Bee Gee Robin Gibb told BBC 2 radio that he’s made a ‘spectacular’ recovery from a serious illness that was never confirmed but suspected to be cancer.
“Well, it’s all simple,” he told the station. “I was diagnosed with a
growth in my colon. It was removed. And I’ve been treated for that by a
brilliant doctor, and in their own words ‘the results have been
spectacular’.” We’re glad to hear it. This disco-era musician was reported by many publications to be close to death.
Gibbs responded, “I mean the fact is, I’ve never spoken to anybody
about my condition or the condition that I was in and a lot of them go
over the top to the point where they’re telling me things that I didn’t
even know about myself. The prognosis is that it’s almost gone and I
feel fantastic and really from now on it’s just what they could describe
as a ‘mopping-up’ operation. I am very active and my sense of
well-being is good.”
Gibb has just
finished recording his first ever classical work with son Robin-John
called “The Titanic Requiem” which is due for release on March 19.
