Default Barry Gibb

Along with Ringo, Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees will also be knighted. Congrats to Barry.

I'm so happy for Barry. He was always my favorite Bee Gee. I wish his brothers were here to see this. They probably would be knighted too before they died.

That's Sir Barry to you, missy! I'm just being a goofball. This is such a deserved honor - I mean honour. Mr. Gibb is a genius and a humble, kind man.

I'm absolutely delighted for Barry. He totally deserves it, although I remain very disappointed that he cancelled his Australian tour.

I always liked the twins a little more , but I'm quite happy for Barry (and Ringo--my favorite Beatle lol)

Just wish Robin and Mo could have lived long enough to be knighted too.
