music news 26/02/2021

The Bee Gees' Barry Gibb and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys could be pairing up for an icon song together.

The men are each incredible musicians and songwriters in their own rights, and the two of them coming together would be nothing short of momentous.

While nothing is officially confirmed, the pair have shared their mutual admiration for each other on social media - ending with Barry writing publicly to Brian that "we must collaborate together!".

Prior to that, Brian Wilson had shared a post about Barry on his Instagram page.

"I really admire Barry Gibb. He is like King Kong. He and I could probably work something up together. We met at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 1997. I presented them for their introduction. They sang “To Love Somebody.” Before the show, Barry came down to meet me and he just sat in the room. I heard later that he was nervous. I was nervous too."
