    For me, this death hits pretty hard. Both my brother and I have digestive system issues. Both Maurice and Robin had intestinal/digestive issues which led to their passing. Digestive Cancer is not something that can be tossed over the shoulder like a grain of salt. It is very serious and deadly. Right now early detection is the only cure, but here is to hoping that there will be a better cure in the future. My heart goes out to Barry and actress Cynthia Gibb on Robin's unfortunate passing.

    what can you say about Robin and his brothers...another great band..i saw the BeeGees in 1977 in concert during the saturday night fever times. it was the first concert i had ever been to and will never forget the night.....they always seemed like a bunch of nice guys and deserved every hit they recorded. to this day in the summertime hearing stayin alive in my car and more than a woman still make me feel great.

    When Barry is ready i hope he'll get back into the studio...I'm sure life has not been easy for him losing all his brothers...come on Barry get the steam and come back. your fans still love you and the music that made the BeeGees.

    CNN: please get rid of the comments from the disgusting scatological creeps who always comment below your stories. Nobody wants to see 'toilet humor' from Reetards who think they are funny. Robin Gibb dying is sad and then his fans get to see moronic comments below the story.
