Titanic tune rouses comatose Bee Gee Robin

The sounds of his new classical work based on the Titanic have roused former Bee Gee star Robin Gibb out of his coma, according to his son.

The 62-year-old slipped into unconsciousness earlier this month but when he heard the strains of his new composition, Titanic Requiem, Robin began to rouse.

Son Robin-John, who co-wrote the classical piece, told the Daily Mirror: “He woke up while we were playing a movement from the requiem we have just written.”

Gibb was due to attend the April 10 red carpet premiere of the score written in honour of the Belfast ship’s centenary when he fell ill.
