Cancer takes its second disco icon in less than a week.

Article and photos

I came of age during the disco backlash, and hatred for "Staying Alive" was at its peak. My enjoyment for the Bee Gees came much later as an adult. I have a great appreciation for their early work ("I Started A Joke", "Massachusetts") through their Saturday Night Fever work, and their later post-disco pop tunes such as "One", "You Win Again" and "This Is Where I Came In" are among my favourite "sing while I drive" songs.

Sad news, but certainly not unexpected.

I discovered their non-disco work via Moxy Fruvous who covered "Got To get A Message To You. ("

WOw...Moxy got me through high school. I still love them to this day.

I consider Saturday Night Fever to be one of the greatest albums of all time and it has a permanent location in my MP3 player and iPhone.

Between Robin and Donna passing, Heaven just got a bit funkier.

...on a roll!

I was into the Bee Gees before the disco days...Bee Gees Gold was possibly my favorite of my Dad's eight-tracks, and I later bought and enjoyed Main Course, their first disco album, more or less. Somewhere after SNF I got turned off of the disco stuff, mostly because I became a total AOR-head for a while, but I always really loved the early stuff.

They did a good A&E concert special a number of years ago, and I resolved to take my Dad to see them on the ensuing concert tour...but Maurice's health problems meant the tour never happened. One of the few artists that I really would have liked to see and didn't (other than those who, like Buddy Holly, died before I was born, or, like John Lennon, stopped doing concerts when I was a kid).

Moby's Hotel Sampler The iTMS has seven minutes from Moby's upcoming album Hotel. Maybe I'm just getting older, but it seems like the more Moby broadens his horizons, the less interested I am in his product.
