Robin Gibb, who along with his brothers Maurice and Barry made up the Bee Gees, has died at age 62, according to a statement from his spokesperson which cited Gibb’s “long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery.” Gibb reportedly spent a week in a coma last month, after announcing he’d been fighting colon and liver cancer in an article in the London newspaper the Daily Mail.
Maurice, Robin’s fraternal twin, died at age 53
of complications due to a twisted intestine. Andy Gibb, the musical
family’s youngest brother and solo artist, died of heart failure in 1988
at age 30.
