They were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
After the death of his brother Maurice in 2003, Barry and Robin retired the Bee Gees name. The surviving pair have appeared together since then, and they have worked hard to preserve their musical legacy, producing special collections of their previous work. Gibb has performed as a solo act as well.
The bond between Barry and Robin has remained strong, despite spending much of their time on different continents. Barry spends much of his time in Florida where he lives with his wife, Linda. The couple has five children together. In 2011, he traveled to England to visit Robin and support him after Robin learned he had cancer.
While not as active as he once was, Gibb still gives several concerts each year.
