Barry Gibb To Perform Posthumously With Brother Robin Nationwide


Bee Gees Robin Gibb

It’s all Bee Gees at the moment. Barry Gibb will ‘duet’ with his late brother Robin on a nationwide tour set in motion to honour the legacy of the band, while a special set of stamps will launch on The Isle of Man in the memory of Robin. Barry is the last surviving member of the Bee Gees.

Maurice Gibb died at 53 in 2003 after complications from a twisted intestine, while Robin lost his battle with cancer aged 62 last May. A source close to Barry, 66, called the shows an “emotional salute” and added: “The duet is touching. Barry will make his brothers the heart of the shows. It’s emotional to hear the voices in unison.” He will start an acoustic version of hit I Started A Joke before recordings of Robin Gibb are played on a screen, and will be performing three dates in the UK in September and October, including one show at the O2 Arena.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Review


OK
No, this isn't a Beatles film like A Hard Day's Night, released in conjunction with the eponymous album and telling a vague sort of story. Rather, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band came out 11 years after the seminal Beatles record. And it doesn't star the Beatles. In fact, it's one of the most bizarre films ever made, with the Bee Gees (who have no dialogue) appearing as the titular band, who acts through a series of vignettes based on songs that appear on the titular record (and some off of Abbey Road, too). Story-wise, there's really not much here -- basically it's about a small band's rise to fame and subsequent fight against the evil, corporate music business. And I mean basically. Really it's excuse to hear Beatles covers from the Brothers Gibb, Peter Frampton, Sandy Farina, Aerosmith (who pioneered their "Come Together" version here), Steve Martin(!), and George Burns(!!), who narrates the proceedings. And the music is really good, too. Never mind the "story."
