PRS for Music Mourns the Loss of Robin Gibb
Guy Fletcher CBE Chairman of the Performing Right Society, part of PRS for Music commented on behalf of the 90,000 songwriters, composers and music publisher members
Few people enjoy a career in music lasting more than 50 years yet Robin Gibb was still only 62 when he passed away. With Brothers Barry and Maurice, they formed one of the most powerful song writing teams of all time. Apart from the phenomenal success of the Bee Gees, they enriched the lives of so many international stars, delivering for them some of their most enduring hits. Islands In the Stream, Chain Reaction, How Deep is Your Love and dozens more.
Robin was also very active in his support of Bomber Command charities and was president of CISAC, The International Confederation of Authors and Composers Societies..... We have lost a true friend and a unique songwriter
