Robin Gibb Dead At 62
2012-05-21 by andcas | 31 Comments

Robin Gibb, one of the three brothers who made up the Bee Gees, has passed away after a long battle with liver cancer. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer had slipped into a coma but miraculously came to last month despite having only a 10 percent chance at survival. The British singer finally succumbed to the disease surrounded by his family and leaves behind a memorable legacy.

The man produced some stellar pop albums but is widely remembered as a predominant voice of the disco movement at the height of his career. Gibb’s distinct vibrato was a key element in bringing such classic hits as “Stayin’ Alive,” “How Deep is Your Love,” “Night Fever,” and “You Should Be Dancing.” At this moment fellow bandmate Barry sadly remains the last living Gibb member.

Their pre-disco music was really pretty great, though I like a lot of their disco phase music as well. "Tragedy" is especially awesome.

Can't say I'm a fan, but the Bee Gee's are legends in their own right.

Tragic news.
