1. Ray La Montagne - Trouble Ray is the most recent pop rock, grass-roots singer that I really like. He has the voice that I wish I was born with. His voice in Trouble is so raspy and organic but it doesn't feel like he is faking it or trying too hard.

2. John Mayer - Stop This Train

Yesterday, all our troubles seemed so far away

At a time when some Canto-pop stars are mired in controversy, evergreen singer Kenny Bee seems a throwback to a more innocent age. It's 35 years since the guitarist and songwriter first took the stage with local band The Wynners and his blend of pop and romantic balladry has endured while many other stars have faded away.

Question of the week: Name your favourite band or singer.

Vanessa Green, 14

Jay Chou is my favourite artist at the moment. He has a great voice and is very good at rapping. I love most of his songs, as many have catchy lyrics and a good rhythm.

Scratching the high-pitch itch

Robin Gibb's latest tour is testament to the enduring appeal of the Bee Gees

Despite sales of more than 100 million, some people have trouble taking the Bee Gees and their falsetto voices, tight trousers and string of disco hits seriously.

The Bee Gees in Hong Kong

Some 33 years ago, on the evening of March 19, 1972, thousands of excited fans packed into the old Hong Kong stadium for a very special event. The Bee Gees were giving their first concert here.

As expected, the show was a total success.

The South China Morning Post the next day described it as 'one of the largest pop shows ever presented in Hong Kong'.

Hopes of staging Bee Gees concert in SAR stayin' alive

Hopes of a Bee Gees concert being staged in Hong Kong were reignited yesterday after a concert promoter said he would bring the supergroup to the SAR despite their asking price of more than US$1 million (HK$7.8 million).

Fond memories

I refer to the report headlined 'Bee Gees asking price dashes concert hopes' (South China Morning Post, January 18).

Bee Gees ticketing disaster April '99

It's a Tragedy. You Should be Dancing at Kai Tak on April 3 - but the threat of ticket piracy has forced the postponement of the Bee Gees' first Hong Kong concert in 24 years.

Fans hoping to see the pop supergroup back in the SAR might have to wait until the end of the year.

Fourth visit for Bee Gees

VETERAN pop stars the Bee Gees will perform at the former airport site at Kai Tak on April 3, after touring New Zealand and Australia. The 40,000 tickets for the show will go on sale next month, priced at $380 to $980. The three British-born Gibb brothers played in Hong Kong three times during the disco era - in 1972, 1973 and 1975.

Celine Dion

Celine Dion Live At Kai Tak January 25, 8.45 pm For those who feared it would, Celine Dion's concert at Kai Tak certainly did not go on and on: in fact, it lasted less than 90 minutes. Despite that, however, there did not seem to be any loud grumbles. Most of the audience, if anything, appeared to have been pleasantly surprised.

Bee Gees seek spot to record HK shot

ANYBODY know of a suitable venue for the Bee Gees (you know, the guys - all hair and top Cs) to do an MTV-type Unplugged session in Hong Kong? We hear that the Gibb brothers - Barry, Maurice and Robin - will be here some time in November to promote their latest album. And they've offered to do an intimate acoustic set for a selected audience.
