Bobby Darin was a popular musician, singer-songwriter, and actor known by his first name, Bobby. Taurus is his zodiac sign. He was 37 years old when he died. He was regarded as the most influential person in history to have been born with the first name Bobby.
Bobby Darin was an American singer, musician, and actor who was born on May 14, 1936, as Walden Robert Cassotto. Jazz, pop, rock & roll, folk, swing, and country music were among the genres he performed.
He became more politically active throughout the 1960s, working for Robert F. Kennedy’s Democratic presidential campaign. He was present at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on the night of June 4/5, 1968, when Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated.
During the same year, he found that the woman who raised him was his grandmother, not his mother and that the woman he thought was his sister was his mother. Darin was greatly affected by the occurrences, and he went into solitude for a long time.
Despite a triumphant comeback (on television) in the early 1970s, his health was deteriorating, as he had predicted, following childhood episodes of rheumatic illness. Knowing his fragility had always pushed him to put his artistic skill to good use while he was still young. After a heart procedure in Los Angeles, he died at the age of 37.
Darin’s career took off in 1955 when he started a songwriting partnership with Don Kirshner, whom he met in a Washington Heights candy store. Beginning with ‘Bubblegum Pop,’ they created jingles and tunes. His representative negotiated a deal with Decca Records in 1956. Decca’s recordings were only moderately successful commercially.
Darin starred as ‘Honeyboy Jones’ in an early episode of Jackie Cooper’s CBS military sitcom/drama Hennesey in the fall of 1959. In the same year, he became the first and only actor to be signed by all five major Hollywood studios. He composed music for several films in which he starred.
As the 1960s progressed, Darin got increasingly politically active, and his musical output became more ‘folksy.’ In 1966, he had a hit with Tim Hardin’s “If I Were a Carpenter,” which brought him back into the Top 10 after a two-year sabbatical.
Darin was a die-hard chess player. His television show had a portion where he would explain a chess move now and then. Darin met a waitress called Lillian Sweet while performing in Detroit in the summer of 1957, and she secretly gave birth to the singer’s child. Sam Tallerico was the name given to the baby when he was adopted as an infant.
