The Bee Gees, a band from Australia made up of Barry Gibb and twins Maurice and Robin Gibb, hit the charts in the 1960s with pop music such as "Words," "New York Mining Disaster 1941," and "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart." During the disco years, they re-invented themselves, with such songs as "Staying Alive" and "You Should Be Dancing." Maurice died of a sudden heart attack in January 2003 at the age of 53; his twin brother Robin died in May 2012 of complications from liver cancer at the age of 62.
