More information

Born to Barbara and Hugh Gibb in the Isle of Man, Gibb was the fraternal twin of Maurice Gibb, and the older of the two by 35 minutes. The third-born of five children, Gibb has one older sister, Lesley (born 1945), and three brothers: Barry (born 1946), fraternal twin Maurice (1949–2003), and Andy (1958–1988).

Gibb was the subject of an edition of the BBC genealogy documentary series Who Do You Think You Are? first broadcast on 21 September 2011. The programme revealed that Gibb's paternal great-grandfather was born into poverty in Paisley and went on to become a decorated soldier and his paternal great-grandmother was a midwife.


Gibb's mother Barbara was born in Worsley, Salford, and in 1953 the family returned to Manchester, England. The family lived on Keppel Road, Chorlton-cum-Hardy and it was here that the young Gibb brothers sang together and performed in local theatres. In late 1958, the family moved to Brisbane, Australia. The family travelled to Australia on the same ship as Australian musician Red Symons. The brothers' music careers began in Australia and flourished when they returned to England in 1967.
