Bobby Darin Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Bobby Darin (born Walden Robert Cassotto; May 14, 1936 – December 20, 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, and actor of film and television. He performed in a range of music genres, including pop, rock'n'roll, folk, and country.He started as a songwriter for Connie Francis, and recorded his own first million-seller "Splish Splash" in 1958. This was followed by "Dream Lover", "Mack the Knife", and "Beyond the Sea", which brought him world fame. In 1962, he won a Golden Globe for his first film Come September, co-starring his first wife, Sandra Dee.Throughout the 1960s, he became more politically active and worked on Robert 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. The same year, he discovered that he had been brought up by his grandparents, not his parents, and that the girl he thought was his sister was actually his mother. These events deeply affected Darin and sent him into a long period of seclusion.Although he made a successful television comeback, his health was beginning to fail, as he had always expected, following bouts of rheumatic fever in childhood. This knowledge of his vulnerability had always spurred him on to exploit his musical talent while still young. He died at age 37, following a heart operation in Los Angeles. Wikipedia

#Fact
1 Half-brother of Gary Walden.
2 On April 24, 1958, just weeks prior to release of his breakthrough hit of "Splish Splash" for Atco Records, Darin recorded "Early In The Morning" and "Now We're One", for Decca Records. At that time, he had a few days left on his contract with Atco and was expecting to be released, but as it turned out, he was retained. Following the release of "Splish Splash", on Atco, Decca, through their subsidiary Brunswick, released "Early In The Morning"/"Now We're One" as a single, under the name of "The Rinky Dinks", Darin's back up girl group, for his Decca sessions. After Darin's voice was easily discovered on The Brunswick recordings and as he was under contract to Atco, his Brunswick recordings were withdrawn from the market and secured by Atco. Atco then , released "Early In The Morning"/ "Now We're One", by "Bobby Darin and The Rinky Dinks". In a subsequent move by Decca Records, Decca had Buddy Holly cover the both songs on a single for their subsidiary, Coral Records, where Holly was already established with such hits as "Peggy Sue and,"Rave On". Decca was hoping to recover the loss from the earlier withdrawn single. Darin's version of "Early In The Morning" entered Billboard's Pop 100 first and peaked at #24, Holly's version reached #32.
3 He made his TV debut on March 10, 1956, on The Dorsey Brothers' Stage Show (1954), performing "Rock Island Line".
4 Early in his career, while performing "Rock Island Line" on The Dorsey Brothers' Stage Show (1954), he had the lyrics written on the palms of his hands, as he had to learn the song on short notice.
5 Seriously campaigned for the role of "Tony" in West Side Story (1961). Ironically, he would wind up winning his only Golden Globe in 1962 for "Most Promising Newcomer" in a virtual tie with with Richard Beymer, who got the role as "Tony" and Warren Beatty, who had also seriously campaigned for the same role.
6 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1735 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
7 In 1964, he was "The Heart Ambassador" for The Heart Fund charity.
8 Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1999.
9 Was portrayed by Kevin Spacey in Beyond the Sea (2004).
10 He signed Wayne Newton to his record producing company (TM Music) and had him record "Danke Schoen", which was originally supposed to be recorded by Darin himself.
11 His #1 hit song, "Mack the Knife", had a strange connection with the number "59": it was the 59th #1 single of the rock era, it entered the Billboard charts at #59, and was the second biggest-selling record of 1959.
12 Recorded with legendary Nashville guitarist Hank Garland.
13 Went to the Bronx High School of Science
14 He lost his hair in his early 20s and wore a toupee thereafter.
15 His maternal grandfather was of Italian descent, and his maternal grandmother had Danish and English ancestry.
16 When he was still a struggling songwriter at the now famous Brill Building he met then up-and-coming singer Connie Francis. After a rocky beginning, the two hit it off and were soon madly in love. He had wanted to marry Connie but her overprotective father wouldn't let her date, let alone marry, anyone. When Darin suggested the two elope, he was chased from one of her shows by her father with a gun. The two only saw one another twice after that incident, once during a television appearance in which the two sang together and once during the filming of This Is Your Life (1952) of which Connie was the subject, in which the announcer had congratulated Bobby on his recent marriage to actress Sandra Dee. Connie has stated several times that not marrying Bobby was one of the biggest mistakes she has ever made in her life.
17 Elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
18 Did not find out until the age of 32 that the woman he thought to be his sister was in fact his mother and and the woman he thought was his deceased mother was in fact his grandmother. This was listed in VH1's The Greatest: 100 Most Shocking Moments in Rock and Roll History (2001).
19 Rather than internment, his body was donated to the UCLA Medical Center.
20 Son, Dodd Mitchell Cassotto (aka Dodd Darin), with Sandra Dee.
