Andy Gibb

About Andy Gibb

Andy Gibb was an English singer, songwriter, performer, and teen idol. He was the younger brother of the Bee Gees: Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. Gibb came to international prominence in the late 1970s with six singles that reached the Top 10 in the United States, starting with “I Just Want to Be Your Everything” (1977), followed by three other top 20 singles. Gibb’s success was brief due to drug addiction and depression. He died five days after his 30th birthday while attempting a comeback.

He was closest to the oldest brother Barry than any other family member. Barry mentored him during his career, sang backup on many songs, and even helped him write some of his songs. Barry claimed that the close bond of loyalty Andy had for him was returned, leading Barry himself to later comment “Andy and I was twins just as much as Robin and Maurcie were, in every sense of the word. We looked alike, we had similar moles, similar birthmarks, everything.

Solo Stardom – Songs

When Andy Gibb was 18 years, he moved to the U.S. to fight for his solo career Singer. During this time, he had already been married to Kim Reeder. They had to move together to Miami, Florida. He began his work with Barry, his brother. He went ahead to record his debut album, Flowing Rivers in 1977. His efforts proved bountiful as his first Singer album featured two No. 1 Singer hits “Love Is Thicker than Water” and Singer “I Just Want to Be Your Everything.”

Andy’s solo career earned him fame and glamour that he had long wished for. He became popular among the teens to the extent that he was a star feature in their magazines. A year later after releasing his first Singer album, he released his second Singer named Shadow Dancing – 1978. This was a multi-platinum hit with its title leading in the charts. His professional success was nothing close to the drug abuse problem he was fighting.

During the 80s, things got worse even as he released his last album After Dark – 1980. Soon, his substance abuse got better of him and made him lose jobs. Previously, he landed the job as a co-host in the show Solid Gold. He later lost his position as he did not show up for work. This also happened in Broadway as he was fired by featuring in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
