Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb’s health is in serious condition. Robin’s official website was updated with the following message:
Sadly the reports are true that Robin has contracted pneumonia and is in a coma. We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through.
This website is currently receiving an extraordinarily high volume of traffic and is temporarily unavailable. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Please visit Robin’s Facebook page during this time.
Robin’s son, Robin-John said, “My dad has had a hard recovery from cancer. When you get rid of the cancer a lot of periphery problems can occur. This is so sad.”
People magazine has more details:
In October 2011, the singer, who is 62, fell ill with intestinal problems. He was later diagnosed with liver and colon cancer, but had made a recovery. On Friday, however, it was reported that he’d been hospitalized again.
Robin’s twin Maurice, who was also a founding member of the hit group, died of intestinal complications in 2003.
Let’s hope that Robin has a speedy recovery and all is well with him. Our fingers are crossed and we’re sending the Gibb family are thoughts and prayers.
