Robin Gibb: 1949-2012

Singer Robin Gibb has reportedly passed away after a long battle with colorectal cancer. He was 62 years old.

Gibb was first diagnosed with the disease in 2010, and on April 14 of this year, it was revealed that he had slipped into a coma and was fighting for his life after a bout with pneumonia. The English singer/songwriter—who later found success in Australia—is best known as a member of the seminal disco group The Bee Gees, where, along with his twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry, he produced some of the biggest dance hits of the ‘70s, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Emotion.”
