The Bee Gees Formed in 1958

The Bee Gees, one of the most successful and influential musical groups of all time, were formed in 1958 by brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio began their career as a pop-rock group in Australia before moving to England in 1967 and becoming one of the most successful acts of the 1970s disco era.

Early Years

The Bee Gees began performing together as a family act in 1958 when Barry was just 8 years old. They released their first single, “The Battle of the Blue and Grey,” in Australia in 1960. The song was a minor hit but it marked the beginning of their career. Over the next few years, they released several more singles and two albums before relocating to England in 1967.

International Success

In England, the Bee Gees signed with Robert Stigwood’s RSO Records and released their third album, “Bee Gees 1st,” which featured their first international hit single, “New York Mining Disaster 1941.” This was followed by several more successful albums and singles throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s. In 1975, they released their breakthrough album “Main Course” which spawned the hits “Jive Talkin'” and “Nights on Broadway.” This marked the beginning of their most successful period as they went on to become one of the biggest acts of the disco era.
