Robin Gibb 1949 – 2012

British born, Australian singer Robin Gibb has died.

Robin enjoyed a musical career spanning six decades, from humble beginnings in the 1950s singing with his brothers in cinemas, to his recent first classical venture, The Titanic Requiem, penned with his son Robin-John.

Gibb was too ill to attend the April 10 premiere, where he had been due to perform the song Don’t Cry Alone.

“It’s not about how complicated music is; it’s about how simple and relative to the human spirit it is,” Gibb said on his new composition.

Robin’s twin Maurice died in 2003. Robin’s death leaves Barry as the only surviving brother of the Bee Gees.

Theirs was the music which backgrounded my teens and twenties.

    Lovely. Ta. Backgrounded much of my life too. Very sad that only one remains.

    Before they went to Australia they lived on the same street as my Mam in Manchester. Kepple Rd. If I’ve heard it once…..
