Barry will host radio show
Win Barry Gibb's fantastic new album 'In the Now'
Barry said of hosting his own radio show with us:
"I love it. I've never really had the opportunity and so it's a new experience but I was inspired by the best - John Laws, Ward Austin and Bob Rogers...so all I can do is imitate them."

At the moment Florida is dealing with hurricane Matthew.
Yesterday I had contact with Miami as I was concerned about their situation regarding hurricane Matthew.
I heard that The Gibb Family was expecting that they would live far enough south in Florida and therefore Matthew wouldn't do too much harm. Indeed in the south I understand things are okay now, thanks!
Next week Barry will be leaving for New York to do promo activities for a week etc.
He hopes to get back in time then for the next Gibb birthday party.

Barry at the One Show
Bee Gees Barry Gibb - In The Now, LIVE at The One Show 2016 September 30
It's About Staying Alive
Interview with Barry Gibb.
Tim Roxborogh reports
about speaking with Barry and talking about In The Now etc.
'A couple of weeks ago I had the honour of chatting to Barry Gibb for 45 minutes ahead of the release his new album In The Now.
I'm doing various different things with the interview (radio, newspaper, magazine) including this series on my website http://www.roxboroghreport.com/
The idea for the series on my blog is to give diehard Bee Gees fans some stuff they may not have heard before.
Part 1 focuses on the wonderfully strange and unusual song structures of some of the Bee Gees best known tracks. Hope you enjoy it, part 2 coming up in a day or so'.
'Find out the late period Bee Gees songs Barry desperately wanted to be singles, where he'd like to one day be buried,
the full backstory on how You Should Be Dancing was created, why he would pretend to be sick as a child, how his upcoming tour will differ from the
Mythology Tour, what he thinks the greatest song of all time is and just how much influence his wife Linda has on his professional life.
And of course, there will be an exploration into the sonic and lyrical inspirations on
In The Now - just his second official solo album after 1984's Now Voyager, though fourth if you count the unreleased The Kid's No Good from 1970 and the Hawks soundtrack in 1988.
As far as part 1 goes, I wanted to ask Barry about song structures with particular mention of You Win Again and Night Fever. Enjoy'.
See for the other parts: our facebook group or the special article we will post on this website in a while.

Barry's future plans
In several interviews he mentioned already another new album and touring!!!
Barry did several interviews after his performance with Coldplay mentioning his plans and future..
Whether he would fill the Legend slot at next year's festival, he replied: "Next year it's Diana Ross. I don't know where I'm going to fit."
Barry will certainly be on the bill somewhere.
After his incredible cameo with Coldplay last week, the singer has been asked by Glasto bosses Michael and Emily Eavis to come back next year for a solo set.
Speaking at the O2 Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef Awards, Barry revealed: "The people there were very kind to me and suggested a show perhaps next year. I would love to return to Glastonbury".
"But if it's not next year, it will be the year after, as I'll be on the road anyway."
Barry has just signed a new deal with Sony RCA and later this year will release his first solo album in more than 30 years, called "In The Now".
The last surviving Bee Gee will continue to fly the flag for disco but there is new material in the works too.
Barry added: "The last number of shows (Mythology Tours) I've been doing, have been paying tribute to my family and my brothers but that will change next time. It will be more about me as an individual seizing life."

Some more album details
New album Barry, release date November,

Title: "In The Now"

Produced by Barry and John Merchant.
12 tracks on the album and 3 known titles so far being: : 1. 'A Home Truth Song' 2. 'End of the Rainbow' (dedicate to Robin Gibb) 3. 'Starcrossed Lovers' (dedicate to Linda Gibb), written in 2004.
News from Japan - Asia
Universal Music Japan released the remastered version of the soundtrack to the Sg. Pepper film on June 29th. This surprising choice is actually a part of the project to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' one and only visit to Japan.
The new 2-CD package includes the poster (smaller) that was in the original 1978 release as well as the reproduced "obi" strip from it.
More details at: http://beegeedays.com
Also, a Taiwanese film inspired by the Bee Gees song and titled "First of May" was released in Tokyo, etc. in May.
First of May is actually one of the best-known and best-loved Bee Gees songs in Japan due mostly to the success of the 1971 film "Melody" here which used the song very effectively.
There was also a Japanese TV series called First of May in 1996 which also featured the Bee Gees version of the song.
Starring Kinki Kids, who were like the biggest heartthrobs in Japan back then, the TV series about growing up in the '90 Tokyo, got good ratings.
Consequently, Universal Music compiled a special collection of Bee Gees hits and called it First of May. It sold very well over here.

Some answers of fan questions and updates
Barry's new album will become available on vinyl although we do not have the date yet.
The new album will be available for pre order on August 19!!
Some first lyrics of In The Now: If tears were diamonds.....I`d be a rich man now....colour myself in silver rainbow - eyes of a child and the river grow old.....
Barry: A very personal album to me!
Soundclip of new album song on facebook:
Barry about his new album
"There is one song: "End Of The Rainbow" which I dedicate to Robin.
I sang a verse of the song to Robin when he was in a coma, about two weeks before he passed and I don't know if he heard it or not.
But I sang it anyway, I'm yet to sing it live and the lyrics reflect what I hope are my correct feelings.
There's one [song] called "Starcrossed Lovers" that I dedicate to my wife.
I've tried just to touch on all of the best influences in my entire life. It's really getting into the songwriting as deep as I can get. I'm very proud of this album.
It's an album that's like a journey, it's my opinion of life today, the culture, the songs reflect all those things.
It's not a disco album at all. It's an album of thoughts that range 60 years and different influences over the years. It's very autobiographical, not consciously, but sub consciously.
There are a lot of lyrics that are quite abstract but if you think about it deeply enough, like a painting, there are a lot of thoughts that are real behind abstract words. I hope that it makes sense."
'Angels' from the Shepherds and Butchers movie will not be released as a single and I am
not sure if there will be a sound track album as this is the only song in the movie so the rest would be instrumental music.
When we have more details maybe about a download version we'll let you know.
Barry's new activities will be done on the Columbia label (Sony Music) and their international team is
working with each country on local releases. More about that closer to the release dates. GSI will keep you updated about everything so stay tuned.
