- 1. Barry & Linda Have Been Married for 46 Years & Have 5 Children
The couple lived together for only a short time and were divorced in July On 1 September his 24th birthdayGibb married Gray. Together, they have five children — Stephen bornAshley bornTravis bornMichael born and Alexandra born We never discussed the case. We would just sit around and write and get drunk. Michael liked wine — there were a few nights when he just went to sleep on the floor, " adding that he misses Jackson. They have dual citizenship. Barry has homes in Miami, Florida and in BeaconsfieldBuckinghamshire, set in 90 acres of countryside.
When Gibb heard Roy Orbison 's song " Crying ", he said: To me that was the voice of God. He created a style that we all still strive to emulate. I love Nashville and I love this music. It reigned as the top-selling album until Michael Jackson's Thriller. They are the only group in pop history to write, produce and record six straight No.
They have 16 Grammy nominations and nine Grammy wins. After a year or so they left each other and finally divorced in Before the family left Australia Leslie, their sister got her first baby: During the journey of about 6 weeks the boys did a lot of writing.
Also Robin remembers that parts of "To Love Somebody" were written on the ship but it wasn't finished until back in England. The boys worked their way over by performing. Robert Stigwood At the moment of their departure Festival Records made another move by trying to prevent them to leave the country using a court order.
Not a nice thing to deal with but it just made the boys even more determined and they thought: Col Joyce was one of the few Australians that had said: And it only took a few months before the Bee Gees proved Col to be right and the rest of the Australian music industry to be wrong. During their trip to England the brothers saw a big part of the world and while they made the outward journey as children, they where almost adults when they got back in England.
The first night we stayed at a gloomy hotel in Hampstead and immediately after that we could move into a house in Hendon". Soon after that a certain Mr.
Stigwood called them to get in contact with the Bee Gees. Vince Melouney and his wife Diane Stigwood: Polite but very calm and they made lots of jokes. I like their sense of humor and as well in doing business as on an personal level we became very good friends".
Molly Hullis, receptionist at Stigwood's office who later became Robin's first wife, remembers that first meeting very well. The guitars of the boys were collected at Hendon and they auditioned in the basement of the Saville Theatre playing a couple of their songs. That same afternoon, after the audition, Stigwood asked the boys to return to his office with him and told them: Stigwood had met the three boys, listened to them auditioning and offered them a 5 year contract all in one day!
Boys who would become the most popular and successful group since the Beatles. It was a dream come true and it hit bulls eye. If you realize how many promo tapes are made and send every day, you can't help but wonder how it is possible that a not very successful bunch of boys from Australia who just send a couple of songs to the Beatles' management manage to score a 5 year contract.
The Gibbs returned to England with a couple of hundred Pounds in their pockets and within three weeks they landed an exclusive contract that would make them millionaires. On the 24th of February the contract was signed. Colin Petersen At once the first single was released on Roberts Reaction Records but the song didn't make a big impression in England.
It did a lot better on the mainland of Europe where it instantly became a big success, also in the Netherlands!! Vince, at 22 was already recognized as one of Australia's premier guitarists when he left Australia in to go to England. He was working for Simca Motors in England when the Gibbs asked him to join. Actually Vince joined after Colin who had been busy with two careers already, music and acting. His musical wanderings had led him to the Steve And The Board group as well as studio sessions with the Gibbs and he emigrated to England at about the same time as the Gibbs and when he reclaimed his acquaintance with the brothers he was living in a flat with Bill Shepherdan arranger who had also worked with them in Australia already.
And so also Shepherd joined the party to replay his role as arranger and now the group was complete. It was on the 14th of April that they released their single: The boys got their inspiration for writing this song sitting in the staircase with lots of echo of Polydor Records.
There actually had also been a mining disaster in New York but that was not in but somewhere in according to Robin. Because of his tuning when he plays the minor at the beginning of the song which is different from a conventional A Minor".
I got a guitar for my ninth birthday and the guy who lived across the road from us just came back from Hawaii and he was the one who taught me that tuning. That's how it started and I never changed". The Bee Gees were off and running. The brothers with their dad The audience at their concert debut was less than inspiring.
Nine months later at the same theatre, the Bee Gees were met by the obligatory crowds of screaming supporters, because by that time they had followed the 'Mining Disaster' with a successful and brilliant album and a barrage of hit singles. As progressed, the world spun faster and faster for The Bee Gees. In June they signed to Atlantic Records for In the summer there's the release of "Bee Gees First" one of the keynote albums of the sixties.
Fresh and original, capturing among its fourteen songs some of the Bee Gees' most memorable work. The album cover features a photo from the band by Klaus Voorman and it was co-produced by their Australian ally Ossie Byrne.
The album reached the top ten of for instance the U. Dick Ashby "To Love Somebody" was a summer single, another international success, and later in the year "Holiday" found the top twenty in America. Then came a 45 that sold five million copies around the world! This crucial hit was called "Massachusetts" and written in New York. He had planned to record it but died in a plane crash before he got the chance. That year the boys even discussed the changing of their name into Rupert's World but they never did.
In that same year Dick Ashby appears in the lives of the brothers to play a very significant part in it from that moment on. Ashby, road manager for the Birds, another English group, got stuck with a van filled with equipment and no job when the band broke up. Stigwood heard about it and contracted him as the Bee Gees' road manager.
From then on Dick stayed with them and in became their personal manager. Nowadays he is the key figure in the contact between the brothers and the rest of the world.
Problems arose for the group in the late summer of when the Home Office in England informed them that Vince and Colin would have to leave the country in September. They were Australians and traveled to England on a visa. Stigwood tried to fight this decision, but his request was denied. Fans protesting against the decision of the Government This triggered even more action from him to force the Government to leave the group intact.
All this caused a lot of commotion and fans were protesting against the decision of the Government. Fans chained themselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace, demonstrations in the streets of London, even an elephant walked in a demonstration which headed for Internal Affairs, a helicopter filled with fans in the garden of the Department of Finances and so on, and so on The whole of the press got very excited and all the posters in the city were very clear: Save the Bee Gees.
The brothers stated that they would rather settle in America, Spain or Germany than to send off two of their band members.
Finally the pressure mounted so high that the Prime Minister intervened and declared the Bee Gees to be national property and Colin and Vince got their immigration documents. When Brian Epstein died, Stigwood suddenly found himself at the head of two major groups: Linda, who was a hostess of Top Of The Pops due to the fact that she won the miss Edinburgh elections.
Linda herself told that her meeting Barry had been predicted to her by a fortune teller. That same day Barry invited her for a drink in a restaurant and asked her to join him at a party later that night at Robert's place in Adam's Row to celebrate the success of "Massachusetts". They met more often and soon enough Barry traveled to Scotland to meet up with Linda there. They became a couple and in Linda started working in London as a model. Shortly after that she and Barry were living together and she quit her job to be there for Barry and that's how it's been up till now.
