Today In Reunions: Public Image Limited, The Bee Gees, And Other Bands Rise Again

By: Maura / September 8, 2009


• Reality-TV refugee John Lydon has announced that Public Image Limited has ceased its 17-year hiatus and will play a five-date reunion tour this winter, albeit without original members Jah Wobble and Keith Levene. Here’s hoping they at least get a TV appearance or two out of it. [Guardian]

• Robin Gibb used his appearance on the BBC’s cricket show Test Match Special to tout upcoming Bee Gees shows featuring him and his brother Barry; after Robin’s twin, Maurice, passed away in 2003 the brothers had said that they would not perform under the Bee Gees moniker again, but apparently the surviving Gibbs have “got through the breakwater of emotions” and will start performing live shortly.

• The Stooges will bring Raw Power guitarist James Williamson back into the fold for a performance of that album in its entirety next May. [RS]

• Oh yeah, the new album by the reunited Phish is out today! [Amazon]
