Robin Gibb RIP

Late yesterday the family of Robin Gibb CBE announced with great sadness that he had finally lost his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery (CLICK). He was 62. British born, he and his brothers, Maurice and Barry, began their singing careers in Australia when Robin was only eight years old (CLICK for BBC video). They returned to the UK as the Bee Gees. Who can forget Robin's haunting performance of Massachusetts (CLICK for YouTube video)? Saturday Night Fever helped the Bee Gees to become one of the biggest selling pop groups of all time. Robin and Barry received their CBE's in 2004 (CLICK for slide show).

Rest In Peace you wonderful man, you gave so many happiness with your great talent. Part of my childhood sang because of you and your two brothers. My condolences to the family.
