Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb is undergoing tests in a U.K. hospital for abdominal pain and inflammation of the colon. He was rushed there by ambulance on Thursday after complaining of pain.

There is also a Gibb family history of gastrointestinal problems. In 2003, Robin's twin brother Maurice died after suffering intestinal complications.
