Bee Gees

Profil:
A singing trio of brothers — Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, and Maurice Gibb. They were born on the Isle Of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, England, UK and during their childhood years moved to Brisbane, Australia, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to the UK and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic 'soft rock' act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers and Beach Boys did. Barry sang lead on many songs, in an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing.

In 1994 Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb & Maurice Gibb were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in 1997 the Band was inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame (Performer).

They were all given CBE's (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2001-2002 New Year's Honours List. The group's name was retired by the remaining brothers after Maurice died in January 2003.

However, as time passed, they decided to perform occasionally under the Bee Gees banner until brother Robin Gibb died in May 2012.

The Bee Gees need no introduction; they started out as a Beatles-esque 60s band, releasing a bunch of morbid ballady singles and a splendid concept double-album called 'Odessa', and then they went quiet before exploding in the late-1970s as a white soul/disco band/songwriting team. After a fallow 1980s they re-emerged in the 1990s as a goldmine for teen-pop bands, with 'How Deep Is Your Love' and 'Tragedy' being recycled a couple of times over. Maurice Gibb joined the late Andy Gibb, and the remaining duo decided to stop using the Bee Gees name in 2003.

There's a little trivia fact about the Bee Gees, which has been written about elsewhere. Whilst recording 'Staying Alive', the follow-up to 'Night Fever', they found themselves temporarily without a drummer. So their producer, Albhy Galuten, took part of the drum track for 'Night Fever', copied and pasted it onto two inch tape several times in a row, and looped the resulting length of tape around some microphone stands. In the process he invented the drum loop. And indeed it is noticeable that the drums in 'Staying Alive' don't change at all throughout the song, apart from a couple of overdubs. the same loop was apparently used in both 'More than a Woman' and 'I Am a Woman in Love' by Barbra Streisand.
