Remember Maurice Gibb

I confess. Most of this post is from the one I did last year to remember Maurice on the 5th anniversary of his premature passing. It's not because I don't want to take the time to put up something original...but because I don't think I can top the clips from last year. And I'm guessing 90% of you didn't see last year's post, and the 10% of you who did have probably forgotten.

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):

Maurice Gibb
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.



We miss you, Maurice.

Thanks for stopping by, Lori.

I hope you get a chance to check out my book. It's a more in-depth tribute with lots more photos and my story of shooting them.
