The episode: “Track of the Moon Beast,” ep. 1007
The riff: Noted by Tom as the camera slowly pans up (after hovering on the guitar for far too long) to reveal a kind of effeminate-looking singer with long, strawberry blond hair.
The explanation: The guy in the film actually looks remarkably like Robin Gibb, who was one of three Gibb brothers who formed 1970s disco powerhouse the Bee Gees. He was mostly a keyboard player, and was noted in the 1970s for his long and flowing hair. He passed away in May of 2012 after a long battle with cancer.
Novelty factor: I know who the Bee Gees are of course, and some of their music, but I honestly didn’t know Gibb’s name.
