Robin Gibb Dies at 62

Robin Gibb, co-founder of the Bee Gees, has died after a long battle with colon and liver cancer. He was 62.

The musician passed away Sunday afternoon (May 20), Rolling Stone reports.

Robin and his brothers rocketed to fame during the 70s with songs such as “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Night Fever,” and “Stayin’ Alive.” Their Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is credited with the revival of disco.

Robin is survived by wife Dwina Murphy Gibb, four children, and brother and bandmate Barry Gibb.

Our thoughts go out to Robin’s family and friends during this difficult time.
