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

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”.

“I can’t think of any better way for the Gibb cousins to celebrate their father’s legacy,” said Andy’s daughter Peta.

“I hope there are more chances to do this in the future”, says Barry’s son Travis.

“When I was asked to be part of the project I was very happy to be a part of it, Robin John Gibb, son of Robin said. “It shows the musical legacy of the family is still strong. The family should do more of this.”

The album is titled ‘Please Don’t Turn Out The Lights’ with the eldest child of all four brothers singing the title track.

More details of the album will be announced in coming weeks.
