Bring the puns: "Knight Fever", "Knights on Broadway", "Lonely Days, Lonely Knights" … Barry Gibb, 71, the frontman of Bee Gees and possibly the most famous falsetto singer in the world, was knighted Buckingham Palace on Tuesday
Gibb is the last surviving member of the sibling group he founded in 1958 with twin brothers Maurice and Robin. Although the brothers were often considered Australians, they were all born near Manchester and emigrated with their parents in 1
After switching to a more R & B-oriented sound with singles like "Jive Talkin", the group became the best-selling album for a long time, thanks to their blockbuster soundtrack to the 1977 film "Saturday Night Fever" In all times, the name of the game was the disco – figureheads – and finally the whipping boys. The group continued to tour and record, write and produce for other artists. Maurice died in 2003 and Robin in 2012.
Gibb remembered his brothers after he was knighted by Prince Charles. "If my brothers were not, I would not be here," said Gibb in the picture after the ceremony with his wife, Linda, and children Michael (right), Alexandra, and Ashley (left).
Gibb said the honor was "a bit surreal," though he added, "It's a high honor your culture can give you, and I'm so proud of it."
