Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Robin Gibb
Robin, along with brothers Barry and Maurice, were the core of the legendary Bee Gees, who’s music was the soundtrack to many a life. From their brilliant mid-’60s pop records through their chart-topping record-breaking dance music of the following decade, the brothers Gibb made music that was uniquely their own.
Early hits like ‘Massachusetts’ and ‘To Love Somebody’ paved the way and by 1977’s legendary ‘Saturday Night Fever’ soundtrack, the Bee Gees were true superstars.
Robin had battled colon and liver cancer, and fell into a coma in April. He was 62 years old.
