Barry Gibb - Gorillaz Missed Out On Barry Gibb, Thrilled With Womack

Bee Gees star Barry Gibb missed out on his chance to join the Gorillaz due to an ear infection.
Group frontman Damon Albarn has revealed he approached Gibb and asked him to join Bobby Womack and Mos Def on the track Stylo.
He says, "We almost had Barry Gibb on this one, but he got MCLean's Earache on the way in and shied out."
But Albarn admits he's more than happy with the way the song turned out.
He tells PedestrianTV.com, "Bobby Womack's chorus, he just explodes into the track. Pow!!! How good is it to get Bobby Womack on the record? This was the first recording he'd made in 15, 20 years, so what an honour. Bobby said he only returned to do this Gorillaz track because his granddaughter said Gorillaz were cool. Which is true. We are.
"Bobby joined us on the Plastic Beach World Tour last year, and just knocked this song right out the park, every arena, every night. Incredible voice."
