Robin Gibb Is Dead at 62

Disco died in the early '80s, and then again this week with the passing of legends Donna Summer and now Robin Gibb, who lost his long battle with cancer this weekend. He was 62. I can't state enough how horribly sad this makes me. The Bee Gees are responsible for more musical joy than almost anyone gives them credit for -- and for three of the four Gibb men to have died prematurely is both a tragedy for the family, and for the world. I'll be playing "Run to Me," "Too Much Heaven," "To Love Somebody," "Chain Reaction," "I've Gotta Get a Message to You," "Nights on Broadway," "Jive Talkin'," "More Than a Woman," "How Deep Is Your Love?," "Tragedy," "Massachusetts," "You Win Again," "One" and many others over and over so long as I live, knowing there will never be another trio of brothers this musically gifted again. RIP, Robin. Read his New York Times obituary HERE.
