Everyone has their favourite era of the Bee Gees’ career, but so much is still unclear about this celebrated but often misunderstood band. This book will provide the perfect route in, pulling together every fascinating strand to tell the story of these pioneering, melancholic masters of pop. Uniquely, the Bee Gees’ tale spans the entire modern pop era – they are the only group to have scored British top-ten singles in the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s – and includes world-conquering disco successes like ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and ‘More Than a Woman’, both from the soundtrack of hit film Saturday Night Fever. But the Bee Gees’ extraordinary career was one of highs and lows. From a vicious but temporary split in 1969 to several unreleased albums, disastrous TV and film appearances, and a demoralising cabaret season, the group weren’t always revelling in the glow of million-selling albums, private jets and UNICEF concerts. Yet, even in the Gibbs’ darkest times, their music was rarely out of the charts, as sung by the likes of Al Green, Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton and Diana Ross. Award winning author Bob Stanley captures the human story at the heart of the Bee Gees in this lyrical and stylish read.
