If one was living during the daft days of the 1970s, one would, I suppose, remember the movie S.W.A.L.K. (Sealed with a loving kiss) and whose songs were all from the Bee Gees.

The movie had young stars like Mark Lester and Jack Wilde together with ‘new find’, Tracy Hyde.

What always caught my attention about Bee Gees was that they could re-invent themselves from the 1960s to 1970s kind of songs like Massachusetts and Melody Fair to the 1980s Saturday Night Fever kind of songs.

The brothers, especially elder brother, Barry Gibb, were truly inspirational.

After the sad death of younger twin Maurice from what was thought a routine operation in 2003, we now hear of elder twin Robin having the ‘C’.

Sad but I wish to remember them in the songs that they wrote for themselves and others like Barbara Streisand.

Below is a song, ‘New York Mining Disaster 1941’ performed by all three (in 1997) that was subsequently often played after the equally tragic 9/11 incident in New York in 2001.
