That being said, this photo was not presented in last year's post. I pulled this backstage pic for this year's memorial because I think Maurice would appreciate having a certain other one of his attributes honored... (and in case you are the one person in the world who has no idea who the Bee Gees are or don't know which one is Maurice - he's second from the left):
12/22/49 - 1/12/03
This one brings a tear to my eye. Maurice was married to Lulu from 1969-73.
This one makes me smile. It's from a 1970 TV show the Bee Gees (minus Robin) made for their album Cucumber Castle.
An interview from the Mike Douglas Show in 1974. You gotta love how unprepared journalists can be.
This one makes me laugh. Maurice's "My Thing" also from Cucumber Castle in 1970.
This one is sweet. All Maurice with a solo record Railroad, released in 1970.
Maurice takes center stage in 2001 with Man in the Middle.
