Happy 2018!

The year 2017 ended with the great news that Barry is now Sir Barry Gibb.  Let us hope that another year will bring another batch of great news!

As this is the Year of Dogs in the Japanese (Oriental) Zodiac calendar, we are planning to do a series of articles about the Bee Gees and dogs this month.

December 22 is the winter solstice, but for Bee Gees fans, it's the birthday of Robin and Maurice Gibb!  They were born on the longest night of the year.  In other words, they were born just before the days begin to get longer and longer.  So a fan wrote to us that they were born when we "Saw A New Morning""!

To celebrate their 68th birthday, here is the "Statistics" from when they were 18 - from "Bee Gees Statistics," Fablulous, May 4, 1967.

45 years ago this week, the 'Sea of Smiling Faces' single was released in Japan.

In fact, Japan was the only country where the song was released as a single. It featured on the cover the photos of the three brothers from their Japan tour which took place earlier that year: Barry and Maurice from their very first Tokyo concert in Shibuya and Robin from the second Tokyo show at Budokan.   The single came out on December 5, 1972 as a follow-up to 'Run To Me'  from the album "To Whom It May Concern."
