Welcome to 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 Stories will be posted from time to time. Lately, my work schedule has been demanding, and I have been busy with teaching and mentoring. My book is in final editing, and it really does exist, although I feel as though I wrote it decades ago! Hang on; it’s getting ready to publish.

This is a story that many couples can relate to, and I hope you enjoy it.

I know that all of us Bee Gee fans adore the music, and I have played it since I was very young in my teen years, all through college and  for my kids, but something else that goes along with the music for me is the way that Barry and Linda Gibb have inspired me and my husband. We met at a dance where Bee Gee music was being played (in late 70’s) and fell in love that night.

After we were married, we kind of grew up as Barry and Linda did. Over the years, we had children just as they did, and it was so inspirational to watch the way they raised their children no matter what the challenges. They got through tough times and illness and death and held each other up. We have done the same.

The music is wonderful, but their example of what family is all about is just as important. Thank you, Barry and Linda, for guiding all the fans through your love. Whether or not you realize it, you have supported my family for decades.

So much of the music is about love and relationships, and I’m sure their own love has been one of the reason the music came about and hits home so deeply. I am grateful.

    Same here. We actually got married two weeks before them August 15, 1970. So our 50th is also coming up always love their music and always respected them for staying together. It’s hard enough in life without being in the limelight all the time. And then there are our kids LOL who sometimes put us in a spot like we don’t want to be in. Anyway I wish them many years more together. And the health to enjoy those years God grants them.
