Bee Gee's Robin Gibb at The World Music Awards
MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - We photographed Robin Gibb on the red carpet at the 2010 World Music Awards as he arrived to be an award presenter for the show. Robin Gibb later handed the great singer Andrea Bocelli from Italy with his 2010 World Music Award for World's Best Classical Artist. Prior to awarding Bocelli with his award, Robin Gibb, who co-founded the extremely successful band the Bee Gees along with his brothers Barry Gibb and Maurice Gibb, said that their father (Hugh Gibb) had always taught them to not be afraid to express themselves in music. It was only fitting therefore that it was Robin Gibb, who himself is an incredible singer, would be the one to present Andrea Bocelli with his award.
The brothers Gibb, who were born in the Isle Of Man, spent their early childhood in Manchester in the United Kingdom, where they began singing together in harmony and performing in public. The Gibb family emigrated to Queensland, Australia in 1958 and by the early 1960's they were performing as the Bee Gees.
Together, the brothers Gibb created many Bee Gee hit records, with number one singles like "Tragedy" and "Love You Inside Out" and with a distinctive vocal sound that Robin Gibb and his brothers Maurice and Barry developed. In the 1970's, the Bee Gees were catapulted to success with the movie "Saturday Night Fever", writing and recording the album's tracks in a short space of time with all of the music coming together brilliantly with the very successful hit singles "How Deep Is Your Love", "Night Fever", and "Stayin Alive".
