Anyone looking for official info from Robin’s official website will be sadly disappointed.
An official response to the press reports was posted there but the site crashed soon afterwards due to the number of fans (yes, I was one of them!) hitting the site to read it!
Within the hour the site was replaced with a holding page which reads as follows:
Sadly the reports are true that Robin has contracted pneumonia and is in a coma. We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through.
This website is currently receiving an extraordinarily high volume of traffic and is temporarily unavailable. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Please visit Robin’s Facebook page during this time.
As frustrating as it is as fans all we can do is wait and hope for some good news.
All thoughts remain with the Gibb family.
