his unmistakable voice and emotional phrasings will endure for future generations to explore ... i always was captivated by Robin speaking of their songwriting process ... here is a fine, later, collaboration... appropriate


this is a short but sweet snippet:


imo, probably the ultimate Robin performance:


the bee gees vol 1 + 2 lps were spinning in our house years before gord was

i think these were the first tones i heard...


sad end of an era ...barry, alone & the eldest, survives andy, maurice, robin

Immortality (the Bee Gees)

So this is who I am
And this is all I know
And I must choose to live
For all that I can give
The spark that makes the power grow

And I will stand for my dream if I can
Symbol of my faith in who I am
But you are my only
And I must follow on the road that lies ahead
I wont let my heart control my head
But you are my only

And we don't say goodbye
We don't say goodbye
And I know what I've got to be

Immortality
I make my journey through eternity
I keep the memory of you and me
Inside

Fulfill your destiny
It's there within the child
My storm will never end
My fate is on the wind
The king of hearts
The jokers wild

We don't say goodbye
We don't say goodbye
I'll make them all remember me

Cause I have found the dream that must come true
Every ounce of me must see it through
But you are my only

I'm sorry I don't have the role for love to play
Hand over my heart I'll find my way
I will make them give to me...

Immortality
There is a vision and a fire in me
I keep the memory of you and me
Inside

And we don't say goodbye
We don't say goodbye

With all my love for you
And what else we may do

We don't say goodbye...

After hearing of his passing, the first person I thought of was his brother Barry, as I got to wondering how he was handling the situation.
