Barry Gibb
Barry Gibb has urged Justin Bieber to curb his childish antics and turn his life around before he becomes another music tragedy, like the Bee Gees legend's younger brother, Andy.

Gibb reveals he is concerned for the teenager's wellbeing after a series of headline-grabbing behavior, culminating in his DUI arrest in Miami, last week and Wednesday's charge of assault relating to a bust-up with a limousine driver in his native Canada in December.

The 19 year old's troubles are all the more alarming for Gibb because his bad behavior reminds of the way his singer brother's life was cut short ...

March 11th, 2012 3:31pm EDT
Robin Gibb
Bee Gees star Robin Gibb believes his cancer battle and the loss of his brothers are the heavy prices he has to pay for fame and fortune.

The star, who has been battling colon cancer for 18 months, was first hit with tragedy in 1980 when his younger brother Andy died. Gibb's twin Maurice also passed away in 2003 due to complications from a twisted intestine, a condition he also suffers from.

'American Idol' Grand Finale Mega-Diary 2010

The only question is whether or not this is the last time the “American Idol” finale warrants such treatment. The mega-diary is reserved for TV events like The Oscars and The Emmys (and by all rights The Super Bowl if lack of sobriety didn’t prevent cataloging that evening), but I’m not sure how much longer “Idol” is going to fit.

With Simon’s departure and dwindling ratings, this night next year could be on a part with the season finale of “Survivor” or ...

November 1st, 2006 3:07pm EST
The Bee Gees
The Bee Gees' phenomenal success in the 1970s often obscures the fact that by the time the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack redefined R&B dance music, the trio already had more than ten albums and a string of worldwide hits under their belts. The November 7 release of The Studio Albums 1967-1968 - the initial installment of the first-ever catalog upgrade for the group - shows that The Brothers Gibb possessed the musical Midas touch from the very beginning.
