    LEGENDARY MANAGER DIES

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Robert Stigwood, the famed music exec behind the Bee Gees, Cream and several huge movies and musicals ... has died.

    Stigwood was the agent and manger for the Bee Gees as well as rock legends Cream before he went on to form RSO (Robert Stigwood Organisation). RSO produced famous musicals like "Hair" and "Jesus Christ Superstar."

    His biggest success as a producer though would be the movies "Saturday Night Fever." Of course the soundtrack for that movie heavily featured the Bee Gees. He followed that up with the movie "Grease" in '78.

    Robin Gibb's son went on Facebook to thank Stigwood for giving the Bee Gees their huge break.

    Stigwood, a native Australian, was 81 years old. It's unclear, at this point, exactly how he died.

    Barry Gibb is outlasting everyone and anyone who had anything to do with the Bee Gees.

    I'm still trying to recover from the BeeGees and it's not going well. I hated 70s radio.

    What a fucking disaster!
    There was a bar I used to go to all the time when this pile of shit was in the theaters, and they played this soundtrack album over and over again.
    This and Steely Dan's Aja.
    :facepalm:
    The 70s were cool but also sucked a lot.

    It's unclear how he died? He was 81 for Christ's sake

    Probably going to turn out that he's been ripping off his lesser known client, the didgeridoo artist, who killed him.

    "Robin, I was thinking of calling Robert Stigwood or as he was known as Stiggy and apologize. Then Beth came in and told me she just saw on the news that he has died. She was inconsolable because last week Lemmy died and today Stiggy died and she is concerned that Laverne and Shirley must be devastated."

    Hold on here. Becker and Fagin were musical geniuses. Aja turned me on to some great jazz-rock fusion tunes. I even used to beat off to the mysterious Ching Chong Chick in shadows on the album cover.
