Two very different reunions: Bee Gees and Public Image Ltd.



Lydon_barry We can pretty much cover all the bases with this news: Both the Bee Gees and Public Image Ltd. are talking about reuniting. (Pretty sure one reunion didn't spark the other.)

Brothers Robin and Barry Gibb, the two surviving members of the Bee Gees. have told the London press that they will re-form for a series of concerts. The group hasn't performed since brother Maurice died in 2003. "The two of us are getting back together again," Robin Gibb announced on BBC Radio, according to a report in the Guardian. "[Maurice was] not just a brother but a comrade in arms really ... It's an emotional thing when you lose someone that close." 

Meanwhile, John Lydon -- not Johnny Rotten, remember -- has decided to breathe new life into his beloved Public Image Ltd. band after a 17-year hiatus. "When I finally cease working, then you can make a judgment on what PiL is or isn't," Lydon told the Guardian. "For me, it's an unfinished work which is set to continue for some time."

Public Image Ltd.'s new lineup will include two members from the late '80s -- guitarist Lu Edmonds and drummer Bruce Smith. "We'll see where we can go," Lydon told the Guardian. "Some things may be quite similar. Some may not."
