Found out from the E! ticker, that's a bit of a bummer.

From Voice of America News:

British-born pop music star Maurice Gibb of the group, the Bee Gees, has died in a Miami Beach, Florida hospital. He was 53.

Gibb's family says he passed away overnight Saturday, two days after suffering a heart attack before emergency surgery Thursday to repair a blocked intestine.

In 1958, Maurice, along with twin brother Robin and older brother Barry, formed the Bee Gees, which is short for "the Brothers Gibb." He played bass guitar and keyboards for the trio, which went on to record the best-selling soundtrack of all time for the 1970's disco movie hit "Saturday Night Fever."

The seven-time Grammy award winning group is among the top five highest selling recording artists of all time along with the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney as a solo artist.

The Bee Gees also are members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their last album, This Is Where I Came In, was released in 2001.

The Gibb brothers also wrote and produced hit songs for Presley, as well as for female pop music legends Barbara
Streisand, Diana Ross and Dionne Warwick.

The Bee Gees' younger brother, pop idol Andy Gibb, died in 1988 at the age of 30 of a heart ailment after years of drug

I'm probably the only other one who saw the news reports.

This is sad. Probably means the end of the Bee Gees. And I'm a huge Bee Gees fan!

Not really the only other person. It was in every news bulletin here. You will note if you read the story that..."Although British-born, the Bee Gees always considered themselves Australian." Of course they did, the newspaper said so.

It's a damn shame...but the weird thing is: ABC News claims the surviving Gibb brothers are mad at the Miami hospital where Maurice was.

Hope he rests in peace.

I think one of the good things for the Brothers Gibb was that their strong songwriting over such a long period of time has helped dim the "hated disco band" stigma that followed them after Saturday Night Fever. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the single "This Is Where I Came In" from a couple of years back.

But I no longer carry the shame from my mid-80s rocker phase when my Dad told some friends of mine that I had the 45 for "You Should Be Dancing."

Yeah... that was how I heard about Strummer. Didn't really like them, but shitty nonetheless.
