Bee Gees Robin Gibb makes 'spectacular' recovery

Robin Gibb.jpgBee Gee Robin Gibb told BBC 2 radio that he's made a 'spectacular' recovery from a serious illness that was never confirmed but suspected to be cancer.

"Well, it's all simple," he told the station. "I was diagnosed with a growth in my colon. It was removed. And I've been treated for that by a brilliant doctor, and in their own words 'the results have been spectacular'." We're glad to hear it. This disco-era musician was reported by many publications to be close to death.

Gibbs responded, "I mean the fact is, I've never spoken to anybody about my condition or the condition that I was in and a lot of them go over the top to the point where they're telling me things that I didn't even know about myself. The prognosis is that it's almost gone and I feel fantastic and really from now on it's just what they could describe as a 'mopping-up' operation. I am very active and my sense of well-being is good."

Gibb has just finished recording his first ever classical work with son Robin-John called "The Titanic Requiem" which is due for release on March 19.
