Colon/liver cancer and now this. Last picture I saw of him he looked thin/gaunt/weak.

As I remember him, Robin always looked thin/gaunt/weak.

So much tragedy within that family. They are sorely missed. Such talent and brotherly love.

If he dies, will that be the end of the brothers? So sad.

>If he dies, will that be the end of the brothers?<

From the article:

The newspaper and the Press Association news agency said family members including wife Dwina and brother Barry were at his bedside.

I absolutely have always loved the Bee Gees music. I’m always uplifted by their sound. Truly one of the most unique groups of their genre. Heartbreaking all the sadness and loss in the family.

Robin and Barry Gibb are the remaining brothers. So sad about Robin. I’ve been anticipating bad news about Robin for quite some time, given the medical issues he’s fought for so long. Thoughts and prayers are with he and his family.

Me, too.

Loved their music, and To Love Somebody is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Prayers for his family and him.

Geeze...what is it with 60’s rockers? I'm about the same age as many of them and the most serious medical issue I've ever had...most serious *by far*...is the need for a hip replacement.Am I doing something *right*...or are more than a few of *them* doing something *wrong*?

When I think of disco I think of the Bee Gees. A lot of it was corny but these guys defined the musical style I think, and brought some real art into it.
