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.

Sad. Yet useless pieces of sheet like the trashians and blowhans still exist. Life is hell.

This makes me sad for the family. Things just wont be the same. The Bee Gees were such a great group for the 70's and 80's kids growing up. my childhood and young adult life was spent listening to them on tv and the radio. as an adult I have lots of their cd's and they're music will live on forever.

Another good old days icon bites the dust. Way to treat the Big C is to remove the toxins that caused it and boost the immune system with a high nutrition vitamin/mineral diet. To go the typical radiation and chemo route is to throw gas on a fire.

Although they are synonymous with disco because of SNF, the BeeGees were great artists. Their stuff from the 60s & 70s was epic. Check out Main Course if you haven't heard it, one song better than next. SNF was a monster, but these guys were way more than that.
