Robb Gibb, a member of the Bee Gees, has died today at the age of 62, due to colorectal cancer.
During the band's early years, Robin was the lead singer of the group before his brother Barry would take on the role. During his time with the Bee Gees, the group produced songs such as "I Started a Joke", "Staying Alive" and "Night Fever". He also worked with his brother Barry on writing songs for other artists. Tracks such as Barbara Streisand's "Woman in Love" and Kenny Rogers "Islands in the Stream" were written by the duo. Robin's last work was an opera that he co-wrote with his son RJ entitled "Titanic Requiem". It premiered on April 10, 2012 in London, but Robin was unable to attend.
He is survived by his mother, his brother, Barry, his sister, Lesley, his sons, Spencer and RJ, his daughters, Melissa and Snow, and a collection of songs that will ensure that his voice lives on for years to come.
