About Bobby Darin

  • Bobby Darin (born Walden Robert Cassotto; May 14, 1936 – December 20, 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actor in film and television.
  • He performed jazz, pop, rock and roll, folk, swing, and country music. He started his career as a songwriter for Connie Francis.
  • He recorded his first million-selling single, "Splish Splash," in 1958.
  • That was followed by "Dream Lover," "Mack the Knife," and "Beyond the Sea," which brought him worldwide fame.
  • In 1962 he won a Golden Globe Award for his first film, Come September, co-starring his first wife, Sandra Dee. During the 1960s, he became more politically active and worked on Robert F.
  • Kennedy's Democratic presidential campaign.
  • He was present on the night of June 4/5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles at the time of Kennedy's assassination.
  • During the same year, he discovered he had been raised by his grandmother, not his mother, and that the woman he thought was his sister was actually his mother.
  • Those events deeply affected Darin and sent him into a long period of seclusion. Although he made a successful comeback (in television) his health was beginning to fail, as he had always expected, following bouts of rheumatic fever in childhood.
  • The knowledge of his vulnerability had always spurred him on to use his musical talent while still young.
  • He died at the age of 37 after a heart operation in Los Angeles.
