(di Enzo , 06/02/2008 @ 15:12:24, in Dal web, linkato 1558 volte)

La Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), la compagnia che cura la pubblicazione in tutto il mondo dei lavori degli artisti sotto contratto per la Warner Music Group, ha annunciato il rinnovo del contratto con Barry Gibb. In precedenza, nel 2002, Barry aveva raggiunto un accordo con la Warner per la pubblicazione di tutto il suo catalogo di composizioni, ed anche per le future realizzazioni. L'accordo è stato oggi rinnovato, e Barry si è detto "orgoglioso di continuare il rapporto con la Warner" con la quale "continuerà a condividere la sua attività", che si augura sia "premiante per entrambe le parti". I fans si augurano che dal rinnovo di questo contratto scaturisca al più presto la pubblicazione di nuovi progetti di Barry, primo tra tutti il più volte annunciato (ed atteso) album country, che dovrebbe vedere la luce entro l'autunno del 2008.

 "Warner/Chappell Music Signs New Worldwide Publishing Agreement With Grammy Award-Winning Songwriter, Producer and Singer Barry Gibb"

NEW YORK, NY, Feb 05, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the global music publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp. today announced a worldwide publishing agreement with Grammy Award-winning producer, hit songwriter and singer, Barry Gibb.
As both leading member of the Bee Gees and the co-writer of the group's remarkable body of work, Gibb has been awarded seven Grammys and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame along with his brothers in 1997. Originally signed to Warner/Chappell Music in 2002, the company will continue publishing Gibb's catalog of past work as well as his future compositions.

Gibb co-founded the Bee Gees in 1958 with his brothers, Robin and Maurice, and they became the most successful vocal trio of all time. As a member of one of the best-selling groups in history, Gibb's incredible career has spanned five decades and has yielded more than 19 No. 1 records in North America.

In making the announcement, Dave Johnson, CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, said, "Barry is one of the premier pop artists of our time, whose songwriting talent and production abilities have contributed to the success of numerous hit projects. We are honored to work with an artist of his caliber and we are thrilled with his choice to stay with Warner/Chappell Music."

Gibb added, "I am very proud to continue my ongoing relationship with Warner/Chappell and I look forward to a very exciting and mutually rewarding musical adventure."

Gibb, along with his brothers, co-wrote the featured songs for the film "Saturday Night Fever," which became the number one soundtrack of all time. It is his falsetto which created the trademark sound. The Bee Gees are the only group to write, sing and co-produce six consecutive No. 1 singles in a row. Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson also took part in this collaboration. The Gibb brothers are the first songwriters ever to have five songs in the top ten simultaneously. In addition, they are the only British songwriters to have No. 1 records for four consecutive decades. Their greatest honors include their International Songwriters Hall of Fame, multiple Lifetime Achievement Awards from organizations such as the World, American and British Music Awards, the Australian Record Industry Hall of Fame, Golden Europa Awards, the Ivor Novello Fellowship Award, an additional Grammy Legend Award, and a "CBE" (Commander of the British Empire).
