இ BEE GEES, I Gotta Get A Message To You

"In 1958 the Gibb family from Manchester, England emigrated to Redcliffe in Queensland, Australia. In their younger days the brothers already began performing where they could raised pocket change. Started off with band names like 'The Rattlesnakes', then 'Wee Johnny Hayes & the Bluecats' until they were introduced to radio DJ Bill Gates by racetrack promoter Bill Goode (who saw them perform at Brisbane's Speedway Circuit). Gates renamed them the 'Bee Gees' after his and Goode's initials - thus the name was not specifically a reference to 'Brothers Gibb' despite popular belief."[excerpt from wikipedia].
