Earlier this week the music industry mourned the loss of Donna Summer and now we end the week with more sad news involving a 70’s icon.  Robin Gibb has passed away at the age of  62 after a long battle with cancer.  According to, after being diagnosed with colon and liver cancer, Gibb had been in a coma as he battled pneumonia earlier this spring.

Robin Gibb was one of three brothers who made up the group The Bee Gees, who rose to massive fame behind “Saturday Night Fever” and other now-iconic sounds from the 1970s.  While Robin also had a solo career, it was his singing and songwriting with the Bee Gees that he will be best remembered for.

That songwriting also crossed over into country music, as one of the biggest hits The Bee Gees wrote for another artist was the #1 hit ‘Islands In The Stream’.  The Bee Gees themselves also had a country hit in 1979 with ‘Rest Your Love On Me’.

Robin was an extremely talented singer and songwriter and the music industry finds itself again in mourning.
