R I P Robin Gibb - 1949 - 2012 - Thank You

ROBIN GIBB DIED TODAY (20 May 2012).  He was 62 and one of three brothers MAURICE (d. 2003) and BARRY (b. 1946) who formed a Music Group in 1963 called the BEE GEES.  Robin and Maurice were twins.  Because they were brothers their harmony was perfect with ROBIN's distinctive vibrato and BARRY's R & B Falsetto - awesome ! 




They were all born on the Isle of Man and the family moved to Manchester and then emigrated to Australia in 1958.  They sang together at an early age as a close harmony trio. They had some success but their big break came with the sound track for Saturday Night Fever (1977). Three of the singles "How deep is your Love"  Staying Alive" and "Night Fever"  all reached No. 1 in the USA.  They had many hits and wrote many beautiful hit songs for other singers. They received dozens of prestigious music awards.  Their influence on disco was awesome.  We thank ROBIN and his brothers MAURICE & BARRY for making our lives - and the whole world - much brighter with their infectious music.  WHITE SPIRIT

So sorry to hear that too. My husband was friends with Maurice. We'll miss them.

He will be sadly missed. They are household names here in Australia.

I'm sorry to hear this. I enjoyed the Bee Gees music back then. I never realized, or maybe just don't recall, that they were born in Britain. It's a very nice tribute W.S. Thanks for posting.
