Robin Gibb, of the legendary group the Bee Gees, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer.
His spokesperson released a statement that reads, “The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
Gibb was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Bee Gees were inducted three years later, in 1997.
According to Wikipedia, It has been estimated that the Bee Gees’ career record sales total more than 220 million, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees”.
