The Bee Gees are one of the most successful pop groups of all time. Started in 1959 by brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb the trio ranks near the top of the list of best-selling music artists and has earned every honor imaginable, including multiple Grammy® awards and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Bee Gees signed with Warner Bros. Records in 1987 and released three remarkable studio albums E.S.P., One, and High Civilization. This creative burst from The Brothers Gibb is remembered with a five-disc collection that includes all three studio albums, along with a selection of rare demos and outtakes. Also included is One For All, a 1989 concert recording available in its entirety for the first time. This 22-track live set has been newly mixed by Barry Gibb and John Merchant for a state-of-the-art sound that is the closest you can get to being there live. www.amazon.com

I'll try and update a.s.a.p. when there's latest news concerning Barry's tour, the plans for Robin's material to be released etc. etc. To answer many of your recent mails: I have received lots of requests to help you getting ticketssound check passes for one of the upcoming shows of Barry but at the moment I have no details on that, sorry. I hope this time there will again be a possibility for fans to visit sound checks as during last concerts there was an urgent request by the Gibb Family and management to: not publish any photo material before the end of the tour, early October but unfortunately one person did post photos of the Dublin sound check on Face book much too early. We hope this won't mean that this time Gibb Family/management decides - not to give fans a visit to the sound checks -!. I'll keep you posted. By also becoming member of GSI on Face book you'll hear from me at once when I know more.
I'll do my best.

  Message from Dwina to GSI
Marion / GSI: I've had contact with Robin's family and their asistant in Thame several times last week by mail and phone about things many fans have asked me about the past few months, about some updates as well as some talk about Dwina's work and the legacy of the BG music etc. Yesterday Dwina mailed me again with some updates and to answer some questions.

Bee Gees music legacy
About the legacy of The Bee Gees music she talks about other artists performing BG music and tells me she also knows about the 3 Italian Egiziano Brothers who are touring through Europe with former BG bandmember Blue Weaver, performing the BG music live on stage.
Dwina: 'Yes, I do know of the Italian brothers who sing and who have worked with Blue Weaver. Robin liked them very much. I do believe that the Bee Gees met them all.'

Robin's headstone at St. Mary's church yard
Fans are wondering and asking me many times why there still is no head stone for Robin's grave.
Dwina: Robin's headstone has been sourced from a mountain in Wales. We often visited this place in Wales en route to my parent's home in Ireland. We had to wait for a long time for the ground to settle here in Thame, because of the fact that St. Mary's Church has nine layers of tombs below, the Churchyard being almost a thousand years old. We also had terrible flooding around Thame. Our fields are still lakes at the moment. However, we do have a special award winning sculptor, Martin Cook, who is currently working on the headstone.
I feel that the family and fans will like it.'

(http://martincookstudio.co.uk).

The latest about Robin's solo album etc.
Dwina: 'Robin's solo album will also come out later this year. The songs are beautiful and his vocals magnificent as usual. We miss him and his voice terribly. Sadly, Ollie, our Irish wolfhound recently passed over. Ollie used to stand behind Robin when he was singing at the keyboards and he would lean against him just listening to the music. Robin would ruffle his head every so often. Wherever Robin was, Ollie was there. We have many photos of them sitting or walking together in the garden'.

Will there be a place for Robin on the internet in future
Dwina:'Robin's website will re-open soon as a place of special memories, and will have information and links to other family sites.'

Are there still plans for a memorial service
Dwina: 'Eventually, we will have a memorial service in London when the time is right and we are not hurting so much from our loss. It will be a celebration of his life.

Robin John's musical plans and Robin's musical legacy
Dwina: 'RJ is working on his own pop album and also on a classical World War I Memoriam. The Titanic Requiem will have a series of concerts soon, some with holograms and some as orchestral pieces.'

About her grand child and her family
See: GSI Family News(including some nice photos of Max)

Dwina's own career
Dwina: 'My Irish comedic play: Last Confessions of a Scallywag will be shown at The Mill at Sonning Dinner Theatre from 31 July - 24 August and then 5 September - 27 September. It is directed by Sarah Jane Berger. Online booking: www.millatsonning.com or Box Office Reading (0118) 969 8000. (www.millatsonning.com) I also have a Regency Mystery Romance eBook on Amazon Kindle, Mythwood Books, and iBooks, called: Pandora's Dilemma; and I am currently writing another play and other works.
I hope this has answered some of the questions.
Love to all,'
