Bee Gees coverThe Authorized Biography: The Bee Gees

Where do I start? It’s gotta be the shiny pants! Or is it what is inside the pants? Can someone say “rolled up socks”?

I love the Bee Gees and I can sing along with the entire soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. ┬áIf this was the late 70s, my 17 year old self would have happily checked this out. By 1980 or so, I would have been saying “disco sucks” and the Bee Gees’ popularity had probably peaked. (Anyone else remember the Disco Demolition night at Comiskey Park?)

The recent death of Robin and the 2003 death of Maurice should hopefully spur biographers to release a title more fitting to this iconic musical group. Count me in for a read!

  1. Actually the Bee Gees were a lot more than disco and managed to change their styles over the decades to create more hits. Which would’ve been covered in a more modern biography.

  2. I’m such an OCD person, I like to play “spot the inaccurate/incorrect flags” on the back of this book.

  3. Robin and Maurice are gone…. That’s it! I’m officially old. –__–

  4. The caption for that picture…seeing Mum and Dad naked? What?! Please tell me that’s supposed to be a humorous explanation for their facial expressions.

  5. The Bee Gees continued to make awesome music through the 80’s and 90’s. Ooh! Sgt. Pepper! If you have a chance, try to watch the movie.
