Paul McCartney is getting the royal treatment from his fellow musicians in a new covers compilation that spans the former Beatle’s time with the Fab Four and Wings, along with his solo career.
This installment is taken from a 1988 interview with the Bee Gees, where they discusses the effect that ‘Saturday Night Fever’ had on their career. This one is a bit bittersweet, in retrospect: Maurice and Robin Gibb do most of the talking (Barry was present, but had a cold). And of course, Maurice and Robin are, sadly, no longer with us.
Gibb—introduced by Fallon as Barry effin’ Gibb— showed that even after more than 50 years, he can still hit those high notes with no problem.
The Bee Gees celebrated their 50th anniversary four years ago, and Barry Gibb is continuing the celebration by hitting the road this spring.
Bee Gees cofounder Barry Gibb will make his debut on the hallowed stage of the Grand Ole Opry this month.
Though Barry Gibb has been publicly silent since the death of his younger brother Robin, a new video released by the surviving Bee Gee is a loving tribute to his fallen bandmate.
