Robin Gibb, Bee Gees Singer Undergoing Chemo, Still Battling Liver Cancer
When we last heard from ailing Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb, he was already planning his return to the stage, however it has now been revealed that the disco legend has opted to undergo an intense eight-week chemotherapy course, in an attempt to battle his life-threatening liver cancer.
The 62-year-old 'Stayin' Alive' singer was rushed to the hospital in November, but appeared to be making a quick recovery, thanks to some alternative remedies suggested by his wife, Dwina, a druid priestess.
However when he was unable to attend the launch of a charity event on Wednesday night (Jan. 18), his spokesman Mick Garbutt revealed that Gibb is undergoing chemo, and that he is still "very unwell."
"It is true to say he is very unwell, but he's an incredible man and enjoys lots of support from his close circle of friends and family, and particularly from his wife Dwina," Garbutt said. "He is receiving regular chemotherapy and fighting hard. He is also heading home to be with his family at every possible opportunity as that's where he feels comfortable, but the reality is that he is very unwell."
Despite the chemo, Gibb is still determined to to attend his classical debut, a concert performance of 'The Titanic Requiem,' which he composed with his son Robin-John, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ship's ill-fated launch.
"He's set himself a goal to be at the show on April 10 and everybody hopes he will," Garbutt continued. "He's very strong willed -- if anyone can beat this, it's Robin."
