Former Bee Gee Robin Gibb in Coma with Pneumonia
Robin Gibb in Coma: Is Bee Gees Star Dying?
Robin Gibb, formerly of the Bee Gees, is in a coma in a London hospital due to complications with pneumonia. Robin Gibb's illness forced him to miss the premiere of "The Titanic Requiem", his first classical piece.
Robin Gibb, 62, had survived colon cancer and a twisted intestine, which killed his brother Maurice in 2003.
Robin Gibb's website confirmed what was earlier just a rumor:
"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."
Robin, Barry, and Maurice Gibb formed the Bee Gees, whose Saturday Night Fever soundtrack catapulted them to global fame. Robin Gibb is the last surviving sibling from the Bee Gees.
