Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Poignant! Barry Gibb: The last Bee Gee goes it alone, by Anthony Mason via @cbsnews #SundayMorning; @GibbBarry #resilience :-)






My last post on Robin Gibb and all things Bee Gees was on April 15, 2012, with a nod to the title of their Spirits Having Flown album, which came out right before I turned 18, and was titled: 
Tears soon to be flowing like rivers: Robin Gibb remains near death in a coma in a west London hospital, just days after his 'Titanic Requiem' premiered at Westminster Central Hall on Tuesday http://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/tears-soon-to-be-flowing-like-rivers.html


Anthony Mason's interviews with iconic music figures always bring out something special, just like his great piece on Glen Campbell did, which I recounted here on June 26, 2012 in a blog post titled, As a beloved music icon begins to leave the stage for good, due to Alzheimer's, we stop and wonder if a more beautiful song could possibly be sung about two such incongruous words? "Wichita Lineman," et al - Glen Campbell's Long Goodbye makes us so very sad and wistful; see him while you can...
