Remembering Robin Gibb: A Video History

A video retrospective of Gibb's career, starting with this 1963 TV appearance with a 14 year old Robin singing this cover of Lonnie Donnegan's 1960 UK #1 hit...



Another early TV performance...



One of Robin's best vocals.  This was their first UK #1 hit (#11 in the US):



A US top ten hit in 1968 and eventually covered by Faith No More, The Wallflowers, The Dirtbombs and Robbie Williams...



The group's first #1 US hit, remarkably it failed to dent the UK charts...



This non-album single hit the US top twenty



From the Bee Gees' 1975 "comeback" appearance on NBC's The Midnight Special...




The release of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack took the band to new heights with 5 Gibb-written songs in the Top 10 at the same time. It also marked the effective end of the Robin's trembling tenor balancing lead vocals duties with Barry's breathy falsetto due to the sheer magnitude of these megahits...


His biggest U.S. solo hit (#15) from the Sgt. Pepper soundtrack in 1978




The 1967 folk tragedy (performed in Australia in 1989) was the band's first US top 40 hit...



Another great early single from the Australian performance...



This is the Bee Gees' One Night Only, shot in 1997 at the MGM Grand. It's almost 2 full hours of the best of the group and one of the few full concert videos ever shot of them.



And finally, here's Gibb's last great vocal, from his Titanic Requiem recorded for the 2012 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic:

R.I.P Robin Gibb (1949 - 2012)

MJTV: Robin Gibb - I've Just Gotta Get A Message To You (Live With The Frankfort NPO)

R.I.P. to one of the most unique voices in the history of pop music.  Gibb passed away today at the age of 62.
