RIP Robin Gibbs

Sorry to start this week off on such a sad note and even though we saw this coming it doesn't make it any easier. 

Robin Gibbs of the Bee Gees died Sunday at the age of 62 following a battle with cancer.
Gibbs, who had been hospitalized for pneumonia and had surgery to remove a growth from his colon, was central to the Bee Gees’ success both as a songwriter and a vocalist. His twin Maurice died in 2003.
Robin Gibbs was the original lead singer of the iconic band that traversed a wide range of musical styles and soared to stardom in the 1970s with hits from the soundtrack to the movie Saturday Night Fever.
The Bee Gees were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
They released their final album in 2001.
