The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers - Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb - that became one of the most successful musical acts of all time. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in England and moved to Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. The group's name is derived from the initials "B.G.", primarily standing for "The Brothers Gibb." The Bee Gees added the second "E" to the "Bee" to be next to The Beatles in music stores.
