The world is filled with many famous trios but the trios listed below were at the top of their game. Capturing the entertainment and music world, these trios had staying power. People in today's society are as enthralled with these trios as they were "back in the day."
- If you love music from the 70s and 80s (those Golden Oldies), the BeeGees were leaders of the pack in famous trios in their day. Originally made up of four brothers, Barry, Robin, Maurice, and Andy, after Andy decided to pursue a music career of his own, the three famous brothers went onto make such hits as "Saturday Night Fever" and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart." Just about everything the BeeGees touched in the late 70s and 80s went gold. Sadly, Maurice died at age 53 of a sudden heart attack and Barry and Robin are currently pursuing separate careers.
- In the music world, one of the most famous trios has got to be Peter, Paul, and Mary. With Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey, and Mary Travers working together, they spearheaded the early civil rights and anti-war movements in the 1970s with such songs as "Blowing in the Wind", "Abraham, Martin and John" (another famous trio). Sadly, Mary Travers died in September 2009 after battling leukemia so this famous trio is no longer around to celebrate their continued success with this generation of folk song lovers.
- Moving closer to modern time, on of the most famous trios in todays world is the Jonas Brothers. As handsome as they are talented in the singing department, Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas have moved to the top of the charts with their hits such as "S.O.S", "Goodnight & Goodbye", "Just Friends" and "Take a breath." This talented trio also writes most of their own music and lyrics. Truly a set of sons that Mr. and Mrs. Jonas must be proud of.
