I've just gotta get a message to you!!
Since the days of the 1960's the music of your family has been one of my favorite blend of sound. For all that your talent has done to create "the sound" that is unmistakably The Bee Gees, I thank you for all those wonderful hits that you made and allowed other talents to shine through your generosity of songwriting including Tavares (More Than a Woman). Andy and Maurice left us so soon, that *we all did Not get a chance to express the appreciation that your love as brothers and talents as a group has meant to your many fans. Through the cloudy days as well as the brighter days ahead, just remember that you have fans who will continue to Wish You Well!!
