Now he's fighting back with twigs and berries! http://www.ctv.ca/CT...in-gibb-120111/


I suppose that the usual physicians can't cure him, so he calls in the quacks.

Soon in this theater: The End.

So he's a teetotal vegan. And about to die aged 62. What does this tell us...?

Nice guy? Really? I was watching an interview of him about a year ago and he sounded pretentious and up himself. I dunno...

I think this was the interview here:

EDIT: There are 3 parts to it, I think.

I presume you meant to say that leading a healthy lifestyle is no guarantee of living to a ripe old age.

Regarding the above: heard an interesting story recently. The bloke killed in Kent in the storms earlier this month was a builder, driving his van. A tree fell on the van and killed him outright but his mate in the passenger seat survived because at the moment of impact of the tree his mate was bent down in his seat, ratching on the floor to retrieve the cigarette lighter he'd just dropped. HE LIVED BECAUSE HE IS A SMOKER!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Interesting how every news report on Gibb that comes in mentions his intestinal issues, but forgets about his liver cancer.

A possibility. Others would say he's in the first stage of grief.

He's the least musical Bee Gee and the one who hardly played an instrument on stage or record; how did he "compose" this classical master-work, by humming it to a piano player?

This burst of activity smacks of downloading the repertoire before he's downloaded for all time. And that note in the story about Gibb having surgery for the same complaint that saw off Maurice; don't recall that being the issue a few months back.

Quote from the daily fail mail

Speaking to The Mirror, a friend of the pop legend said: 'He’s very strong willed – if anyone can beat this it’s Robin.'

Not too sure why that paper would be quoting a rival paper.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
