Unhappy Bee Gees' Robin Gibb in coma, gravely ill

Bee Gees' Robin Gibb in coma, gravely ill

April 14, 2012

Bee Gees pop star Robin Gibb is in a coma in a London hospital, amid fears he has only days to live, according to reports.

Britain's The Sun newspaper says his family is keeping a bedside vigil for the 62-year-old star, who has been battling colon and liver cancer and now has pneumonia.

It is reported that family and fans of the Bee Gees were last night praying for the star's survival.

On Thursday Gibb's son said the singer would not be able to attend the premiere of their debut classical work, The Titanic Requiem.

Robin-John (RJ) Gibb, who worked on The Titanic Requiem with his father, said his family was hoping for "a speedy recovery".

"He is still in hospital, he's fighting infection and of course - as a lot of people who have family members or friends who endure cancer, they know - there are a lot of periphery problems afterwards they have to deal with," he told BBC Breakfast.

Ongoing health problems forced Gibb to miss the premiere of the Titanic work - to mark the centenary of the ship's ill-fated voyage - at London's Westminster City Hall.

"The one place he really wanted to be in two and and a half years and he couldn't be, and it was heartbreaking, but he'll be able to see it. It was recorded and live streamed," RJ said.

Gibb recently underwent surgery for an ongoing problem with a twisted bowel. The same hereditary intestinal condition led to the death of his twin brother, Maurice, at the age of 53.

Gibb appeared to have made a miracle recovery, but doctors now believe a secondary tumour is present.

Gibb's wife, Dwina, brother Barry, 65, daughter Melissa, 37, and sons Spencer, 39, and RJ, 29, were at his bedside in a private hospital in Chelsea in west London, according to The Sun.

Gibb's health problems began last October when he had emergency surgery to treat a blocked bowel.

Last month Gibb told The Sun: "I sometimes wonder if all the tragedies my family has suffered - like Andy and Maurice dying so young and everything that's happened to me recently - is a kind of karmic price we are paying for all the fame and fortune we've had."

Gibb also praised his wife, who has helped him fight his cancer fight.

She gave me health foods and brewed herb teas for me, alongside conventional treatment," he said.

This is not good.

Did I hear this right: Barbara Gibb, their mother, is still alive? It was in another thread.

Unhappy

Yes, Barbara Gibb is still alive (she's 91 - the Gibb patriarch, Hugh, died in 1992). I can't even imagine how she is feeling right now. She's already buried two sons and barring a miracle, might be doing it again soon...

All love and prayers to the Gibb family...I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of their music, ALL of it...Godspeed to Robin...

I hope that Robin will make a recovery. Its a shame that so much tragedy has hit one family. Though in the case of Andy if he had stayed away from drugs he would probably not have died.

I saw a photo of him in one of those tabloid papers recently and his face looked very thin. And he's certainly not old.

Here's one of Robin's finest vocal performances, from 1968:

Oh No

I wonder how Barry will thrive after the other Gibb Brothers are gone?

Here are a few of Robin's solo performances from 1982-83 - all the songs came from his 1982 solo album How Old Are You?. With his hair here blond and kind of shaggy, he looks an awful lot like Andy.

Although you're right that Andy would probably still be alive if he had managed to stay away from drugs, it wasn't drugs that directly killed him in the end. He'd finally managed to kick his drug habit and had been clean for over a year before he died. What killed him was a chest infection, viral myocarditis, but his heart had probably been weakened due to his drug use, and it would be probably be fair to say that it was an indirect cause. I just wanted to clarify that, because at the time he died, there were a lot of false stories going around about how he'd died of a massive drug overdose.

I'm a huge fan of the Bee Gees and am very sad about this. I'm hoping for something miraculous, but it doesn't look good.
