Robin Gibb Of The Bee Gees Singing Fame Has Passed Away

More sad news from the world of music as word of the passing of Robin Gibb, one of the three brothers that made up the famous band The Bee Gees, has passed away at the age of 62.

While he said at the beginning of March that he felt that he was winning the battle against colon and liver cancer Robin was rushed to the hospital March 25 for more surgery and as a result had to cancel a series of performances.

Barry Gibb, 65, is the last surviving brother of the famous music family as Robin Gibb’s twin brother Maurice died in January 2003 during an operation to remove an intestinal blockage, he was 53. The youngest brother Andy Gibb died in 1988 at the age of 30.

In their lifetime The Bee Gees were one of the top-grossing acts of all time and sold more than an estimated 220 million records worldwide.

Of all their songs they are probably the best known for their hit from the John Travolta movie Saturday Night Fever titled Stayin’ Alive¬†and Night Fever.
