Roxborogh Report Interview with Samantha Gibb

"The Man knew how to rock a fedora"

The Gibb Collective is a Bee Gees and Andy Gibb tribute album with a twist: all the performers are related to Barry, Robin, Maurice and Andy. What began as just Samantha Gibb (daughter of Maurice) recording a cover of New York Mining Disaster 1941 evolved into a 10-track album including her brother Adam as well as cousins Stephen and Travis (Barry’s sons), Beri Gibb (the niece of the Bee Gees who was raised as their sister), Spencer and RJ (Robin’s sons) and Peta Gibb (Andy’s daughter).

Other than Samantha’s ethereal interpretation of New York Mining Disaster 1941, another early standout for me is Spencer’s almost Dennis Wilson-like take on Don’t Fall In Love With Me from 1981’s Living Eyes. The Bee Gees version is probably in my all-time top 20 favourite non-hit Gibb songs and it’s a shame more people haven’t heard that unforgettable hook and harmony of, “Gonna’ be a lonely night / nothing but a lonely night.”....to read more go to:

Sydney Chic Interview

I've been a fan of the Bee Gees for over four decades and was delighted to get the opportunity to review a new album, "Please Don't Turn Out the Lights' by their children. 

On April 14th, during the 50th Anniversary of the Bee Gees, the children and younger sister of Andy, Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb are releasing a tribute album, “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights”. The title track features the eldest child of all four brothers harmonising in a style reminiscent of their father’s. 

It started with just one single, Samantha’s recording of “New York Mining Disaster 1941” with producer Lazaro Rodriguez. As members of her family listened to the track, they were eager to record their own version of their favourite Bee Gees song. Even though this family of artists is located all over the globe, they came together to make this 10 track album.

Personally, I love the album, the children seem to all of inherited their famous father's musical talents. I had a chance to ask Samantha Gibb some questions on the making of the album......

Peta Gibb Interview

PETA Weber has never wanted to speak publicly about her father, Andy Gibb, the youngest brother of Bee Gees fame. 

She didn’t want to acknowledge that she had a celebrity dad and until now, she hasn’t been ready to speak about some of the more painful memories of what that entailed.

But after a reunion this year with her cousins to record an album together called The Gibb Collective, she’s finally ready to embrace that famous surname. She’s told her story exclusively to news.com.au.

“HE WAS JUST A GUY ON THE END OF THE PHONE ... ” 

“I didn’t have the chance to get to know my father as well as I should have,” says Peta. “As I grew I learned that he was famous, and that he had famous siblings, but for me he was just a guy on the end of the telephone line.”....To read more go to:
