After a battle with Cancer that put him in a coma and made him cancel many appearances in the coming months. Rolling Stone and BBC Radio have announced that Robin Gibb, one of the founding members of the BEE GEES has died.

Robin died in a London hospital after a battle with colon and liver cancer. He was 62. Robin’s series of health crises began in August 2010 when he underwent emergency surgery to treat a blocked intestine. The same hereditary condition led to Maurice’s death in January 2003 at age 53. Last week, he contracted pneumonia and slipped into a coma.

Gibb’s musical career began when he formed the Bee Gees with his brothers Barry and Maurice in 1958.

The group is among the biggest-selling groups of all time with hits spanning six decades including Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Massachusetts and Night Fever.

In a statement, Gibb’s family said they were announcing his death with “great sadness”.

Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini described Gibb as “one of the major figures in the history of British music”.
