Robin Gibb & the Bee Gees
Robin Gibb 1949-2012
Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer. Gibb was 62 years old. Two years ago, Gibb battled colon and liver cancer, but despite making what he called a "spectacular recovery," a secondary tumor recently developed, complicated by a case of pneumonia. The Bee Gees' massive success arrived with their proto disco hit, "Jive Talkin'," in 1975; two years later, their contributions to "Saturday Night Fever" made them bigger stars than ever. Most of the hits from that era featured Barry's falsetto voice, but the brothers' vocal blend remained an indelible part of their sound.
