Bee Gee singer Robin Gibb awoke from his coma.
The 62-year-old singer went into a coma after he contracted a pneumonia.
According to Doug Wright, who spoke to the BBC. Gibb is able to nod and communicate with his family. Since he slipped into a coma, he family has been staying at his beside in a central London hospital.
When his wife Dwina played Roy Orbison’s 1962 song Crying, Gibb began to cry.
Famous brother, and fellow Bee Gee Barry Gibb has also been singing to his brother to try and bring Robin out of his bed.
Since Gibb’s health deteriorated, he has been getting thousands of Facebook comments to get well soon.
In early February Gibb had made a “spectacular” recovery and was expected to sing “Don’t Cry Alone” at Central Hall Westminster in London. Until last month is was thought that his cancer was in remission.
The group has been around for almost six decades and is know for pop hits like, “Stayin’ Alive,” “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Massachusetts,” and Words.
A family friend who spoke to The Sun said, “Our prayers are with Robin. He has kept so positive and always believed he could beat this.”
The friend continued, “If there is anyone you would put money on pulling through such a dire situation, it would be Robin because he is a fighter.”
Robin said to The Sun last month, “I sometimes wonder if all the tragedies my family has suffered, like Andy and Maurice dying so young and everything that’s happened to me recently, is a kind of karmic price we are paying for all the fame and fortune we’ve had.”
When he was in remission from his cancer he added, “I can’t wait to carry on with my work. I want all my fans to know their love helps me so much.”
