Robin Gibb: 1979
It was teaming up with producer Arif Mardin - who had worked with Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield, to name a few - that truly changed the fortunes of the Bee Gees. It led to Jive Talkin', which featured on their second Mardin-produced release, the Main Course album.
The group continued with the dance groove as manager Robert Stigwood brought them on board for Saturday Night Fever, a film he was producing. The Bee Gees wrote songs for the soundtrack, and the rest is pop history.
Thanks to the likes of Staying Alive, Tragedy, How Deep Is Your Love, Too Much Heaven etc. they dominated the charts all over the world in the late 1970s, selling millions of records and had accolades piled on them, such as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
