Recently, Barry Gibb was brought to Australia, to help dedicate a memorial walk that was built by a local authority, to commemorate the time during their youth, when Brothers Gibb resided in Redcliffe, Australia. Over the weekend, we had a trip to a marina close buy, and went to visit.


Here is the admiral at the beginning.

Here is a statue of the lads, depicting what they looked like, when the where here, and started to sing at different places, including on the beach.

The "Way" is a walkway through to a street behind, and in between 2 buildings. It is say 15 feet wide, and the display is along one side against one side of a building. It shares many photographs, from early on in their lives, through to the end of their playing careers. Very moving. Would have been better with some of their music playing.

Here is a link to a newspaper article about Barry Gibbs visit. It may help pull the story together for you.

Awesome tribute..

One can't help feel a bit sorry for Barry... the sole survivor of three very talented brothers. Other bands loose musicians and can sometimes survive and even reinvent themselves in the process, but the Bee Gees, although great musicians as well, were known for their vocal sound and that certain "it" factor that granted them a respect level from fans and colleagues rarely seen in the music industry.

So while we still hear a bit of Bonzo when Jason is playing the drums, and we still even hear a bit of Bon Scott when Brian Johnson is singing, and while without "the" Queen the band Queen doesn't sound the same, but they still can rock the house, and even Roger Daltry and Pete Townshend say they still hear the Loon and the Ox when they play.... No version of the Bee Gees can ever really exist again... and that's a little sad.

The Bee Gees. One of the best groups ever and they were able to change their music with the times and they extended their time on top by doing that.

We have seen Bee Gees way as well. It was a very emotional stroll as we are big Bee Gees fans.
