Robin Gibb, Bee Gees star, dies at 62

(CBS/AP) LONDON - Robin Gibb, a founding member of the Bee Gees who helped propel the group to international stardom, has died. He was 62.

<snip>

Gibb was one of three brothers whose soaring falsetto harmonies helped power such hits as "Stayin' Alive" and "Night Fever."

<snip>

Gibb enjoyed a long career as a Bee Gee and as a solo artist and also produced and wrote songs for many other performers.

He appeared gravely ill at his recent public appearances and had to cancel a string of meetings as his condition worsened.

Just last month, Gibb had awoken from a coma and talked about getting back to work. Even when weak and malnourished, he was in positive spirits.

While he was in a coma, Gibb's family played Bee Gees songs, as well as Gibb's recent classical composition "Titanic Requiem." The music may have helped Gibb regain consciousness, his wife said. His family saw Gibb mouthing lyrics "on cue" as he woke up from the coma.

Amazing about mouthing the lyrics as he came out of the coma.

The story does not say if the parents are still alive. If they are, it's unreal what they have had to go through with their sons.

1. Robin sang lead on two of the greatest songs ever....
I Started a Joke and How Do You Mend a Broken Heart. He will be missed for that. And forgiven for the disco stuff.
