Robin Gibb Beegees In COMA and Dying - Death is Nearing

Report by JENIFERLAMUG

Robin Gibb, the former Bee Gee singer is gravely ill of pneumonia and is now in a coma at a London Hospital. Staying beside him are his wife Dwina and brother Barry. His son Robin-John Gibb said all the family members are praying for his speedy recovery, the Associated Press reported.

The 62-year-old musician was reportedly hospitalized for a stomach illness last year. According to BBC, the doctors removed a growth in his colon. Last week, Mr. Gibb was not able to attend the London premiere of his classical "Titanic Requiem" as he just had an intestinal surgery last month.

The Bee Gees are a musical group which originally comprised three brothers: Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, shot to fame starting from 1960s. They were included in the list of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with seven Grammy awards under their belts. They were British-born but was raised in Australia.

Some of their famous hits include “How Deep is Your Love,” “Stayin’ Alive” and “Saturday Night Fever.”

A statement in Mr. Gibb’s official website on Saturday said "we are all hoping and praying that he will pull through."
