Robin Gibb Looses Battle With Cancer [Video]
The world of music is in mourning now, wrapped in a shroud of shock. Robin Gibb, one-third of the famous Bee Gees, died earlier today in a London hospital.
Gibb seemed to be doing well until recent weeks, even finding the inspiration and energy over the past year to compose the classical music piece, "Titanic Requiem", with his son, RJ. The piece was in memory of those who died when the Titanic sank in 1912, 100 years ago. Gibb was unable to attend the premiere of his masterpiece on the anniversary of the sinking last week, slipping into a coma after contracting pneumonia.
Robin Gibb will be remembered by fans for his unmistakeable falsetto voice, which drove the hit singles "I Started a Joke" and "I Gotta Get a Message to You", to the top of the charts for the Bee Gees.
