Robin Gibb would like to tour again with brother Barry, or so says former label exec and friend of the Bee Gees David English. As previously reported, Gibb is currently very ill with an unconfirmed condition, and has had a couple of hospital stints in recent weeks. However, English told the Daily Mail, he remains in good spirits, and responded eagerly to Barry Gibb’s proposal that they perform together again once he is fit again.

English told the tabloid: “He’s not very well, obviously. The whole family was there when I went to see him this week. The first thing I did was to give him a hug – carefully because he is quite frail. Though he is very, very thin, his mind is just as sharp as ever, as is his wonderful sense of humour. Barry and I were crying with laughter at the things he comes out with, as we always do with Rob”.

He continued: “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? 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”.
