The Bee Gees were a musical group founded in 1958. They consisted of brothers Maurice, Barry, and Robin Gibb. The trio was successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a pop act in the late 1960s through the early 1970s and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s. The Bee Gees have sold in excess of 200 million records worldwide. Their most popular composition is “How Deep Is Your Love”, with 400 versions by other artists. In all, the Gibbs placed 13 singles onto the Hot 100 in 1978, with 12 making the Top 40. The Gibbs brothers are fellows of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA).
