John Travolta has released a statement on the passing of Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb ... calling the music legend one of the most "wonderful" people he's ever met.

Robin -- along with his brothers Barry and Maurice -- put together the soundtrack for the 1977 disco classic "Saturday Night Fever" ... the flick that helped propel a young John Travolta to become an international movie star.

Travolta tells TMZ, "I thought Robin was one of the most wonderful people -- gifted, generous, and a real friend to everyone he knew. And we'll miss him."

Except for molesting other men, John Travolta seems like a helluva guy, too.

RIP Robin. Thanks for your tunes!

Jeez, if I was the only brother living out of the group, I'd be scared crapless.

I'm not the biggest Travolta fan, but that was nice of John to say something like that. The last thing he wants, I'm sure, is to be in another headline. Atleast until all this other stuff fades a bit.


He could have just said "oh that's sad" so it would go away quicker. But he decided to say something nice about his friend, instead of what would be most beneficial to him. Don't see that to often in that industry. That's pretty cool.

How come these ego driven rich celebs don't know when to go away and keep their big mouths shut?
Nobody wants his opinion on anything now!

Travolta is a good guy, good dad and husband, good friend. So was Robin Gibb.
All the Gibbs have always been genuinely nice guys.
Kind of sad watching them exit life, part of my childhood was in the 70's when disco balls and strobe lights and glittery shiny stuff was the fashion.
These guys are all part of those memories between the movies and the music and the dancing and the bell bottoms :D
RIP
