Robin Gibb

In a Coma, Battling Pneumonia

4/14/2012 4:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb
Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb is in a coma and his family has gathered by his bedside amid fears he only has days to live ... this according to a new report. 

Gibb has been battling colon and liver cancer and is now suffering from pneumonia, says The Sun. 

The paper says the 62-year-old's family has gathered for a bedside vigil.

A family friend told the paper, "If there is anyone you would put money on pulling through such a dire situation, it would be Robin because he is a fighter. But this is a battle he will struggle to win."

Gibb has been battling cancer since 2010 and had surgery to treat a twisted bowel -- the condition that killed his twin brother Maurice nine years ago.

I met him (and his brothers) back in the eighties. He is the nicest man!! Very down to earth and very funny! The talent they all have is incredible. I pray he makes it through this and heartfelt prayers to the family.

Why isnt this a top story TMZ? Its obvious this man is in the last stages of his life and was part of one of the greatest trios in the Disco era of the seventies, along with the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever!

------------------------------------------------------------Robin misses his brother and twin
Together they were born-the fans they did win,
Heaven called one then he whispered for him
Light from above as his time on Earth dims.

Boy, the BeeGee's really have had bad luck health wise. Two brothers died young and a third seems ready to join them. I know 60s isn't super young, but anything short of your mid-70s (if not 80s) is too young.
