EUGENE, Ore. - Robin Gibb, a singer with the Iconic 70s band the Bee Gees, lost his battle with cancer on Sunday afternoon.
According to a statement on Gibb's website, the 62 year-old singer passed away after "his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery."
Gibb was one of three members of the Bee Gees group.
The band became a sensation with the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever and the iconic "Stayin' Alive" hit.
Local music fans in Eugene were saddened by the news of Robin Gibb's passing on Sunday.
"The Bee Gees was my very first concert I'd ever been to," said Rosa Irvine, a Bee Gees fan from Eugene. "Back then all the theme songs from 'Saturday Night Fever' were playing."
Irvine said her long time favorite is "How can you mend a broken heart?"
Mel Winmill said she grew up listening to the group.
Winmill said her favorite Bee Gees song is "Still Waters (Run Deep)."
"'Still Waters' is one of those whenever you're upset and you just need to mellow out, that's the best way to do it," Winmill said.
Barry Gibb is the only surviving member of the Bee Gees.
Maurice Gibb, Robin's twin brother, passed away at the age of 53 in 2003 of complications of a twisted intestine.
The youngest brother, Andy, died at 30 years old of heart failure after a successful solo career.
