Biography

Andrew Roy Gibb (March 5, 1958 – March 10, 1988) was an English-born Australian singer and teen idol, and the younger brother of Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, also known as the Bee Gees.

The Early Years
He was born Andrew Roy Gibb in Manchester, England, to Hugh and Barbara Gibb. His family immigrated to Australia within months of his birth, settling in Redcliffe, Queensland, near Brisbane.

Gibb began playing at tourist clubs around Spain’s coastal Island of Ibiza, and later back in his homeland of Britain on the Isle of Man, as a young teenager. The idea of his joining the Bee Gees was often suggested, but the age gap between him and his elder brothers (more than 11 years younger than Barry, slightly more than eight years younger than twins Robin and Maurice) made this difficult to achieve.

After returning to Australia in 1975 to hone his craft as a singer and songwriter, Gibb began recording a series of his own compositions, one of which was released as a single on the ATA label, owned by veteran Australian performer, Col Joye. “Words and Music” would eventually reach Top Five on the Sydney music charts in 1976. This breakout would pave the way to an even greater milestone later that year — an invitation from Robert Stigwood (who, at the time, was also the Bee Gees’ manager) to launch his international career signed to his label, RSO Records. Gibb soon moved to Miami Beach, Florida to begin working on songs with his brother Barry, and co-producers Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson.

    Andy Gibb fans should check out the new Bee Gees boxed set, "Mythology" There is a disc dedicated to each of the brothers, including one for Andy. At 19 tracks, it's the best Andy Gibb compilation available. His disc was compiled by his daughter, Peta.

    Love his music, haven't heard any in a long while...He was always looking over my bed as a teen. I always thought him and his brother Barry where hot. Still do. RIP Andy and your brother that also passed. He also had a song that he sang called Melody (my real name) I loved it and found out that it was a song for his sister who also had same name. I always dreamed it was him singing to me.
