Andy Gibb

Born: 1958-03-05 - Died: 1988-03-10
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Andrew “Andy” Roy Gibb had been working on a new album in London. He began having some chest pains, so he went to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. He died shortly after that on March 10, 1988 from myocarditis (inflammation of the heart). His long addiction to cocaine had apparently weakened his heart.

Gibb died just five days after his 30th birthday.

Who was Andy Gibb : Gibb was a teen idol the youngest brother of Barry, Robin, and Maurice…more commonly known as the Bee Gees.

Gibb became the first male solo artist to have three consecutive number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. The first of his hits was the song “I Just Want to Be Your Everything”.

The pressures of the industry led Gibb to drugs, which are credited for the decline of his career.

In the mid 1980s, Gibb’s family convinced him to seek help, so he checked into the Betty Ford Clinic (named after the former first lady and wife of Gerald Ford).

After his stint in rehab he guest starred on a few comedy shows (Gimme A Break! And Punky Brewster). His performances showed his fans, and himself, that he was finally clean.

With his new lifestyle, his career never got back to where it once was. Gibb had to declare bankruptcy, as his debts far outweighed his income.

  8. Holly Sanborn Says:

    I had the biggest crush on you when I was in my teens,(14 to be exact). It was my first ever crush. There are times when I’m listening to these great songs of old, I find myself thinking about you, and how much emotional pain you must have been in right at the end. You were one of the best, cut down in what should have been the prime of your life.
    Hopefully you have found the peace you searched for in this earthly realm we all must go through.
    Maybe we will still meet each other on the great judgement day.At least now you and Robin and Maurice are singing for our heavenly father.
    Rest in peace, Andy. Your fans still love you, and you are missed a great deal by us all.
    You are still great, in my eyes, anyway.
    I love you, my friend.
