Robin Gibb’s last words paid tribute to late twin brother Maurice


Well loved Bee Gees singer, Robin Gibb passed away on Sunday May 20, 2012 following a long battle with colon and liver cancer.

Surrounded by his loved ones including his wife Dwina, older brother Barry, daughter Melissa, and sons Spencer and Robin-John, Gibb is said to have spent his final moments paying a heartfelt tribute to his twin brother Maurice, who died in 2003 following complications during an operation.

“I wish Mo was here, I can’t believe he is gone,” Gibb is reported to have said.

Friends have revealed the famous singer spoke “constantly” of his deceased brother. Gibb is said to have discussed the possibility of touring with his brother Barry, and, at one point, called out for his youngest son.

In an interview with The Daily Mirror, a friend of Gibb said: “We all knew he was seriously unwell, but his strength of character meant he never once mentioned the possibility he might not make it.

“Instead he talked constantly about touring again, working with his brother Barry and about how much he missed Maurice, or Mo as he always called him.

“It was very moving to hear him speak so lovingly of his twin brother – as though he had never quite accepted that he had gone and still felt the same amazing connection between the two of them that they’d always had.

“He was also an incredibly loving father and husband – on one occasion he woke from his coma and immediately called out for his son, asking ‘where’s RJ?’ ”

It has also been suggested that the Bee Gees singer requested the trio’s classic song, ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’  be the first song to be played at his funeral.
