Robin Gibb Dead at 62

Robin Gibb, one-third of the legendary Bee Gees, has died after a long bout with cancer. He was 62.

Robin was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer in 2012.

Gibb spokesperson released the following statement:

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. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”

Barry Gibbs, 65, is the only surviving member of the Bee Gees.

Robin’s twin brother, Maurice, died in 2003 from a twisted bowel. And younger brother Andy Gibb — who was not part of the group — died at 30 from a heart infection.

The Bee Gees were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. The trio sold more than 200 million albums, and their soundtrack album to “Saturday Night Fever” was the top-selling album until Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” claimed the top spot.

He is survived by his wife, Dwina; his daughter, Melissa, and sons Spencer and Robin-John.
