Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees has lost his long battle with liver and colon cancer and died today at the age of 62.
Gibb contracted pneumonia in mid-April and went into a coma at a hospital in London, not expected to recover. But he rallied back, seeming to make a miraculous recovery within a few short weeks.
A secondary tumor was reportedly discovered and the pneumonia caused further complications.
Maurice Gibb, Robin’s twin, died suddenly in 2003 at age 53 of a heart attack due to an intestinal complication, and younger brother, Andy, died of a heart ailment in 1988 at age 30.
Robin Gibb is survived by his wife and three children, and older brother Barry Gibb.
In a coincidental twist, an upcoming episode of the Fox television show, Glee, will include covers of Bee Gees’ hits from the popular 1970’s disco movie Saturday Night Fever.
The video that accompanies this story was a performance by Robin and Barry Gibb on American Idol in 2010.
