I just want to take a moment to remember Maurice.
It was on this day in 2003 that Mo died following a heart attack during abdominal surgery. He was just 53 years old.
Mo was always “the quiet one”, the “man in the middle” as he so eloquently put it in the song of the same name. His untimely death spelt the end for one of the world’s most enduring and popular groups in modern musical history.
Although brothers Barry and Robin have both recorded solo material since and, on a few occasions, performed live sets together, we have yet to see them recording together.
I think most of us would agree that, as great as that would be, the Bee Gees will never be the same without Maurice.
RIP Mo. Your legend lives on in your music.
