I knew both were very sick for a long time so, it didn’t come as something unexpected but sad nonetheless.

Sad, but I was expecting it. I did not know Jon Lord was ill. Robin as lead singer made the Bee Gees famous. By the mid 1970s, Barry was emerging with his cartoon chipmunk voice and I stopped liking them (“Knights On Broadway” was the last song I could stand).Challenge for everyone: trying to decide whose version of “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?” is better, The Bee Gees or Al Green?Bee Gees:youtube.com/watch?v=YPuIoVOEx1IAl:youtube.com/watch?v=Xq_79QuhBB8

was never a fan of Gibbs or the bee gee’s but was a little bummed about Jon Lord. was never a huge Purple fan but they had some great songs and were a huge influence on the world of rock.

The Brothers GIBB? Robin and Barry Gibb wrote “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart” for this famous crooner. When he declined, the Bee Gees recorded the song themselves and scored the first of their nine number one records with it. Who did they originally write it for?
not sure about your question but “to love somebody’ was originally written for otis redding.looked all over for your answer but couldn’t find a thing,,good luck to you
Andy Williams
who sang the song ‘how can you mend a broken heart’ in ‘the book of eli’ movie?
It is performed by the Bee Gees and was recorded in 1971. The song had been written by Barry and Robin Gibb in August 1970. The song was recorded on 28 January 1971 in London. The vocals are by Robin (solo in the opening verse), Barry (solo in the second verse and choruses) and Maurice (joins Barry and Robin in harmony in choruses.) The song was released as a single in May 1971 ahead of the album. This is the song that was featured in the movie “Book of Eli.”Hope this helps!Regards

where are from the bee gee’s?
Born in Douglas, on the Isle of Man, Barry and twins Robin and Maurice Gibb started their singing very young -when they were nine and six years old- in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, where the family had moved in 1955. The three brothers and two friends of theirs started performing as “The Rattlesnakes” and “Wee Johnny Hays and The Blue Cats” in some movie theaters in Chorlton. In 1958 the family moved again, this time to Australia, where the Gibb brothers went on performing as “Barry and The Twins” and “The BG’s.” In 1963 the Gibb brothers signed their first record deal and released their first single, “The battle of the blue and grey.” In three years the Bee Gees released thirteen singles and three albums; their first big hit came in 1966, with “S*p*i*c*k*s and specks.” Before the release of ‘S p i c k s and specks,’ the brothers had decided to try their luck in England, so in 1967 the family returned to the UK, where the three brothers signed with Robert Stigwood. From 1967 through 1969 the Bee Gees -with two more members: the Australians Colin Petersen and Vince Melouney- recorded 4 albums and had some huge hits – “New York Mining Disaster 1941”, “To Love Somebody”, “Massachusetts”, “Words”, “I Started a Joke,” “I’ve Gotta Get a Message To You”. In 1969 Melouney left the band and so did Robin to pursue a solo career. Soon Petersen followed them, leaving Barry and Maurice as the only band members until Robin rejoined his brothers one year later.From 1970 thru 1973 The Bee Gees recorded 4 more albums, and though they had some hits (“Lonely Days”, “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart”, “Run To Me”), the record sells slipped. Finally, in 1973 they recorded A Kick In The Head Is Worth Eight In the Pants, which the record company didn’t release, and the band decided to move to the States.In America, with the help of a new producer, Arif Mardin, The Bee Gees evolved to new musical forms, starting with the superb albums Mr Natural and Main course, followed by Children of the World, where the song “You should be dancing” anticipated Saturday Night Fever, the soundtrack that topped the charts for over 20 weeks and that remains the best selling soundtrack ever. The Bee Gees tremendous success continued with the 1979 album Spirits having flown.But soon the Disco era was over. In 1980, their new album Living eyes showed a very different style. In spite of being one of their best albums, it didn’t make well in the charts, and the Bee Gees did not record another album until 1987. In the meantime they released solo albums and produced other artists. They topped the charts again, this time as producers and songwriters, with “Guilty”, “Woman in love”, “Heartbreaker”, “Islands in the stream” and “Chain reaction” as highlights.In 1987 came the album E.S.P, with one Bee Gees song “You win again” topping one more time the European charts. From 1989 to 2001 they released five more studio albums showing their huge talent for songwriting. After the release of the album This Is Where I Came In in 2001, the brothers decided to take a break as the Bee Gees and work individually on different projects. The band came definively to an end on January 12, 2003, when Maurice Gibb died. Ten days later Robin Gibb announced the end of the Bee Gees. The two surviving brothers continue making music and do not rule out the possibility of working together in the future, though not as the Bee Gees, in respect for their brother Maurice.In a career spanning over forty years, the Bee Gees sold more than 175 million records worldwide, and have written dozens of hits for themselves and other acts. Over 1,000 artists have performed their songs, from Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Al Green or Barbra Streisand to Destiny’s Child, Happy Mondays, Celine Dion or Wyclef Jean.The Bee Gees, the second most successful band in music history after the Beatles, have had more than 200 no. 1 charts positions worldwide, themselves or with others acts singing their songs. They had no 1. hits in each decade from the 60s to the 90s, and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, that topped the US album charts for 24 weeks, remains the world’s biggest selling soundtrack ever.They have won 7 Grammy Awards and 28 Ivor Novello Awards and have been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame both in the United States and in Australia. They have also been honoured with Lifetime Achievement awards by the American Music Awards, the Brit Awards and the World Music Awards.
