Robin Gibb (1949-2012)

Robin Gibb, one-third of the iconic band who sounded like a they all just got kicked in the balls, the Bee Gees, died today after a long battle with cancer. I just assumed it would have been night fever. Boom! I crack myself up! CNN reports:

Gibb “passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery,” said the statement, which was attributed to his family. He died in England at 10:47 a.m. (5:47 a.m. ET), according to a post on his official Twitter feed.

I really can’t make fun of this dude, because no matter who you are, you’ve sang a Bee Gees song at some point in your life. And so has everybody else (here, here, and here). So, safe travels, Robin. Maybe they’ll let you sing lead.

Not so much, I’m afraid:
