âLike so many people, I’ve loved Bee Gees music my whole life,â Marshall said in a statement. “But discovering their weird creative instincts and the treasure of music, their humor and their loyalty has been a great two-year journey.”
âThis is the story of how three brothers with primordial musical gifts created music that touched the collective subconscious on five continents for five consecutive decades,â added Sinclair. âIt’s brotherhood and family, creativity, fun, joy and tragedy. We all feel very privileged to be involved.
