This was bound to be a somewhat bittersweet birthday for Barry Gibb, the only surviving brother in a family that bred one of the most successful sibling singing groups of all time. Born September 1 1946, he ranks as one of the most successful songwriters in music history, second only to Paul McCartney. In fact, he also shares the record with Lennon and McCartney for the most consecutive number one singles in Billboard's Hot One Hundred. 

The songs he and his brothers penned for themselves and an array of other artists -- Barbara Streisand, Kenny Rogers, Dionne Warwick, and Dolly Parton included -- rank among the greatest pop melodies ever written. They continue to resonate both on radio and in the hearts of faithful fans.
