Last week Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees slipped into a coma that doctors feared he might never wake up from. But while Gibb's health remains precarious, his condition has improved somewhat, according to reports. The 62-year-old singer is now conscious and able to communicate, though he is "exhausted, extremely weak, and malnourished." Gibb, who is being treated for colorectal cancer, fell into the coma after coming down with pneumonia. He is now breathing with the help of an oxygen mask and being fed intravenously. [via Billboard]
