Too bad most people only know The Bee Gees for their disco hits in the 70's. Infact, themselve didn't know they did disco until the USA did a war against it and boycotted it in 1980. Also ironically, the Bee Gees only did 3 years of disco music, from '76 to '79 in a span of a 50 years muscial career.
These guys did some pretty good stuff in the late 60's and early 70's, most notabely their 1969 album "Odessa", which is probably my favourite of them, very Prog-Rock and Psychedelic oriented album. Also their three firsts (Bee Gees 1st (1967), Idea (1968) and Horizontal (1968)) are really awesome, really influenced by the Beatles psychedelic songs at the time.
The Bee Gees are infact three brothers but let's not forget about their younger brother Andy Gibb, also popular artist in the 70's and 80's, who died in 1988. Then brother Maurice died in 2003 of a twisted intestine, which Robin had. Let's hope the best for him...
