Barry Gibb set to launch first solo tour
As a member of the Bee Gees, Barry Gibb played guitar alongside his twin brothers Maurice and Robin. Together, they became known for hits like "How Deep Is Your Love," "Run To Me," and "Night Fever." In fact, their run of success seemed endless, and the Bee Gees have produced more than 25 albums and sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.
Of course, Barry's talents extended beyond the group. He penned songs throughout the 1970's and '80s for superstars like Dolly Parton, Barbra Streisand and Kenny Rogers, and later for the likes of Celine Dion and Michael Bolton.
When the Bee Gees 'reunited' in the '70s (after Robin had left and later rejoined the group) they had a hit with "Jive Talkin" in 1975, and became part of the disco phenomenon. In fact, the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack brought the band absolutely enormous popularity thanks to "Stayin' Alive" and "You Should Be Dancing."
The Bee Gees were awarded the lifetime achievement award at the Brit Awards in 1996 and at the American Music Awards the following year. They were also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, and to this day Barry Gibb continues singing and writing as his career has spanned more than five decades. He remains known for his high-pitched falsetto voice, and shares the record with John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney for consecutive Billboard Hot 100 number ones as a writer with six.
On January 27, 2014, Barry Gibb appeared on the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to announce the start of his very first solo tour of the United States. He also performed "You Should Be Dancing" with Fallon's backing band, The Roots.
