Between 1967 and 1972 the Bee Gees sold twenty five million records. And during those five years The Bee Gees wrote and sang some of the most memorable, iconic songs of their era; songs that were everywhere, in the air, on the radio and in everyone's head; one Top 5 single after another, in America, Australia and the UK. Songs that included: '1941 New York Mining Disaster', 'To Love Somebody', 'Massachusetts', 'Holiday', 'World', 'Words', 'I Gotta Get a Message To You', 'I Started a Joke', and 'Lonely Days'.
In 1969 they played at the Royal Albert Hall in the UK with a 70 piece orchestra and a 100 piece marching band. Standing room only, The Bee Gees were the first band to play and sell out 100,000 seat sports arenas. In 1971 the brothers wrote and sang one of the most beautiful and enduring pop songs of all time: 'How Do You Mend a Broken Heart?' and in 1972 'Run To Me' became the final #1 of the first Bee Gees era. Pop charts are fickle; pop audiences more fickle still. Bands have always come and gone, bands have always been forgotten, but no band has ever risen as high as The Bee Gees did in 1972 and then fallen as low as The Bee Gees had by 1974.
The Bee Gees' saga is the epic story of three men, three brothers, in a unique musical partnership. Unlike, say, The Jacksons, The Bee Gees always needed one another. Each brought a unique gift to the mix, and the others knew it. From that need grew the reality of having to put up with each other for forty years. Even with Barry's ambition, he could not succeed without his brothers. Each brother's personality warrants its story told, and all three are caught in this compelling family dynamic. And as weird, human, tragic and compelling as The Bee Gees are as individual characters, the tensions among them provide the core of their amazing drama. David Meyer's highly anticipated biography chronicles the life and career of one of the best known, most enduring, most recognisable, and singular bands of the last fifty years. Their story is the story of pop music over the last forty years, of music that was neither rock nor soul nor country, but an individual sound that fit no genre and that no other artist could emulate.
