Robin co-produced Jimmy Ruffin 's Sunrise released in May , but the songs were started in ; the album contains songs written by the Gibb brothers. He co-produced, and wrote or co-wrote all nine of the album's tracks four of them written with Robin, and the title track with both Robin and Maurice. Barry also appeared on the album's cover with Streisand and duetted with her on two tracks. The album reached No. Two singles from the album fared little better—" He's a Liar ", which reached No.
At first, the Bee Gees lost the case; one juror said that a factor in the jury's decision was the Gibbs' failure to introduce expert testimony rebutting the plaintiff's expert testimony that it was "impossible" for the two songs to have been written independently. However, the verdict was overturned a few months later. Maurice released his second single to date, " Hold Her in Your Hand ", the first one having been released in In , Diana Ross released the album Eaten Alive , written by the Bee Gees, with the title track co-written with Michael Jackson who also performed on the track.
The Bee Gees released the album E. It was their first album in six years, and their first for Warner Bros. The single " You Win Again " went to No. On 10 March , younger brother Andy Gibb died, aged 30, as a result of myocarditis , an inflammation of the heart muscle due to a recent viral infection. The Bee Gees later got together with Eric Clapton to create a group called ' the Bunburys ' to raise money for English charities.
The last song reached No. The album also contained their first US Top 10 hit No. After the album's release, the band embarked on its first world tour in 10 years.
The album became one of their best-selling albums in that country, and was eventually certified Triple Platinum. After the tour, Barry Gibb began to battle a serious back problem, which required surgery.
In addition, he suffered from arthritis which, at one point, was so severe that it was doubtful that he would be able to play guitar for much longer. Also, in the early s, Maurice Gibb finally sought treatment for his alcoholism, which he had battled for many years with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Success still eluded them in the US, however, as the first single released, " Paying the Price of Love ", only managed to reach No. In , they released the album Still Waters , which sold over four million copies and reached No. The CD of the performance sold over 5 million copies. The "One Night Only" name grew out of the band's declaration that, due to Barry's health issues, the Las Vegas show was to be the final live performance of their career.
After the immensely positive audience response to the Vegas concert, Barry decided to continue despite the pain, and the concert expanded into their last full-blown world tour of "One Night Only" concerts.
In , the group's soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever was incorporated into a stage production produced first in the West End and then on Broadway. They wrote three new songs for the adaptation.
Also in , the brothers released " Ellan Vannin " for Manx charities, recorded the previous year. Known as the unofficial national anthem of the Isle of Man, the brothers performed the song during their world tour to reflect their pride in the place of their birth.

The same week that Maurice died, Robin's solo album Magnet was released.

On 20 November it was announced that Robin Gibb, at 61 years old, had been diagnosed with liver cancer , a condition he had become aware of several months earlier. He had become noticeably thinner in previous months and had to cancel several appearances due to severe abdominal pain.
It was his first public appearance for almost five months and, as it turned out, his final one. In September and October , Barry performed his first solo tour "in honour of his brothers and a lifetime of music". It also included the band's entire concert in Melbourne , Australia, available only on video as All for One prior to this release.
No unreleased tracks from the era were included. After a hiatus from performing, Barry Gibb returned to solo and guest singing performances. He occasionally appears with his son, Steve Gibb , who declined to use the Bee Gees brand mainly because of his much different style.
It was the first release of new Bee Gees-related music since the posthumous release of Robin Gibb's 50 St. Also in , Capitol Records signed a new distribution deal with Barry and the estates of his brothers for the Bee Gees catalog, bringing their music back to Universal. In his Playboy magazine interview, John Lennon praised the Bee Gees, "Try to tell the kids in the seventies who were screaming to the Bee Gees that their music was just the Beatles redone.
There is nothing wrong with the Bee Gees. They do a damn good job. There was nothing else going on then". We Rock and Roll guys thought we were dead meat when that movie and the Bee Gees came out. The Bee Gees were brilliant musicians and really nice people. No big egos. Rod, in his brilliance, decided to do a spoof on disco. VERY smart man. There is no such thing as a "dumb" super success in the music business.
Kevin Parker of Tame Impala has said that listening to the Bee Gees after taking mushrooms inspired him to change the sound of the music he was making in his album Currents. The English indie rock band the Cribs was also influenced by the Bee Gees. Cribs member Ryan Jarman said: "It must have had quite a big influence on us — pop melodies is something we always revert to.
I always want to get back to pop melodies and I'm sure that's due to that Bee Gees phase we went through". We loved their songwriting and beautiful harmonies. Recording their classic song, 'Emotion' was a special time for Destiny's Child. Sadly we lost Robin Gibb this week. My heart goes out to his brother Barry and the rest of his family.
Carrie Underwood said, about discovering the Bee Gees during her childhood, "My parents listened to the Bee Gees quite a bit when I was little, so I was definitely exposed to them at an early age. They just had a sound that was all their own, obviously, [it was] never duplicated".
Singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw spoke about the Bee Gees' influence with their own music as well as their songwriting:. Let's talk about the Bee Gees. That's an iconic group. Not just a great band, but a great group of songwriters.
Even long after the Bee Gees' success on the pop charts, they were still writing songs for other people, huge hit songs. Their talent went far beyond their moment of normal pop success. It is a loss to the music industry and a loss of an iconic group.
The beauty of this industry is that we do pay tribute and every artist coming up is a fan of a generation prior to it, so there's a real tradition element to it". In October the Isle of Man Post Office unveiled a set of 6 stamps honouring their native sons' music. In , they were inducted on the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
