Robin Gibb one of the original members of the popular music group the Bee Gees has died at the age of 62 after a long bout with cancer. Robin Gibbs family released the following statement today
"Sunday 20 May, 2012 at 10:46: 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.”
Robin Gibb’s family is asking for privacy during this very difficult time. The disco icon Gibb waged a brave battle against colon and liver cancer. You may recall back in 2010 he underwent surgery to treat a twisted bowel, a congenital condition that killed his twin brother and fellow Bee Gee, Maurice, in 2003.
Word is the family is planning a private funeral but may hold a public memorial for all of Gibbs fan’s. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gibb’s friend and family in this difficult time.
