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."
