Optimistic news! After a week in a deep coma, brought on by a battle with pneumonia, ROBIN GIBB's spokesman DOUG WRIGHT said that on SATURDAY (4/21) GIBB had come out of the coma and has been able to nod and communicate with his family members, including wife DWINA and brother BARRY, daughter MELISSA, and sons SPENCER, and ROBIN-JOHN, who have been holding vigil at a central LONDON hospital since last week.
GIBB had been hospitalized as recently as last month for intestinal surgery that caused him to miss the LONDON premiere of his classical "Titanic Requiem." And he'd been hospitalized last year for stomach and colon problems, which was later confirmed to be colon cancer that had spread to his liver. GIBB had recently announced that he was in remission.
