Sad news to pass along. Robin Gibb, one of the singers of the legendary pop outfit the Bee Gees, fell into a coma over the weekend. A statement on Gibb’s official website, RobinGibb.com, confirmed the news:
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.
Gibb has been battling colon and liver cancer since 2010, but back in February, it was announced that his cancer was in the remission phase. In a harrowing twist, the Toronto Star reported that he had been working on a “bucket list” when he developed pneumonia and slipped into a coma.
Everyone here at VH1 and VH1 Classic is pulling for Gibb to make a full recovery. We’ll keep you posted with any updates as we receive them.
