Barry Gibb Releases Video Tribute To Brother Robin

Though Barry Gibb has been publicly silent since the death of his younger brother Robin, a new video released by the surviving Bee Gee is a loving tribute to his fallen bandmate.

The video, posted to Gibb’s personal YouTube page on Tuesday (May 22), takes a look at Barry, Robin and Maurice (who passed in 2003), as well as youngest brother Andy (who passed in 1988) over the years. Set to the Bee Gees’ “Heart Like Mine,” the nearly five-minute clip is made up of the brothers’ personal home movies, from childhood to superstardom. It also shows candid moments of the Gibbs goofing around, which gives a sense of how close they really were. Barry named the clip “Bodding,” as a nod to his brother’s childhood nickname.

Robin Gibb died May 20 at the age of 62 after a two-year battle with liver cancer, which eventually spread to his colon. Barry is the only surviving member of the Bee Gees.

Grab some tissues and watch the touching tribute below.

    What a touching adn fitting tribute to Robin. It makes me think of my own home movies growing up as well as slides and photos that I dream of sharing with people one day. He will be sadly missed, but on the positive side, he left a “musical legacy (or being part of one) behind and DIDN;T die ALONEl he had family and friends by his side.

    There was an epsidoe fronm “ALL In The Family: I remember from childhood called “Aunt Rose” where Edith goes to visit her Aunt Rose who died at the funeral home. Turns out, she was the ONLY one there to come pay her respects! Fiction, but a sad story anyway and very real for some people.

    My DREAM is to leave a LEGACY behind when it’s my turn with, friends and family by my side when it’s time to go. That’s the way I’d want to do it and then I can die knowing that I accomplished something no matter how fuckin long it took me. beause that’s how shitty life was. I hope I made a good point here that will open a few eyes, especailly after ther recent deaths of all these celebrities and most recently, Junior Seau (life’s to short to throw it away, don’t you think?)

    Sharing is caring and caring is sharing; living is giving and giving is living

    I grew up with the music of the Brothers Gibb…they each had a special quality that when fused was musical magic…beautiful harmonies…and the depth of the songs…though simple in their written form (to play)…but with the full orchestration and the 3 voices…unparralled beauty. A very touching tribute by Barry for his two brothers…Maurice who left us 9 years ago…and Robin recently. Thank you BG’s for the many lovely notes we have always to remind us of Great Music. ^/^
