Robin Gibb out of coma, has colorectal cancer

– Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has advanced colorectal cancer and remains in intensive care after waking from a coma, his doctor said Sunday. The statement confirmed the exact nature of the illness afflicting the artist.

Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam said Gibb had recently caught pneumonia because he was weakened from chemotherapy and two operations.

The 62-year-old singer fell into a coma last week after contracting the pneumonia. Thillainayagam said that three days ago he had warned Gibb’s family that he may not wake up. Instead, Gibb is now fully conscious and able to speak.

Thillainayagam said Gibb is still in intensive care. He is breathing with the help of an oxygen mask and needs intravenous feeding and antibiotics.

The Bee Gees – British-born, Australian-raised brothers Robin, Barry and Maurice Gibb – had a string of disco-era hits including “How Deep is Your Love” and “Stayin’ Alive.”
