Overview

The definitive biography, now updated to include the tragic death of Maurice Gibb in February 2003.

The Bee Gee's journey from Fifties child act to musical institution is one of pop's most turbulent legends.

Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb somehow managed to survive changing musical fashions and bitter personal feuds to create musical partnership that has already lasted four times as long as The Beatles.

Described by the authors as their objective tribute, this unflinching biography chronicles everything - the good, the bad... and the bushed-up.

Youthful delinquency, disastrous marriages, bitter lawsuits, gay sex scandals, serious drug problems and the death of younger brother Andy have sometimes made the personal lives of the Brothers Gibb look as bleak as the low spots of a career that once reduced them to playing the Batley Variety Club.

Yet every time the Bee Gees roller coaster seemed derailed for good, they recorded and went on to even greater triumphs.
Today they are among pop music's all-time greats, legendary performers, producers and songwriters. But the true story of their success and the high price they paid for it has never been fully revealed... until now.
