Maurice Ernest Gibb, CBE (22 December 1949 – 12 January 2003) was a musician and singer-songwriter. He was born in the Isle of Man, the twin brother of Robin Gibb, and younger brother to Barry. He is best known as a member of the singing/songwriting trio the Bee Gees, formed with his brothers Robin and Barry. The trio got their start in Australia, and found major success when they returned to England. The Bee Gees became one of the most successful pop groups of all time.

Born Maurice Ernest Gibb to Barbara (née Pass) and Hugh Gibb on the Isle of Man. Maurice (pronounced "Morris"), was the twin brother of Robin Gibb, and was the younger of the twins by 35 minutes. The fourth-born of five children, he had one older sister, Lesley (b. 1945), and three brothers, Barry (b. 1946), twin Robin (b. 1949), and Andrew (b. 1958, d. 1988). In the 1950s, he and his family moved to Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester before, in late 1958, the family, now including baby brother Andy, moved to Brisbane, Australia, settling in one of the city's poorest suburbs, Cribb Island, which was subsequently demolished to make way for the Brisbane Airport.

Gibb was married to the Scottish pop star Lulu from 1969 to 1973; they had no children, and the pressure of their respective commitments led to their divorce. Together with his second wife Yvonne, Gibb had two children: Adam and Samantha.
