Lets hope Robin pulls through this!! - In my opinion the best voice of all the Gibb brothers.

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 on Saturday.

The UK's Sun newspaper says his family are 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 on Friday 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 were 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, 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 told The Sun.

Robin Gibb was born on the Isle of Man in the UK, half an hour before his twin brother Maurice.

In 1958, the family moved to Brisbane, where the twins formed the Bee Gees with their elder brother Barry.

They topped the Australian charts with Spicks and Specks and then moved back to England in 1967, where they recorded their first international hits, New York Mining Disaster 1941 and Massachusetts.

Robin left the Bee Gees in 1969 and began a solo career, achieving success with his first single, Saved By The Bell.

He reunited with his brothers in 1970.

In the late 70s, after a period of limited success, the brothers won lasting fame by writing the soundtrack to the movie Saturday Night Fever, including their huge international hit Stayin' Alive.

He is now out of the coma

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4272958/Robin-Gibbs-iron-will-stuns-docs-with-incredible-recovery.html

Quote:
Medics last night said Robin, 62, had overcome “incredible odds” after wife Dwina was told he had only days to live.

The singer — who has liver and colon cancer — fell into a coma last week after contracting pneumonia.

He was having trouble breathing and was put on a ventilator.

Robin has now staged a recovery and is breathing with an oxygen mask. He is fully conscious and has chats with relatives including brother Barry, 65.

Doctors hope to take him off oxygen and restore his swallowing so he can eat and drink.

Dr Andrew Thillainayagam, of Imperial College, London, said: “The prognosis was very grave. We felt it was very likely Robin would succumb to what seemed to be insurmountable obstacles.

“It is testament to Robin’s extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds.”

Robin’s family held a constant bedside vigil for him and played his favourite music to try to rouse him. Barry had also been singing to him.

Dr Thillainayagam praised Dwina and the couple’s children Robin-John, Spencer and Melissa for their “determination never to give up on him.”

He said: “The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being.”
