Often of an evening I watch old episodes of Top Of The Pops on the iPlayer and tonight I watched a 1987 episode when “You Win Again” was number one. And I do love that song, and I love loads of Bee Gees tunes. But boy, do they lack charisma or what? They looked like three total spods. I’ve never known them to say anything funny or witty, but their genuine talent is an obvious “piss off ganglesprocket, who cares what you think” retort which cannot be denied.
But this made me think. Are there any other charisma vacuums that I am forgetting about? Is there anyone else with Bee Gee levels of success (I accept producer or performer, provided they have done both in their time) which I am forgetting?
Does anyone have less charisma and more success than the Bee Gees?
