Robin has been active below the radar during the summer months. With final deadlines, Robin and RJ have been very busy completing the compositions for their eagerly awaited "Titanic Requiem."  Those lucky enough to hear it have been blown away by it.

On July 20, he recorded the lead vocals for a new version of the Bee Gees' 1968 hit "I've Gotta Get A Message To You" at Air Studios in London.  It is going to be the new single for the British singing trio The Soldiers.

The song featuring Robin on the lead will be released as a single from Demon Records on October 10th in United Kingdom, and will be included on The Soldiers' new album "Message To You" slated for release on October 24th.

First Japan Tour (Part II):Audio message from the Bee Gees

1972 Japan Tour program book

The program book for the first Japanese tour of the Bee Gees shows the Bee Gees as a foursome with Geoff Bridgeford. However, he quit the group just before the tour started and never actually set foot in Japan as a Bee Gee.

During the press conference, it was explained that, unlike Colin Petersen, he had been more of a session drummer and not exactly regarded as a member of the Bee Gees.

Whatever the situation was, this very old audio piece where the four Bee Gees spoke of their upcoming Japanese Tour was recorded in early 1972 and also features Geoff.

The sound quality may not be too great after all this time, but this may be the only piece where Geoff speaks to the Japanese fans of the group. It also suggests that his departure from the group was indeed a last-minute decision.

"TRIBUTE TO THE BEE GEES 2011: Relief Concert in Tokyo ‐
ROJITAS with SPICKS & SPECKS" is a tribute-turned-relief project, which started out as the celebration of the Bee Gees' music by two artists from different countries and very different backgrounds: Rojitas, a Cuban singer-songwriter, and Spicks & Specks, one of Japan's oldest Bee Gees tribute bands.

The original tribute project started to take shape when Rojitas contacted Spicks & Specks after reading our article about their Tokyo appearance at the end of 2009.

When they met, there was an instant connection. Despite the cultural and linguistical differences, they realized that they could communicate in the universal language: the music of the Bee Gees. A joint tribute plan throve on this newfound international friendship.
