Very sad. This family has some terrible luck...

Ironically, I was talking with the ex a couple of weeks ago... I think it was like the day after Donna Summer passed away... and I mentioned the Bee Gees as another example of disco-era talents that had passed away too soon. I mentioned Andy, Maurice and Robin, thinking that only Barry was still alive...

She corrected me and said that Robin was still alive. I looked it up and sure enough, she was correct (at least, at the time).

So... in my usual classy way, when I saw this on the evening news the other night and knowing that she was probably sitting at her place watching the same newscast and eating dinner, I promptly picked up the phone and said, "You were saying?" :lol:

Yeah... I know that sort of thing is probably why I'm separated in the first place. :?

:lmao:

In all seriousness, though... Robin was incredibly talented. It's a shame so many of the great musicians from back in the day seem to be dropping like flies lately. :(

Barry also wrote a lot of songs for other performers. These are true musicians. Not like the type that have everybody else write for them. Shame they were made fun of.

I guess our parents had the same thing in their generation with musical artists they grew up with dying, but I guess we notice it more because we are still into music at our age. My parents stopped paying attention to that once they had kids and started working non-stop.

They all were involved in songwriting and producing projects for other musicians.

I know... Parents are so lame. :roll:

:lol:

Actually, my mother was always a big music fan... but her tastes were completely different than mine back then. Nowadays, there are still plenty of artists she enjoyed that I don't like, but I certainly respect their talent a lot more at least. I think I would have probably had to fight her to get some of my CDs back if she were still around today. :P
