English born Trevor Gordon Grunnill migrated to Australia as a kid and then moved back to the UK in the 60s to form The Marbles with Graham, who would later go onto solo success with the Bee Gee’s written ‘Warm Ride’ and a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘It’s All Over Now Baby Blue’.

Trevor Gordon was a close friend of the Bee Gees. Barry Gibb wrote their one and only hit song ‘Only One Woman’, as well as ‘The Walls Fell Down’.

‘Only One Woman’ was a Top 3 hit in the UK in 1968. A lesser-know song ‘The Walls Fell Down’ reached no. 28 in the UK).

Gordon met the Gibbs growing up in Brisbane in 1964. He recorded other Barry Gibb songs before forming The Marbles.

Barry got them a meeting with Robert Stigwood who signed them to his label.

The Marbles only ever released one album ‘The Marbles’ (1970) and four singles.
