David English claims sick singer wants to team up with his brother for a tour when he recovers
The Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb is set to hit the road with his brother Barry once he recovers from his recent illness, according to former record label boss David English.
Following a recent hospital visit, he said the singer was already looking at future tour plans despite the fact reports recently suggested he was battling liver cancer.
He told The Daily Mail:
Barry came out with it and said: ‘Look, why don’t we go on the road again?’ And Rob just grinned and said: ‘Great, when can we go?’
English added: “We said, ‘Well, we need to get you a bit stronger and better first, we will have to feed you up, none of this vegan nonsense with herbal tea.’ I think it was the best medicine we could have given him.”
The Bee Gees disbanded in 2003 after Gibb’s twin brother Maurice died from complications arising from a twisted intestine.
Gibb was forced to cancel scheduled live dates of his own because of stomach pains back in April.
Earlier this week the singer thanked fans for their concern over his health on his blog.
He said: “I have been very unwell and am now on the road to recovery, and your prayers and wishes are a great tonic to me. I believe because of you I will get well and my deepest love goes out to you all.”
