It was a shocker on the radio. I was on the phone and making some notes on a yellow pad. Suddenly, I heard the flash that Andy had died. It was hard to believe. He was so young.
I can recall the day that Andy Gibb died:
"On March 7, 1988, Andy Gibb entered the hospital in Oxford, England, complaining of severe chest and abdominal pains.His career started in 1977 when he rode the Bee Gees' wave that dominated pop music in the late 1970s.
On March 10, he died of inflammation of the heart, officially as a result of a viral infection.
"When he died, it had nothing to do with drugs at all," his mother, Barbara Gibb, has said, "but the damage had been done through drugs in the first place.""
Andy's hit songs were written and produced by Barry Gibb, his older brother. His first 3 records were all # 1 in the US.
Andy faded in the early 1980s and eventually died at the very young age of 30.
His music brings back a lot of memories from the late 1970's:
