Bee Gees Print by James Chapman
The Bee Gees, formed in 1958, consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. As children, the Brothers Gibb lived in Chorlton-cum-Hardy between 1955 and 1958 and became involved in the skiffle craze, forming their first band, the Rattlesnakes, which evolved into the Bee Gees in 1958 when they emigrated to Australia.
This image depicts the band, in their Saturday Night Fever get up, in Exchange Square with the iconic Sinclairs Oyster Bar featured in the background.
Artist James Chapman explains: "Although they only lived in Manchester for a brief period in the 1950s, it was here that the Gibb brothers formed The Rattlesnakes, the band that would later evolve to be the Bee Gees. They always struck me as a fun-loving bunch, so here they are having a hoot."
