British musicians and members of the Bee Gees, Barry and Robin Gibb had a net worth of £110 million ($180m) as of April 2011, according to the Sunday Times UK Rich List. The Bee Gees were a musical group which originally comprised three brothers: Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. A much-delayed box-set of Bee Gee material appeared in 2010. But Mythology was not a huge hit, reflecting the fact that the two surviving Bee Gees, Barry and Robin Gibb had a low profile since the death of their brother Maurice in 2003. The remaining two Bee Gees, who lived in Florida, have sold more than 200m records. Without any recent concerts. The Bee Gees were twins Robin and Maurice with their older brother, Barry. Originally from the Isle of Man, the Gibb family emigrated to Australia in 1958 and the three boys began their recording career in 1963, when they were in their teens. They wrote songs, sang back-up and recorded their own singles, returning to England in 1967 to further their career. The rivalry between Robin and Barry drove Robin to split temporarily from the group, and he had a solo hit with the 1970 single “Saved By the Bell.” For the next four decades Robin performed by himself and with The Bee Gees, having far more success as a brother than as a solo artist.
On 22 April, 2012, it was reported that Robin Gibb had advanced colorectal cancer. He died in London on 20 May 2012 at the age of 62. His twin brother Maurice died in 2003. Robin Gibb was one of The Brothers Gibb — The Bee Gees — one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century.
