Andy Gibb

gibb1March 5, 1958 – March, 10 1988

You would think being the younger brother of a world-famous singing trio would be the greatest.  And, to a point, you would be right. Andrew Roy Gibb enjoyed the coattails of his famous brothers (multi-Platinum Disco kings, The Bee Gees) and rode them to a pretty successful solo career of his own.  He scored a number of huge hits in the late 1970’s including “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” and “Shadow Dancing” and was able to work alongside his talented brothers. Of course, Andy also enjoyed cocaine.  You know things aren’t going to end well when you are asked to choose between drugs and Victoria Principal…and you choose drugs.  Well, Andy’s heart thought that was a bad choice, too, and gave out just five days after the singer’s 30th birthday.  He might not have died directly of an overdose, but years of abuse certainly didn’t help.
