I loveeeee the Bee Gees! They are amazing and geniuses to me. Super talented but so underrated just because they did Disco. I love the whole sound track, its a flawless album to me and your welcome wink

When I was in middle school and played trumpet we played all the Bee Gees songs.

Night Fever used to be my favorite to play. We used to play Andy Gibb's Shadow Dancing

too.

Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

One of the greatest summer songs of all time.

Good night, sweet Prince | 7 June 1958 - 21 April 2016

Actually Andy died from myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle probably damaged by years of drug abuse.

Which is essentially suicide.


As Bob Daisley aptly put it (*towards alcohol)
"Wine is fine, but whiskey's quicker
suicide is slow with liquor"

Same case goes. Whatever abuse it was, it was abuse that provoked a response in whatever predisposition of birth he had" ....same theory applies to Robin Gibb...


The abuse contributed to a congenital predisposition which lead him to death from heart failure, an unacknowledged family disposition

That run at the start of 1978 is legendary. Barry Gibb had a hand in writing 6 different songs that were #1 for 23 of the first 30 weeks of the year! That's not even counting the last two weeks in '77. A backlash was probably inevitable.

I remember the late movie critic Gene Siskel said Purple Rain was basically Saturday Night Fever which was basically A Rebel Without a Cause. I can see an influence in the way Prince dance sequence was filmed in the finale.

yep...in April of '78,I believe there were three Bee Gees' songs in the Top 10,plus "Emotion" by Samantha Sang (written and produced by Barry) and "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman (written by The Bee Gees).By June,Andy Gibb's "Shadow Dancing" (written and produced by Barry) was at #1 for several weeks...and around the same time, there was Frankie Valli's "Grease" theme song,also written by Barry!
