And from me. He seemed like the most interesting one of group, not to mention his wife. Another group I grew up with. The nearest I got to them was when I was in the car with my ex around 1997 and they said they were on that night in Wembley and she rang up and got a ticket. I wasn't into concerts so dropped her and picked her up afterwards, and a couple of days later the live cassette was released of it which we bought as well.

There is a thread somewhere here on this forum that told what the #1 song was the day you were born. He (as well as his brothers) held that spot on that day.

He will be missed.

Farewell then, Robin Gibb. It's a funny thing, but since he died, I've been hearing Bee Gees music everywhere.
Late last night, as I walked past the vegetable rack, I even thought I heard the onions singing......but it was just the chives talking.

RIP Robin

I hope Robin heard that, (he must have?), it's a good one. I just heard on the radio the Wembley concert my ex went to was their biggest one ever, it can hold 60,000 people before you include the pitch which is usually used for concerts as well as the seats. It's certainly one of the biggest venues in Britain but must be bigger ones elsewhere, so we've done pretty well here.
