Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has passed away today aged 62.


The musician died after undergoing intestinal surgery and due to his long battle with cancer.


Last month Robin's wife spoke of her joy after the Bee Gee star woke from a 12-day coma despite being given just a 10 per cent chance of survival by doctors.


Dwina Gibb, 59, had been told to start making plans for the musician's passing as he slumped into a coma after contracting pneumonia.


However, the 62-year-old multi-millionairedefied the odds and regained consciousness as music from his Titanic Requiem played.


Mrs Gibb and her family had held a constant bedside vigil for the star - and had been playing his favourite music to try and rouse him.


And she revealed that he cried when she played him Roy Orbison's 1962 song Crying.


Robin was born in the Isle of Man in 1949.


The third eldest of five he went on to form the Bee Gees with his twin brother Maurice and his older brother Berry.



Hitmakers: Robin was part of one of the biggest groups of all time the Bee Gees with his brother Maurice, who passed away in 2003 and Barry who is now the only surviving member of the band

The group became one of the most successful pop acts of all time with estimated record sales of more than 100million.


His twin brother died in 2003 and the group subsequently disbanded.


Gibb leaves behind wife Dwina and their son, Robin-John, 29.


He also has two other children, Spencer, 39, and Melissa, 37, from his marriage to Molly Hullis.
