Robin Gibb announces that he will carry on working with brother Barry, but they will no longer be calling themselves the Bee Gees...
ROBIN GIBB has said that the Bee Gees will not continue, despite earlier promises from his surviving brother BARRY that they would forge ahead after the sudden death of MAURICE from a heart attack during surgery on January 12.
Speaking to the GMTV breakfast TV show, Robin said: “The Bee Gees to us was the three brothers. In Maurice’s name we would respect that and not be the Bee Gees any more.”
He said that he and Barry will continue to make music, which is what they believe Maurice would have wished. But they will not use the name that propelled the sibling trio to stardom during the ’60s and ’70s.
“Anything we do, we will do together, but it’ll be as brothers and not under the name of the Bee Gees. We don’t want to be the Bee Gees again.”
