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.

  1. Lupe Says:

    You were the best. You had a lot to offer to the world and to your family. You never got over a broken heart. Rest in Peace

  2. Trella Bozeman Says:

    I love your music and you are ONE FINE HUNK, but I’m sorry your life was cut short and I know you are in a better place where you have no sadness, broken heart. You are loved by everyone. Love you always!!!

  3. Ramiro Perez Says:

    great artist and great brother

  4. Eljay Says:

    Me and my other two amigos blame one Victoria Principle, the “Mrs. Robinson” of the 80s, for everything bad that happened to you. What a sad, untimely, unnecessary death, and what a blow it was to your three brothers. There will never be a musical group with such great harmony and songwriting again, and you would naturally have stepped up when your brother Maurice passed away.

  10. Fromagirl Says:

    When i was younger i fell in love with you Andy. I seen you in concert before and i not only admired you for your talent and looks but you seemed so charming and down to earth. I was reading other stories on him they said he had such a low self asstem. I wish i could have met him and told him how wonderful he was and let him know so many loved him for who he was. When i heard he passed away i called a girlfriend of mine (she had a crush on him to) and we both cried. Andy will be forever missed and loved. I know he is in a better place and not fighting his demons anymore, although he left us much to soon. Thank you Andy for showing us gal’s what a real talented gentleman is! To Andy’s family thank you for sharing Andy with us and may god bless and keep you.

  15. Melinda Says:

    you was one fine and sexy man! God sure knew what he was doing when he created you…Andy, to this day I can’t seem to understand why you had a low self-esteem…you was GORGEOUS…love and miss ya loads!!!

  16. Suzi Says:

    Even today, after all of these years, I miss the smell of your hair, your wicked sense of humor, and even your hairy “ape arms”–oh Andy, wish you were here. You took the sun with you…I want it back…

  17. EveLoveKitten Says:

    I can’t say I blame anyone for his death.
    Cocaine is a selfish drug. I spent 14 years
    with a coke head who was handsome, wild and
    self serving. I do however recognize the deep
    love Andy had (and his brothers) for others and
    each other and the unique way they had to express it. THAT was to be envied. Andy you
    lived a full life enbracing it with both arms open
    and life is full of joys and sorrows we have
    to experince them all. You were a joy to behold.

    you will be missed

  57. Deborah Cristina Says:

    Unforgettable Andy! So special soul gone too soon… Tue only one therapy had to be’ tough love…

  58. 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.
