Brian Wilson

The Beach Boys

We asked him (Brian Wilson) where he ranked the group (Bee Gees) in his personal top ten.

Very softly but definitively , he said: "Number One".
we said: Ahead of The Beatles ?
he said: "Yes".
we said: Ahead of The Beach Boys ?
again he said: "Yes".

Brian May

Queen

- "You Win Again" was truly one of the greatest songs of the 80s". To me it's a modern masterpiece of production - devastating simplicity executed with devastating subtlety.

- Of course I was, and am huge fan of the Bee Gees creations in music.  Undoubtedly at the pinnacle of song-writing considered over the last 30 years, is it?!. My fondest recollections are not of the SNF days, which were really a re-birth in the Bee Gees popularity, but the early ground-breaking songs... I remember singing these (songs) with my pal Tim Staffell and FREDDIE in the REAL old days!!!...

Paul McCartney

The Beatles

It was the "Mining Disaster" song that [Robert Stigwood, Manager of the Bee Gees] played me.
I said ( PM ): " Sign them, they're great !. And they went on to be even greater.

McCartney said in reference to Bee Gees' "Too Much Heaven"
"That's one of the records when I bring it home, it's very popular. It's one of those 'PUT IT ON AGAIN, PUT IT ON AGAIN' things, so that's a good sign."

Pet Shop Boys

" The Bee Gees were under-appreciated compared with some of their contemporaries, the ubiquity of their disco-era songs seeming to be more of an issue than the beauty and sexiness of their music. The Bee Gees have always been a big inspiration for us. "

Liam Gallagher & Andy Bell

Oasis/Beady Eye

Andy Bell - " Yeah! I was like, “The Bee Gees?!” But it’s great. That’s the one with ‘Red Chair, Fade Away’ on it. 'Every Christian Lion-Hearted Man Will Show You' is the one with the monks chanting on it and most people who are into this album will tell you that that’s the tune. They were doing a lot of psychedelic pop before The Beatles were doing it and that’s the genius about it. "
