He along with his brothers, Barry and Maurice Gibb, formed the Bee Gee in the late 1950s which went on to become one of the most successful music groups of all time. The Gibb brothers were interested in music from a young age and formed their first band, The Rattlesnakes, while they were still young boys. They performed in local theatres and were quite popular in their city. Eventually they changed the group’s name to Bee Gees and released their first single ‘The Battle of the Blue and the Grey’. They became a pop sensation over the next few years and were prominent performers of the disco music era. The group was one of the top pop groups in the late 1960s and early 1970s and has sold in excess of 220 million units worldwide. Following his success as a part of the Bee Gees, Robin embarked on a solo career after leaving the group. He did find success as a solo artist, but eventually reunited with his brothers and became a part of the Bee Gees again. The group’s name was retired in 2003 after 45 years following Maurice’s sudden death.
