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 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:

The Gibb Children Pay Tribute To The Bee Gees As The Gibb Collective

Tuesday, 16 May 2017 03:12

The children of Barry, Maurice, Robin and Andy Gibb have combined to tribute the music of their parents as The Gibb Collective.

What started out as a single recording by Maurice’s daughter Samantha Gibb soon became a full project with all of the cousins.

“It started when my partner Lazaro and I decided to do a cover of ‘New York Mining Disaster 1941,” says Samantha. “We loved the way it turned out and thought it would be really cool to do more if it. We had been wanting to do a tribute for a long time for my dad and my uncles. It started to feel like the right time so we started to reach out then we talked to everybody. Each person decided to do a take on a track that was one of their favourites. The next thing we knew we had a 10 song album”.

The Gibb Collective, founded in 2016, celebrates the unique voices of the children of legendary artists Barry, Robin, Andy and Maurice Gibb. The project began when Samantha, daughter of Maurice Gibb and her producer. Lazaro Rodriguez, recorded a cover of “New York Mining Disaster, 1941.” The two were so pleased with the outcome that they were inspired to build upon the idea, making it a true family affair. Even though these talented relatives are spread out all over the globe, they were able to come together to pay tribute to the impressive musical legacies of their fathers. 

Each of the 10 Gibb family members featured on the album put modern, personal spins on classic Bee Gees tracks. The Gibb Collective took liberties with the songs they chose to put on their first official album, but lines to the original songs can be drawn clearly. Particularly stunning is the title track, “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights,” which features the eldest of each of the brothers’ kids working together in perfect harmony. Spencer Gibb’s take on “Don’t Fall in Love With Me,” first released by the Bee Gees in 1981, is another standout. His is a folk-inspired interpretation, but doesn’t deviate too far from the foundation of the original version.... To read more go to:

The Gibb Collective is a musical tribute, and a family legacy.  On the input of Maurice’s daughter, Samantha, the children of Andy, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have found a new way to honor their fathers through breathing new life into the more than memorable Bee Gee classics of the 60’s and 70’s. And what better title for the 10-track album, than “Please Don’t Turn Off The Lights”. Even though, to be fair to their fathers, ‘turning the lights off’ of the Bee Gees is an impossible task, considering the indelible mark they have left in the history popular music.

The Gibb Collective was founded in 2016 by Maurice’s daughter, Samantha, and quickly blossomed from a single – “New York Mining Disaster 1941” recorded by Samantha – into their first full album. The album is a collection of covers infused with new life and recorded by the children and the younger sister of all four Gibb brothers, and will aptly be released on April 14th, during the 50th Anniversary of the Bee Gees....To read more go to:

The Bee Gees have been such an awesome musical force for so many years, singing, songwriting, arranging and producing some of the most influential and important songs of the 20th century. It’s even more impressive when you realize that they were writing and performing songs as a band since their teens....To read more got to:
