Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb died Sunday at the age of 62, reports The New York Times. The cause of death was given as complications from cancer and intestinal surgery.

Gibb had been in the hospital for intestinal problems during the past two years, with colon cancer spreading to his liver, the story notes.

He’s the second Bee Gee and third Gibb brother to die, with his fraternal twin and fellow Bee Gee, Maurice Gibb, dying from complications from a twisted intestine in 2003. Their youngest brother, Andy, died in 1988 of heart failure at the age of 30.

The Bee Gees sold more than 100 million albums and became part of the sound of the disco era, with many of their hits showcased in the film "Saturday Night Fever," including iconic songs such as "Stayin’ Alive," the story notes.
