Sunday Session - Tribute to the Bee Gees
Barry Gibb, the last remaining member of the Bee Gees recently unveiled a bronze statue and a special Bee Gees Walkway in the Moreton Bay town of Redcliffe, near Brisbane. This was the first time in 20 years that the oldest Gibb brother had been back to Redcliffe.
I feel sadness when I think of the Gibb brothers. The youngest brother Andy died at 30 of a weakened and damaged heart after years of drug and alcohol abuse in 1988; Maurice Gibb died unexpectedly of a cardiac arrest after going into hospital for a twisted bowel in 2003; and Maurice's twin Robin died in 2012 from liver and kidney failure due to colon cancer.
For my Sunday Session this week I thought I would share two of my favourite Bee Gees songs.
Their music will always live on.
