Robin Gibb has died in London at the age of 62 of colorectal cancer. Gibb had been in a coma in April and was reported close to death by some media sources. However he emerged from the coma but died Sunday morning.
His death leaves Barry Gibb as the only surviving member of the Bee Gees. Andy Gibb had died at the age of 30, from a heart condition, in 1988 and Robin’s fraternal twin brother Maurice had died of a heart attack in 2003 at the age of 53.
The Bee Gees singing How Can You Mend A Broken Heart with Robin and Barry Gibb featured in their first No.1 song on U.S. charts which was recorded in June of 1971.

Bee Gees singing their classic hit How Deep Is Your Love
My favorite Bee Gees songs were How Can You Mend A Broken Heart and How Deep Is Your Love. Their harmonic sound reminds me of the Beach Boys.
Robin, Maurice and Andy Gibb may have passed away, but as long as music fans love great harmony, their music will live on forever.
