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.

A real musician, a real entertainer and most importantly a REAL man. You will be sadly missed by millions of people whose lives you touched through music and just your presence alone. RIP Mr Gibb.

Although I love all of the Gibb Brothers, Robin was always my favorite. Such a great voice gone too soon. Love forever Robin, Mo and Andy.

so sad for his immediate family
most don't realize that he was such a prolific songwriter and the main vocalist for Bee Gees
Barry must be overwhelmed with grief from now having to bury his last brother.
he was such a talented - and never heard him say an unkind word about anyone
and never heard anyone say an unkind wourd about him
what a wonderfuly legacy he leaves for his children
so glad that they had as much time as they did together

Soooo sorry to see another person succumb to this horrible disease. Will there ever be a cure for cancer or will it just continually take our loved ones one by one? May the family find some peace during their time of need. I understand what they are dealing with because cancer has visited my family too and has not left yet! RIP Robin Gibbs.
