Andy seemed very sweet and had a nice voice, but I don't think he had the talent that his brothers had or still have in the case of Barry. The Bee Gees are multi-talented with so many wonderful songs.

He had some good songs.."Shadow Dancing" was the s#it back then. Pop and R&B radio played that one a lot....Many of the girls I went to school with (and a few of the female teachers) were smitten with Andy....There were rumors that he was going to tour with his brothers, but unfortunately he passed....They said he was never the same after his breakup with actress Victoria Principal.

From History.com

With his knee-buckling good looks and his brothers' songwriting talents backing him up, 19-year-old Andy Gibb staged an unprecedented display of youthful pop mastery in the 12 months following his American debut in the spring of 1977. And his star may have risen even higher were it not for the prodigious cocaine habit that derailed his career and contributed to his premature death. With his heart greatly weakened from years of cocaine abuse, Andy Gibb succumbed to an inflammatory heart virus on March 10, 1988. He was only 30 years old.

It's a very sad story but it's wrong to try and shame Victoria Principal.

It's been a minute (but from what I can remember), she gave him an ultimatum...She told Andy to either clean up his act or she was going to leave him. He didn't and she left...He didn't take the breakup well and he got deeper into his habit.

He did drugs but he had stopped using when he died due to a heart weakened from drug and alcohol use.

A talented family, but such tragedy in their lives. It's so sad that Barry is the last one remaining. I loved Andy's song "Our Love-Don't Throw It All Away".

Always sober? Come on, it's well known that the guy had a drug problem at one time in his short life. Victoria Principal loved the guy, and he her, but it's said that she left him because he chose drugs over her, and wouldn't give them up.
