London, July 4 (IANS) The last remaining Bee Gees member Barry Gibb has shared his secret to “Stayin alive” and it comes down to getting plenty of sleep.
“I don’t believe in getting up early in the morning. My secret is: don’t get out of bed until you feel like getting out of bed. Early mornings are not for me,” said the 70-year-old pop star, reports mirror.co.uk.
“It’s usually around 10 or 11. That’s reasonable. I crawl out of bed about 10 and I’m usually sharp by 2 p.m. But I’m always asleep by midnight.”
Despite appearing in great health when he performed at Glastonbury festival last month, the singer insists he does not follow strict healthy eating plans.
“I don’t try to eat healthily – I’ll eat anything if I’m hungry,” he said, speaking at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef awards.
“There’s no rules. I’ve got a great family. If you build a family and you nurture each other that keeps you young,” he said.
The father-of-five is the last remaining member of the Bee Gees, which he formed with his brothers Robin and Maurice in the 1960s. They gave hit songs like “Stayin’ alive”, “How deep is your love” and “Tragedy”.
Maurice passed away in 2003 at the age of 53, following complications with a twisted intestine.
Robin, Maurice’s twin, died in 2012 at the age of 62 after battling cancer for several years. The family lost another brother, Andy, who had battled drug addiction, in 1988.
