Introducing The Bee Gees

The Bee Gees in 1973


The Bee Gees were a musical group founded in 1958. The group's line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. Born in the Isle of Man, the Gibb brothers moved in the late 1950s to Australia.


In 1967, they released their second single "New York Mining Disaster 1941" and, in 1968, the singles "Massachusetts", "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" and "I Started a Joke.


The double-album Odessa (1969) was the best Bee Gees album of the '60s.


The three brothers reunited in the later part of 1970. In 1975, they eventually crafted more rhythmic disco songs, like "Jive Talkin'" and "Nights on Broadway." The album Children of the World (1976) included the single "You Should Be Dancing".


In 1977, The Bee Gees participated in the creation of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Three singles ("How Deep Is Your Love", "Stayin' Alive", and "Night Fever") reached No. 1 in many countries around the world.


The Spirits Having Flown album (1979) yielded three more No. 1 hits: "Too Much Heaven", "Tragedy", and "Love You Inside Out".


In 1980 Barry Gibb worked with Barbra Streisand on her album Guilty, including the famous single "Woman in Love". In 1982, Dionne Warwick did her comeback with the single "Heartbreaker", written by the Bee Gees. In 1985, Diana Ross released the album Eaten Alive, with the single "Chain Reaction", also written by the Band.


Following Maurice's unexpected death in January 2003, Barry and Robin retired the group's name. Robin died of cancer in May 2012.

Barry Gibb is the eldest and last surviving Gibb brother.


The Bee Gees' career record sales total more than 220 million, ranking them among the best-selling music artists of all time (...)
