The Bee Gees Memorial

Not many people outside Australia know that the members of the famous pop music group of the sixties, “The Bee Gees” actually grew up in Redcliffe, Australia. The Bee Gees rose to world popularity, fame and fortune over the next two decade with iconic songs and their trademark falsettos. And so, the township of Redcliffe has finally honoured the legendary boys: fifty years later. Only Barry Gibb, the only surviving brother was there to unveil this monument and re-visit the small city to the North of Brisbane.

Redcliffe, once the place where you: had to live, didn’t choose to live, is now coming of age and  “staying alive.” Here is the Sunday market.

Barrie is no doubt trying to “stay alive” but even when he passes, the music will not.

Something to ponder about.

I liked the juxtaposition of the old fishing boats, some where people of Hong Kong still live, and the monolithic skyscrapers, where thousands live. A very ancient and modern place of residence.
