“I think any everybody, any new songwriter or an artist starting out today should establish their own style rather than try and copy everybody else because that the only thing that’s gonna work.”

~Robin Gibb

“We are brothers first, a pop group second”

~Barry Gibb

“We love and have been influenced by many country artists particularly Roy Orbison.”

~Maurice Gibb

“If you can write a good song that last for years. I mean that is a great blessing.”

~Maurice Gibb

“What songwriting’s always been to me is basically like a flash. I have a flash of an idea or a flash of a chorus, or a flash of a song before it’s actually constructed. That hasn’t changed, it’s continued right through my life. I’ll get up in the middle of the night and put something on a dictaphone and go back to sleep.”

~Barry Gibb

“There’s a lot more to being an artist than just making a record, you know, if you’re a songwriter and you’re a musician, there’s a lot more I believe that goes into being an artist instead of just having a good-looking face and singing someone else’s music. There’s a lot more to it. That’s my philosophy.”

~Robbin Gibb

Bee Gees

“The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, England, United Kingdom and during their childhood years moved to Brisbane, Australia, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to the United Kingdom 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. The group sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers and The 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. The group’s name was retired after Maurice died suddenly in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to “Britain’s first family of harmony”[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America’s first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees’ record sales total more than 200 million,[2] easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says “Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees”.[3] …”
