Bee Gees FAQ

Below you will find the most frequently asked Bee Gees questions.

From their Beatles-ish beginning, to their disco apotheosis, to their un-pin-downable beyond, questions abound in the Bee Gees lyrical corpus. Bee Gees questions are, and yet somehow are not, rhetorical. Maybe they are not questions at all. In German, one sometimes finds a powerful backronym for « FAQ »: « Fragen, Antworten, Quintessenzen »: quintessence is the alchemical fifth essence, or the ether itself.

Below you will find the Bee Gees Summa Theologica, posed to an empty, unfeeling universe.
