Funny As Hell




Welcome to Morobinbarrystories! Please join me on twitter @morobinbarry. This site is for Bee Gee fans everywhere who would like to read and share stories of hope, joy, love and inspiration for Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. If you’d like to share a story, please email it to me at Stories will be posted often, some from my collected tales and some from the new ones as they come in. Some I will save for my book (stories are placed at the end of each chapter). Hopefully, the book will be completed by fall of this year! At times, I will post articles about Gibb events that I hope the fans will enjoy.

Yes, that sense of humor makes us all smile, doesn’t it?


I have a silly sense of humor, and my Mom always told me I’d either get thrown out of class for being impertinent or have the teacher rolling on the floor. She was sure I’d become a comedian and entertain people when I grew up, and that was even after I started playing the guitar in middle school and became obsessed with it and the Bee Gees. I did have a nutty sense of what was humorous, but I always got a laugh from my friends and anyone else who happened to be around.

I got this crazy sense of humor in part from the Bee Gees. I was a fan from the time I can remember talking. My Dad loved them, and I’d watch TV with him whenever they were on any show promoting an album and I loved how funny they were. He said that Maurice was just a “cut-up”, Robin was “quick-witted beyond belief” and that Barry was “sharp as a tack and always had a good comeback for what his brothers would say”.

When my Dad took me to my first Bee Gee concert in 1997,  I was mesmerized by them, truly the best night of my life.They were incredible, and I became an even bigger fan, if that was possible.


When YouTube began, I started looking up all the shows and interviews I could, and I loved their sense of fun and silly way with reporters. They were my favorite musicians, but I also loved the way they played off of each other. I felt as though they were the kind of guys I could be around and give a comeback to if they said something funny. They seemed to be regular guys who were funny as hell.


I will always appreciate that humor because it’s what gets me through life in a positive way. Not many musicians are funny, and no one comes close to Maurice or Robin Gibb. Sometimes I think Barry was the catalyst for their humor, but they kept each other on their toes no matter what the situation.I love their music, but I love their humor even more. Only guys who are really smart can be as creative as them, and I laugh at the thought of the three of them talking over each other in front of a reporter who is in way over his head. The Gibb brothers are just too quick for anybody to handle. I’m smiling now just thinking about them, and I thank my Dad for loving them and giving me the chance to experience their music and great sense of humor.
