Today is yet another sad day for music. Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees has died, age 62, after a long battle with cancer.
His spokesperson confirmed the news –
“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,” reads the statement. “The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
Despite the fact Gibb had several health scares over the past few years, he made a “Spectacular recovery” rather recently. Unfortunately a second tumor developed, which was only complicated by a case of pneumonia in April.
It will be sad to see him go, as The Bee Gee’s did so much for pop music. RIP Robin.
