    Its a sad night at the SPOCKED house with this news. We love the Bee Gees and we'll miss the great voice and talent of Robin Gibb.

    Ahh this sucks. I love the Bee Gees, had a dream about them the other night actually. Saturday Night Fever is one of my all time favourite films and a large part of that is due to the soundtrack.

    Sad news indeed. I'd heard he'd been ill, but I was feeling optimistic about it until earlier today. I absolutely love the Bee Gees for "How Deep Is Your Love."

    I love the Bee Gees for the sped-up version of "Stayin' Alive" from Airplane!. Which, IMHO, sounds better than the original.

    (Fun fact: In the HHGTTG radio series, the dance scene in the android disco has "Stayin' Alive" - played backwards.)

    Just think, that song was only a couple of years old when Airplane came out.
