Sad Robin Gibb dead at age 62

Robin Gibb, member of the Bee Gees, dies after battle with cancer - CNN.com

He was 62.
Gibb "passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery," said the statement, which was attributed to his family.
Diagnosed with colon and liver cancer, Gibbs had been in a coma as he battled pneumonia earlier this spring, representative Doug Wright said.
Doctors believe that Gibb had a secondary tumor, Wright said April 14, confirming a news account in the U.K. newspaper The Sun. Gibb had emergency surgery in 2010 for a blocked bowel and then had more surgery for a twisted bowel, Wright confirmed.
The only surviving member of the three Bee Gees is brother Barry, 65.
Robin's twin brother, Maurice, died in 2003 from a twisted bowel.
And younger brother Andy Gibb died at age 30 from a heart infection.
The Brothers Gibb -- calling themselves the Bee Gees -- soared to renown after the 1977 film "Saturday Night Fever" starring John Travolta was built around the group's falsetto voices and disco songs.
In the latter part of the 1970s, the British-born Bee Gees "dominated dance floors and airwaves. With their matching white suits, soaring high harmonies and polished, radio-friendly records, they remain one of the essential touchstones to that ultra-commercial era," the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says on its website.
"Saturday Night Fever" and the group's 1979 album "Spirits Having Flown" yielded six No. 1 hits, "making the Bee Gees the only group in pop history to write, produce and record that many consecutive chart-topping singles," according to the Hall of Fame.
While often more in the background, Robin Gibb was the lead singer on several of the Bee Gees' top tunes including "I Started a Joke" and "I've Gotta Get a Message to You." He also recorded several solo albums during his career.
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, the Bee Gees sold more than 200 million albums, and their soundtrack album to "Saturday Night Fever" was the top-selling album until Michael Jackson's "Thriller" claimed that distinction in the 1980s.
I remember my parents blasting his stuff. Kind of sad to see the icons of the 70s-80s start dropping.

Very sad!

Only one member of the BeeGees left....

I have to admit that I loved their music. I actually the Saturday Night Fever album and I still listen to it frequently.

While I might get a lot of guff from the young folks on this site, I feel that the BeeGees music was much better than must of the junk on the radio today.

Yeah, the BeeGees get knocked for being part of the disco era but they were popular for a reason. I think the trend tends to be to knock what was popular in the past as if you have clairvoyance of what's supposed to be good. I always like it when some young person tries to knock the muscle cars of yesteryear only to get educated. You can't appreciate the greatness of the present without respecting the greatness of the past.

Truth is, the BeeGees had hit records on the radio long before disco, and continued to have hits after disco was dead.

I still like 70s music. More pleasant to the ear than a lot of the current stuff, IMO. (I was a kid in the 70s.)

Sad that he died so young, but at least he's reunited with his twin.
