Publishers Description: The long overdue, definitive narrative biography of one of Australias legendary bands, The Bee Gees, by the acclaimed award-winning author of Twenty Thousand The Ballad of Gram Parsons and his Cosmic American Music. The Bee Gees have outsold The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and The Kinks, en route to selling more than 225 million records worldwide over their forty-year career. Their numbers are eclipsed only by The Beatles and Michael Jackson. 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 everyones head; one Top 5 single after another, in America, Australia and the UK. Songs that 1941 New York Mining Disaster, To Love Somebody, Massachusetts, Holiday, World, Words, I Gotta Get a Message To You, I Started a Joke, Lonely Days...In 1969 they played 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 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 wth Barrys ambition, he could not succeed
