Robin Gibb dies at age 62…

Robin Gibb, Bee Gees singer has died.

Following the recent death of  Donna Summer,  another defining voice of the disco era, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees,  has passed on after a long battle with cancer. He was 62.

Robin Gibb helped define the disco subculture of the 1970s. His signature song was “I Started a Joke.” The Bee Gees first emerged as a pop-rock act in the late ’60s, but reinvented themselves in the mid-’70s when Robin, Maurice and Barry Gibb came to public attention with the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack.
