Saturday Night Murder -- Barry Gibb takes on Jodi Arias ...

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

He sounds lonely.

Wasn't "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" similar?

Barry is actually touring with his son Stephen and Maurice's daughter Samantha. Robin's son Spencer, who is a very talented musician based in Austin, wasn't invited on the tour. Spencer is actually a better musician then the two Gibb offspring's that are touring with Barry. Spencer wasn't invited, and was sad and disappointed that he wasn't. He didn't say why he wasn't, but hinted there may have been some behind the scenes issues that caused him not to be asked to do the tour.

Robin's kids and Andy's daughter are the only Gibb children that have accents. The rest were raised in America.

I suppose it makes as much sense as David Byrne and Fatboy Slim collaborating on a disco-themed musical about Imelda Marcos.

Holy crap, R4... I thought you were joking:

David Byrne Finds A Disco Muse In Imelda Marcos
