2. Andy Gibb

The younger brother of the Bee Gees’ Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, Andy Gibb became a pop star in the late 1970s, earning a pair of Grammy nominations in 1978. Gibb carried his success into the early ’80s, when he briefly hosted the popular music TV show Solid Gold, but drug addiction grounded his career for several years. In 1998, after suffering from chest pains, Gibb died from a heart inflammation, which doctors determined was due to his years of cocaine abuse. Gibb was 30.
