Robin Gibb, in 1970
Robin Gibb of the iconic group the Bee Gees is in grave condition.
"Sadly the reports are true that Robin has contracted pneumonia and is in a coma," reads a statement on his website
"We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through."
The singer's son Robin-John, told the Daily Mail
, "My dad has had a hard recovery from cancer. When you get rid of the cancer a lot of periphery problems can occur. This is so sad."
In October 2011, the singer, who is 62, fell ill with intestinal problems
. He was later diagnosed with liver and colon cancer, but had made a recovery. On Friday, however, it was reported that he'd been hospitalized again.
Robin's twin Maurice, who was also a founding member of the hit group, died of intestinal complications
