Prince Charles knights Barry Gibb

Bee Gee Barry Gibb has received a knighthood at Buckingham Palace, and says he hopes his late brothers Robin and Maurice are proud of him.

Gibb is the last surviving member of the fraternal trio whose falsetto harmonies and disco beats powered huge 1970s hits including How Deep is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive and Tragedy. Maurice died in 2003 and his twin Robin in 2012.

After being knighted at the palace by Prince Charles on Tuesday, the 71-year-old songwriter said: “If it was not for my brothers, I would not be here.”

Judge denies Meek Mill’s request

A Philadelphia judge denied rapper Meek Mill’s petition for a new trial in his decade-old drug and gun convictions Monday despite support for the request by the district attorney’s office.

Mill’s attorneys had asked for a new trial based on credibility issues with former Philadelphia police officer Reginald Graham, who was the only officer to testify at Mill’s original trial on his 2007 arrest.

Judge Genece Brinkley said late Monday she was not convinced that Graham was not a credible witness in Mill’s case. Brinkley sentenced Mill in November to two to four years in prison for violating probation. Mill served five months before the state Supreme Court ordered his release on bail.
