BEE GEE legend Robin Gibb has finally made a public appearance without his trademark toupee.

The STAYING ALIVE hitmaker arrived at a press conference for the WORLD PEACE CONFERENCE in Hamburg, Germany yesterday (22OCT03) with his bald crown uncovered.

But despite the furore his new image caused in the assembled press, Gibb's bald head was not mentioned by the singer or reporters throughout the event.

Gibb is usually seen with a dark brown hairpiece or a trilby hat in an effort to disguise his hair loss.
