Britain's The Daily Express quotes an unnamed family friend as saying solo performances from the surviving Bee Gees brother could be in the cards. “Barry is hurting badly but he knows the boys would expect him to carry on," the paper quotes the source as saying. "Next year looks more likely in terms of a return to the stage. He will do his brothers proud.”
Robin Gibb passed away in May from liver and kidney failure at the age of 62. Maurice Gibb **** in 2003 at age 52 following a heart attack.
Last week Barry took to Twitter to thank fans for their condolences in recent weeks. "I'd like to personally thank all those kind people who grew up with us and enjoyed our music wherever you are in the world," the 65-year-old Gibb wrote. "Our whole family appreciates your support at such a difficult time. I will miss all my brothers deeply."
Then Gibb hinted at a return to the stage writing, "I will live on [in] the music and no matter what stage I'm standing on my three brothers will be standing there with me."
