Bee Gee in surprise comeback with posthumous album
Robin's solo album will be out soon.
Dwina: "It will be out in the autumn and is called 50 St Catherine's Drive, after the first house he lived in on the Isle of Man," discloses Robin's widow.
"He started it when he thought he and Barry [Gibb] would get back together and it would be a joint album, but then he realised he was ill and so he decided to do it on his own.
I think it will please a lot of people; I'm very proud of it, as I am of all his achievements."

It was on May 31 when Barry had his performance in Concord (near San Francisco).
Open air show again, good weather, great atmosphere and lots of enthusiastic fans.
Sam unfortunately still wasn't there but according to Barry she's doing better and hopes to be there in Hollywood. Barry spoke of her with tenderness and asked the audience to wish her well. We keep our fingers crossed.

Barry Gibb concert Chicago
Barry really was enjoying himself in Chicago, he looked very relaxed. A pity that Sam wasn't able again to be there due to an illness.
She's healing well and hopes to be there again on the West Coast.
Whereever Barry goes during this US tour: the crowd loves him and he loves to be there and sing for his audience.
Although the difficult and emotional moments and being on stage without his brothers: Barry loves to perform again.

Barry Gibb concert New York
Cold and rainy weather when Barry did his open air concert last night in Wantagh,
NY Nikon at, Jones Beach Theater. However with his performance he brought sunshine to all the fans.
A little sad was the fact that Barry had to tell the audience he'd perform that night without his niece Sam who had fallen ill and was in hospital for some tests.
A disappointment for the audience of course.
Message from Sam on Twitter: Saturday morning May 24th.
Samantha Gibb ?@SamGibbMusic
Can't even describe how sad I am to of missed the Jones Beach show.Last night my health needed to come first. Now healing and getting better.
Barry on twitter:
Thank you Jones Beach. It was a wonderful life experience. Thank you for braving the rain and the cold. You were an inspiration.
Reviews (some first reviews from facebook)
* Just got back from Barry's show in Jones Beach. He was amazing! We spent the evening laughing, crying, singing and dancing to many of our favorite Bee Gees songs.
It was an amazing night and I had a great time. Barry belongs on stage and I hope he continues to tour.
* I saw such emotion tonight from Barry. I think he still gets amazed that he has such loyal fans and retelling stories about his brothers impacts him so.
I must again thank Linda for encouraging him to get back to his music so we can remind Barry what he and his brothers and his family mean to us.
* How Can You Mend (mentioning Sam is ill).
* Don't Throw It All Away ....

Robin John Gibb on Facebook, July 30th. 2014
Hello Everyone ,
It has recently been decided by the record company that an instrumental piece that I first composed in 2010 and then started writing lyrics for shortly thereafter has been chosen as a single.
The song, which a lot of you are aware of already, is Instant Love. Shortly before the Titanic Requiem
(as my father and I would work on different genres together and if we both decided to write on a piece we both liked we just went with the flow) I played him the song.
He sang some demo vocals to it and the rest is history. We then wrote the lyrics together and I finally completed the backing,
orchestration and overall production when I finished production works on 50 St Catherine's drive at Red Bus Studios in March of this year.
It was then mixed at Metropolis and will be released later this year.
Instant Love was originally going to be a club piece and now it is the mainstream piece it deserves to be
(yet the lines are indeed blurred these days and there's nothing wrong with that) but can still touch the club industry as there is a dance mix for future post-release.
The single will be the original version...
With my father and I singing a verse each and the chorus together.
My father laid down some amazing harmonics as well.
There was another version with just myself singing, when my father wanted to feature Instant Love on 50 St Catherine's Drive with me on the vocals. There was also the demo version from when we first started developing the song with just my father singing the lyrics, but even though it is not finished studio quality, if you have managed to get hold of it then kudos to you as it will of course be a "digital collectors item").
In the end we decided then that the original cannot be beat and I still have the same sentiments.
It truly is touching in my opinion and I hope you all enjoy the final outcome.
Love and best wishes to you and yours as always,
Whoever you may be,

Barry Gibb was incredible and 19,000 people remembered why they love the Bee Gees.

Robin John Gibb
A new website and soon more details about the near future about Robinīs and Robin Johnīs music.
Robin John Gibb, son of Robin, has developed into a unique composer and performer in his own right. It is without apology that he displays many of his fathers musical traits such as an ear for a melody and a hook.
However the full extent of that and his own considerable musical prowess was hugely evident during the composing and subsequent recording of the Warner Music released 'The Requiem For Titanic 2012'.
During the recording sessions held over a number of months at Air Studios in North London with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, his significant contribution in the collaboration with Robin can never be underestimated.
And while there can only be a sense of regret that we will never be able to enjoy further work from them since Robin's death in 2012,
mere weeks after the Premiere of The Requiem, we can be consoled in the knowledge there is so much more to come from RJ.
Ever the prolific writer, RJ is currently working on a series of projects including a 'Memoriam For World War 1' and a 'pop' album all due over the next 12 months.
Look out for further information in due course...

Dwina Gibb's letter to GSI
In loving memory of Robin.
- It is a sad week full of poignant memories for our immediate family and the Clan Gibb. We will always miss Robin, especially his humour in the house and the wonderful creativity at any time of the day or night.
- The stone on Robin's grave will be placed soon.
We apologise to friends and fans that it has taken so long, a circumstance of hindrance beyond our control, but the result will be simple, unique and worth the wait.
- The album 50 St. Catherine's Drive is almost ready for a Summer or Autumn release. The songs are brilliant and beautiful.
- Baby Maxwell at ten months is crawling and trying to walk, saying little words and smiling all the time...such a happy baby.
- R-J is working on his music for an album. I love how eclectic he is with composition, from pop and R&B, to classical, to jazz, to house and film scores.
- I am writing a second play: another comedy, and I have finished another Regency novel which will be available soon called The Lady's Dilemma'.
