Hey, remember The Bee Gees? The disco band that had brought us "Stayin' Alive" and "How Deep Is Your Love" among many over hits?
They had a little brother, Andrew "Andy" Roy Gibb. Born on March 5, 1958, in Manchester, England, Andy grew up in Australia when his family moved there when he was six months old. At 13, he started his career by playing his guitar at clubs and later forming the band Melody Fayre.
Eventually signing onto RSO Records with Robert Stigwood, Andy got his big break with the single, "I Just Want To Be Your Everything". "Love Is Thicker Than Water", "An Everlasting Love", "Shadow Dancing" and "Don't Throw It All Away" would soon follow in the success.
His Wikipedia page can be found here.
Andy Gibb's music provides examples of:
- Carpet of Virility: Well, he is a Gibb.
- Friend to All Children: When appearing on Punky Brewster, he had formed a friendship with the child actors with Soleil Moon Frye having a Precocious Crush on him.
- Going Cold Turkey: Had to go to rehab twice to beat his cocaine addiction.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Was a sandy blonde but was a joy to be around.
- Let's Duet: With Marie Osmond, Irene Cara, Olivia Newton-John, and Marilyn McCoo.
