*According to a family spokesperson, Robin Gibb, who joined two of his brothers in forming the Bee Gees pop group that helped define the disco era with the best-selling soundtrack to 1977’s “Saturday Night Fever,” has died at 62.
Gibb had been hospitalized in London with advanced colorectal cancer. He had intestinal surgery in March and, after contracting pneumonia, was unable to attend the April 10 premiere in London of “The Titanic Requiem,” a classical composition he wrote with his son, Robin-John, to coincide with the 100th anniversary observance of the luxury ocean liner’s sinking. He later fell into a coma but awoke April 21 after his family spent days singing to him at his bedside.
