This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Robin Gibb (vocals)


BANDS:
  • Bee Gees
  • Robin Gibb Band

BIOGRAPHY:

Everybody knows (or should know) who Robin Gibb is. Member of Bee Gees, he was born Robin Hugh Gibb on December 22nd, 1949 at Douglas, Isle Of Man, England. Twin brother of the late Maurice Gibb, both formed Bee Gees with elder brother, Barry Gibb. Another brother was Andy Gibb who also had a short succesful career until his sad death.


BEE GEES


The Brothers Gibbs, after using other stage names, finally called themselves Bee Gees in 1963:

BEE GEES #1
1963-1966
Barry Gibb
vocals, guitar
Robin Gibb
vocals
Maurice Gibb
vocals

Bee Gees came back to England in 1966, getting a new recording contract, and adding Colin Peterson on drums as their 4th member.

BEE GEES #2
1966-Jul 67
Barry Gibb
vocals, guitar
Robin Gibb
vocals, keyboards
Maurice Gibb
vocals, bass
Colin Peterson
drums

In July 1967, guitarist Vince Melouney joins Bee Gees:

BEE GEES #3
Jul 67-Dec 68
Barry Gibb
vocals, guitar
Robin Gibb
vocals, keyboards
Maurice Gibb
vocals, bass
Vince Melouney
guitar
Colin Peterson
drums

Melouney stayed with the band until December 1968.

In December 1968, Bee Gees are a quartet again:

BEE GEES #4
Dec 68-May 69
Barry Gibb
vocals, guitar
Robin Gibb
vocals, keyboards
Maurice Gibb
vocals, bass
Colin Peterson
drums

But in May 1969, Robin Gibb surprisingly announces that he leaves the band to start his solo career.


AND THEN


Robin started his solo career, releasing the album Robin´s reign.


BEE GEES (again)


During 1970, Robin and Maurice Gibb started recording together, and Barry Gibb joined them soon after. Bee Gees were active again in August 1970:

BEE GEES #7
Aug 70-Feb 71

Their first new album together was 2 years on.

In February 1971, the great Alan Kendall joins Bee Gees:

BEE GEES #8
Feb 71-Feb 72
Barry Gibb
vocals, guitar
Robin Gibb
vocals, keyboards
Maurice Gibb
vocals, bass
Alan Kendall
guitar
Geoff Bridgford
drums

Geoff Bridgford left them in the middle of the recording of To who it may concern, so legendary sessionman Clem Cattini was used in the album.

In February 1972, percussionist Chris Karan becomes new Bee Gees drummer:

BEE GEES #9
Feb 72-Jul 72
Barry Gibb

Robin passed away on May 20th, 2012. in London, England, due to colon cancer He was 62, and a legend to me, who loves all Bee Gees classic songs since I was very young. I started buying their albums soon, and I also bought several Robin solo albums, starting by Robin´s reign. Robin´s voice give me shivers in many of their songs. Rest in peace, Robin.

    • Producer: George Martin
    • Technical: Nigel Walker
    • Comments: This was the soundtrack from the movie starring Peter Frampton and The Bee Gees. As many musical movies, it has its ups and downs, as no every performer was a real singer (Steve Martin, for example). But it has its fine moments. Originally a 2LP (my copy includes a big (& ugly) poster), it has 28 tracks, all of them written by The Beatles. Arranged and produced by George Martin, it features Billy Preston, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith or Paul Nicholas. But the great thing is when you check the credits list. With great surprises there. The regular musicians team comprises: Robert Ahwai (guitar), Peter Frampton (guitar solos), Wilbur Bascomb (bass), Max Middleton (keyboards), Bernard Purdie (drums), + Tower of Power Horn Section: Greg Adams (trumpet), Emilio Castillo (sax), Mick Gillette (trombone, trumpet), Steve Doc Kupka (sax), Lenny Pickett (sax). That is, many former Jeff Beck bandmates. And the list of featured guests is: Jeff Beck (guitar), the superb Larry Carlton (guitar), Ricky Hitchcock (guitar), Ray Russell (guitar), Fred Tackett (guitar), Clive Chaman (bass), Francis Monkman (keyboards), Ray Cooper (percussion), Victor Feldman (percussion), and from Toto: David Hungate (bass), David Paich (keyboards) and Jeff Porcaro (drums).
