Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees is battling liver cancer.  The 61-year old was rushed to the hospital last week with abdominal pains, and was treated for an inflamed and blocked colon, the same condition which killed brother Maurice.  Sources close to the singer say that his prognosis is 'not good'.  Photos taken recently show a very gaunt and underweight individual.

It's Robin's distinctive quavering vocal that defined early Bee Gees hits such as 'I Started A Joke',  'New York Mining Disaster 1941', and 'Massachusetts'.  Later in the band's career the lead vocal duties leaned toward brother Barry Gibb, who fueled the majority of the Bee Gees' huge disco flavored hits.

The family is reportedly exploring alternative therapies that might help him.  We wish him the very best.  See more on the story at my source,
