RIP Robin Gibb: 10 Essential Bee Gees Classics

Bee Gees superstar Robin Gibb passed away Sunday afternoon after battling cancer and pneumonia, according to NPR News. He was 62.

Gibb, alongside twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry, rocketed to global fame in the '70s as the Bee Gees became synonymous with disco. Three of the funkiest blue-eyed soul men in history, they were the biggest pop group in the world for a time, eventually selling more than 200 million albums. The Bee Gees were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

Robin's health had been a concern for some time. While he was undergoing surgery to correct the same twisted-intestine issue that ended the life of Maurice Gibb, his fraternal twin, a tumor was discovered. The singer had been battling colon and liver cancer when he was hospitalized last month.
