Oh, those Brothers Gibb!
7 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This Bee Gees' concert will surely tug at Baby Boomers' hearts--because it brings back fond memories of youth, while simultaneously reaffirming fears of aging. These guys are middle-aged! Barry Gibb, one-time hunk, has thinning hair and wrinkles, for heaven's sake. THEY ALL HAVE THINNING HAIR AND WRINKLES. Glasses are nothing new to them, either.

But none of that matters. Nothing's changed EXCEPT that physical nonsense. Their voices and harmonies are still exquisite; Robin, with that hauntingly beautiful sound, and Barry's voice--as individual, unmistakable, and recognizable as ever as the Bee Gees' "sound".

Time stands still when they sing the old songs, like "Massachusetts" and "I Started a Joke" (Robin's two masterpieces), "Words", "To Love Somebody", and "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart".

The "Helium Years" (with Barry's falsetto) are well represented, too, with "Night Fever", "You Should be Dancing", "Stayin' Alive", and "Grease".

A few of their newest songs (and some of their best) are featured--"Alone", "Still Waters", and Maurice's wonderfully personal, "Closer than Close". Yes, there appears to be no end in sight, thankfully.

Included is a very moving tribute to brother Andy, and other artists are recognized--Frankie Valli, Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta. Celine Dion is the special guest.

Barry is the ultimate performer who works hard to deliver (and does), while Robin is quiet and enigmatic. Maurice seems to be the personality--good-natured and funny--who also deftly handles all the accompanying instruments.

Whatever. These THREE have given us FOUR decades of terrific music and have condensed it into ONE night's performance. And it's a FIVE star effort.
