    Gibb, Barry Alan Crompton (1st September 1946-Present)

    He is a singer-songwriter who was born in Douglas, Isle of Man, Great Britain.  His family moved to Manchester while he was still young and then in 1958 they emigrated to Australia.   Along with his brothers, Robin and Maurice , he started singing and songwriting from a young age and they became the Bee Gees in 1958.    He broke Lennon & McCartney's record by being the only songwriter to have 4 straight No.1s in 1978.  His songs have been recorded by well over 2,500 other artists and he has written and produced albums for artists including Andy Gibb (his brother), Barbra Streisand, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross and Dionne Warwick.  He received an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Music from the University of Manchester in 2004 and was awarded a CBE by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace, in 2005. In January 2006 he bought the former home of Johhny and June Cash in Tennessee.   His son, Steve, is currently a guitarist for Crowbar.
