Bee Gees - Sick Gibb Plotting Music Comeback

Sick Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb is eager to hit the road with his brother Barry when he overcomes his health battle, according to the star's former record company boss.
The veteran musician was hospitalised earlier this month (Nov11), just weeks after he was treated for abdominal pains and inflammation of the colon. A flurry of unsubstantiated reports subsequently suggested the star is battling liver cancer.
Gibb recently took to his blog to thank fans for their support, and his ex-label chief David English has now revealed the singer is already discussing his future musical plans.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "He's not very well, obviously. The whole family was there when I went to see him this week. The first thing I did was to give him a hug - carefully because he is quite frail. Though he is very, very thin, his mind is just as sharp as ever, as is his wonderful sense of humour. Barry and I were crying with laughter at the things he comes out with, as we always do with Rob.
"Barry came out with it and said: 'Look, why don't we go on the road again?' And Rob just grinned and said: 'Great, when can we go?'
"We said, 'Well, we need to get you a bit stronger and better first, we will have to feed you up, none of this vegan nonsense with herbal tea.' I think it was the best medicine we could have given him."
