And for those movies, we have nothing but  disappointment and scorn.

R.I.P. Robin Gibb (1949-2012)

Robin Gibb R.I.P.

For the third time in less than a month, the music world has lost another legend to cancer. After the tragic deaths of Adam “MCA” Yauch and Donna Summer, Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb is the latest musician to succumb to the dreaded disease.

Gibb has been in ill health since being diagnosed with colon and liver cancer back in 2010, and he fell into a coma after contracting pneumonia last month. He eventually emerged from the coma, but his family released a statement to Rolling Stone this afternoon confirming that Robin had died:

“The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”

Bee Gees Singer Robin Gibb Falls Into A Coma

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.
