The long awaited trailer to HBO Max's new documentary, The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, has been posted with a December 12th premiere date announced. Rolling Stone reported, the doc features “revealing interviews with oldest brother Barry Gibb and archival interviews with the late-twin brothers Robin and Maurice Gibb. The film features a wealth of never-before-seen archival footage of recording sessions, concert performances, television appearances, and home videos.”
The film, which was directed by Frank Marshall, features interviews with Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, music producer Mark Ronson, Maurice's first wife, singer Lulu, and RSO Records executive Bill Oakes, among others.
Shortly before his 2012 death, Robin Gibb shed light on the group's beginnings: “Well, we started writing songs when we were eight-years-old and started natural harmonies. Nobody ever taught us anything, so we did it out of fun — for nothing else. We started in Manchester just copying what we heard on the radio and imagining what their new single would be like and as young as eight or nine we were actually imagining and composing music.”
