What immediately strikes the viewer when watching the documentary The Bee Gees: How Do You Mend a Broken Heart, is that it’s a story of survival. Eldest Barry Gibb is now the only survivor of the family.
Gibb is also keen for the music to survive – to stay alive, as it were. Hence this documentary.
While they were major pop stars and the figurehead for a maligned genre, The Bee Gees at their core were a song writer family.
The catalogue of compositions is weighty and deserved to live long in our ears.
