The following teaser is from the May 24, 2011 edition of Paisley Daily Express:
MUSIC fans were left in a spin when Bee Gees star Robin Gibb paid a surprise visit to Paisley to carry out some research into his ancestors.
The award-winning singer was spotted with a film crew at Paisley’s museum and library as he began a hunt for family links to Renfrewshire that date back centuries.
He was also seen being interviewed in other parts of the town.
Robin – who formed the Bee Gees along with his brothers Barry and Maurice before going on to achieve worldwide fame – is to feature in a new series of the popular BBC TV show Who Do You Think You Are?, which helps celebrities to trace their roots.
Yesterday, museum and library staff were remaining tight-lipped about the family tree secrets that 61-year-old Robin uncovered during his two-day visit to Paisley.
One insider told the Paisley Daily Express: “No-one is allowed to say too much because bosses at the museum and library have signed a confidentiality agreement with the BBC.
“However, Robin does seem to have found lots of items of interest during his visit to Paisley.
