Robin Gibb

May 23, 2012

Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees has died. He was 62.

He death is a big loss for those of you old enough to recall the days and the addicting sounds of disco music and the Bee Gee’s “Stayin Alive” and “Night Fever.”

Those were great days, a bit simpler when some of us were much younger and our lives stretched before us like an endless dream.

And even for those of you who are not familiar with his music and that of the Bee Gees who did not live through that era, there is the feeling that his death comes as final exclamation point to that era when disco was the rage of the nation.

Gibb was a vegan who did not drink alcohol. He died of cancer. We are sorry to note his death.
