Robin Gibbs’ Snow Maker And The Secrets Of The BeeGees’ Success

by | 9th, February 2009

BY now you’ll be wondering what Robin Gibb is up to. And the Mail can report that the BeeGee who looks like the family dentist has fathered Snow.

Precisely he has fathered: Snow Evelyn Robin Juliet Gibb.

Mum is said to be the “live-in housekeeper”, one Claire Yang, whom the Mail see fit to remind readers was born in Essex.

Gibbs’ Wife is calls Dwina, which might well be an anagram of something to do with her billing as a “bi-sexual former druid priest.” (Dwina – Druid women in nocturnal alignment.)

There is talk of her having “hit the roof”, which later turns out be “an understatement”.

It’s all so wonderfully unconventional, says the Mail, which then introduces the name of Robin and Dwina’s son. He’s called…Robin-John.

Snow Robin and Robin-John.

Far from being unconventional, Gibb seems to be lacking imagination. Schtupping the help is all very yesterday and naming your child after yourself – twice – suggests that he alone could be responsible for some of the BeeGees better hits.

The night fever, night fever: we know how to do it.
Gimme the night fever, night fever: we know how to show it.

Feel I’m goin’ back to Massachusetts,
Something’s telling me I must go home.
And the lights all went down in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it’s like on the outside?
Don’t go talking too loud, you’ll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

Although we must concede that Snow is original – as anyone who has ventured outside this winter will attest…
