The year 2017 ended with the great news that Barry is now Sir Barry Gibb. Let us hope that another year will bring another batch of great news!
As this is the Year of Dogs in the Japanese (Oriental) Zodiac calendar, we are planning to do a series of articles about the Bee Gees and dogs this month.
Some people are dog lovers while others are totally devoted to cats. It seems the Bee Gees were more dog people.
Photographed alongside Robin here is his red setter, Penny. During the Mythology Tour Barry revealed onstage that Robin’s fire-engine red hair was inspired by the color of his dog. The idea was to dye his hair to match his dog! (Who would have known?) Also, did you notice how Barry and Penny literally seem to see eye to eye here?
In "Legend," the illustrated history of the Bee Gees, Robin was illustrated as a red setter for this reason.
