Spencer Gibb, the son of Bee Gee Robin Gibb, confirmed the news on Facebook.
“I would like to thank Robert for his kindness to me over the years as well as his mentorship to my family. ‘Stiggy,’ you will be missed,” he wrote.
Born in Australia, Stigwood moved to England and launched a theatrical management agency, soon turning to music. He managed hit bands Cream and the Bee Gees during the late 1960s and early ’70s, and then started producing for Broadway.
“Jesus Christ Superstar,” the first show from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, was a huge Broadway hit in 1971. He also produced the 1973 film version. The vogue for “rock operas” continued with the 1975 film “Tommy,

Over the last 12 years, since he first stepped onto the Studio 8H stage as host in 2003, Timberlake’s become a staple on the sketch show. In fact, his contributions to SNL history have been so memorable that the series is dedicating six hours tonight to reairing his episodes on VH1 Classic as part of the “SNL Rewind: 2015-1975 Mega Marathon” happening right now. But before you change the channel and spend of the rest of your day bingewatching Jt, here’s the cliff notes version, i.e. his 10 greatest moments on Saturday Night Live.
“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I
And although Tara unfortunately couldn't impress Kylie Minogue, her idol Tom Jones or any of the other coaches at the Blind Auditions, the sight of 'Nessa' singing has stuck with us and got us thinking about all the great musical interludes that cropped up during James Corden and Ruth Jones's classic BBC sitcom.

The pair have formed a top notch repartee over the year, one that dates back to their still spectacular turns as Barry and Robin Gibb on SNL's "The Barry Gibb Talk Show" sketch. Timberlake has also been
Today, Ginger Baker is probably responsible for more curled toes and tightened sphincters than anyone else alive. His Q&A with Michael Hann at the Curzon Soho is a masterclass in awkwardness. Questions are shot down. Pauses are left hanging in the air. Baker haughtily surveys the scene like a bilious animatronic skeksis. By all accounts, it ranks as one of the most excruciating interviews in recent memory.
That said, there's plenty of competition. YouTube is stuffed with painful interviews featuring monosyllabic subjects, oblivious interviewees or – in some cases – both. Here are some of my favourites.
