Barry Gibb, the sole remaining member of the Bee Gees, is paying tribute to his brother Robin Gibb with a moving video he posted on YouTube.

Simply titled “Bodding,” which, according to the UK’s Daily Mirror, was Robin’s nickname, the video features home-movie footage of the brothers Gibb as children, as well as behind-the-scenes clips from throughout their career. The brothers are seen on tour buses, in dressing rooms, at rehearsals and with fans. The video tribute is set to the Bee Gees’ song “Heart Like Mine.”

Robin Gibb died last weekend after a long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery.

Barry, who has made no public comment on his brother’s death other than the video, is “said to be heartbroken,” according to the Mirror.

The newspaper reported that the family is planning a private funeral next week and a memorial service may be held at a later date.

Robin’s twin Maurice, the third member of the Bee Gees, died in 2003, during surgery to treat a twisted bowel, a congenital condition. A fourth brother, Andy Gibb, died in 1988 at age 30 of heart failure.
