He doesn't look well at all in this photo. Wish him the best.

I don't think he's looked well for some time. I wish him and his family well, too.

Best wishes for his recovery.

The band notched up record sales of more than 200 million during a career which has spanned seven decades.

Seven decades is pretty amazing, considering they've only been at it since around 1958...

This is sad news.

The Bee Gees played a big part in making the end of 1970s simply a brilliant time for music.

All the Saturday Night Fever tracks are classics.

I had to think about thay briefly, but true. I guess the article must make some posters OLD! (As opposed to those of us like me that were possibly concieved to Saturday Night Fever. Heh, I bet even Travolta would put his hip replacement out trying those moves today.

Sad, getting old and ill. Hope he makes it.

Fifties, Sixties, Seventies, Eighties, Nineties, Thousands, erm....Tens?

Spanned 7 decades. I had to think about it too, the writer was just wanting people to feel really old I think :)

7 decades =???? 2012-1958=???? When does 70 = 54 ??

I think the mod is counting the fifties (3 years) as one decade, then the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s as a decade each, then the 10s (2 years) as another decade. So it (just) spans 7 decades. Like someone born in 1899 and dying in 2001 would have lived 102 years, spanning three centuries.

Either way, the BeeGees were awesome.

The fifties to the 20 tens, makes seven decades my friend. It works okay if you go, by tens alone don't you know. Its a system for a fool, witless wonders or a mule. For our musical eras, and historical walks, do not come in metered blocks!

Three brothers made up this band, Barry, Robin, Maurice and, That's the order old to young, starting from the most handsome! Maurice is already dead, now Robin is confined to bed! Barry is just fine today, he got the best DNA?
