出生在爱尔兰海曼岛的Bee Gees(比吉斯兄弟)从小便受到音乐的熏陶，父亲Hugh是 乐团的团长，母亲Barbara则是位歌手。9岁那时Barry已经开始歌唱并弹奏父亲送给他的吉他，帮他伴奏的是两个6岁的双胞胎兄弟Robin与 Maur ice。Robin与Barry那独一无二的嗓音成为日后乐团的著名卷标，Maurice则是在吉他、贝斯及键盘等乐器上钻研。在十几岁时，他们随著父母 搬至澳洲，以Rattlesnakes为团名在布里斯本的赛马场表演。1966年的《Spicks & Specks》为他们在澳洲得到首张冠军单曲，1967年三人以Bee Gees为团名正式重返英伦。
◆吉柏兄弟，比吉斯合唱团作为一支历久不衰的创作队伍以及音乐表演者，或许关键字及主要原因正因为是「兄弟」。 Barry、Robin和Maurice Gibb兄弟之间的紧密联繫，啟发了身边眾多合作的音乐人；他们偶然的摩擦齟齬，也给週遭朋友带来不少麻烦。这 联繫带给他人一份美妙无比的音乐宝藏，也带给他们三人空前成就与悲剧；但最重要的，他们对流行音乐的贡献与付出是丰沛而永恒的，更为 无数后辈的灵光。
他们谱写的歌曲里有爱，有死亡，有夜晚，有舞蹈；他们唱出了乐观还有失落，唱出愉快的好时光，也唱出消极的坏日子。他们的节奏无 论何时都雋永地魅力十足，令人无法抵挡；他们歌中的文字有时简单、有时精巧；他们的旋律永远优美，他们的声音叫人无法忘怀。他们的音 乐活过无知的青春，也随著他们而日渐成熟；他们已然到达颠峰，但他们的旅程尚未结束。这不只是隻字片语，他们唱出了真正的不朽。
As if they finally realized that they couldn't quite compete with contemporary musical fashions any more, the Bee Gees moved firmly into "mature" territory with Still Waters. However, they are canny enough to realize that they shouldn't abandon the frothy disco that made them superstars in the late '70s — they should merely temper it with measured rhythms and tasteful melodies. Consequently, nothing on Still Waters is infectious, but it is pleasant, and while only a handful of singles stand out — "I Could Not Love You More" is a sweet ballad — itis still a fine, professional effort from these consummate professionals.
The Bee Gees were a British singing group consisting of three brothers: Barry Gibb and twins Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb. Not only were they successful in their own right, with seven Grammys to their name, their body of work has been re-interpreted by a huge variety of other artists, from Elvis and Dolly Parton to Billy Corgan and Feist. Of their 35 albums, 200 million copies have been sold, and most have hit the UK and US charts.
Though they were born on the Isle of Man, they had emigrated to Australia by the time Robin and Maurice were nine years old, in 1958. Even from a young age the brothers were singing together in harmony. By 1960 they were singing on television shows and in 1963 they secured a record deal. Barry Gibb and the Bee Gees Sing and Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs was released in 1965 and proved to be a minor success, with "Spicks and Specks" hitting No.1 in Australia.
In 1966 they returned to Britain, intending to capitalize on the burgeoning music scene of the time. By the following year they were on Top of the Pops having released Bee Gees First and finding success with the singles "New York Mining Disaster 1941", "Holiday" and "To Love Somebody". Within a year they had released three albums and had six hit singles, but the release of their two disc Odessa was a stress too far for the brothers and they split for 15 months.
In 1971, the reunited Bee Gees had a US No.1 with "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?", and then "Run to Me" was a UK Top 10 hit. But soon the band felt themselves stuck in a rut, unsure of which direction to take next. They moved to the United States and tried soul music, and then got interested in the burgeoning disco scene. Main Course (1975) was a minor hit, and "Jive Talkin'" topped the Hot 100, encouraging the Bee Gees that disco was the way to go. "You Should Be Dancing" was another chart-topper as Children of the World (1976) further established the Bee Gees pop-disco credentials.
Their fame went through the roof when they were heavily featured on the Saturday Night Fever (1977) soundtrack. Three of the Bee Gees' songs from it all went to No.1 in the US, and the film itself was a huge hit. The album sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it one of the biggest-selling LPs ever, but the decline of the disco era marked a similar decline in the fortunes of the Bee Gees, though they were by no means 'washed-up'. They continued to release albums into the 80s and 90s and they also wrote and produced songs for other artists.
Their last album was This Is Where I Came In (2001). Two years later, Maurice died and the spirit of the group died with him, despite initial protestations that they would soldier on without him. Since then, Barry and Robin have continued to work independently, and with other artists.
