We often hear people talking about genius in the music industry and in this case it is deserved. For 50 years the Bee Gees produced worderful songs, not just for themselves, but for other great stars. Just like Lennon & McCartney it is difficult to say who had the major part in writing individual songs but serious music people can usually tell who took the lead despite their music carrying the R & B tag. He wrote some wonderful songs and what an inspiring and distinctive voice he had. My flatmate in London who was into Cream at the time used to mock me for liking the Bee Gees and called Robin the bleating sheep.
My thoughts go to Barry and to all the family in this difficult time but be rest assured Robin will never be forgotten.
