26. I know.

Barry looks lost, too. I hope he will be comforted and have peace as time goes by.

Very talented group - each with individual talent, and combined - out of this world talent!

15. Virgo here, too. And the 70s were amazing.

Backpacking in Europe, Michigan State University, bell bottoms, then gainfully employed - and platform shoes. What was I thinking?

Anyway, don't cry. You have much to enjoy, except my Tigers are likely to beat your Red Sox.

10. so very sad

I grew up listening to the Bee Gees, and still love their music. All of the brothers who have passed away, have died too young. My condolences to his family, his mother, and to Barry.

13. R.I.P.

So sorry to see yet another entertainer from my high school years go. Had hoped he was recovering after coming out of the coma.

Condolences to the Gibb family and may he rest in peace.

Edit to add one of my fave songs:

18. All these young people dying--Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, now Robin Gibb....

These folks should be selling Golden Oldie records on late nite info-mercials, not dying so damn young.

What a shame.
