Robin Gibb - Sick Robin Gibb Appears Frail On U.k. Tv
Ailing star Robin Gibb proved his devotion to Britain's armed forces on Monday (24Oct11) by leaving his sick bed to perform with soldiers on U.K. TV.
The Bee Gees legend was hospitalised in Oxford, England earlier this month (13Oct11) after suffering acute abdominal pains, caused by inflammation of the colon.
He was discharged last week (ends23Oct11) and the singer honoured his commitments by turning up for an appearance on The Alan Titchmarsh Show to promote I've Gotta Get a Message to You, the charity single he has recorded to raise money for troops.
Gibb stunned viewers with his gaunt appearance, but declined to answer questions about his health during an interview with presenter Titchmarsh.
Discussing the track, Gibb told the host, "It's an emotional appeal because when your back is against the wall, human beings tend to think about those things that are most important - home, kids and life in general, and girlfriends...
"That's why it was so important for me to do everything possible to support this record."
The 61-year-old star then performed the tune with singing trio The Soldiers, a British band comprised of Corporal Ryan Idzi, Sergeant Major Gary Chilton and Sergeant Richie Maddocks.
