The Bee Gees: Humble Beginnings

The Bee Gees: Humble Beginnings

Having been in show business from a young age, the Gibb brothers began their careers singing at Australia’s holiday resorts and dive bars. Barry recalls singing at a bar with “a galvanized roof and the water was pouring onto the stage, and we had to stand there soaking and singing.”

In 1960 the brothers began gaining recognition from TV producers which lead to appearances on shows such as “Strictly for Moderns” and others.

The brothers drew a great deal of inspiration from The Beatles. By 1967 they had released 11 singles in Australia but it was time to move onto the U.K, where they had met their manager Robert Stigwood.
