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."

I think "bum buddy" is the correct term.

Listened to the sweet vibes of the Bee Gees Main Course and earlier albums till the wee hours of the morning. Felt like a part of myself had died along with Robin. Bitter sweet memories spanning the years. My heart goes out to Barry. Death is a bitch. R.I.P. Robin.

losing so many people who defined the 70's and 80's is a tragedy and sadly those who were not fortunate to live thru those amazing years of heavy metal, hair bands and disco only have techno voiced heros for this generation. None of them can write and none of them can sing. GOOD BYE ROBIN AND GODS SPEED. DONNA, YOU WERE ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS IN THE DISCO GENRE, YOU ARE ALREADY MISSED.

Just say it, John. You're sad that another famous, gay man has passed. But you'll always have the memories of your hookups with Robin before he took ill.

John Travolta shouldn't be making any statements about anyone right now. What does he think that if he says nothing about the accusations against him it will all be forgotten. It's way too soon for him to think that...

How fortunate I was to have grown up in the era of disco and dancing was great fun. I couldn't imagine my life not having that big part of it in it. Disco rocked and fit nicely in between the rock and roll era and the pop music era. The crap today doesn't even compare.
