Andy Gibb is the only Gibb brother not in HOF and he should have been inducted along with the BeeGees. He deserves to be in the HOF because he was a great talent on his own as well as singing along side his brothers.

Andy Should be in the HOF he was a Wonderful person some of the people that are in there shouldn't be but Andy should be PUT HIM IN

Andy Gibb was the first male artist to have his first three singles go to #1. That is an accompolishment that should be recognized by the Hall of Fame.

Kimberly and Heather - with all due respect to the both of you - NO! He could be recognized for nice hair, not so much for his musical accomplishments.

Andy Gibb accomplished a lot in his short musical career. He first the singles went all the way to number one. This is a record that still holds today. He also accomplished most of his musical triumphs all before his 20th birthday. Give the man credit for all his talent and trying.

Look, not EVERYONE can be in the Hall of Fame. OK... I can understand some people being upset that say, Joan Baez or The Hollies or Judy Collins or even The Monkees for God's sake, but Andy Gibb? What new trail did he blaze? Teen heart-throbs are a dime a dozen in the pop world and Andy was no so special except that he had some famous brothers and that he died far too soon. He just was not all that talented.

Andy Gibb deserves a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was a tremendous talent in his own right. His first three singles all went to #1. That is a major achievement for any artist! He should be in the Hall of Fame alongside his brothers. He accomplished more in a few short years than most people do in a long lifetime. Put him in!!!

Uh....NO!!! Without his brothers' noteriety, I think he would've flown under the radar. As a matter of fact, the first time I heard him I thought it was the Bee Gees. Must've had something to do with their work on his albums.

I never thought his brothers had a snowball's chance of getting in either, so I guess it's possible.

Mike...you have to remember that there's more to the Bee Gees than just "Jive Talkin'". Who knows where Andy would've been without his brothers...

Andy still holds the record for being the first artist to have his 3 first singles go #1. He was just as popular as his brothers in our generation if not more. He so deserves to have a well deserved spot in the Hall of Fame!

Andy Gibb's musical career was NOT independent from his brothers. Of his nine top 40 singles, only one was written solely by Andy, "Me Without You" which only made it to #40 in the spring of 1981. The songwriting credits for his other singles are as follows:

"I Just Want to Be Your Everything," "An Everlasting Love" and "I Can't Help It (duet with Olivia Newton-John)"-Barry Gibb
"Love is (Thicker Than Water)" and "Time Is Time"-Andy and Barry Gibb
"(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away"-Barry Gibb and Blue Weaver
"Desire"-Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb
(This song was originally intended for the Bee Gees' "Spirits Having Flown" album)
"Shadow Dancing"-Andy, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb
(This is the first song to be written by all FOUR Gibb brothers)

Not to mention that the Four Seasons, the Beatles, and the Jackson Five all saw their first three singles go to #1

Andy was a joy to watch perform and listen to him sing. Yes, his first 3 singles went to #1. But all he did was sing them, he didn't write them on his own. He didn't even sing them entirely on his own. His records were great, but they sounded like Bee Gees records. Hey, I had a huge crush on Andy back in the day and I loved watching him perform and listening to his records. And I STILL enjoy doing those things. And I STILL love watching him in interviews on Youtube. But I just don't feel like the things he accomplished musically, independently of his brothers, were enough to warrant a HOF induction. LOVE HIM TO BITS, but HOF inductions are not based on how much we love him.
