Bee Gee 'delayed scans for tour'

Bee Gee Robin Gibb, who died from cancer in May, refused to visit doctors for scans that could have detected his illness because he wanted to go on a world tour, it has been reported.

Gibb, 62, died after a long battle with colon and liver cancer.

His widow Dwina Gibb, 59, told today's Daily Mail Weekend magazine that the music star initially ignored her pleas and doctors' advice to have the cancerous cells fully checked.

The illness was discovered in October 2010 when surgeons operated to remove an intestinal blockage.

Mrs Gibb said she and her son Robin John, 29, were unable to persuade him to drop his musical commitments.

She said: "He didn't want to stop and I said 'Please just have the scan'.

"Despite all his wonderful ways, Robin could be very stubborn and he never liked bad news - he just didn't want to know.

"He went to do a show in New Zealand as they'd just experienced an earthquake.

"Maybe it was very important for him to do that show, but it was still important for him to have his scans."

The songwriter toured for more than a fortnight during November that year and Mrs Gibb said the cancer had developed into a secondary stage. By the time he had a check up the tumour had spread to blood vessels.
