This episode is on Andy Gibb and the song, I Just Want to Be Your Everything.
When released as a single in 1977, I Just Want to Be your Everything went to No.1 on the American Billboard Charts, it also reached No.1 in Canada, Australia, Chile and Brazil.
Andy is of course, the younger brother to Barry, Robin and Maurice, otherwise know to the world as the Bee Gees, however, Andy’s success wasn’t confined to just the music business either, he also co-hosted the top rating American TV show Solid Gold. This show was syndicated and shown around the world.
Sadly, Andy died in 1980 aged just 30, his tragic demise often overshadows the enormous success that he achieved in the USA - On the American Billboard Charts, he had 6 singles reach the top 10, with 3 of these songs going all the way to No.1
Our special guest in this episode is Australian music legend Col Joye.
In this podcast series, there is already an episode on Col Joye and the Joy Boys and his first hit record, Bye Bye Baby.
Out of the interview with Col came this fantastic story about Andy’s early days in show business and we thought it was something that would be of interest to fans of Andy and also the Bee Gees.
The critics like to say Andy was handed his fame and success by his famous brothers, our chat with Col Joye tells a different story.
