R.I.P. Robin Gibb

We’ve had way too many of these R.I.P. posts lately. It’s depressing when we lose great artists.

Robin Gibb was a class act, and with the Bee Gees he helped define the disco era. Disco was already huge when Saturday Night Fever was released, and the “death to disco” roar was already out there. But then it exploded with the movie and the soundtrack. This song was the anthem.

Of course there was much more to the Bee Gees than disco, but this is what they’ll be remembered for. Fortunately, the backlash waned as disco evolved into hip hop and the sounds of 80s dance music.
