I was channel surfing the other day and watched a documentary about the Bee Gees on the History (!) Channel.
They were closely associated with the disco era because of the huge success of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. However, in reality they were not disco artists.
I’m always fascinated by what inspires creative people. I was floored when I found out the inspiration for the opening bars of “Jive Talkin'” was a car going over a bridge.
The Bee Gees were recording in Miami and everyday would cross the Julia Tuttle Causeway. This proves once again that inspiration can come from anywhere or anyone.
