Symbolic news. Via some music site:
The Bee Gees' Robin Gibb has woken from a coma after more than a week and has begun to show signs of recovery.
The 62-year-old fell into a coma last week after contracting pneumonia due to complications arising from his battle with colon and liver cancer.
However, last night his spokesman Doug Wright confirmed that he had woken and was able to communicate with his family, who have been at his bedside at a London hospital.
