Happy Birthday, Robin Gibb

Happy sixty-second birthday tomorrow (December 22) to Robin Gibb, a third of the talented super-group the Bee Gees.

Robin and his identical twin brother brother Maurice, who passed away in 2003, were born on the Isle of Man. While the family was living in Australia, they along with older brother Barry began their musical careers in the 1960's.

Robin recorded not only as part of the Bee Gees but also as a solo performer. He has had solo releases in 1970, 1983 to 1985, 2002 and 2006.

In November 2011 it was revealed that he has been battling liver cancer. Robin is determined to beat it.

The Bee Gees have had songs on a number of soundtrack albums that I have reviewed previous on my blog.
