50's and 60's teen idol Bobby Rydell said this about Bobby Darin in 16 Magazine in the early
"I should like for all of Bobby's friends to know how indebted I am to him. Not only has he been kind enough to
give me hints on most of the aspects of show business, he has also helped me in more practical ways by mentioning
my name to important people who might never had known I exist. This unselfish attitude from Bobby makes me admire
him even more. He's just great!"
In 1991, Rydell appeared on Sally Jesse Rapheal's talk show to surprise special guest Sandra Dee with
his rendition of "That's All" in honor of Bobby Darin. Today Bobby (who recorded hits such as "Wild One" and
"Volare") continues to perform in a very successful act "The Golden Boys" which co-stars his old friends Frankie
Avalon and Fabian.
In his shows, he performs a true and honest tribute to Mr. Darin performing "Dream Lover," "Splish
Splash" and "Mack the Knife." Included in the tribute are photos and he speaks of his friendship with BD. He tells
of how Bobby went backstage before Bobby Rydell’s opening show at the Copa to wish him luck. At 19, Bobby Rydell was
the youngest person ever to headline the Copa.
