Bee Gees star Robin Gibb, who it has been revealed is suffering with cancer of the liver, has publically thanked his fans for their “love, kindness and support”.
In a blog post on his official site, www.robingibb.com, Robin wrote:
“I have been very unwell and am now on the road to recovery, and your prayers and wishes are a great tonic to me. I believe because of you I will get well and my deepest love goes out to you all.
“I wish to thank my family, friends and fans and the many thousands of people who do not know me but have enjoyed The Bee Gees' music and have wished me well,” he added. “I am very touched by your love, kindness and support. This concern from people all over the world has demonstrated the depth of feeling and love that The Bee Gees have achieved over the years. It is humbling and I take your prayers and good wishes for my health very seriously.”
With The Bee Gees, Robin enjoyed 17 Top 10 singles, five of which (‘Massachusets’, ‘I’ve Got To Get A Message To You’, ‘Night Fever’, ‘Tragedy’ and ‘You Win Again’) went to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart. See The Bee Gees’ Official Chart history here.
In September of this year, Robin recorded a version of ‘I’ve Gotta Get A Message To You’ with The Soldiers in aid of The Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal. You can watch an interview with the group taking about working with Robin below.
