Happy 71st Birthday to Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb!
On this day in 1946, the oldest Gibb brother was born to Hugh and Barbara Gibb in Douglas on the Isle of Man. As the son of a bandleader, Barry grew up surrounded by music and started his first band (‘The Rattlesnakes’) at age 9 with his brothers and neighbors. Not much longer after their founding, The Rattlesnakes disbanded and the Bee Gees were born. Wishing our very own musical icon a happy 71st birthday!
