Bee Gees made Freemen of Douglas

BEE Gees Barry and Robin Gibb's arrival at Douglas Town Hall in the Isle of Man today (Friday) was heralded with a performance from Ballacottier School's junior choir. The brothers and their late sibling Maurice were made Freemen of the Borough. The honour was bestowed on them in recognition of their contribution to music over the past 50 years. As the brothers arrived for the private ceremony in the council chamber they were greeted by the 38-strong Ballacottier School junior choir singing Roll Away by Davy Knowles.Full report here.
