Robin Gibb

This is certainly something to sing about!

Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb told BBC Radio 2 on Friday that he has made a "spectacular" recovery from a serious illness. (This past November, after a slew of health scares—including emergency gastro-intestinal surgery in August 2010—reports surfaced that the "Stayin' Alive" singer had been diagnosed with liver cancer.)

So what explains the 62-year-old's return to good health?

"Well, it's all simple," he explained. "I was diagnosed with a growth in my colon. It was removed. And I've been treated for that by a brilliant doctor, and in their words 'the results have been spectacular.'"

The musician isn't really sure why reports about his well-being were so exaggerated. "I mean the fact is, I've never spoken to anybody about my condition or the condition that I was in, and a lot of them go over the point to where they're telling me things that I didn't even know about myself," he said.

As for his prognosis? "[The growth in my colon] is almost gone and I feel fantastic," he said. "Really from now on, it's just what they could describe as a 'mopping-up' operation. I am very active and my sense of well-being is good."

Glad to hear he's on the mend!
