Disco Decimation

For the second week in a row, a disco giant has hustled off to that great, celestial discotheque. It just goes to show you, you can't be stayin' alive forever. While I knew that he'd been born in England, I had no idea that Mr. Gibb was, in fact, a Manxman... it's a pity the Bee Gees never recorded a record in the indigenous Goidelic tongue. Anyway, here's an oldie, a number sung by Robin Gibb before he and his brothers reinvented themselves as Disco superstars:





Man, he sure sounded earnest back then!

UPDATE: The "still" from the video that is displayed on the blog is really unflattering... but I think everyone will remember Robin in a more "aesthetic" fashion.

Yes, quite a shame about another Disco icon gone too soon. And bbfk is right.. Robin Gibb was not THE Gibb bro. Barry was, and of course, the gone too too soon brother Andy.

Robin had that face that only his Mother could love.
Look at me! Speaking ill of the dead. I'm going to go spank myself now. :)

For some reason, I got really sad when I heard about his death. As I said before, the deaths of all these beloved artists is kind of hangin heavy in the air for me.

I'm sure the he made up for this lack in the swinging 70's by getting a lot of tail... can't believe nobody else posted this!

I'll have to ask Pupienus what he thinks of this!

You've been reading that book again, haven't you?
