The Bee Gees were a pop music band formed by three brothers (Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb) in 1958. The group was particularly successful in the late 1970s disco era. The Gibb brothers also starred in the musical comedy Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which was released in 1978. Beatles songs are used as dialogue to tell the story of a band doing battle with the music industry. The soundtrack contains new versions of the songs from the 1967 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the 1969 album Abbey Road. In the film, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is a small town’s beloved marching band. After the bandleader’s death, the band is re-formed by his grandson (played by Peter Frampton) and his best friends (played by the Bee Gees). Initially, the film received negative reviews, but it has since become a cult classic.
