LONDON, June 7 (UPI) -- A horse-drawn carriage is to carry the body of British pop music icon Robin Gibb through his hometown of Thame Friday, his family said.

The Bee Gees star died of complications of cancer last month. He was 62.

The BBC said Gibb's casket will be carried through town before a private family service at St. Mary's Church.

The Bee Gees hit "I Started a Joke" and Gibb's latest composition "Don't Cry Alone" will be played at his funeral, his son R.J. told the British broadcaster.
