4. 4. Bee Gees
'The BGs' was the name drawn from some common initials - brother Barry Gibb, radio DJ Bill Gates and promoter Bill Goode. In the early days, Goode hired the boys to sing on the back of his truck and people would throw money at them. People more commonly believe that the 'Bee Gees' stands for Brothers Gibb.
