The Bee Gees: Biography In Brief
by Terri Bridge
Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb---together as brothers all their lives, and as a singing group nearly as long. Their career began when the three gathered in a bedroom in their home in Manchester, England, and began working out the natural harmonies which today are one of the hallmarks of the Bee Gees' sound. They worked these out so well that their mom believed her sons' harmonizing was actually a radio playing in the next room. Father Hugh Gibb, a bandleader in his own right, and mother Barbara Gibb, a former professional singer, knew their sons possessed special talents. Maurice has said that their dad envisioned them as a children's version of the Mills Brothers, an American family quartet extremely popular in England and the US from the
thirties through the sixties. The Mills Brothers were known for their tight, beautiful harmonies. So it was then that the Rattlesnakes (Barry, age 9, and Robin and Maurice, age 6) began performing at the local Manchester, England, cinemas between films. A little later, they began calling themselves "Wee Johnny Hays and the Blue Cats", though no one seems to remember exactly why! In 1958, Hugh and Barbara decided to look for "greener pastures" (and warmer climates!). They moved the entire family (now comprised of Hugh and Barbara, and older sister Leslie, Barry, Robin, Maurice, and baby brother Andy) to Australia, settling in the Brisbane area.
On December 28 at 12:30 PM, Ashley and Terese became the proud parents of little Maximus John Crompton Gibb, who weighed in at 6 pounds. He'll be called Max, and while there were a few complications and Max was three weeks early, he's doing fine now, and Terese is well on the mend as well. They are at home, and if you wish to send a card, please send to Ashley and Terese at 6538 Collins Avenue, PMB #379, Miami Beach, FL 33141 USA. Max adds to a long line of births at this time of the year--- Robin and Mo on Dec 22, cousin Nina on Dec 27, Aunt Ali on Dec 29, and Uncle Travis on Jan 10!
The hits and history of the Bee Gees.
New York, NY —Just in time for the holidays, Eagle Rock Entertainment presents the hits and history of the Bee Gees with the release of Bee Gees: Collectors Edition. This specially packaged 2 DVD set features the amazing biographical program Official Story, as well as the sensational performance One Night Only. The collection features full live performances of “Massachusetts,” “Night Fever,” “More than a Woman,” “Heartbreaker,” “Tragedy,” “Jive Talkin’,” “Grease,” “Stayin’ Alive” and many more, as well as guest appearances by Celine Dion and Frankie Valli. Bee Gees: Collectors Edition 2 DVD Box Set will be available December 9, 2003 for $24.98. This program has a running time of 220 minutes.
Official Story is the fully authorized story of the Bee Gees told in their own words. The brothers Gibb paint the picture of the road taken from singing in their room as children through all of the successes that have helped make them the second best selling group of all time. One Night Only is the smash 1997 performance in which the Bee Gees not only perform all of their hits, but they also perform hits that they wrote for other artists (which, naturally, went on to be chart toppers). Among the highlights in this show are “Islands in the Stream”, “Our Love (Don’t Throw It Away)” (a special duet with late brother Andy Gibb), along with “Immortality”, which features a guest appearance by Celine Dion.
