Remembering Maurice Gibb (1949-2003)



It's hard to believe that Maurice Gibb died in 2003.  His death ended The Bee Gees!    (His twin brother Robin died in May 2012)

Maurice usually sang background vocals, played bass, keyboards and co-wrote most the group's songs. He also worked on his brothers' solo 1980's LPs. He co-wrote the Gibb songs for Kenny Rogers ("Islands in the stream"), Barbara Streisand ("Guilty"), Diana Ross ("Chain reaction") and Dionne Warwick ("Heartbraker")!

He wasn't Barry, the girls' favorite.

He wasn't Robin, the one with the signature voice of so many Bee Gees' hits.

Maurice was in the background but had a lot to do with the group's wonderful arrangements.    

They called him "the man in the middle":
