Funeral of Bee Gees star Robin Gibb set for June 8

LONDON (AFP) - The funeral of Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb will take place on June 8, the late star's spokesman said on Wednesday. Gibb, singer with one of the biggest-selling groups of all time and a key figure in the breakthrough of disco, died on May 20 aged 62, having lost his battle against cancer. Gibb had been in remission earlier this year but was hospitalised in April and then fell into a coma after contracting pneumonia. Though he woke up again on April 20, he had advanced colorectal cancer and finally succumbed to his illness. The funeral will take place in Britain and will be a 'private service for close family and friends', spokesman Doug Wright said.
