Andy Gibb was born on March 5, 1958 in Manchester, England. His father, Hugh Gibb, was a bandleader of the Bee Gees and his mother, Barbara Pass, was a singer. He had three older brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb who would later become famous as the Bee Gees. Growing up he was exposed to music from an early age and started singing at a young age as well.

At the age of 11 he moved to Australia with his family and it was there that their musical success began to take off. At 15 Andy joined his brothers onstage for the first time in a performance in Sydney. A few years later he moved back to England where he began to make a name for himself as a solo artist. In 1975 he released his first single “Words and Music” which peaked at number 2 on the UK charts. The following year he had several Top 10 hits including “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” which reached number 1 in both the US and UK charts.

In 1978 Andy won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist and continued to have success with singles such as “Shadow Dancing” (which hit number 1 in the US) and “(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away” (a duet with Olivia Newton-John). By 1980 Andy's personal life had begun to suffer due to drug addiction and financial problems leading him to retire from music for some time. He returned briefly in 1988 but sadly passed away soon after due to heart failure caused by years of drug abuse at the age of 30. Despite his short career, Andy left behind an impressive catalog of music that continues to be enjoyed today.
