Tuesday marks 40 years since "Mama" Cass Elliot died at age 32. In honor of The Mamas & the Papas' singer, join us in remembering her and other stars who died too young, some at the height of their careers.
Singer Andy Gibb, the younger brother of Bee Gees Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, died at age 30 on March 10, 1988, in Oxford, England, as a result of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle caused by a viral infection that was exacerbated by years of cocaine abuse. In a one-year period between July 30, 1977, and July 29, 1978, he became the first male solo artist to have three consecutive No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "I Just Want to Be Your Everything," "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water" and "Shadow Dancing."
