Robin Gibb Liver Cancer - Robin Gibb, member of the writing, singing, producing trio the Bee Gees, has liver cancer, a family friend said.

“Robin is not good and there is a lot of concern for him,” said a friend wishing to remain anonymous.

“There is frustration because Robin has always looked after himself. He doesn’t drink, eats well and exercises daily,” Britain’s The Sunday Mirror reported the friend said.

Gibb, 61, was diagnosed months ago and was rushed from his home in Thame, Oxfordshire, to John Radcliffe Hospital where he was treated for abdominal pain and inflammation of the colon, Gibb’s Web site said.

He looked frail when making an appearance on Britain’s “The Alan Titchmarsh Show,” and spoke of being reunited with his late brother and fellow Bee Gee, Maurice, who died at 53 in 2003 of cardiac arrest prior to emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage, onTheRedCarpet.com reported.

“I just imagine he is out there somewhere and I will bump into him one day,” Britain’s The Sunday Telegraph reported Gibb as saying.

Andy Gibb, the youngest of the siblings and not a member of the Bee Gees but a successful solo artist, was 30 when he died in 1988 following years of alcohol and cocaine abuse.

Barry Gibb, his wife, Linda and the brothers’ mother, Barbara have flown from their homes in Miami, Fla., back to Britain to be with Robin and his wife, Dwina, The Sunday Mirror reported.
