Robin Gibb, Bee Gees Co-Founder, Dead At 62

CBS News is reporting that Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, has died Sunday after a long battle with cancer. He was 62 years old. His spokesperson confirmed with a statement, that “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,” adding that “the family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.

It was just last month that Robin emerged from a coma, due to complications from pneumonia. He woke from the 12-day coma despite being given just a 10 per cent chance of survival by doctors. His wife and her family had held a constant bedside vigil for Robin, were they played his favorite music in hopes of rousing him. Robin regained consciousness as music from his Titanic Requiem played and he even cried when “Crying” by Roy Orbison played.

For most, Robin Gibb and the Bee Gees are synonymous with the disco movement of the ’70s and movie Saturday Night Fever.
