Andy Gibb: Age 30 | Cause Of Death: POOR MAINTENANCE

(Bee Gees)

(b. 5 March 1958, Manchester, England, d. 10 March 1988, Oxford, England)

Following the international success of his three elder brothers in the Bee Gees, Andy appeared as a star in his own right in 1977.  The pressure of living with the reputation of his superstar brothers, coupled with immense wealth and a hedonistic bent, brought personal problems and he became alarming reliant upon cocaine. Within months of his brothers autumnal and highly successful reunion in the late ’80s, tragedy struck when the 30-year-old singer died of an inflammatory heart virus at his home.
