Robin Gibb

Singer-songwriter Robin Gibb, a member of the Bee Gees who co-wrote the Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton hit “Islands in the Stream,” died Sunday  at age 62 following a battle with colorectal cancer. Gibb and his twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry  became superstars of the ’70s disco era following their contributions to the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever” and “How Deep Is Your Love.” The three Gibb brothers co-wrote “Islands in the Stream,” which was recorded by Rogers and Parton and spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s country singles chart in 1983.
