Biography

British-American musician, one of three brothers who formed the Bee Gees. In their 20-year career they wrote more than 1000 published songs and established a recording studio in Miami, FL. He and Barry had a falling out with Robin, who went solo with "Robin's Reign," but when his career foundered, they reunited as a trio in late 1970. They sold two million American singles in 1971 but then languished.

In the mid-70s the disco explosion revived the group and made them superstars. Their authorized biography, "The Illustrated Bee Gees" was published in 1979.

Maurice married the singer Lulu 2/18/1969; they separated in 1973 and later divorced.

Their younger brother, Andy, following his brothers into stardom but got heavily into drugs and died on 3/10/1988. Maurice took warning and by 2000, celebrated a decade of sobriety. He and his second wife, Yvonne, have a daughter, Sami, 20, he fronts her Miami band and often collaborates on songs with her brother Adam, 25. The entire family settled as neighbors in Miami Beach, FL.

Maurice's death at 53 at a Miami Beach hospital was unexpected. He had been admitted to the hospital the prior Wednesday and had surgery on Thurs. On the way to emergency surgery for a blocked intestine, he had cardiac arrest on 1/12/2003.
