Bee Gees guy, Robin Gibb, has been hospitalized after suffering a setback in his fight with cancer. The musical icon has been undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer for a few months now, but was admitted to a hospital in London this week. A rep for the musician has confirmed that the hospitalization is a routine part of his treatment. It is always devastating to see anyone, including such big a musical icon, go through the awful fight against cancer. Our thoughts are with you Robin.
The Bee Gees were a huge pop music success in the 60s and 70s, a part of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack with John Travolta, and were originally made up of three brothers, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t know their disco songs, Stayin’ Alive or Night Fever. They are the original disco men.
Sadly, Maurice died suddenly in 2003 and Barry and Robin ended the group after that. A few years ago, the remaining brothers performed in 2009 but soon after that Robin, who was in his early 60s was diagnosed with colon cancer and has been undergoing treatment ever since. Lets send our well wishes to Robin and his family. Our thoughts are with you!
As a tribute, their original Stayin’ Alive video. There is no one else quite like them…
