RIP, Robin

This is the second 70s music icon to die in the past week.

I know the BeeGees actually got their start in the 60s, but I think "Saturday Night Fever" was what catapulted them to Hall of Fame material.
Don not wait to. There was not the shadow of the wall and another shade of eye gaze, we don not go Nvragr not find the light went shadow Nnvr.

My thought exactly...first Donna Summer and now Robin Gibb who's next??

Rest....

Some of the best Disco is good; Donna Summer, Bee Gees, ABBA, etc.

Especially compared to much of what comes out these days.

It's not that disco music was bad. In fact, it was the epitome of good pop: in the words of the late Dick Clark, "it's got a good beat and you can dance to it."

What ticked people off was the disco culture. Drugs (but curiously no alcohol), hedonism, gay overtones, and the like. That's why they rounded up every disco album they could find and blew a hole in Comiskey Park in 1979, and why disco as a word didn't survive much longer. It eventually survived as "dance music," but the word "disco" became a dirty word.

I should explain....

WMMR FM in Philadelphia used to run a schtick during the day called "Driving the nails into the coffin of Disco".  People called in to request their least favorite disco tune and whatever the consensus was got a 30 second play on the air before the DJ destroyed it....

The Bee Gees were one of the most frequently requested bands, and quite a few of their tunes were used as nails....

Just sayin'......not really mocking the dead.....

Dead and a foreigner. A double whammy.
