Robin Gibb, one of the two surviving members of the Bee Gees, has revealed that he is suffering from liver cancer. Though the singer was diagnosed several months ago, he was rushed to a hospital in England last week for emergency treatment. Gibb was released after five hours, saying in a statement that he was being treated for an inflammation of the colon.

Robin's twin brother and bandmate Maurice died in 2003 at the age of 53 of complications from a twisted small intestine, reported in his autopsy as a congenital condition. Robin received surgery for a similar blockage last year. He canceled a series of concert dates in Brazil earlier this year after being hospitalized again for abdominal pain.
