|Robin Gibb 1949-2012|
This statement came from a Gibb Family Spokesperson: "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," reads the statement. "The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time."
Robin is the third Gibb brother to pass away. His twin brother Maurice died in 2003 of complications from a twisted intestine. The youngest Gibb, Andy Gibb, who was not in the Bee Gees, died of a viral infection to the heart. The surviving member of the Bee Gees, and remaining Gibb Brother, is Barry Gibb.
