Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb won't be able to perform at The Titanic Requiem as he had previously planned. It seems he is far too ill to do so. He has been hospitalized off and on for the past few months from an undisclosed illness.
According to a report from PerezHilton.com, rumors have flown about Gibb's health, diagnosing him with everything from liver cancer to an intestinal obstruction. His twin brother Maurice Gibb died of a twisted intestine--a congenital defect--at the age of 53. Now it's suspected he might have pneumonia, which definitely wouldn't be a good sign.
Gibb was supposed to perform an original song at The Titanic Requiem in London, called Don't Cry Alone. The song is his first classical composition. Son Robin-John Gibb appeared at the event in his father's place and made the following statement.
"He sends all his love ... We are all praying for him and hoping he has a speedy recovery," he said.
Robin Gibb, along with brothers Barry and Maurice formed the singing group the Bee Gees in the 1960s, and had numerous hits throughout the years. How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, To Love Somebody and Stayin' Alive comprise only the tip of the proverbial musical iceberg for this dynamic Australian group.
Hopefully Robin Gibb will put all of the aforementioned rumors to rest and pull through this latest health challenge with flying colors. In the meantime there are no doubt countless prayers being said for the Bee Gees singer.
