    Robin Gibb passed away on May 20 after a long battle with cancer, but the cancer did not kill him. Kidney and liver failure did.

    His son Robin-John told a British newspaper, "It wasn't the cancer that killed my father; those reports are wrong. Dad had actually gone into remission and the cancer was completely unrecognizable, it was too small to detect. No scan could see it. He actually died of kidney failure. It was a really sudden downturn." He had to take medicine to deal with a seizure and chemo and it took its toll on his other organs.

    R.I.P., Robin Gibb.
