The Recording Academy® Statement on Robin Gibb May 20, 2012

Six-time GRAMMY® winner and GRAMMY Legend Award recipient Robin Gibb was a singer/songwriter best known as one-third of celebrated pop sibling group the Bee Gees. His distinctive vibrato voice was part of the trio’s signature harmony, and he and his brothers enjoyed many number one hits, including songs from the phenomenally successful album Saturday Night Fever — the GRAMMY-winning Album Of The Year that became the biggest-selling soundtrack of the day and one of the best selling soundtracks of all time. Robin has had an indelible impact on music, and our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and fans around the world who will continue to sing and dance to his music that will be ‘Stayin’ Alive’ for many generations to come.
