R.I.P Robin Gibbs! – Bee Gees Tribute : Classic Records, Mixtapes, Full Concerts VIdeos (BEE GEES LIVE IN MELB 1974)


Robin Gibb‘s fragile voice was one of Bee Gees‘ many gifts

He was a great songwriter as well, with and without his brothers, but their greatest attribute collectively and separately was being able to reinvent themselves.

Even as children, there was never any doubt in the minds of the Gibb brothers that they were going to be pop stars.

“We knew we wanted to make records and to write,” Robin Gibb once said, “but we never knew where we were going with it. We would daydream and night dream and every other kind of dream.”

The dream came true, several times over, but during the group’s fledgling years in Brisbane in the early 1960s the Bee Gees found success hard to come by.

Spicks and Specks, the song that became their first Australian hit, was their 12th single.

Before they could enjoy that moment the Gibb brothers, Barry, Maurice and Robin, had gone back home to England looking for a break. It was that willingness to move on that made the Bee Gees and its individual components successful for decades, taking them from the suburbs of Brisbane to the stadiums of the world after their phenomenal success in the disco era of the 1970s.

Robin’s final work is a good example of his diversity. After years of crafting songs for international artists such as Celine Dion and Kenny Rogers, Robin turned another corner by composing, along with his son Robin-John, the Titanic Requiem, a classical piece to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster.

The record was released last month.

On one track, Don’t Cry Alone, Gibb’s final contribution as a vocalist is sadly prophetic.

“No, don’t you ever doubt me

Ill be there for you forever

Don’t you ever cry

Ill sweep away your tears and sorrow

And I’ll be with you close tomorrow”.

Beyond the sadness of that lyric, however, is the distinctive, fragile voice that could only be Robin Gibb. It has changed little since the Bee Gees records on which he took lead vocals 45 years ago, such as I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You and Massachusetts.

It’s a voice that will live on through those landmark recordings, from pop to disco and classical, songs that made Robin Gibb one of the most successful musicians of the 20th century.

VIDEO: 60+ min interview with DJ Premier & Pete Rock (by DJPremierBlog.com)


Illusive is thrilled to announce the first ever Australian tour by legendary New York producer/DJ, Pete Rock. The self proclaimed Soul Brother #1 hits Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth in January 2012.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time, Pete Rock first rose to prominence as part of the hugely influential duo Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. From there, he has embarked on an unrivaled production and solo career spanning two decades, seeing him produce iconic records for Run DMC, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Ghostface Killah and Redman to name a few. He is credited as playing a major role in the merging of elements of jazz and funk into hip hop music, and has most recently been brought back into rap’s consciousness with his production on Jay-Z & Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ album (‘The Joy’).

The man has a record collection that clocks well into the 90,000s and a resume featuring the likes of ‘Down With The King’, ‘The World is Yours’, ‘Shut ‘em Down’ and ‘T.R.O.Y’. His highly acclaimed live show is a journey through the mind of one of the most influential musicians of the past few decades. Don’t miss it.
