It’s not always easy to have a famous father. Stephen Gibb is the eldest son of Bee Gee Barry Gibb. Of course, he spent a lifetime exposed to his father’s musical career and studio work in the world-famous Middle Ear Studio – now sadly no more.
He was only five years old when the Bee Gees were at the peak of their career with “Saturday Night Fever”. Stephen started piano lessons at the age of three, but he was 13 when he heard Van Halen for the first time. From then on, it had to be the guitar.
From bassist with Black Label Society to guitarist with Crowbar, playing with 58 (a project with Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe and producer Dave Darling) and Kingdom of Sorrow, Stephen has played with the cream of the rock scene and the hottest insiders in metal.
He also writes songs with his father and tours with him, and has even written for Barbra Streisand and Ricky Skaggs.
He always knew he would become a professional musician, recalling in an interview, “I remember so much, all the fun they had. I never wanted to do anything else. I’ve been around music all my life and there’s no better feeling.”
