Can somebody tell me why Maurice Gibb was not given more opportunity to sing lead on some of their songs? His voice is great! Here's a chance to hear him solo.

EDIT: LukeShoveller has answered my question perfectly. See his comments.

Recorded at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in 1997.

Why the advertising? Be thankful for it. Eagle Rock, the content owner of this concert has smartly chosen to place adds on their copyrighted material and leave it available on YT. Had this been a Warner Music Group product, I wouldn't even be able to post it. If you enjoy this, please purchase the DVD.

Why is the video a bit jerky in HQ? Because Eagle Rock doesn't want it to be TOO good, or it would match the quality of the DVD ;-)

I think that, for the Bee Gees, the lead vocal is basically the creator of the song, isn't it?

Looks like Maurice is LipSyncing. Don't get me wrong. I love the Bee Gees.

He was terribly under-rated, and the peacemaker....not pushing for solos. It's a shame that more of his voice isn't showcased.

He Maurice ended up being an alcoholic early on in his life and career and it took him forever to go into recovery! This is the Mo in recovery -- beautiful voice and clean as well as sober!

Who sings what was the reason why the Bee Gees broke up for few years. The bottom line is that Barry was the most handsome and the one with the falsetto too and we all know how the record industry works. What surprises me is that with all those millions they earned, they didn't think of spending a bit for the visuals! We all went to the gym in the 1980's except them. It's pop stardom and the way you look matters a lot. That's Entertainment!

Why is Maurice miming here? if he's not it certainly looks like he is. In fact it looks like they all are. Was this video made with the actual song put over it
