TRAGEDY: Two 70s Stars Gone Within A Week

This portal features many great singers and musicians who had passed on. But to have two music greats leaving the pop world within a week is something of a tragedy. I featured both at the side-bar during the week they passed away but someone wrote in to comment that they deserve a posting on this blog. So here they are again. Don't forget, they would've been featured in thousands of other websites and personal blogs.  But here goes. Tribute to two great 70s music people.

LaDonna Adrian Gaines (December 31, 1948 – May 17, 2012), known by the stage name Donna Summer, American singer and songwriter who gained prominence during the disco era of the late 1970s.
Robin Hugh Gibb, CBE (22 December 1949 – 20 May 2012) singer and songwriter, best known as a member of the Bee Gees, co-founded with his fraternal twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry. Their late younger brother Andy was also a singer. For Robin it wasn't the First of May but the 20th.

They both had one factor in common. Promoted disco music!

When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no one to love you, you're going nowhere

When you lose control and you got no soul
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and your heart goes by
It's hard to bear
With no one beside you, you're going nowhere

I feel depressed knowing that real music is becoming scarce as time goes by. Nowadays music is horrible. RIP and thank you for the great gift you have given the world.

Very sad myself that the two singing sensations (Donna Summer & Robin Gibb) from our era have gone too soon. Donna was very popular during the 70s. I remember there was a popular program on TV called "Solid Gold" and her songs were also featured. I watched "Solid Gold" without fail every Monday's evening in the early 80s. Robin was a member of the Bee Gees.Also, feel sorry for the Gibb family, first Andy, Maurice and now Robin.
