I had no idea Robin and his son composed a classical orchestral "Titanic Requiem", which premiered just recently, in tribute to the sinking of the Titanic. This is one component of the song, and apparently the song Barry was singing to him when Robin woke out of a coma. Don't listen to this without a Kleenex.
What amazes me is that you never heard about any kind of disbandment with these brothers over the years. If there was, I never heard about it. They were very very close to each other, but a lot of times when you get families involved in business together, it can mean disputing. Not with these guys. My heart goes out to Barry...
We own the "One Night Only" PBS special they did back in '97. It's amazing...I highly recommend to all who enjoy their music.
