Born Maurice Ernest Gibb (22 December 1949 – 12 January 2003) in Douglas, Isle of Man, he is best remembered as a member of the singing and songwriting sibling trio the Bee Gees. Along with his twin brother of Robin Gibb and older brother Barry, he founded the musical group in 1958. Being popular for most of their decades of recording music, the trio saw two distinct periods of exceptional success: first as a rock act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and then as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s. They released 23 albums in total, which included hits written by themselves, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. Some of their hit singles became real disco classics like "Stayin' Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Night Fever". Even though the trio made their start in England, then they moved to Australia and got back to England again to find major success. All in all, Bee Gees was one of the most successful pop groups ever. Away from the music scene, he was married with Yvonne Gibbs, with whom he had three kids. A great philanthropist as he was, Maurice Gibb loved giving grants and donations to less fortunate people living in the third world countries. This generous practice earned him an award as the most charitable celebrity in the UK at the same time earned him fame in the social media. Gibb passed away on January 12, 2003.
