EVEN The Bee Gees think they are like them – and you can't get a better endorsement than that.
After seeing tribute group Bee Gees Magic perform, Maurice Gibb's reaction was "absolutely brilliant" and Barry Gibb said, "Wow! Fantastic."
The real Bee Gees appeared with Bee Gees Magic at an event organised by Heart Radio and many fans were lost for words at how good a tribute it was.
Almost every supergroup today breeds a host of lookalike and soundalike bands.
There are a number of sets of The Beatles, Stones and Abba doing the rounds, and even modern groups still in the charts seem to spark tributes.

It's a great way to get to see your heroes if you have little or no chance of ever seeing them perform, and if you're a dedicated fan, it provides an excellent evening's entertainment of your band's best songs . . . and if you just half-close your eyes . . . it could be them.
