Founding Bee Gees member Robin Gibb recently had further surgery for his ongoing bout with liver cancer, Reuters reports. The surgery led the 62 year-old singer to cancel all commitments prior to the April 10th premiere of his classical work “The Titanic Requiem.”
Last November Gibb revealed his struggle with liver cancer, acknowledging that he was rushed to the hospital for treatment. While he was apparently recovering well from chemotherapy treatment, it appears the cancer has returned.
“The Titanic Requiem” finds Gibb ranging far from the disco grooves of the Bee Gees. The singer wrote the piece with his son Robin-John and will premiere it on April 10th at London’s Central Hall, Westminster. “Requiem” recognizes the 100th anniversary of the ship’s infamous sinking on April 15th, 1912.
