David N. Meyer -- The Bee Gees: The Biography -- Gables
Sep 11 2013 8:00 pm
The first narrative biography of the Bee Gees, the phenomenally
popular vocal group that has sold more than 200 million records
worldwide—sales in the company of the Beatles and Michael Jackson. The
Bee Gees is the epic family saga of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice
Gibb, and it’s riddled with astonishing highs—especially as they became
the definitive band of the disco era, fueled by Saturday Night Fever and
crashing lows, including the tragic drug-fueled downfall of youngest
brother, Andy. In recent years, a whole new generation of fans has
rediscovered the undeniable grooves and harmonies that made the Bee Gees
and songs like Stayin’ Alive, How Deep is Your Love, To Love Somebody,
and I Started a Joke timeless.
