Gibb brothers won’t use the Bee Gees name

From Associated Press

The Bee Gees name died with Maurice Gibb, said one of the surviving band members Wednesday.

Robin Gibb said he and older brother Barry no longer would use the name under which they and their brother Maurice performed for more than 30 years.

“Anything we do, we will do together, but it’ll be as brothers -- not under the name of the Bee Gees. That will be reserved in history as the three of us,” Robin Gibb told Britain’s “GMTV” television show.


But, he said, the surviving siblings would continue to make music. “I think Maurice would want that.”

Maurice Gibb died Jan. 12 at 53 after suffering a heart attack before undergoing emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage.
