The Bee Gees star performed the 'Legends Slot' at Glastonbury festival last weekend.

Barry Gibb has admitted that the key to still having the energy to perform at 70-years-old is getting as much sleep as possible.

The Bee Gees legend confessed that he prefers a lie-in in the morning, rather than getting up at the crack of dawn. 

"I sleep as long as possible. I don't believe in getting up early in the morning," the star said. 

We hear you!

Barry now performs solo since his brothers Maurice and Robin died in 2003 and 2012 respectively, and he performed the 'Legends Slot' at Glastonbury festival last weekend.

"I don't like being on stage on my own. I miss my brothers. I get nerves being on stage on my own because it is so new to me," the singer recently admitted. 

"We would all lean on each other. I'd lean on Maurice and Robin and they would lean on me and somehow we'd get through every show."

Despite his nerves, Barry's slot went down an absolute storm at Glasto and brought The Bee Gees' music to a whole new generation!
