Subject: RE: Obit: Bee Gees- Maurice - And then there were two
Someone on the local radio said Maurice was bass - presumably in the harmony section rather than instrumentally. Which means he probably didn't do many solos or leads.
I'm not really a fan of their music but I appreciate their harmonies and they did a lot for the early pop scene in Australia (which helped NZ too).
Also, I admire their 'local louts make good' story. Robin and Maurice must have been about 8 years old when they started performing in public. According to their biography, they were heading for borstal but found fame instead.
Good on ya boys.
