The Silver Clef Awards, established in 1976, are given by members of the music industry as both a recognition of service and as a fundraiser for the charity organization Nordoff-Robbins. The Lifetime Achievement Award was started in 2005 as part of an expansion of the honors. Recent honorees include Andrew Lloyd Weber, U2, Status Quo, Tony Bennett and the Eagles.

Gibb, 66, said he was honored to be receiving the award. “Having had music play such an important role in my own life for over 50 years, I can truly appreciate the work Nordoff Robbins do, using music to transform other people’s lives.”

This is the second time that Gibb has been honored by the organization. The Bee Gees were previously acknowledged with a special achievement award at the 1993 ceremony.

Also being honored are Coldplay (British Act Award), Labrith (Innovation) and Alison Balsom (Classical). Honorees are yet to be named for Newcomer, Ambassadors of Rock, International Award, Icon Award and the Silver Clef.

"Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
