Robin Gibb has spent about six decades of his career in pursuing solo projects. But success and fortune came when along with his brothers Maurice and Barry, when Robin Gee formed the Bee Gees band. The Bee Gee is an abbreviated form of Brothers Gibb consisting of Barry Gibb the eldest one and twins Maurice and Robin Gibb. The success of Robin Gibb reached its peak when the Bee Gee group composed “Saturday Night Fever” album that had also included the songs performed by other performers.
