Gibb tells of life without brothers

The last surviving Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, has described his emotions on going back on the road without his brothers Robin and Maurice by his side.

Robin died last May, and Maurice in 2003.

The 66-year-old singer/songwriter, who played in Australia earlier this year and will entertain audiences in Britain and Ireland in the autumn, told The Sun: "On stage is hard. One minute you feel they're right with you, the next you know you've got to pull something off yourself.

"The audiences have been incredible, they've been so supportive. They're finding closure as well."

Gibb said his wife Linda had told him to stop moping around the house.

"She told me to get off my backside and stop going along with the whole idea that everything was finished for me.

"She said, 'You've got music, so make music!' That was her kicking me, so I decided to jump right in."

The absence of his brothers is eased by having his eldest son Stephen on guitar, and Maurice's daughter Sam singing with him.

He said: "We created this show that really celebrates everything we ever did, or as much as we could put in to a show. I feel good. I felt a lot worse last year with all the stress over Robin.

"Personally, I think Robin knew he was dying. I knew he was ill for a long time, it wasn't just the last couple of years. It's a hard reality, but we will all see it at some stage. That's the lesson, it's not unique to any person."
