Bee Gee singer Robin Gibb dead at 62
Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees has died at age of 62, according to a statement from his spokesperson.
Gibb reportedly spent a week in a coma last month, after announcing he'd been fighting colon and liver cancer. His spokesperson's statement cited Gibb's "long batter with cancer and intestinal surgery" as cause of death.
He's survived by his older brother and bandmate, Barry. Maurice, the third member of the Bee Gees and Robin's fraternal twin, died at age 53. Andy, the youngest member of the family and solo artist, died in 1988 at the age of 20.
The Bee Gees rose to fame in the 1970s with such hits as "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever" and "How Deep Is Your Love." In 1997, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
They are said to have sold more than 200 million records, had six consecutive No. 1 records in the late '70s and won seven Grammys.
