The Bee Gees have had top 10 hit songs in each of the five decades their career has spanned. The peak of their career was during the late 1970s, and the Bee Gees saturation at this time was such, that certain DJs began to resent them, and called for Bee Gee-free weekends - on one occasion even burning their records at a football event during half-time.
Persecution aside, the Bee Gees saw continued success in Europe, during the 1980s, and during the 1990s, the rest of the world finally followed, by recognising the contribution the Brothers Gibb have made, to not only Disco (a very short part of their career), but many styles of music over the decades. They helped launch the careers of dozens of artists, including Dionne Warwick. Other artists, such as Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, and Kenny Rogers, saw their audiences expand ten-fold backed by the songwriting skills of the brothers, and thus crossing them over into the pop charts.
Amoung the many awards the Bee Gees received during the late 1990s, was being inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame, but their proudest moment came, when they were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Sadly in January 2003, Maurice Gibb passed away. Barry and Robin, the later of which is Maurice' fraternal twin, are continuing with their current side-projects, and when both brothers work together in the future, it may or may not be as the Bee Gees, but will always be as brothers - something no one can take away from them.
