to what I just said, a new friend of mine's partner recently suffered from a seizure.
Another very young friend of mine may be battling an auto immune condition of some kind that is yet unknown. I myself spent a couple of years dealing with a severe auto immune diagnosis that turned out to be false. Maybe. Again it's a process of elimination and lots of poking and prodding. Story for another time. But the limbo and not knowing is traumatic.
Which is why I have to speak out and confess something I rarely talk about, except with close friends, and even then keep it light and simple. I've never made it public until now. I think the stigma around it made me keep it close to the vest so to speak, and given how vocal I am about so many things, I do feel like a hypocrite.
I have epilepsy. The first seizure I had that I am aware of was in my early 20's and have had many since. It is not a pleasant experience and often requires hospitalization. Also every type of seizure disorder is different, and symptoms vary from person to person, but rest assured it is scary no matter who you are. Medication has been incredible.
I was seizure free for roughly seven years until I broke my leg recently. In the aftermath of the emergency surgery and anesthesia,
I ended up having two seizures back to back and was in the Emergency Room in the middle of a pandemic. A remider that it can come back and bite you in the ass just when you feel confident.
Many incidents around seizures involve underlying conditions, but if you just generally suffer from epilepsy, then sleep deprivation, stress, or the illusion of it can be a major trigger. It is why I no longer work 18 hours a day on a project and do my best to take care of myself more. While also accepting that I need the medication and that it is not a weakness. It is not a stigma. Psychologically I battle this everyday. There is always a fear I'll wake up in an ambulance not remembering how I got there or what happened.
Some of the greatest minds and inspirations suffered from this, which gives me comfort. Einstein. It never let him get the better of him. Prince, who defied the condition, danced his as off every night and wrote ten songs a day. The list goes on. That was also a generation that felt it was stigmatizing to discuss. I think I did too.
So now you know. It doesn't stop me. It doesn't cripple me. It only makes me stronger. If you have epilepsy or any other seizure disorder, know that you are not alone and that you can talk about it. There is help. You can fight it and turn it into a strength.
I'm happy for the inspiration to bring this up, while also a little embarrassed that I haven't done so sooner. Thanks for listening.

Memorial service Bernice Barbara Gibb Rhoades
Bernice "Berry" Gibb Rhoades (daughter of Lesley Gibb and wife of Chino Rhoades) passed away at home peacefully on April 15th 2021.
On April 23, 2021 GSI mentioned that a
memorial service would be planned later on for Bernice (on September 29, 2021, her birthdate) because of travel restrictions during the Covid pandemic.
However GSI received the information the ceremony has been postponed to April next year due to once again rising Covid rates and difficulties of travel. It will most likely be at her one year anniversary of her passing.

GSI - Gibb Family Tree
In answer to many questions about the Gibb Family and family tree......
All 4 of Barry's sons and Ali carry the name 'Crompton'
As well as Ashley's son Lucas, Travis's son Liam and Michael's son Damien
The grand children's names are traditionally chosen by their own parents and for instance in case of Angus: Stephen and Gloria included her family name 'Levas'.
Barry, Robin and Maurice were all married twice. Only Molly (first wife of Robin, married 12/04/1968 ) is mentioned in the family tree as she and
Robin became parents of 2 Gibb kids: Spencer Gibb and Melissa Gibb.
Barry's first wife was Maureen Bates (married 08/22/1966 ) and Maurice was first married to Lulu, (02/18/1969), the British singer.
Her full and official name is: Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie.
Recently we reported about Nick Endacott, who not long ago found out that he's a son of Maurice Gibb and biological mother Patti Nolder, born in 1968.
Not mentioned in the Family Tree, he didn't get the name Gibb then. He was adopted.
The article posted in April 2021 on GSI explains the whole story.
'Crompton' comes from Samuel Crompton, a famous ancestor of the Gibbs and the inventor of the spinning machine the so called: mule-jenny which revolutionized the English cotton industry in the 19th century.
However important his invention was for England, Crompton hardly profited from it.
He was born in Firwood near Bolton on the 3rd of December 1753 as son of a farmer. In 1779 he invented the spinning mule.
He was too poor to apply for a patent and so he sold the rights to a Bolton manufacturer.
Although a lot of factories started using his machine, Crompton wasn`t getting any of the profits.
Finally in 1812 the House Of Commons rewarded him with 5000 Pounds for his invention.
He used the money to invest in a cotton factory but the venture ended in failure.
Crompton died in poverty in Bolton, June 26th 1827.

A proud Robin John, Megan and of course grandma Dwina show us the new little Gibb.
12 weeks old now.
"We have three Gibb brothers under one roof again," says Megan, 41, alluding to the famous Bee Gees - brothers Robin, Maurice and Barry. "Olie can certainly hit the high notes right now."
Adds RJ: "He likes being sung to, too, and when he holds his thumbs between his fingers, he reminds me of my father, who did this when he was deep in thought."
The family is planning another big celebrating in the future..... a wedding.
A week before Olie was born, RJ presented Megan with a Tiffany & Co heart-shaped platinum and diamond commitment ring to mark their ten-year relationship.
"The diamonds represent the love we have for each other and our children and our strength as a family," says Megan.
"It's a pre-engagement ring," RJ adds, smiling. "When we get married, we'll have all our children around us."
The hard copy of the magazine will be out on the 16th. of August.

A New Gibb Child.
Yes, finally I can post about this good Gibb news!!!
Robin John and Megan are expecting another baby.
I couldn't believe my ears when Megan told me last year she was pregnant again and that she is due around May 20 is more than special!
Best wishes for them and their family from GSI.
We'll keep you posted. More on GSI Facebook group.

Who Is Nick Endacott
Marion: "Many of you will have followed the stories the past years and recently read about it on our GSI Facebook group too.
We decided not to publish about it until now but GSI and The Gibb Family as well as Nick want you to know the truth, although this is a personal matter.
In answer to many questions being asked the past few days and many suggestions made and situations assumed on different social media, I'd like to answer herewith all your questions concerning Nick.
Quite some years ago already I was contacted by Nick and his partner. He was in search of his biological father and he sought certainty mainly about his medical history which was getting important.
As good as possible I helped him to get in touch with The Gibb Family.
More recently he finally found where he was looking for.
So Nick didn't find out till late on in his life that Maurice was his father due to a DNA match on ancestry from more than one family member.
It was also not until late on his life due to circumstances that he found out there might be a possibility he would be family of Maurice Gibb.
Although he has no claim on the family as he was adopted as a baby and raised in a another family with a loving mother, father and siblings, but...
he has been welcomed in the Gibb family by various family members already who think that it is no fault of his, or indeed not Maurice's either,
who had no knowledge of his existence at all and no one is even sure if his biological mother knew that Maurice could have been the father.
Nick said: 'It has been such a long hard journey, but this has finally given me closure and I have a new found belief in myself from knowing my identity.'
He added: 'I've never been interested in money and as I was legally adopted I would have no claim anyway.
I just wanted to know who my dad is.'
Knowing his medical history now also makes certain things clear to him.
Nick grew up with lots of interest in music and is working in the music business, so that's not strange.
At the moment he is even busy on a project with Bernice's sister Debbie (one of the daughters of Lesley Gibb Evans ). Plans are to release a single together.
GSI will keep you updated about this project of course.
About 8 years ago already Nick and his partner became members of GSI themselves."

RIP Bernice Gibb Rhoades
- Bernice was as young girl keen to be an actress, she went to the Debbie Reynolds School of Arts at the age of 12.
She met husband Chino as a young Marine and they lived happily in Nevada for 31 years.
A post-mortem is expected to be held into her death but her family believes she suffered a heart attack.
- Memorial service plans for Bernice, September 29.
A memorial service will be held on Beri's birthday but, because of travel restrictions during the pandemic, her mother Lesley, who lives in Australia, is unsure whether she will be able to attend.

A message from Chino, the husband of Bernice.
There is a gigantic hole in my heart. My wife of 31 years Berry Gibb-Rhoades, sang her last note on this earth on April 15th, 2021
and passed away peacefully with our dog by her side. Her passion for singing was only bested by the caring of our dogs and of me.
(Yes in that order) She was born September 29th, 1964 in Sydney, Australia to Lesley Gibb. She was adopted and raised by (Dad) Hugh Lesley Gibb and (Mum)
Barbara Gibb. I am sure her Brother Andy Gibb had a hand in that too. I feel a little better knowing that she is joined in Heaven by Dad, Mum, Andy, Maurice and Robin as well as our 5 pups.
My heart goes out to the entire Gibb, Evans and my family as she was taken from us way too soon. I want to thank all the family, friends and fans for the outpour of heart felt condolences.
As we had rescued 5 dogs in our life together, in lieu of flowers, I know that she would appreciate a donation to the
Heaven Can Wait Society. www.hcws.org/donate I will end this message with a link to a song that she recorded shortly before we met and we
danced our first dance to as husband and wife. https://youtu.be
Bernice GIBB-RHOADES's obituary:
Some of the many family reactions I received:
Lesley: "it's just surreal and so unfair".
I think, I've realised there is so many close family members who don't even know each other, it's sad for the children to not know each other,
to talk and know each other's sad times and happy times, family is precious and goes on forever, life is very short.
Chino: "Nothing will ever fill the hole I now have in my heart but the condolences help protect it."
Adam: I have amazing memories from my teenage years of flying around on the boat with her and Ashley. She was always so amazing with my Nana as well. She will be missed and fondly remembered.
Samantha: My heart is grieving but all the talks, stories, and the laughter we shared I will keep in my heart forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful, sweet, kind, Aunt Berry. I will miss you.
Stephen: The entire family mourns now as we have lost our beloved "Berri"

Rest in peace - Bernice Gibb Rhoades
Very sad news from The Gibb Family, that reached me in the very early hours
of April 16. (Dutch time)
Bernice, Lesley's eldest daughter has suddenly passed away.
Our condolences go to Bernice's husband Chino, to her mother Lesley and family, to the Rhoades family and to all Gibb family members.
This is unbelievable, so suddenly and much too young.
I have sent condolences to husband Chino, to the Gibb Family, and of course to mother Lesley and family.
They are all heartbroken. It is a tragedy.
Lesley: "it's just surreal and so unfair".
Bernice immediately felt ill after her second Pfizer jab and went to bed. Husband Chino found her hours later when she had passed away.
Like always I will keep you updated on the Facebook group where you can also write down a message to the family.
Bernice Barbara ("Beri") Gibb, was born September 29, 1964 in Sydney, Australia.
She passed away: April 15, 2021, Las Vegas, USA.

Concerning RJ's problems, we hope to get it all righted again. Thank you for your amazing assistance.

A photo of grandson Teddy enjoying the lovely weather, the beautiful area of Prebendal and..... in this hot weather: the pool, was sent to me by mother Megan.
The Gibb family is trying to deal with this problem like we all and GSI has been keeping you updated the past month about the situation of Barry's, Maurice's and Robin's families in these special times.
The situation in Florida doesn't allow people to do much outside their homes yet like before and also Barry and Maurice's family do not see all their family and friends now regularly but the families are okay.
Robin's family mostly has been staying at the Prebendal grounds the past few months.
Here a part of a private mail I received this week from Dwina:
Dwina: ".............I have started compiling a series of short amusing Irish stories to make a collection.
I also decided to finish the trilogy of Cormac. The last book is called The Sage. And I am wading through the autobiography/ biography of Robin's...
so it is work, work, work now after all the schoolwork we had during the lockdown.
The children are growing so much and they seem happy. The weather has been astonishingly good so the kids have had the pool experience and they are swimming well now with their Daddy.
We grew lots of vegetables this year and I baked Irish bread.
The chard and beetroot and carrots were all organic and delicious.
The apple and pear trees and plum trees are all fruiting.... the apples perhaps a bit later, and I have a grape vine producing lovely grapes...not ready until September/ October.
I haven't missed going out, and luckily the grandchildren are right here with me. I am glad you are able to see the children again.
I am sending you two of my little Irish stories............"

GSI UPDATE - THE FIRES IN AUSTRALIA
GSI received a lot of mails and messages asking about the situation of the Gibb family members at the moment who are living in Australia.
January 1. 2020.
Marion: 'Wednesday I heard from the families:
Gibbs / Evans family:
'The fires have been soul destroying The air is so thick with smoke Another 7 people died today Just heartbreaking'.
Gibb / Weber family:
'The fires are again very bad, especially in our south coast area, about four hours from Sydney but a place we like to go for our holidays. It is a very frightening time but we are still okay where we are!!'
January 4. 2020: New message from The Gibb Family in Miami to GSI:
'Last we heard from Lesley, everyone was ok during the Christmas period, however reaching out again as conditions seem to be deteriorating in certain areas this weekend.'
- Latest update to me from the Gibbs in Miami concerning the situation about their family in Australia:
'The family are all a safe and as things stand not too close to any bush fires, although the air quality is really bad and the temperature there today was 118 degrees'.

Peta: 'We headed north with the fam. and the puggies to escape this horror show.
Dear Marion Adriaensen, happy for you to post this on GSI if you think it may move people to do something practical in support of the fires right now. We need more than prayers where possible!

I need to look for the good happening around us to manage my anxiety at this time. I am so grateful for the volunteer men and women of our

GSI GOES BACK IN TIME ......The wedding of the year
Source: Barry Gibb Fan Club news letter, Christmas 1970.
Not only Barry's birthday again today........
CONGRATULATIONS and many, many happy returns!!!!
Also Barry and Linda's wedding anniversary: congrats to both of them from GSI.
I think Tuesday 1st September 1970 is the best birthday Barry has ever had. The ceremony took place at Caxton Hall in London. It wasn't until the previous
Thursday that they decided to get married and on the Monday both Barry and Lynda were in Zurich as Barry was appearing on Swiss TV.
Their plane, on Tuesday morning was at 7 a.m. which meant that they had to be up at 5 a.m. It was a good thing that Dave
Dee was there because if it wasn't for him they would have never got to the airport in time.
The wedding itself was at 2 p.m.
Barry and Lynda arrived in Barry's white Rolls Convertable with John Stevens (of Carnaby Street) who was Best Man and Lynda's sister-in-law who was
Maid Of Honour. Barry was very cool, calm and collected during the ceremony but poor Lynda was so nervous that she got the words wrong - even Barry's names!.
Afterwards, when the photographs were being taken, a fight broke out between a reporter and a policeman. In one of the wedding photos
(taken at that exact time) the expression on Barry's face has to be seen to be believed!.
Lynda's dress was white, floor length with a heavy crocket lace over-slip and Barry's suit was single-breasted with a waistcoat in a small blue checked material.
The wedding cake was in the shape of a horse shoe!!
The guests invited to the small reception afterwards included: Dave Dee (of course!) , Peter Wyngarde, Barry Ryan, Lynda's family, Mr and Mrs. Gibb, Andy, Berri
(Barry's niece), Maurice and Lulu and Robin., Robert Stigwood, Vince Melouney and his wife Christina, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson (scriptwriters for artists e.g. Frankie Howerd). ,
David Wigg and of course the doggies: Snoopy and Barnaby.
The presents included: silver tea set, saucepans, 4 canteens of cutlery , 2 clocks (one from John Stevens in unbelievable),
a dinner set, paper weights, candle sticks and a decanter, 4 table lighters, blankets, sheets, table cloths, a bed quilt, kitchen scales,
a lamp, a suite of furniture, glass fish ornaments and a Hummel ornament.
For being Best Man Barry gave John Stevens a pair of cufflinks: gold with a ruby stone and for being Maid Of Honour Lynda gave
Shirley gold earings with a topaze stone and a matching compact and parfume spray.
Thet haven't had a honeymoon as yet but they book up to stay in a hotel room for the wedding night as Lynda's family were staying at Eaton Square.
Barry and Lynda drove all over London to find the hotel but to no avail..... they ended up back at home in the two spare single beds.

Finding back those old photos with so many precious memories.
Peta wanted to share this one with all of us.
Posted on GSI with permission of Peta Weber (daughter of Andy Gibb).
Peta: 'Memories Monday!
Finally got this photo out of a frame where it's been sitting for ages.
This is a special photo for me because it brings my father into one of my worlds - dog shows! Here he is, an average guy,
around 1975 I think, not sure where (maybe Fairfield) with the Showaquipment bus in the background.
It's a piece of history. Xx'

Today is the birthday of Peta, (daughter of Kim and Andy).
GSI would like to wish her and her family a really wonderful day: Happy Birthday dear Peta.
Marion / GSI xxx
Like promissed before, from now on GSI will be posting mails from Peta now and then.
She is, like quite some other Gibb family members, following GSI website and facebook and by way of posting a mail now and again she'd like to be in touch with all the fans of her father.
Please do not copy and paste text and/or photo material from her and her family posted on GSI to other groups or websites and so respect the privacy of the family.
This way we hope to continue sharing with you Peta's mails regularly, thank you.

Hi Marion and all the fans at GSI,
We are all doing very well. Life is very busy! I realise many of the fans don't know too much about me,
so I thought this was a good chance for a family update and also an opportunity to correct some misconceptions.
So, a bit about me. I originally trained at university to become a journalist as I love to write, and I worked in that field for a while in my twenties.
I then returned to university to study education, and that has become my great passion. I have been in literacy education for 12 years now,
and work as a senior teacher coordinating programs for low-literacy and disengaged high school students,
which is so rewarding and I absolutely love it. I am now studying towards my masters degree in education, as well as working full time,
so I have my hands full right now. My boys are growing up healthy and well.
Darby is doing very well at school and is an up and coming junior tennis player who is sports mad, just like his dad!
Flynn will start school AND turn 5 in coming weeks, which he is very excited about. He is a little dog lover, just like me,
and he is also looking forward to playing in our local soccer team for the first time this year.
Matt and I are very committed to giving the boys a private and normal upbringing out of the limelight, just as I was raised,
and I'm sure everyone respects this, but we are happy to provide a picture and little update for everyone on GSI every now and then as I understand people are interested in seeing Andy's grandkids.
I still very much love dogs, but am not (and never have been) a professional dog breeder.
Showing dogs has always been very much a hobby. We have a pug puppy named Star,
that we love very much, and I do still occasionally judge dog shows, but as a busy working and studying mum,
I don't have much time for that these days. I still write, and I do the odd bit of freelance journalism for certain publications on the topics of education and parenting.
I also enjoy singing, and have sung in choirs and choral groups most of my life, performing regularly and gaining joy and friendship in the process of coming together with others through music.
Kind wishes to all of you, always, and thank you all for remembering my father and keeping all of us in your thoughts. Here are some photos of our family on a recent ski trip.
All the best, talk soon, Peta

Family News, January 20 - 2017.
Some latest things Dwina told me about her work and the grandchildren.
Dwina to GSI: 'In Ireland my mother, my sister and my brother all live within a mile or two of each other. Such a close community.
I have written poems and plays and dialogues about all the characters who lived in this area...and now I have been asked to submit my works to join with other poets and writers to create a book.
Because we grew up in Northern Ireland, we had to take a lot of care in what we wrote or spoke about at the time.
Now, as time passes and many of the characters have died, all our works are being recognized in the area.
This is special for me, because I felt as if I was part of the recording process, without realizing it. I began writing when I was a child.
Little Maxwell who is only three can spell his name and writes words on the computer...he has discovered that he can write and print out what he writes!
It is so incredible to watch him doing this on his own... how I would have loved to have had a computer as a child, but they were not in existence.
I was a teenager before I saw a typewriter. Even little Teddy (Theo) has discovered the mobile phone. It is a different world!'
Gibb Children's Tribute To Their Fathers
We've already mentioned the news of this new project: an album with Bee Gees classics will be recorded by the children of the 4 Gibb Brothers.
There is not much known yet about the album and no release date set yet but GSI is in contact with the -Gibb Collective- ( all the Gibb children who are working on this project together)
and will of course keep everyone informed about these great plans on GSI website and GSI Facebook group. The release date is planned for this year.
Of many of the Gibb kids we knew already their involvement in music. It specially is a surprise that also Andy's daughter Peta Weber is participating.
She's enthusiastic about it. She recently told GSI: "Singing is very much a hobby for me, I have no ambitions for a career".
The whole project more or less started with the idea of Sam, Maurice and Yvonne's daughter.
The Gibb children's tribute to their fathers is very much Sam's Baby so to say.
She came up with the idea some time ago and worked hard over many months to coordinate everything and everyone.
We are very much looking forward to post any more details about this project on GSI soon so stay tuned.
-(More also about Peta, -Andy's daughter- , and her family soon on GSI !
Yesterday by the way was Peta and Matt's wedding anniversary: Congrats to the two of you,
Love Marion / GSI!!).

Gibb Family's private visit, Australia - September 2015.
We've already reported a lot on both GSI website and GSI facebook group about Barry's opening of Bee Gees Way stage 2 in Redcliffe on September 11th. 2015.
This event happened in a 3 week private visit to Australia.
A time in which Barry and Linda visited quite some places from Barry's childhood and of course they were able to see many family members again who are living in Australia,
like Barry's sister and her kids and grandkids. Also there was time to have meetings with old friends etc.
When Barry planned to visit Australia in 2013, GSI received several mails from old friends of the Gibbs who wanted to re-unite with Barry and his family and about one of these reunions
GSI reported back then when Barry and Barbara met the Longuet Family again after many years.

GSI kept in touch with the Longuet Family after this reunion and also this year both families had a chance to sit down for a nice talk.

From the Gibb Family:
A NEW GIBB ARRIVAL
Robin-John (R-J) and Megan are overjoyed and extremely proud to announce a new addition to the Gibb family.
On Sunday 7th June 2015, Megan gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy: Theodore-Alexander Hugh Gibb.
'Theo' is R-J's and Megan's second child together and the second grandchild of R-J's late father: Robin Hugh Gibb CBE.
R-J's mother and Robin's widow Dwina Gibb, and Megan's parents Eugene and Grace Golub, are delighted with the safe arrival of their latest grandson.
Dwina expresses: "Even though it is a joyful occasion, it is sad that Robin is not here with me to share in the happiness of seeing our grandchildren flourish and grow. I am glad they will have the music."
R-J says: "I know that my father would have been a wonderful grandparent because he was such a loving, attentive and inspirational father.
We miss him terribly and it is sad to know that had he lived just a little longer, he would have met his two grandsons: Maxwell and Theodore.
Although they will never meet him, it is great that they will always hear his voice."
Marion / GSI, June 25th. 2015
Yesterday a little Gibb was born.
Megan Golub and R.J. Gibb became the proud parents of another little boy.
Welcome little prince!!
Congratulations from GSI!!
We wish the family all the best and send hugs and kisses.

Andy's memorial stone, Thame
Dwina Gibb: We are also going to re-do the carving of the letters on Andy's little memorial stone as it has become rather weathered. It is nearby to Robin's grave.
Andy, of course, is at Forest Lawn in LA, but fans from Europe like to visit some little memorial to him here. I have asked Martin to help us with this.
Marion / GSI, May 18th. 2015
Today I received this letter from Dwina Gibb.
This is to all the fans out there.
We wanted to let friends and fans know that at last we have had all the
permissions for a very special headstone for Robin and we have been assured
that the ground has now settled enough to erect the headstone. Special
permission was also granted to carve both the front and the back of the
headstone. The stone is Kilkenny Blue Marble, which is a very hard
limestone rock that is quarried in Ireland. It was especially chosen by the
Gibb family and the gold medallist sculptor and stonemason: Martin Cook.
Martin is currently spending hours and hours carving the stone. We had
originally thought of Welsh slate from the mines that Robin and I had
visited, but St. Mary's Church is a Grade One listed Church, thought to have
been originally an Anglo Saxon Royal Minster, with special rules and
regulations. Slate is forbidden, but the stone we have now, has been
allowed. Robin originally chose the Kilkenny Blue stone for sculptures in
our garden that were carved by Michael Cooper. So this type of stone has a
connection with the family already.
We apologise to friends and fans for the long delay but we wanted something
very special and we had to be very patient in order to achieve it.
If fans wonder where some of their gifts and tokens go that are placed on
the grave... sometimes we have to remove them when it is overflowing with
gifts, but we keep all of them and place them inside the special Memorial
Chapel in our grounds. The Chapel is a shrine itself, filled with letters,
drawings, gifts and prayers for Robin. Thank you for your own patience,
your wonderful support and show of love.
I have included two photos of the sculptor Martin Cook at work on the roses
for the front of the stone.
With all good wishes and love to everyone,
Dwina Gibb ***

Robin John Gibb:
' I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year. I am hopeful that your year will be filled with happiness and prosperity.
For those who noticed the absence of tributes on my farher's grave, sometimes we keep things personal, we left our tributes,
lit candles and left flowers at my farher's shrine in the family Chapel which my father loved so much.
We also paid our respects to all the other departed members of the family and to our dear departed friends.
Further more, after so long, at last, we have been granted permission to erect his headstone, the type of headstone he deserves.
Wishing you all health, wealth, intrigue and adventure in the year ahead,
Love and best wishes'

Getting -Barry Gibb- as birthday present!
TG Sheppard and Kelly Lang, are very good friends with Barry and his family for a long time already.
They are both singers and Kelly decided to surprise her husband this year on his birthday with a very special gift.
TG Sheppard wrote on facebook:
"Kelly surprised me with an incredible birthday party at Eau Palm Beach Resort in West Palm Beach, FL.
The big surprise was when dear friends Barry and Linda Gibb along with some of their family: Ashley,Therese and Lucas joined us for the three day weekend.
One of Kelly's gifts to me was a video filled with birthday wishes from special friends and family..96 wishes total.
I didn't think it could get any better until Barry took out his guitar and sang with us under a cabana for almost three hours overlooking the ocean.
It was truly a magical evening and birthday that I will never forget"

Dwina about her grand child and family
Dwina: 'Maxwell is a happy loving baby and has changed our lives and helped ease some of our pain. I am only sorry that his grandfather Robin never met him,
but the genes pass on and I see traits of RJ and Robin in him already. He is lovely. RJ and Megan are delighted with him. Melissa spent Christmas with us, and Spencer will probably visit us later this year.
The three photos I have sent were taken on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve,
and his Great Auntie Yvonne gave him the little outfit with the tie on it. He has two little teeth come through now, and more on the way.'
Happy new year Maxwell

Gibb Family in Australia
Many fans have asked me the last couple of days how Leslie Gibb's situation is concerning the huge bush fires in NSW Australia which are in the area where Leslie lives.
I was told that Leslie has evacuated her house by order of the fire department, so she is safe but they have no idea about the situation of the house at the moment.
The fires expected to last a few more days.
Very sad, we hope for the best!!

Hello everyone, Megan and baby are well and I can't express in words the wonderous feeling of beholding the birth of your first child and the absolute feeling of contentment when you first cradle him in your arms.
I'm sure other fathers out there can relate to me.
Here is the quote I gave the press in full concerning the birth of our beautiful new baby boy: Robin John and Megan are happy to announce the birth of Maxwell- Robin John Gibb,
a beautiful healthy baby boy weighing 8.4lbs(3.8 kilos) on Tuesday 16th July 2013 at 550pm Robin John says: "It is an incredible feeling becoming a new father,
absolutely magical. I wish my father was here to see his first grandchild. He would have been extremely proud and I feel certain that somewhere and in some way, he is.
We are so happy to finally be able to hold him in our arms and mother and child are happy and well.
Megan and I would like to thank Dr. Colin Davis and all the maternity staff at the Great Portland Hospital for their care and support, the love of our family and friends and all the fans."

- No one really can believe that it's 10 years ago today that Maurice Gibb died.
We think about him every day, share wonderful memories and still are fortunate to be able to listen to the music of him and his brothers.
- Unfortunately 10 years ago this date of January 12th. became one with mixed feelings as it's also the birthday of the only sister of The Gibb Brothers: Lesley Gibb Evans who lives in Australia.
We of course wish her a wonderful day and send her our congratulations!!
January 12th. 2013
This has always been one of these happy days for all Bee Gees fans and for the Gibb Family and their friends as well.
The birthday of our Bee Gees twins Maurice and Robin as well as the birthday of Robin's wife Dwina.
Unfortunately since 2003 we feel sad when this day arrives again as this was the year Maurice died and this December 22nd.
will be the first time we have to deal with the fact that both twins are not longer amongst us, so sad specially for Dwina who does have her birthday on
December 22nd. as well. It will be the first time without her beloved Robin.
We all wish Dwina lots of strength and we're sure she'll be surrounded by family and friends these times and let us all try not to be too sad on all the upcoming
December 22nd. dates but let's try to remember all those lovely moments we've had with the twins,
all the wonderful memories we have of them and most of all all the great music they left us (together with brother Barry ) and forever keep their music alive.!!
In memory of Robin Gibb:

The Funeral of Robin Gibb
Robin lived in Thame for many years and died from kidney failure on May 20th after suffering from cancer and pneumonia.
He was burried June 8th. Hundreds and hundreds of fans lined the streets of Thame as a lone bagpiper led a procession through the town.
Robin and Dwina's home, a converted 13th century monastery, is opposite the church but the carriage travelled along the market town's high street first as it was among
Robin's last wishes that he could 'say a final goodbye to fans and his home town'.
The decorative carriage left from Priests End in the town at around 1.30 pm and travelled along the High Street to St Mary's Church, where the ceremony took place.
The service on June 8th. was just for family and close friends. A public memorial will be staged in London in September.

Robin Gibb has died
Today I've come home from being abroad for a short period, and it's very hard to have to share with you the news of Robin's death.
(Marion / GSI)
The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away on Sunday 20 May, 2012 at 10:46pm following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. They have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.
May 26th. 2012
Robin out of coma
Robin has confounded his doctors by waking up from the coma he had slipped into after contracting pneumonia.
He remains in intensive care but is now fully conscious, able to speak to his loved ones and breathing on his own with an oxygen mask. Read the full statement from his doctors on GSI Family News.
The Gibb family are hoping and praying for his full recovery and would like to thank everyone for their prayers and messages of support.
Robin's website still is unavailable but both GSI and Robin's Facebook page will try and keep you updated. (thanks also Robin Gibb.com).

Statement From Robin Gibb's Doctors
Robin Gibb confounds his doctors!
The remarkable Robin Gibb has confounded Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam, his physician and gastroenterologist, Dr. Peter Harper, his medical oncologist,
Mr Roger Springall, his colorectal surgeon, and Dr. John Goldstone, anaesthetist in charge of the intensive care team at The London Clinic, with his indomitable fighting spirit and remarkable physical endurance.

STATEMENT FROM ROBIN GIBB'S DOCTORS
Robin Gibb confounds his doctors!
The remarkable Robin Gibb has confounded Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam, his physician and gastroenterologist, Dr. Peter Harper, his medical oncologist, Mr Roger Springall, his colorectal surgeon,
and Dr. John Goldstone, anaesthetist in charge of the intensive care team at The London Clinic, with his indomitable fighting spirit and remarkable physical endurance.
Dr. Thillainayagam, of Imperial College Healthcare, explained:
Despite having advanced colorectal cancer, Robin responded extremely well to Dr. Harper's aggressive chemotherapy treatment,
but went on to need two emergency operations in the space of two months. In the aftermath,
Robin developed the feared complication of pneumonia when he was very weak and fighting to recover from life saving surgery for peritonitis.
He failed to respond to chest physiotherapy and intravenous antibiotics. Therefore, I had to transfer him to intensive care for non-invasive, assisted ventilation.
Unfortunately, he continued to have worsening respiratory distress and lost consciousness for a number of reasons.
Eventually, he developed serious respiratory failure and was unable to ventilate his lungs on his own. We had to place him on artificial ventilation.
The prognosis was very grave, given that Robin had brain swelling from liver failure, a severe pneumonia and a weakened immune system from malnutrition.
I have managed Robin's series of acute medical problems very aggressively according to his explicit wishes. However, only three days ago,
I warned Robin's wife, Dwina, son, Robin John and brother, Barry, that I feared the worst.
We felt it was very likely that Robin would succumb to what seemed to be insurmountable obstacles to any form of meaningful recovery.
As a team, we were all concerned that we might be approaching the realms of futility.
It is testament to Robin's extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds to get where he is now.
Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones. He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask.
He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished.
Our immediate goals are to ensure that Robin's swallowing mechanism is safe enough to allow him to eat and drink, and that he recovers enough strength to breathe effectively, without needing high levels of oxygen by mask.
When this happens, we will be able to begin the process of nutritional and physical rehabilitation and may be able to move him from the intensive care unit to the ward.
Robin's wife, Dwina and son, Robin-John, his son Spencer and daughter Melissa have been at his bedside every day, talking to him and playing his favourite music to him .
They have been tireless in their determination never to give up on him.
The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being.
Update, Robin Gibb
Message from Ann Grootjans dated last Thursday
Robin has opened his eyes to Dwina's voice last night and moved his mouth trying to sing along to "I Started A Joke". Not communicating yet and obviously a long way to go still, but more and more responsive. Hold On Rob, Hold On! Please, please everyone keep sending good thoughts he pulls through and gets better.

Message from Spencer Gibb's official website
Fans, Friends, and Family...
On behalf of Spencer, I would first like to thank everyone for all of the love and support that has been given, for both the music and the man. It has neither gone un-noticed nor un-appreciated.
Lately, it has been no secret that Spencer's father, Robin, has been ill. Spencer has been at the side of his father and his family and will remain so for as long as he is needed.
I, along with the Gibb family, would like to extend many thanks for every concern that has been shared and conveyed. Nothing we have or will do is worth a thing without the love and appreciation of our fans.
At this point however, it is at the request of Spencer that fans of the Gibb family direct their concerns, questions and comments to their official and professional websites and/or pages.
Please allow the family their privacy and respect as they deal with this very challenging situation.
It is also at the request of Spencer that I convey the forward momentum of his UK campaign. In true Gibb form, the show will go on. There are many great things slated for the near future; as the response to Spencer's music has been both promising and unanimous.
On behalf of Spencer Gibb and his family, who have given so much to so many for so long,
I thank you all.

Robin in hospital
There have been confusing reports posted on the internet lately telling that Robin was rushed to hospital October 11th.
It seems he had allergy problems but it surely wasn't like he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.
He decided not to go to the blue plaque unveiling of Kenneth Williams because of that. So it was just an allergic reaction and everything is okay now.
Robin and Dwina miss their Paddy

Robin John plays part in film.
Robin John, son of Robin Gibb and wife Dwina is busy filming for a project called "Blood Type" a vampire Sci-Fi show written by John Matthews and Wil Kingham.
"Blood Type" is a multidimensional new take on the ancient story of Vampires. Two very different Vampires form an unlikely alliance to hunt for a girl who holds a terrible secret in her blood.
The show revolves around the struggles and conflicts of two alternative universes, one ruled by vampires where humans are feudal slaves, kept as a subjugated food-source, and our own reality, where vampires are only perceived as creatures of myth and legend, their real interaction with our world a well kept but deadly secret.
Starring Emily Berrington, Emrys Matthews, Edward Blagrove, Robin-John Gibb and narrated by Jason Shooting commenced in London on April 11th and will be filmed at various locations in London, Oxford and Thame.
One of the locations of the film is "The Prebendal", Thame in Oxfordshire, an amazingly beautiful 12th Century estate and home of Robin and Dwina Gibb.
Robin-John Gibb plays the part of Belisar, lord of the vampire clans, and an amazing discovery as a new face on the screen! Without doubt a highly charismatic and poised young man.
All the "Vampire Universe" scenes, including the stone circle and sword cane duel were shot at "The Prebendal".
The wonderful support, enthusiasm and hospitality of the Gibb family, especially Dwina Murphy-Gibb and all the staff were amazing!
Dwina, you're an angel!
(According to Mark Ryan).

The results are surprisingly vivid and engaging. The film is told partially through the eyes of Samantha Gibb's band, M.E.G., which relocated to Nashville from Miami in 2006 and is dedicated to her father Maurice Gibb.
Samantha: "It's definitely not something that we're steering away from," she says."I'm proud to be his daughter."

Robin talks about being separated from his kids
Robin speaks of having been "very, very nervous" and "horrified" at the prospect of seeing his children, Spencer and Melissa,
for the first time after he divorced his first wife, Molly Hullis, in 1980.
"'Out of control' is the first emotion alienated parents feel when they're separated from their kids," says Gibb.
"They feel threatened. They feel as if they are not dictating events."
Pt.1 - Premature birth
Pt.2 - Encouraging your children's ambitions
Pt. 3 - Talking with your kids

Robin worried about his son
Robin was due to attend a London charity lunch on Sunday but pulled out after staying up all night by his son's bed.
Robin was desperately worried for his son Robin-John, 25, after his pancreas flared up and he was rushed for treatment.
A source said: "RJ was poorly before with pancreas trouble. Last time he was in intensive care so the family took no chances."
"Robin never lets anyone down so everyone knew it was serious."
RJ - who composes film music and was treated near Oxford - went home on Sunday.

Maurice Gibb art work for Yvonne
William Hunt a local artist from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida got in touch with GSI earlier this year. He created a Maurice art work which he wanted to offer to one of the Gibbs. He asked me and wanted me to decide to whom of the Gibb family the art work had to be send.
It would have been great for Barry, for Robin and for Barbara Gibb but I decided to offer it to Yvonne. Yvonne received it late last month.
Click here for more details and copy of the Maurice Gibb art work.
The visual broadcast planned for Saturday, for Barry's birthday had to be postponed. Duane one of their dogs is very sick and the whole family is very sad.

Message from Robin and Dwina
Dear friends, family and fans,
My family and I wish to thank all of you for your kindness and generosity, and most of all, for your love and support in coming to Miami Beach to attend the inauguration of Maurice's special park.
We thank the Mayor, officials and the residents of Miami Beach who helped make this happen, and for the speeches and remembrances of those close to Maurice.
Our appreciation is heartfelt for those who travelled from so far to attend this ceremony and for the friends, neighbours and locals who turned out for the occasion.
For those who could not come, thank you for your donations, letters, cards, phone-calls and your kind words and blessings.
Mo is in our hearts and minds and lives on in the great legacy of his music, which crosses all barriers.
Our love to all of you

"Live: With Full Force"
Steve Gibb and his band Crowbar have a DVD out which is now available from different American websites and will be available in Europe around February 26th.
FANTASTIC LIVE DVD FROM THE HEAVIEST BAND ON EARTH.
Marion (February 16th. - 2007)
Filmed at the popular German open-air festival of the same name, live: With Full Force was captured on Crowbar's world tour supporting their 2005 release, Lifesblood for the Downtrodden.
The live performance DVD further includes candid backstage footage plus the band's second (and previously unavailable) promotional video for the album track "Slave No More."
It goes without saying the scope of contributions and merits Crowbar have had on the heavy music scene since their formation over a decade ago. Originally noted as a cross-mix of Pantera and The Melvins,
later dubbed sludge metal/core, Crowbar pioneered the genre's early sound and today continue to push its boundaries with experimentation and endless determination.
To date their US soundscan history approaching a quarter of a million units. Crowbar are planning a series of dates in 2007 while continuing work on new material for their next album expected early 2008.
Recently an album has been released by children of famous stars.
On this album these kids sing a song for their fathers.
Spencer Gibb, the eldest son of Robin (and Molly) participated too.
The musically gifted sons and daughters of music's biggest names put a unique and intimate spin on familiar material made famous by their legendary fathers, connecting great songs between two generations.
The gifted children of the artists pay emotional tribute to their fathers on this unique compilation created especially for Target: "A Song For My Father".
Spencer Gibb is singing "Run To Me".

Barry's 60th. Birthday
Fan Gathering Miami Beach.
Like mentioned before Bee Gees fan Heidi Bookout is busy organizing a fan gathering in Miami Beach.
We have some updates on these plans right now.
Many have contacted Heidi yet telling they are interested and probably are coming.
However at this point it hasn't been possible for Heidi to get back to all these fans yet, writing a note.
Please all interested fans: keep an eye on the GSI website for details and updates at this point and sooner or later Heidi or GSI will mail you with necessary information.
Any more fans who read this and are interested to come: mail Heidi at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The tentative date for the gathering is from 7 until 10 September 2006
On the agenda probably will be amongst others a visit to the Maurice Gibb Memorial Park and at the moment it's looking like the main party will be a costume party. Everyone knows how much Barry likes to play dress up (often with good friend David English!) so what better type of party to have?!
Heidi however is still looking for more suggestions from you for the main party, so try and mail her with ideas!
A suggestion Heidi received to use as a theme for the party: 'Song Titles'. Any song titles that has to do with The Bee Gees and / or Barry; a song title or something which has any connection with a song of The Brothers.
Heidi also received requests from fans for combining the Birthday party with a fund raiser for the Love and Hope foundation.
When things get definite and all details are known we'll let all interested fans know.
We hope to have all the information for hotel and other expenses by the end of March.

Memorial Tree for Maurice
The red blooming version of the tree which was planted . Maurice's will be yellow
Thanks to the efforts of fan Jeannie Rush and a group of other fans this plan of planting a memorial tree for Maurice became reality.
They have worked for 9 months to have a tree planted in Maurice's park in Miami Beach, Florida. The tree was planted February 15th.
Below is a copy of the email that was sent also to GSI as well as to Barry, Robin and Dwina's website.
Please forward this information on to Robin and family as the fans at the previously operating Robin Gibb site
have been working since May of last year to get a tree planted in Maurice's park in Florida. I agreed to pursue
this "living" memorial for the fans. I am so pleased to inform Robin and his family that the tree has been planted
this week in Maurice's park. Through the effort of the following fans and their generous donations our dream has
become a reality:
The original tree planted for Mo in the Maurice Gibb Memorial Park. Credits and thanks to: Ana of the Ellan Vannin website.

I think Robin would like to know how much we loved and appreciated Maurice. We hope that this "living" memorial
will become a beautiful blooming shelter for all the fans who visit the park.
When the fans came together on Robin's site little did we know that we would find such wonderful people with the
music of the Bee Gees and Robin as our common bond. Over the years we became friends. Please know that we
miss being able to go to Robin's site and leave messages. Our hope now is that the site will begin again very soon
so we can continue to work toward new friendships and catch up with the old friends.
Thank you, Jeannie Rush

Graduation Adam Gibb
Adam "Bachelor Of Science In Communication"
On December 15th 2005 at the University of Miami Adam Graduated.
His honor was for Bachelor Of Science In Communication.
Yvonne was so proud of him and many tears of joy and sadness filled the air.
I have been told that everyone felt the presence of Maurice very much too.
It would have been great to have seen Mo's big smile on his face as Adam received his award.
Adam was just so calm and happy, because he told that his dad was there.
His sister Samantha was also so happy for her brother because she knew how hard he worked for this and that he also graduated as one of the top students in his class.
Also attending was Adam's Uncle Herby and his son Graham and girlfriend Laura.
Friends who watched Adam grow up, came from out of state and many friends attended in his honor.
His uncles Robin and Barry and their families were not present for different reasons.
Here are some photos taken during the day of the Graduation.

Maurice Gibb Tribute Plans
There seems to be some confusing about the several plans.
We reported before about the tribute plans for Maurice according to a publication of Clear Channel (see GSI News of October 22nd). This is a project where several famous artists will sing tribute songs on an album as well as a show however this is not a Bee Gees project.
About two years ago some first plans were made by Barry and Robin concerning a Bee Gees tribute to Maurice however things went differently which Barry explains on his website:
"Two years ago at Buckingham Palace Robin and I discussed with great enthusiasm a tribute to Maurice. We both agreed on what was to happen and it sounded great..."
Read more at: www.barrygibb.com/
News/off the record.
Next to that Barry recently announced he would like and is planning to release an album next year with only Maurice Gibb songs.
Marion (October 29th. - 2005)
The Gibb Family would like to let you know that however there's still limited power sources available...
They are all okay themselves!!

It looks like one of her Irish plays may be made into a film.
Dwina now has to start changing the play-script to a screen-script which is quite a lot of work, but she told GSI: - it will be fun to do -.
The film will be an Irish comedy. More to come about that, later.

'Barry and Linda's house for sale in Miami Beach'
This seems to be a rumour going on for some days already.
Fans asked if Barry is going to move to Australia
This is not true!
At the end of the year all the contents of Middle Ear Studio will go into storage and will be sorted out later on.
Barry will use a demo studio at his Miami Beach home and when necessary will use or rent other studios such as Criteria / Hit Factory when ever he needs.

The Gibbs do not own the Paintball Shop anymore at 337 NE 167 Street in Miami Beach According to the family it was bought and taken over by one of Mo's friends who has moved it to his paintball field in North Miami where Maurice also used to play.

It relates the amusing circumstances of how I met Dwina and of our mutual connection with the Irish poet, W.B. Yeats.
It tells about the times I visited their wonderful home in England, and also in Miami; of the great New Year parties Robin and Dwina gave, and of the lovely times we shared.
It also tells about the time Dwina so generously let us use her home to do a short film on Loreena McKennitt.
Some lines from my book:
"From our first meeting in the Prebendal, Robin and Dwina's magnificent 12th century home, there was an immediate connection between Dwina and me.
It was as though we had always been friends and had just met after a long absence.......After dinner, Rosy entertained Robin-John, Robin retired to his study to work and Dwina and I talked.
We sat by the fire long into the night, talking about ideas, experiences, dreams, inspired by the firelight, candlelight and each other."

Together with Dick Ashby, John Merchant, his wife Linda (of course) and some other relatives Barry recently has been to California for three weeks to record the Streisand album as we mentioned before. According to management daughter Ali and her friend loved the trip especially because their goal was to meet with their idol Johnny Depp in California. However: Ali and her friend didn't succeed in this plan they did have a great time in L.A. after all.

First album MEG with Maurice
Sam's band MEG is getting ready to release their first CD.
As you know GSI is in contact with the group and this week Laz enthusiastic mailed me with the latest details.
Sam, Nick and Laz are very busy right now he wrote as they almost are reaching the deadline which is at the end of the month for the release of the CD.
There will be 12 songs on the album according to Laz and most of the record is produced by Maurice!! He wrote me to be very proud of that and Laz told me that Maurice even plays a bunchs of tracks too. They are now looking for representation, so for the moment they haven't got any gigs booked, but when they do Laz, Nick and Sam promise to let GSI know.
For more info about MEG www.MEGmusic.net
We'll keep you posted.
Many fans asked us if songs like: 'The Bridge' and 'Sensuality' will be amongst the tracks on the first MEG album.
However MEG just informed us this won't be the case but they do point out that for instance 'The Bridge' would be an ideal track on a possible tribute album once.
Maurice Gibb Memorial Park
As you know there's going to come a Memorial Park in honor of Maurice in Miami Beach.
(Middle Beach: 18th St. & Purdy Ave)
See for details: www.miamibeachfl.gov
It will include a landscaped plaza with mosaic flooring imported from Italy and featuring a bronze plaque and granite sign in memory of Maurice.
Of course GSI has informed at management and at the moment the project still is in the permitting stage so they think it will be a short while before the construction starts however the mosaic material has arrived already from Italy.
There are drawings to view at the city hall. GSI will soon inform with Maurice's relatives to get to know more details.

Kim and Peta Gibb
So many requests we always receive about all the relatives of The Bee Gees and Andy. Not very often we can help you as in general we think most relatives of the Gibb Brothers prefer not to be mentioned on Bee Gees websites too much and just like to live their own lives.
This week it's Peta's birthday, daughter of Andy Gibb and Kim Reeder.
Peta was born: January 25th. 1978.
Here an older photo from our GSI archives showing Kim and Peta.
Like Bee Gees sister Lesley Gibb also Peta and her family are breeding dogs in Australia: Staffordshire Bull Terriers
Here he is, the new little Gibb with his parents.
Enjoy these lovely photos of Damien, Michael and Lisa.
