Bee Gees star Barry Gibb regrets the breakdown of his relationship with his brothers and wishes he was closer to them when they died.

In a candid new Rolling Stone interview, the singer reveals he and late siblings Andy, Robin and Maurice had too many bad times and not enough good times during the height of their fame.

He admits he wasn't on great terms with twins Maurice and Robin when they passed away in 2003 and 2012, respectively, and Andy's sudden death in 1988 was a shock for the whole family, who didn't have time to say goodbye.

The Stayin' Alive hitmaker tells the publication, "My only regret is that we weren't great pals at the end. There was always an argument in some form.

"Andy left to go to L.A. because he wanted to make it on his own. Maurice was gone in two days, and we weren't getting on very well. Robin and I functioned musically, but we never functioned in any other way.

"We were brothers, but we weren't really friends. There were too many bad times... A few more good times would have been wonderful."
