Publisher Description

Andy Gibb was one of the biggest pop stars of the disco era. His first three singles—“I Just Want To Be Your Everything,” “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water,” and “Shadow Dancing”—reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 during 1977–78, and he became a fixture on television specials, appearing alongside legends such as Bob Hope, George Burns, and Dean Martin. In 1981, he became the co-host of the iconic Solid Gold television series, and a year later he starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on Broadway. But despite his enormous success, he battled with insecurity, depression, and substance abuse, causing his career to flounder and leaving him bankrupt by 1987. By then, he seemed ready to start anew and launch a comeback, but he died suddenly in 1988, five days after his thirtieth birthday.

Despite the tragic brevity of his career and life, Andy Gibb still has a strong fan base around the world, but his story has never been told—until now. Arrow Through the Heart: The Biography of Andy Gibb draws upon extensive research, rare archival interviews with Andy Gibb and members of his family, and interviews conducted by the author with nearly fifty of Andy’s friends and associates to examine the life and career of this beloved pop idol.
