0520_robin_gibb_gettyRobin Gibb, one-third of the legendary group the Bee Gees, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer. He was 62. 

His spokesperson released a statement that reads, "The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time."

Gibb was diagnosed two years ago with colon and liver cancer. He had been hospitalized several times in the last few years, most recently last month with pneumonia.

Gibb was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994 and the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three years later.

The soundtrack album to "Saturday Night Fever" was the top-selling album until Michael Jackson's "Thriller" took the title.

How Deep Is Your Love by The Bee Gees


I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again


And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love


How deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me


I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest, darkest hour
You're my savior when I fall


And you may not think, I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love


How deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me


And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love


How deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me


How deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me


How deep is your love, how deep is your love
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

Many years before the Bee Gees "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack kick started the disco craze, Robin, Maurice and Barry's music was already entertaining millions of people. Songs like "Massachusetts", "I Started a Joke", "Lonely Days" and my personal favorite "To Love Somebody" were just a few of the great songs these brothers recorded. My best wishes go to Robin's wife & family. WIth Andy, Maurice and now Robin gone, Barry Gibb stands alone. Very sad!

Too Much Heaven by The Bee Gees


(chorus)
Nobody gets too much heaven no more
It's much harder to come by
I'm waiting in line
Nobody gets too much love anymore
It's as high as a mountain
And harder to climb


Oh you and me girl
Got a lot of love in store
And it flows through you
And it flows through me
And I love you so much more
Then my life, I can see beyond forever
Everything we are will never die
Love is such a beautiful thing
Oh you make my world a summer day
Are you just a dream to fade away?


(chorus)


Ooh you and me girl
got a highway to the sky
We can turn away
from the night and day
And the tears we had to pay
You're my life
I can see a new tomorrow
Everything we are will never die
Love is such a beautiful thing
When you are to me, the light above
Made for all to see our precious love


(chorus)


Love is such a beautiful thing
You make my world a summer day
Are you just a dream to fade away?


(chorus)


Nobody gets too much love anymore
Its as wide as a river and harder to cross


(chorus)


(repeat to fade)

This was a given as soon as the words liver and pancreatic cancer was announced. That he hung on for over a year or so is a tribute of modern medical treatment. Didn't the twin also have the same condition?
