A New Year
We start a new year with GSI website (and Facebook group) and hope being able again to share with you in this new year: everything Gibb related.
This week GSI received a short update message from Barry Gibb and his team in Miami Beach.
Unfortunately there are no touring plans for 2015
but there may be one or two charity events where he does a short performance. We have at this time no details yet about these plans to announce.
Then there is of course the Grammy presentation in February!
As for recording: Barry is planning on writing and putting down a few demos in the new year so as to try out his newly refitted analogue home studio.
However we'll have to wait and see where that may or may not lead too.
GSI will update when more news becomes available of course.
Barry is planning to visit Australia, probably in September.
Unfortunately there is no DVD release of the Mythology tour planned.
The Bee Gees are been honoured with a lifetime achievement award at an event in Los Angeles on Feb 7 the day before the televised Grammys in the USA on Feb 8 th.
