Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb will be honored at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral in September during a public memorial service.
His body will be laid to rest rest during a funeral near his home in Thame, Oxfordshire. His spirit will be remembered with music by the Bee Gees and Roy Orbison, along with his favorite hymns Jerusalem and I Vow to Thee My Country.
Robin-John Gibb, (His Son) has said that it was actually liver failure, not cancer, that caused his father’s demise. Gibb underwent a blood transfusion just before his death that gave him 12 more hours to live, as his son explained:
“He wanted to live. The last option was a blood transfusion, which gave him another 12 hours. My father always told us he wanted us to try everything, no matter how futile it may seem … We watched him go and told him we loved him.”
We will be thinking of friends and family on this sad day.
John Travolta is said to be deeply saddened by the death of Robin Gibb and released a statement that calls the musician one of the most “wonderful” people he’s ever met.
John had loads of respect for the Bee Gee since he and his brothers were responsible for the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever, the 1977 hit that put the star on the map.
John told sources:
“I thought Robin was one of the most wonderful people — gifted, generous, and a real friend to everyone he knew. And we’ll miss him.”
Thats so lovely!!

So over the weekend we reported about Robin Gibb had finally came out of his coma and now his family has talked out about what had happend.
An the said that it was much worse than every one was thinking the family said:
“He is fantastic at the moment. He is laughing, he is joking, he is really happy. He just wants to get out. He has been very naughty because he pulled his feeding tube out so the nurses will have to put it back in again but he wants ice cream…he wants all kinds of things. It’s good anyway. We played music to him for about ten days so we asked him if he wanted to listen to any more music and he said no – we’ve bombarded him with music for about 10 days. It was very interesting…”
Robin-John, his son said:
“He woke up while we were playing the track which is a movement from the [Titanic] Requiem we have just written. He is completely compos mentis now and the first thing he said to me was ‘Hi R-J, can you tell them my back hurts?’ so we got a nurse to turn him. We said we loved each other. Two days before that they said they’d thrown the kitchen sink at him, that it was time to make plans because he was in God’s hands and such but he beats the odds again and they gave him an under 10% survival chance and he has beaten the odds…he really is something else.”
Its such good news we are so happy for all the family we really hope he has a very speedy recovery from now on!
