Publishers Weekly, 6/3/13 "[An] exhaustive biography...The author is a fan, but he doesn't hesitate to be critical" Examiner.com, 7/16/13 "Meyer, a film aficionado and Gram Parsons biographer, makes a compelling case for one of the world's best-selling (and most understood) bands...The author delves into exquisite detail...The Bee Gees: The Biography is a fascinating, historically significant retrospective of one of popular music's most enduring--yet maligned--acts." Sunday Daily Mail (UK), 7/21/13 "By concentrating on the music, it might help give the Bee Gees the recognition as songwriters they so justly deserve." Houston Press, 7/30/13 "Does what Meyer intended it to: restore some respect and luster to a family band whose music is incredibly ingrained in a lot of people's everyday listening, embodied with craftsmanship, and far more than just a 'disco group.'" Record Collector, 9/1/13 "[An] engrossing account of the life and times of the brothers Gibb... It's an emotive read, celebrating some truly enduring music (a quarter of a billion sales can't lie), while pondering where the band fit into a bigger showbiz picture."
