June 7, 1976: The article that inspired "Saturday Night Fever"

“Saturday Night Fever” was one of the most popular movies ever.   It started out as a holiday “low budget film” but the theaters were sold out quickly.

The soundtrack sold over 30 million copies and gave The Bee Gees total command of the pop charts.   The LP was # 1 for months.  3 songs from the soundtrack were # 1, including “Night Fever” that sat at the top for 8 weeks.

My guess is that few music or disco fans know about Nik Cohn.  Nevertheless, his article inspired the story that made Travolta and The Bee Gees into household names.   

Here is a link to the article.   Wonder if Mr Cohn had any idea of what would happen next?
