Robin Hugh Gibb was born in a maternity home in the Isle of Man, England, on December 22, 1949. His parents are Hugh Gibb and Barbara Gibb, and he had an older fraternal twin brother named Maurice Gibb, who was born 35 minutes ahead of him.

Gibb, as a solo artist, was a success, and he released songs in the UK. Later in 1970, Bees Gees announced their comeback, and they recorded a song entitled “Lonely Days” that became a top hit in the US Billboard.
