Bee Gees' Robin Gibb Dies after Long Cancer Battle

By Gregory Katz Associated Press / May 21, 2012

LONDON—With his carefully tended hair, tight trousers and perfect harmonies, Robin Gibb, along with his brothers Maurice and Barry, defined the disco era. As part of the Bee Gees -- short for the Brothers Gibb -- they created dance floor classics like "Stayin Alive," `'Jive Talkin'," and "Night Fever" that can still get crowds onto a dance floor.

The catchy songs, with their falsetto vocals and relentless beat, are familiar pop culture mainstays. There are more than 6,000 cover versions of the Bee Gees hits, and they are still heard on dance floors and at wedding receptions, birthday parties, and other festive occasions.

Robin Gibb, 62, died Sunday "following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery," his family announced in a statement released by Gibb's representative Doug Wright.

Gibb was the second disco-era star to die this week. Donna Summer -- who earned the Queen of Disco title by singing "Last Dance" and "I Feel Love" -- died of cancer in Florida on Thursday.

The Bee Gees, born in England but raised in Australia, began their career in the musically rich 1960s but it was their soundtrack for the 1977 movie "Saturday Night Fever" that sealed their success. The album's signature sound -- some called it "blue-eyed soul" -- remains instantly recognizable more than 40 years after its release.

The album remains a turning point in popular music history, ending the hard rock era and ushering in a time when dance music ruled supreme. It became one of the fastest-selling albums of all time with its innovative fusion of harmony and pulsing beats. The movie launched the career of a young John Travolta whose snake-hipped moves to the sounds of "You Should Be Dancing" established his reputation as a dancer and forever linked his image to that of the Bee Gees.

Recording Academy president Neil Portnow predicted that fans will dance to "Stayin' Alive" and other songs Bee Gees songs for generations to come.

"Robin has had an indelible impact on music," he said.

Despite financial success, Robin Gibb and his brothers endured repeated tragedies. Maurice died suddenly of intestinal and cardiac problems in 2003. Their younger brother Andy Gibb, who also enjoyed considerable chart success as a solo artist, had died in 1988 just after turning 30. He suffered from an inflamed heart muscle attributed to a severe viral infection.

Robin Gibb himself took care of his health and, at the time of his death, was a vegan who did not drink alcohol.

Gibb was for decades a familiar figure on the pop stage, starting out in the 1960s when the Bee Gees were seen as talented Beatles copycats. They sounded so much like the Beatles at first that there were strong rumors that the Bee Gees' singles were really the Beatles performing under another name.

You know you are getting old when all the singers, actors, and famous people you read of in the papers are dying. It's always a sad day to read of another.

There's an old witches tale/wives tale/urban legend that these things occur in threes. There's been Donna Summer, now Barry Gibbs; so who is the third? I don't mean to wish evil or bad on folks, just you sort of notice over time this does happen. Maybe it's better reporting. Maybe there is something to it. I have no answers to that, only an observance.

RIP Barry. Most of your music I didn't like all that well but it is no cause to speak ill of the recently passed on.

Of course, itisjust4fun. How could I have forgotten all these famous people that passed on this month? Chalk it up to getting old too. *smiles* I've come down with DRS.

Thank you for reminding me of recent events I should have remembered on my own.
