Back in April, Robin went into a coma for about a week. At that time, he also contracted pneumonia. It was said the he was fighting for his life. In 2011, Robin was scheduled to do a live show, but cancelled just minutes before he was to go on stage.

Robin, and his brothers Barry and the late Maurice had a string of hits starting in the 1960s and 1970s. During the 70s, they recorded many of the hit song for the movie, ‘Saturday Night Fever’, still one of the most popular albums of all time. The hits ‘Stayin’ Alive’, ‘Night Fever’ and ‘You Should Be Dancing’ are all songs that helped bring disco music to a whole new level. This is the second artist that was involved with the disco era to pass away, within a week. The other was Donna Summer.

Not only a singer, Robin Gibb was also a songwriter, and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The Bee Gees also had written ‘Islands In The Stream’ for country stars, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Our condolences to Robin Gibb, dead at 62-years-old.
