Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Anyone else notice something peculiar about The Bee Gees photo used to complement Terry David Mulligan’s Province blurb for the March 2, 1968 CKLG Boss 30?

The promo photo features none of the brothers Gibb in the centre. Looking at it, you might well think the good looking dude smiling in the front was the leader of the band. His name is Vince Melouney. For several years he was an on-again off-again lead guitarist/extra harmonist for The Bee Gees.

Melouney would leave the band late that year. He wrote and sang lead on one song—Such A Shame—for the British pressing of Idea. It was dropped in favour of I’ve Gotta Get A Message To You on the album’s American release. Maybe the Melouney-centred photo was snapped in case Such A Shame dropped as a British 45. If not, guess the Gibbs were in an egalitarian frame of mind to let someone else be displayed so prominently in a band photo.

Left to right, the photo shows Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Vince Melouney, Maurice Gibb (when he still had a good head of hair) and Colin Petersen. Drummer Petersen was still around a year later when Best Of The Bee Gees came out. I suspect both he and Melouney got a share of artist royalties for their brief but pivotal contributions to The Bee Gees,
