Some of Robin Gibb's many acheivements.

A lot of Australian Music Legends' followers have been genuinely concerned about Robin Gibb's health. While I've been looking around for any news of Robin, I was impressed by his acheivements.
According to Wikipedia, Robin Gibb, alongside his successful music career, has won the following awards;

In 1994, Robin Gibb was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 1997 the Bee Gees were inducted as a group into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Robin was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2001/2002 New Year's Honours List, along with his brothers Maurice and Barry. The official presentation ceremony at Buckingham Palace was delayed until 2004 owing to Maurice's death. In 2005, Gibb received the Steiger Award (Germany) for accomplishments in the arts.
Robin and Barry Gibb both received Honorary Degrees of Doctor of Music from The University of Manchester in May 2004.
On 10 July 2009, both Robin and Barry were made Freemen of the Borough of Douglas. The award was also bestowed posthumously on Maurice, therefore confirming the freedom of the town of their birth to all three brothers.

I also found this video, which I like, because it's not only a great song, but a great montage of photographs.
