Robin Gibb, one of the founding members of the Bee Gees, died Sunday at the age of 62, after a battle with cancer, according to the BBC.
The British born singer had been battling colon and liver cancer, reported the BBC.
Gibb, along with his brothers Barry and Maurice, formed the Bee Gees in 1958.
According to ABC News, the group sold more than 200 million albums and their soundtrack for "Saturday Night Fever" won a Grammy in 1979. Over their career, the Bee Gees won seven Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
A statement from his spokesperson said, "The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery," according to Rolling Stone.
The last Bee Gees album was released in 2001, and two years later, Robin Gibb's twin, Maurice, passed away.
Gibb is survived by four children and his 91-year-old mother, according to ABC News.
