The Ultimate Biography of the Bee Gees - Tales of The Brothers Gibb, Bilyeu, Cook & Hughes
16 The Ultimate Biography of the Bee Gees - Tales of The Brothers Gibb
Bilyeu, Cook & Hughes Omnibus Press 2000 London 0711979170 / 9780711979178 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
688 pages, b/w photos. Black boards. Illustrated unclipped jacket, minor edge-wear, small tears to rear top, now protected in clear, acid free plastic. Pages are clean, straight & unmarked. Strong, intact binding. "The Bee Gees' 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 a musical partnership that has already lasted four times as long as The Beatles. Youthful delinquency, disastrous marriages, bitter lawsuits, drug and alcohol 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 Ges roller coaster seemed derailed for good, they recovered and went on to even greater triumphs." - 709 005736
