Robin Hugh Gibb CBE (b. December 22, 1949) is a singer and songwriter. He was born in Douglas, Isle of Man, to English parents, the twin brother of Maurice Gibb (1949-2003), and younger brother to Barry. He is best known as a member of the singing/songwriting trio the Bee Gees. The trio got their start in Australia, and found major success when they returned to England. The Bee Gees became one of the most successful pop groups of all time.
Son of Barbara (née Pass) and Hugh Gibb, he grew up with his two brothers in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, England until the Gibbs moved to Redcliffe, Australia in 1958, shortly after the birth of Andy Gibb, youngest of the Gibb brothers. They settled in as they went to school at the local public school Humpybong State School. Their music careers began in Australia, and flourished when they returned to England in 1967 and were spotted by Robert Stigwood.
