Another loss from the Disco era: Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees passed away on Sunday…

Another loss from the Disco era: Robin Gibb one of the Brother’s Gibb, whose falsetto voice gave a distinctive sound to such hits as “Stayin Alive” and “Night Fever” passed away on Sunday after a long battle with cancer.  Robin Gibb was 62.  Despite financial success, the Bee Gees endured repeated family losses.   Maurice died suddenly in 2003. Their younger brother Andy Gibb died in 1988 just after turning 30.  Robin Gibb, along with his brothers Maurice and Barry, started as a band back in the late 1960s, but helped to define the disco era of the 70s.  BTW:  Donna Summer died of cancer last Thursday.  http://apnews.myway.com/article/20120521/D9UT2IR81.html

The “Queen of Disco” Donna Summer passed away on Thursday after a battle with cancer. She was 63. Summer won five Grammy awards for her upbeat hits that soared to the top of music charts in the 70s and 80s.  In a 2008 interview Donna Summer said that  ” I started crying, and I heard the voice of God say to me, ‘You’re going to be famous, and this is power and you’re never to misuse this power.’  A former publicist said that Summer’s Christian faith played an important role in her life as she got older.  Check out the video clips about Summers’ testimony:  www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2012/May/Donna-Summer-Called-Her-Singing-Power-from-God/
