Surviving Bee Gees reunite on stage

Mon Feb 20, 5:16 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The surviving members of the Bee Gees, Robin and Barry Gibb, have returned to the stage for the first time since their brother Maurice died three years ago, their publicist said.

The pair reunited for a charity concert in the southeastern US city of Miami on Saturday to raise money for the Diabetes Research Institute, the Bee Gees' publicist Paul Bloch said in Los Angeles.

The Gibb brothers performed hit Bee Gees' songs including their signature "Saturday Night Fever" megahits "Staying Alive" and "How Deep is Your Love" and also did a tribute to Maurice, news reports said.

Maurice Gibb, the singer and bass player of the iconic pop band that turned out hits for more than four decades, died in Miami in January 2003 of an intestinal obstruction that restricted the blood flow to his bowel.

The 53-year-old had suffered a heart attack while undergoing emergency abdominal surgery the previous week.

Maurice, Robin and Barry Gibb founded the Bee Gees, short for the Brothers Gibb, in 1958.

They became one of most successful pop acts of the 1970s, writing dozens of hit songs as well as much of the soundtrack for the 1977 film "Saturday Night Fever", which catapulted disco music into the mainstream.
