HOW HE HAS CHANGED

Welcome to morobinbarrystories.com! Please join me on twitter @morobinbarry. This site is for Bee Gee fans everywhere who would like to share and read stories of fun, joy, love and inspiration for Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. (Andy is not forgotten and is included at times). If you’d like to share a story, please email it to me at morobinbarrystories@gmail.com. Stories will be posted often, some from my collected tales and some from the new ones as they come in. Others I will save for my book, which is in progress. At times, I will write about events that relate to the Gibbs that I hope fans will enjoy.

January 16, 2015

This has been a tough week for Bee Gee fans with thoughts of Mo in the forefront of our minds. To say fans are emotional is an understatement. So, I started to think about how lucky we all are that Barry did the Mythology Tour and how we can play those memories over and over as our minds rewind to the concerts. One of the most special memories was being up close when Barry sang “I’m On Fire”. Anyone can watch the Youtube video, but being there was unlike any experience I’ve ever had. The song seemed to transport Barry and tap into emotions he probably didn’t know he had deep inside of his heart. Inevitably, the thousands in the audience pulled out the tissues and dabbed at their eyes, and we all took deep breaths and swallowed a hard swallow of deep emotion as we got the chills. So, here it is and here are some of the photos from that moment at the Chicago concert. Excuse me while I go and get my kleenex box.
