Last week Disco mourned one of its pioneers in the form of Donna Summer, and now we wake up to find another legendary figure has been taken from us.

Bee Gees' singer Robin Gibb died aged 62 after losing a battle with cancer, despite reports (back in February) that he was making a recovery.

"The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time."

A very sad day for music indeed.
