Ailing Bee Gees star Robin Gibb is aiming to recover from ill health in time to attend the unveiling of his World War II memorial in London this summer, according to his son.
The music legend, who has been battling colon and liver cancer, contracted pneumonia earlier this month and slipped into a coma for 12 days before regaining consciousness this week.
Gibb remains in hospital as doctors monitor his condition, but his son, Robin-John, has revealed the star is hoping to be back to full fitness in time for the June unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in London’s Green Park.
Robin-John tells Britain’s Sunday Express, “Dad, thank ­heavens, has awoken from a 12-day coma. He will do everything in his power to build himself up so he may attend the unveiling of the memorial, of which it was his greatest honour to be a part.”
Gibb was instrumental in the campaign to have the memorial built in honour of the aircrews of World War II.
The memorial will be unveiled on 28 June.
