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.

A beautiful voice that will never be copied. Hopefully Robin will once again see his Dad, Maurice and Andy.

This is confirmed by the famiy as being real? Im guessing his appearance at the 100th Anniversary Titanic Concert of his and his sons album is cancelled then.

Hope he gets well, was hoping for more Bee Gees material post Maurice death. this sux.

I'm sure he's battling something but there's no chance it's pneumonia. Maybe a bucket of *******.

How sad to read that he is close to death. With his health conditions being what they are I'm surprised that he has been able to battle it for this long.

My heart is sad for all the family and fans alike. Their music was such a big part of my youth in the 70's and 80's. Their music helped me through bad times and their music made being in love better.
