Source of Wealth:Music
British singer and songwriter, Robin Gibb had a net worth of $148 million 2012.
Robin Gibb was one of The Brothers Gibb -- The Bee Gees -- one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. Their soundtrack from the movie Saturday Night Fever defined the disco sound of the 1970s with hits such as "Stayin' Alive" and "How Deep Is Your Love." 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 he had advanced colorectal cancer. He died in London on 20 May 2012 at the age of 62. His twin brother Maurice died in 2003.
