Who remembers hearing that Andy Gibb died? It happened many years ago. We were shocked to hear that Andy Gibb was dead at age 30:
“On March 7, 1988, Andy Gibb entered the hospital in Oxford, England, complaining of severe chest and abdominal pains.
On March 10, he died of inflammation of the heart, officially as a result of a viral infection. ”
Andy was only 19 when hit the music charts in 1977 with “I just want to be your everything”, a song written and produced by his older brother Barry Gibb.
Andy Gibb was on the pop charts for the next 3 years with huge hits like “Shadow Dancing”, “Everlasting love” & “Don’t throw it all away”, “Desire” and “I can’t help it”, a duet with Olivia Newton-John.
His songs were composed by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb, his very famous older brothers. Yet, he was never a part of The Bee Gees although he did tour with them in 1979.
His career faded in the 1980′s and Andy faced several addiction problems. His death was a shock and a reminder that drugs will kill you.
