Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb

Bee Gees Turned the Underground Gay and Black Disco Movement Mainstream, Then Paid the Price. Barry Gibb is the centerpiece of a new documentary about this family called “The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” out now on HBO Max. Following the success of the “Saturday Night Fever,” dance music became synonymous with disco music, and it rose from the underground to the mainstream. Despite their rise in popularity, the band soon faced repercussions. “It was like waves in the sea. They would just play Bee Gees music all day, and people got tired of it. There was a backlash to not only the music, but to the commercialization of disco,” says the director Frank Marshall. “There was this huge backlash against disco and the Bee Gees very unfairly got caught up in it.” Marshall says the band didn’t understand why they became the face of disco as it lost its popularity. “They were very upset. They were hurt. They were confused. They didn't feel that their music was disco. They felt their music was all different styles. But they got labeled with that thing that really took them down.” Eventually, the band fell out of the limelight and started writing music for other artists, including Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion and Dionne Warwick.
