Bee Gees Biopic
The Writers Guild of America is on strike so unfortunately I think this may slow down the biopic script progress for a while. As far as I know the release date should be early 2025. I will keep you posted.

Barry’s message on social media about son Stephen’s new release
This is Barry. For the last year I have seen my son Stephen take control of his musical life and I have witnessed his determination along with his bandmates in Kill The Robot have achieved a highly aggressive, very melodic and energized album which is truly in his nature. I understand how tough it is in these times to build support and find others that have faith in you. So I would love it if you all checked this out. They are streaming on all platforms. This is the their first release from the record. Thanks so much. Love, Barry

Message posted on Facebook by Robin-John Gibb
“Great to be back after a a fantastic Danish tour!
Back to work on finishing the tracks my father and I started yet never had the chance to complete, those, finished yet cut from albums by us, in order to shorten the time (too much material) and my own solo material.
Denmark is always a pleasure to visit and the crowds were just amazing. Loved seeing so many familiar faces too, as well as some new, younger fans as well. The social media campaigns we are revamping are working it would appear.
Which reminds me. There are some incredible social media surprises ahead, as well as some announcements which I do believe will make many a delicious grin spread across the faces of those with a fantastic taste in music (i.e. you dedicated fans without whom this is but noise. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is all of you who make BEE GEE & Gibb music so special. The very backbone, so to speak. No one could ask for more loyal souks so truly good at heart, in my experience at least) surprises which have something to do with what I said at the beginning of this post, but…ahem…say no more.
There were also some further instructions from my father, as well, which WILL BE honoured and released, so as to be heard for the very first time, sung by those whom he wished should sing them.
After 10 years, it’s time to pay our respects, dedications, and finalise some unfinished business, sounds cryptic but all will be clear soon enough.
I am very happy to call Marion Adriaensen my very good friend, she is like family, very dear to me. She also happens to be, as most of you know very well indeed, the President of GSI – the Official BEE GEES Fan Club (time to call it for what it is) which of course it has been for some time now.
If you ask me, it’s about “bleeding” time somebody said it, too.
Both Marion & I cannot wait to reveal to you all these wonderful surprises which I’m certain will come as a pleasant uplifting experience after such a long period of anticipation. The unheard material will most certainly “blow the minds” so to speak, of many, once revealed. It’s all very secretive for now, & believe me, it’s hard enough for us not to say a word yet to anyone.
Exciting times with equally exciting changes are afoot.
(Speaking if a foot, I’ll add some footage and images from Denmark to this profile soon as well)
Warmest regards to you all & lots of love!
xxxxx Sincerely Robin J Gibb, (“RJ”) “

Latest message from Sam Gibb
I am very happy to let you all know that not only is my new EP Echoes available everywhere but next Friday, Feb 17th, I will be sharing the last official animated lyric video for the Echoes version of “Sorry, Not Sorry”. The amazing illustrator Keira O’Keefe helped us create a world behind these songs and I’m just so excited to share the final video with you all soon!
To watch the first two videos we did or to buy or listen to my music just go to the link below:
Hope everyone has an awesome week
“The single is a simple melody that just resonates through your mind like an echo as it’s written, produced, and mastered to perfection. Falling somewhere in the gray zone of pop music, the thought-provocative lyrics take you on a self-reflective trip through the process of having to let go in order to make room for growth” – EDM Rekords “Nashville-based artist SAMANTHA GIBB is a phenomenal talent. Her latest single ‘Sorry, Not Sorry’ is a relatable song with addictive lyrics, memorable melodies and stunning vocal performances. So make sure you add ‘Sorry, Not Sorry’ to your new music playlist this week!” – FVmusicblog
“We appreciate the poetic prowess and dynamic vocals that Samantha Gibb shares with Sorry Not Sorry, as well as her authenticity and vulnerability as a songwriter.”

Legacy – Celebrating The Bee Gees Music
Dear members As you know there are plans of Celebrating The Bee Gees Music the coming time in a special way. I’ve told you about it on GSI before. GSI will help spreading the word and today Robin John asked me to forward to you his audio message to me today: here’s a part of his call to me:
Just want to let you know that all that my father wrote that I posted is just 100% true. It’s sad though to hear and read what some fans write and how unkind they can comment. This even made my mother Dwina cry. I want you to know that I am the admin of Robin Gibb Facebook page. I hope you can help spreading the word that that’s the official social media where I will continue to publish my plans etc. concerning all things Legacy and Celebrating The Bee Gees Music and I will do this in future with your International group – GSI. This is Robin Gibb’s social media return. It’ll get new postings for the new Legacy gigs, the unheard music which not has been released, the unfinished works which will be finished and released. It’s going to be amazing especially with the Bee Gees Biopic coming up and so it’s such exiting times. Let’s make this year the start of a fantastic time as far as Bee Gees Music and Gibb Music is concerned because there’s a surprise which will be coming out and we soon have to talk about that too. It concerns using for Legacy: hologram technics, deep fake technology, huge advertising and so what we’re going to reveal is going to be huge and special and the most poignant moment in Gibb history. So please let everyone know: this is the real deal and this is also the come back of Robin Gibb on Facebook, lots of love and the best to the family, RJ”

New Year 2023
Today GSI received a short update again from Miami Beach. The year has started with not yet major plans confirmed, but the Love And Hope Balls (where many fans asked GSI about lately) probably won’t be organized the way they have always been. It’s more possible that the younger DRI committee may start a different series of annual fundraising events at some point. Of course GSI will keep you informed and updated !
At present Barry has no major plans for the coming months but at the moment is mostly busy with assisting the producers of the upcoming Bee Gees bio pic!! We’ll keep you informed about the rest of the year of course.
Be aware of all the fake people on the internet who pretend to be Barry Gibb, one of his family members or any people who try to convince you they can get you in contact with Barry!! See also the warning on the GSI Facebook group!
Happy New Year and best wishes to all of you .
