Gibb Unveils
Bee Gees Walkway

Thousands of Aussies lined the streets of Redcliffe, Queensland, Feb. 14 as Barry Gibb unveiled a bronze statue of the Bee Gees and opened the newly named Bee Gees Way.

The 70-meter walkway features pictures and stories curated by Gibb to tell their musical journey. Gibb and his late brothers Robin, Maurice and Andy grew up in Redcliffe.

“It was on a kitchen table in Redcliffe that the Bee Gees signed their first recording deal after being discovered at the local speedway,” said Mayor Allan Sutherland.

The bronze statue depicts the three Gibb brothers aged 9 and 12, when they would entertain sunbathers at the local beach. A visibly emotional Gibb told the crowd, “The one thing I’ll never forget is not wearing shoes.”

He was accompanied by his wife Linda, mother Barbara, son Steve, sister Lesley Evans and Maurice’s wife, Yvonne.
