Today in Music History, March 4

On this date, 35 years ago today, Andy Gibb reached number one on the U.S. Singles charts with “Love Is Thicker Than Water.”  A demonstration of the Gibb brothers’ U.S. chart domination in 1978, this song replaced the song by Andy’s brothers, the Bee Gees, with their #1 single “Stayin’ Alive“, when it reached #1 on the Hot 100 on March 4. This song was replaced at number one by the Bee Gees’ own “Night Fever“. This was then replaced by Yvonne Elliman‘s “If I Can’t Have You“. Since Barry Gibb had a hand in writing all four of these songs, he became the only person in history to write four consecutive US Number One singles; this feat has not been matched to this day.

Do you know what famous rock guitarist worked on that song?
