Andy GibbAndy Gibb (5 March, 1958 - 10 March, 1988) was a British singer, the younger brother of Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.
He was born Andrew Roy Gibb in Manchester, England, and began performing while still a child. The idea of his joining the Bee Gees was often mooted, but the age gap between him and his elder brothers made this difficult to achieve. Instead, he embarked on a successful solo career.
In 1976, he married his girlfriend, Kim, in Sydney, Australia. They had one child before he left her in 1978, his work and family commitments having come between them. In 1977, he had his first major hit, "I Just Want to Be Your Everything", a song written by his brothers. He soon followed it up with "Shadow Dancing", and for a brief period was one of the world's top pop stars, achieving almost immediate success in both the USA and UK. After a brief affair with the actress Victoria Principal, his career began to wane, and the use of drugs took its toll on his health. He died at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England, of heart failure.
