The late twins would have celebrated their 70th birthdays this week. Along with their brother Barry, the only surviving Bee Gee, they were genius singers and songwriters who bought some wonderful songs sung by either them or other people to the world. Maurice died in January 2003 at the age of 53 and Robin passed in May 2012 at the age of 62.
In 1999 The Isle Of Man, where they were born, honored them by representing their work on a series of postage stamp.
Let’s remember the first of their five UK number ones from 1967.
