1958: Singer Andy Gibb, the younger brother of Bee Gees Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, is born in Manchester, England. 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." He died five days after his birthday, on March 10, 1988, as a result of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle caused by a viral infection that was exacerbated by years of cocaine abuse.
