Barry Gibb hasn't commented publicly about the loss of his brother Robin, instead he posted a video montage entitled: 'Bodding', which was Robin's childhood nickname. The video features clips from their career and private lives. He chose their 1993 ballad 'Heart Like Mine' for the soundtrack.
Barry is the only surviving Gibb of the Bee Gees. Robin's fraternal twin Maurice passed in 2003 and the youngest Andy, who wasn't in the band, passed in 1988 due to an inflammation of his heart.
R.I.P. Robin Gibb - May 21, 2012
Robin Gibb, who with his brothers Maurice and Barry helped to define the sound of the disco generation, has passed on after a long battle with cancer. He was 62 years old.
Robin was born on the Isle of Man, between England and Ireland, and spent his early life in Brisbane, Australia. He returned to England when the Bee Gees, who he is best-known for his work with, found success. Music historian Paul Gambaccini described the Bee Gees as "second only to Lennon and McCartney as the most successful songwriting unit in British popular music".
Robin's most recent work was a classical venture, a requiem for The Titanic with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, co-written with his son Robin-John Gibb.
The Bee Gees are one of the most successful pop groups of all time, having sold more than 200 million records worldwide. Starting out as a Beatles-influenced band in the late 1960s, they helped make disco a sensation, and their many hits included 'How Deep Is Your Love,' 'Stayin' Alive', 'Jive Talkin'' and 'Night Fever.'
Robin's work earned him many plaudits: he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and received an Honorary Degree (Doctor of Music) from the University of Manchester. The Bee Gees were also inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
Robin is survived by his children, Spencer, Melissa, Robin-John and Snow Robin.
