:: Why did First of May not chart?
"Maybe you're wondering what happened to the G4 cover of First Of May. It hasn't charted in the Top 40 at all! The reason being Woolworths (the main force behind singles sales in the UK) have refused to stock it, not to mention a few other major stores. The reason being is that the record company have screwed up. They promised a free G4 sticker to everyone who bought a copy and it turns out that only a fraction of the copies pressed have included one. So, the chart compilers have also disqualified this release for inclusion in the charts. There was a midweek prediction before this mistake was known and it was at no. 6! This is a great shame, as it could've been the Bee Gees 49th top 10 hit in the UK." (Posted by James and Kelly Reed)

:: Review of Robin's concert in Argentina

"Robin Gibb gave an outstanding performance last Saturday November 26 at Luna Park Arena, Buenos Aires, Argentina. With the aid of his touring band plus an orchestra of 30 highly skilled Argentinean musicians, he delivered a myriad of the most successful Bee Gees songs plus two of his solo hits (Saved By the Bell and Juliet). After 20 minutes of the hour and half show, Robin, who was in top vocal form, got the audience, who had filled up 3/4 of the place, cheerfully dancing and clapping. The show skilfully combined breathless disco hits from the 70s with soulful ballads, some of them played acoustically. Robin received several standing ovations during the concert and could not leave the place until delivering three encores, the last one of them a second version of Staying Alive. The atmosphere during the whole event was of tender communion between artist and audience." (By Andrea Lettieri, Montevideo, Uruguay)

:: Barry Gibb's Birthday Party
Miami Sun Post (September 15, 2005): "Bowling proved to be a sport that is very much staying alive on South Beach, as four generations of Gibbs joined Bee Gees star Barry Gibb last Wednesday night at Lucky Strike, apparently the hottest birthday party spot on South Beach. The celebration was threefold: Linda and Barry's 35th wedding anniversary, Barry's birthday and Barry's son Ashley's birthday. In between bowling, the group of about 50 munched on burgers and hors d'oeuvres and sipped sour apple martinis (while some of the adult kids downed lemon drop shots). There were three separate cakes – one for each occasion – each differently decorated. The anniversary cake was two-tiered with lifelike pink roses. Barry's birthday cake, also two-tiered, had music notes and silver streamers all over it and Ashley's cake had a basketball and music theme. The party went until 10 p.m., but some of the younger Gibbs extended the stay until midnight. Of course, the whole family belted out what sources are saying was the loudest version of "Happy Birthday" to date at Lucky Strike. The tables were filled with gifts for the extravaganza and clearly the family left happy, because sources say they left a very generous tip." (Posted by Marj L)

A Maurice Gibb tribute album is in the works, and it will feature performances by Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, Sheryl Crow, Black Eyed Peas, Wyclef Jean, Beyonce Knowles, Leann Rimes and Eric Clapton. Babyface will produce it.
Clear Channel Entertainment Television has also announced its plan to participate in a multi-platform media project that will pay tribute and celebrate the life of Maurice Gibb, organized by Robin Gibb. Clear Channel Entertainment TV's plans include producing a television show from a live tribute concert featuring top music artists performing some of the Bee Gees' #1 hit songs, in addition to a behind-the-scenes television series and DVD releases of both. The "making of" television series is already being shot as the artists and producers are in the planning, recording and mixing stages of the tribute album. The episodes will document the making of the album and live concert, and will include exclusive interviews with the recording artists. Each show will lead up to the finale which showcases the actual live concert. In conjunction with the television series, CCETV will also release a DVD to include all episodes of the series as well as the broadcast of the concert performances. "This project brings yet another dimension to the hugely successful Bee Gees history and is a part of the vision which Robin has for keeping Maurice's -- and the Bee Gees' -- legacy alive to fans new and old. We are proud to be playing a part in this grand plan," says Steve Sterling, Senior Vice President of CCETV.
