Tributes pour in for tragic Bee Gees star Robin Gibb


Fellow musicians and fans have been remembering Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb, who died on Sunday after his long battle with colon and liver cancer. The singer was 62 when he died and had provided decades of chart hits with the band including ‘Night Fever’ and ‘Stayin’ Alive’. Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini said Gibb was “talented beyond even his own understanding”. The Bee Gees wrote their own number one hits as well as huge hit records for Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Celine Dion, Destiny’s Child, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. Robin Gibb and the Bee Gees both became the top trending topics on Twitter within moments after he was announced dead. Canadian rocker Bryan Adams tweeted: “Robin Gibb RIP. Very sad to hear about yet another great singer dying too young.” Former Simply Red singer wrote: “RIP Robin Gibb. A musical giant.” Eighties rock band Duran Duran posted on their account: “Sorry to hear about the passing of Robin Gibb of the BeeGees. Our condolences to his friends and family.”
