Blue plaque unveiled for musician Robin Gibb

A blue plaque was recently unveiled at the Oxfordshire 'home of Robin Gibb ('1949-2012'). Singer and musician Gibb, who passed away on 20 May and was laid to rest on 8 June, 2012, 'was a member of Bee Gees band whose popularity in the English-using world,'including a segment of Malaysia and Singapore, endured for 40 years since its 1958 debut. Good old English songs and music have doubtlessly contributed to the making of the multicultural landscape'in Malaysia and preservation of the English language among folk of all races, 'beliefs and also classes.
