    I was born in the late 50s. I was a child of the sixties and a teenager in the 70s. I like I was brought up in the era of rock and roll. Then something happened to the music in the late 70s. There were plenty of bands still doing rock and roll but that damn disco music came along. I don’t really like rap either. Thank goodness for the rock and roll bands like Tom Petty and The Hearbreakers.

    The Bee Gees were able to morph into disco quite easily.

    I remember the Bee Gees better in their "I started a Joke" Era.(1967 - 1973)
    I also remember them like this:

    @Shrike this is NOT the F you thread. I have always referred to him as John Revolting though.

    It could be, if it wasn't for Mick. Just another vid that shows that he's one of the absolute best frontmen in the business.

    In a forum called FUCK combustion, the F is pretty much a free word anywhere. Though I will admit that I've used John Revolting over the years, also. :nod:

    The FU thread is more for cathartic release...I was just making a statement of fact...:cool::tup:

    Back then I felt like I was part of the Disco Sucks movement, but this song got under my skin. It sounded like disco, but I could not get it out of my head. Same with The Fez by Steely Dan.

    Fuck freely, people! :evil:

    Not Disco....
    I never knew they sang "Disco".
    I must have missed that era.
    I missed out on Travolta doing Disco too.
    I missed it all.
    I was otherwise occupied, and disconnected from media through it all!

    I went out on Lady's Night every week & disco'd. :p Except for rap, punk & heavy metal, I like all other genres of musics from the 1940s till now. My fav though is the entire '60s & '80s.

    @Vitolo , you should feel fortunate having missed the Disco plague. I regret to inform you of more victims besides the BeeGees. Fellow mourners, let us have of moment of silence, literally, with the volume down, as we recall the Dead's Shakedown Street and Blondie's Heart of Glass. 1978 was a year of contagion.

    But for some twisted reason, I loved the VW bus blaring disco classics in lot after Dead shows many years later. Tripping disco balls

    @Summer - us nerds couldn't dance and couldn't pick up babes like you, so we latched onto punk and new wave back then, our own little club

    Even Rod. Saw it live, the dude turned and wiggled his butt obscenely at us for the whole song.

    :rofl:

    No, seriously, CCC, don't disparage it. There are those of us who remember good & meaningful times with that music playing in the background.

    So basically, you just jumped up & down to the music. :p Sad, very sad.

    You have to admit, his heavily raspy voice is completely seductive. I have his Song Book Collection -- all 4 or 5 CDs. His voice crosses many genres.

    I love storytelling songs like Maggie May & American Pie. The 8 min version of AP blows me away. Did you guys ever google American Pie's meaning? It's a trip, everyone trying to figure out what it means in its entirety. Some parts Dan McClean revealed & the rest is conjecture.

    My high school GF said all we could do then was lurch and play air-guitar.

    Yes, what a classic timeless voice. :)

    His (RS) voice which can sing so many genres is like all the different genres of jazz, which I love. 1930's through contemporary.

    Anyway, Paul McCartney was just interviewed on 60 minutes, so I'll hit you with this; he had such a sweet voice & wrote some beautiful music:

    My ex husband was a beegees fan. Our lp collections were totally different and I don't even remember who he listened to. Beegees like music is all I remember. Should have been a warning sign.
