Bee Gees name put to rest with Gibb Add to ...

The Bee Gees name died with Maurice Gibb, one of the surviving band members said yesterday. Robin Gibb said he and older brother Barry would no longer 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 British TV.

Maurice Gibb died Jan. 12 at age 53 following a heart attack he had before emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage. AP
