Robin Gibb, one of the founding member of the Bee Gees, along with his brothers Barry and Maurice, has died of at age 62.
"The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery.
The singer, songwriter and disco icon waged a brave battle against colon and liver cancer.
In 2010 he underwent surgery to treat a twisted bowel, a congenital condition that killed his twin brother and fellow Bee Gee, Maurice, in 2003. In January of this year Robin's spokesman announced that doctors had found a growth in his colon but said the singer was responding well to treatment despite his shockingly thin appearance.
In an interview with BBC radio in early February, Gibb proclaimed that he had made a "spectacular recovery" from cancer. But he was back in the hospital in late March for intestinal surgery and forced to cancel all of his plans.
Gibb had been working on his first classical concert, ""The Titanic Requiem" with his son Robin-John to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disaster. Preparing for the concert, he said, distracted him from his "illness to such a degree that I truly believed it might have saved my life," according to the British newspaper, The Sun."
