Contemporary popular music is home to countless artists who have built their history over the years and Bee Gees has a special place there.

The music industry owes Bee gees more than you could imagine. The influence, rhythms, lyricism and other aspects on which many of the popular hits of the charts are composed today, from pop to rock and many great stars will appear this documentary to make it clear.
In the short preview released recently, we see various music artists such as Noel Gallagher from Oasis, Chris Martin from Coldplay, Justin Timberlake and Nick Jonas make statements about the relevance that the trio of British origin has had not only throughout their careers, but in the development of pop music.
During another brief sequence of the preview, mention is made of the moment when they decided to go to Miami to “Adopt a new attitude and a new sound”, aspects that would eventually lead to his participation in the soundtrack of the film Saturday night fever (1977) and the recording of the iconic song “Stayin ‘Alive”.
Frank Marshall, known for his work in the production of Seabiscuit Y The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, was the filmmaker in charge of directing How Can You Mend a Broken Heart which will arrive on December 12 to HBO Max. “Like so many people in the world, I have loved the music of the Bee Gees all my life”said the director in a statement collected by NME.
“But it wasn’t until I did my first interview with Barry, almost three years ago, that I began to discover their strange creative instincts, their musical gifts, their humor and the brotherhood that made them so uniqueMarshall finished referring to Barry Gibb, the group’s main songwriter. Here we show you the trailer.
