Founding member of the Bee Gees, Robin Gibb, has lost his battle with cancer.

The disco-era superstar died Sunday.

Gibb, along with his brothers Barry and Maurice, founded the hugely popular band that became a staple of dance floors worldwide after their best-selling soundtrack to the movie "Saturday Night Fever".

The group sold more than 200 million records.

"Definitely the end of a legend, the last of a long line, very talented family. I loved his voice particularly so yeah sad to hear it," said one New Yorker.

The legacy of the Bee Gees will certainly endure, there is no doubt about that," said another New Yorker.

Born in England and raised in Australia, Gibb also worked as a solo artist and as a songwriter.

Robin Gibb was 62.

He leaves behind a wife, daughter and two sons.
