As requested in the Jodi/Travis thread ...
This sounds too goofy --- so the original poster of the post below MUST provide a link,
Could someone start a thread please?
Barry Gibb, of the Bee Gees, is working on new music inspired by the highly controversial trial of Jodi Arias in America. The singer says he is writing a song about the case.
Arias was convicted in May of murdering her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander, a Mormon, in 2008 and faces a death sentence in Arizona. At the trial, which became a media circus, Arias claimed that she had killed the salesman in self-defence.
“What I am writing at the moment is a track about the Jodi Arias trial in America,” Gibb says. “The girl has been found guilty and is facing the death penalty. There will be at least one track about that – it has really struck me.”
Gibb is also working on new music influenced by the death of his beloved younger brother, Robin. It is inspired by their life together.
Robin Gibb died of cancer aged 62, while his twin brother Maurice Gibb, the third member of the Bee Gees, died unexpectedly after a heart attack in 2003 at the age of 53
