Bee Gees discography discography

Bee Gees’ first album was called ‘The Bee Gees Sing and Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs’. It did not sell well, but their second release shot them into superstardom. The self titled album went to number one in Great Britain, and it was the fastest selling album of all time in that country. It also reached number eleven in the United States.

‘Saturday Night Fever’ was a massive hit and Robin Gibb and his brothers were credited as the soundtrack artists even though many other performers had songs on that album. This led to them winning several awards. The Bee Gees released ‘Children of the World’, but it did not do nearly as well as the soundtrack.

‘Spirits Having Flown’ was very successful, and it reached number one in many countries around the world. It also produced two number one hits which helped Robin Gibb’s net worth increase significantly. Bee Gees even won several Grammys for this album.

Bee Gees albums discografie

Robin Gibb released ‘How Old Are You’ in 1983. The song was a modest hit, but it did not produce any other songs that charted anywhere.

The Bee Gees went on hiatus for many years because each of the brothers wanted to pursue solo careers. When they came back together in 1989, they released an album called ‘One’. It did not do well on the charts, but their next album ‘High Civilization’ did produce a top five hit which helped Robin Gibb’s net worth.

Bee Gees have sold more than 220 million albums worldwide. They are one of the most successful music groups ever in terms of record sales and concert attendance. Their old-fashioned pop sound was very unique in the 1970s.

Robin Gibb’s net worth came primarily from his music with The Bee Gees, but he did have quite a bit of success when he went solo as well. He even tried his hand at acting from time to time which added a little bit more to his net worth.

Robin Gibb is one of the most successful singers in music history, and many fans around the world will continue to love his work. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2012 after struggling with cancer for quite some time. When his estate was filed that year, his net worth was estimated at around $145 million. It is unclear how much has been added to that since then, but it is likely not significant.

The choir that he sings about is the Salvation Army and Robin Gibb’s own children were actually named after hymns found in their song book. He named one son, Spencer James and another son, Robin-John. Also, his daughter is named Melissa. In the song ” Saved by the Bell “, Robin Gibb sings about how he was affected that when he saw a young girl from The Salvation Army. He claims that she had been working for twelve hours, but still managed to smile happily and kindly greet him when he came in.”The lyrics of the song go as follows:

“When I first saw her, a young girl in a uniform of blue… She worked for twelve hours and still she looked so happy… Next day I went back to have another look at her, just to make sure that she was real. And as I walked into that place, those same eyes smiled again. Save a prayer for the lonely, just one word and she’d understood…”

In later interviews he also stated that he was working in a bank when he met her.
