Hi Dodd! Birthday greetings from Long Island! Just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy birthday. Your dad will always have a special place in my heart-he was my very first little schoolgirl crush. Thank you for your book-it was very touching-the last chapters were hard to read though. As an RN I know if I'd been there, I'd have been right there at his house tirelessly caring for him making sure he was never alone.(It's too bad I was only a college reshman at the time!) But I did come away with 3 very positive impressions from your book: 1) your dad knew what was important, truely enjoying the gifts in his life-you and performing, 2)when it came to the bottom line he always did the right thing, and 3)he was always proud f you then and he would be very proud of the man you've become on your own now. He was a special person..and you are, too. Have a great birthday.

Happy Birthday! I think your dad really was the greatest entertainer ever and it truly saddens me that he was taken so young.

Dear Mr. Darin, I have been a huge fan of your father's since 1958 when I was ten years old. He was the single greatest entertainer of the twentieth century, better than Sinatra and Presley, a terrific actor, great songwriter, gifted writer, and the definitive cabaret p rformer of his generation. He was probably the best white singer of r & b, and essentially invented folk rock, and was one of the first and most important pop artists to crossover into country. But you know all this...just know that there are others who hare this knowledge. Thank you for your efforts to keep your father's name and talent alive. We all hope to see more and more of the great music on CD (this year has been a wonderful improvement). I'm a professional writer (author of fifty published novels, most recently the novelization of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN) and have on occasion written about your father. Your book was first-rate. Happy birthday and God bless you. Max Allan Collins

Happy birthday, Dodd. Ever since I was a little girl, I've been smart enough to think Bobby Darin was one of the greatest entertainers ever, and I cut my teeth on Al Jolson! To me, your father was in the same class, and I think that's saying something. How much I appreciate that you wrote "Dream Lovers"! Thanks for that--and I wish you continued success in all you do.

Best wishes to you, Dodd. Your book was a wonderful, moving glimpse into the lives of two complicated, fascinating people. Your father's music, his joy of performing and his exuberant spirit are an important part of my life, and I think the dignity, respect and care with which you've handled the estate are to be commended.

Dear Mr. Darin- First, Happy Birthday! Second, I'll make this short! Thirdly, I must tell you your father is a big inspiration to a lot os us: this site speaks for itself. But as a young aspiring actor/singer, Bobby Darin and so much about him serves as a guide to show biz, to life, to the arts and so much more. I can onl hope I gain one moment of a career like his. If I do not reach such goals, know of the importance he left for us students of the craft. If I do go where my heart is leading me, all credit due will go out to the world that Mr. Darin was and is a part of my success. Now I hope that doesn't sound overly dramatic or anything, it's just you should be very proud and I am that many things I've learned about from performing to life, comes from you father and his likes. So lastly, please keep up on the release of new Darin material as it benifits fans as well as us students of the arts, thanks for giving us the book, all the best, and again Happy Birthday!!! Take Care- ~Keith Survillas

Happy birthday,Dodd. I've been a fan of your dad's since "Splish Splash." He was and is my idol; I was devoted to him all my life. Once when I was sick, I sent him a note. He sent me a telegram from the Copa. Hope that you can help us get Motown,Capitol and Atlantic to release some records. My birthday is December 19th and my thoughts are always with your father as it was the day before his death. My best to you and your family.

I want to first wish you a very Happy Birthday Dodd, plus I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed your book. It was difficult to read about how your dad suffered, but I do appreciate all the hard work you put into it. I'm sure th t you've enlightened many fans about both of your parents and I know that I now appreciate your father much more than if the book had not been written. Your dad brought such energy to a performance and had such a dynamic stage presence. His music is the only music that I've ever been able to listen to day after day and never tire of. I feel that one of the marks of a truly great artist is for their mus c to always seem "fresh" regardless if it was recorded decades ago. When I listen to Darin at the Copa (for example), it's not "dated": it has such spirit, vitality and energy that it could've been recorded yesterday! I truly hope that your father recei es the appreciation for his outstanding talent that he has always deserved. Lastly, I'd like to send my best wishes to your Mom, your wife and your little daughter. I'm so glad to hear that things are going well with you and your family. I can only imagine what a grandpa Bobby would've been! Best of luck with everything and (o ce again) Happy Birthday!!! P.S. Thanks for those previously unreleased recordings on the A & E CD! I've almost played that CD into the ground....

Hi Dodd, Happy Birthday! I'm so glad to have this opportunity to write to you. I became a big fan of your Dad's back in 1972 when he was making a comeback. I was only 13 and I thought he was the best. I was listening to Bobby Darin records and all my friends wer listening to whoever was popular at that time (I can't even remember). His records were hard to find but I found a record shop that sold old albums and my Mom would take me and that's how I got my collection.I've listened to his music all these years. (N w I have my kids listening to it). It was always my dream to see him in person but it was not to be. His passing was a great loss for you and his many fans. I read your book a couple of years ago and I recently read his other biography "Borrowed Time". My interest in Bobby Darin has never ended. I know you can't answer all these E-Mails but if you can I would appreciate hearing from you. Enjoy your birthday!

Dear Dodd, This seems like a good opportunity for me to say thank you for your moving book "Dream Lovers". I picked it up after seeing "Beyond the Song" on public TV and devoured it in one night. The book is quite simply an inspiration. I thank you and your Mother f r your honesty and your insights. I hope your Mom is - and will be - well and happy for ever! She deserves it. As for your Dad - God rest his soul. There never will be another Bobby Darin. Happy Birthday to you and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Bobby was the love of my life, my first love, in 1961 when I was 12 and saw Come September. It was also the first year I had a crush on a "real" boy, and Bobby's love songs were there for me in my ups and downs. I saw him perform three times, first at the Moulin Rouge in Hollywood in around 1962, then, at the Coconut Grove in Hollywood, probably in '63, and last, at the Flamingo Hotel in Vegas, also probably '63. At the Moulin Rouge, the fans were allowed to go backstage after the wonderful show and have t eir picture made with him. I spoke to him about something I'd read about him in the paper, that he had hurt his finger in a freak accident. He was friendly and warm, he showed me his finger, the scar on it. He was personal. He was so special. I had saved oney in my piggy bank for our trip to the Flamingo Hotel performance, to tip the maitre d so I could get a good seat. I didn't get a great seat, but after the show, the maitre d told us (me and my parents) to come with him. He took us backstage, and Bobby had agreed to let us come back and meet him. There were no other fans, just me and my parents. He made small talk with my dad. He was just so warm and approachable. He really liked people, he really cared about people. I feel so lucky that of all the movi stars and teen idols I could've gotten hung up on, it turned out to be him. Dodd, happy birthday. I remember the day you were born. And thank you for the wonderful book you wrote about your parents. I was deeply moved by it. Wow, this internet/web stuff s great.

Hi, Dodd! Anybody who was born in December has got to be a great person (my birhtday is this month, also). My dad died when he was 46, so I know how it feels to lose a parent so young and miss making the day to day memories that are so precious later on. I want to wish you a happy birthday, Merry Christmas.. and may God bless!

Happy Birthday! Your dad IS my favorite star/singer of all times (I'm 59 yrs). There will never be anyone to compare with him. His personality was one to draw his fans to him FOREVER. I miss him. He died on my birthday, one of my saddest birthdays. y husband and I met him after an Andy Williams show and he was so NICE. We first heard/saw him in Northern CA, singing for home sales (free, in the late 50's---I think). That caused me to buy the first album! I have them all!

Happy Birthday Dodd! Caught the "Beyond" show tonite and loved it. Your dad did what Sinatra could not: He brought big band swing to teenagers again. As a teen who played swing in 1960, I couldn't believe my ears when Bobby switched to the big band so nd, and everybody was loving it! I still play swing. Wish I had an arrangement of Beyond the Sea. This show is my first glimpse into his and your life. Are you in music? - Larry

I never realized till now the extreme talent of this man, yes I did enjoy and loved him, but he mastered the entertainment of every level a melodic voice, acting perhaps he started the moonwalk. With people as you and your parents in the world, its a brighter place ...keep the faith God is with you

Dear Dodd, Dec. 16th, Happy Birthday! I was a hugh fan of your Dad's from the beginning of his career in the late 50's. I collected all of his records and literally wore them out playing them constantly. I saw him at the Hollywood Bowl when he appeared with Dick Clark (I was just a kid). He left left us much too soon, but what an impact he did leave. Sincerely, Margie Preston (formerly of San Diego, CA) Granbury, TX

Well, Dodd, thanks to wonderful changes in the world of technology, I feel privileged to be able to communicate with the son of two of my favourite stars from the sixties. Your mom's character "Tammy" is one of my all time favourites and I still hum the tune from the movie and it always gives me a good feeling. Your dad's "Mack the Knife" defined the character for me and helped me discover Kurt Weill and "The Threepenny Opera". Bobby Darrin's version is the definitive version as far as I'm concerned. Have a great birthday!

Dear Dodd, I'm so happy I can communicate with you. I saw you on Channel 28 last night, and I "looked you up on the internet." I love your dad's songs. I was young when they first came out. I remember hearing "Splish Splash" on the radio. I loved it! I eagerly awaited all your dad's new songs after that. The song that is among my all-time favorites is "If I were a carpenter." The song and lyrics are just beautiful. I'm sure there are lots of people like me who would like to hear more about your dad. That's why I was so happy to see the documentary, and see you on Channel 28. You seem like such a wonderful person. Bobby couldn't be prouder of you. I think Entertainment Tonight should cover the opening of your new restaurant "Dream Car." Where is the restaurant going to be? I'd love to go there. I live in Los Angeles. I read your book "Dream Lovers." Your mother is so sweet and beautiful. Please give her my love (from a fan she might not have known she had - me.) I wish you and your mom and your family all the love and happiness in the world. I am glad you are out there "perpetuating your dad's memory" as you said because I sure want his memory perpetuated! Thank you for that. My best wished and love. Ellen

Happy birthday Dodd, I guess you're about my age (I'm 35) and I assume you're a bigger Bobby Darin fan than I am. I got hooked on Bobby Darin in El Salvador (my home country, though now I live in New Orleans) when I was a kid. We used to get the American .V. shows late, sometimes a couple of years late. But I remember being a kid and watching Bobby Darin's shoulder-and-finger-snap routine on T.V. and going wild. That was a totally cool guy!!!!!!!!!

Your book touched me, and your appearances in "Beyond the Song" stand as a great tribute to your father's memory. Many more happy birthdays!

Happy Birthday,Dodd! Interesting to note your dad's birthday is close to mine (May 22) I taped the PBS special - then checked the web as I am hungry for more info about this multi-talented dad of yours. Ordered your book & will order the CD collection. I am now addicted to Bobby Darin's music & life story. Congratulations!

The PBS special on Bobby Darin's life was just the most special program. Your father was a great talent. I did not realize that he left us at such a very young age. I wish you the greatest birthday ever, but you already have the best gift when you were born, two very special parents, Bobby Darin and Sa dra Dee.

My older brother was named after your father, as my mom was such a huge fan. After viewing the PBS special tonight, I finally understand how she felt. I hope you have a lot of good memories. Happy Birthday to you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I FEEL REALLY BAD FOR LOSING YOUR DAD WHEN YOU WERE SO YOUNG. HE WAS YOUNGER THEN I AM. I'M 41 . I JUST LOST MY MOM LAST YEAR. SHE ALWAYS LOVED YOUR DAD SINGING SO MUCH. ESP. MACK THE KNIFE. I LOVE HIS SONGS BUT THAT WASN'T ONE OF MY FAV.T ERE WAS A SHOW ON T.V. TONIGHT WITH YOU NARR. ABOUT YOUR DAD AND IT MADE ME FEEL SO GOOD. I GOT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HIM AND GOT TO SEE HIS SON (YOU) AND YOUR DAUGHTER(SHE IS SO PRETTY). BUT IT REALLY MADE ME FEEL CLOSE TO MY MOM BECAUSE SHE LIKED HIM SO MU H AND I WAS TO YOUNG TO REMEMBER ALL OF THAT. ACTUALLY I WASN'T EVEN BORNED IN THE BEGINNING OF HIS CAREER. HAPPY BIRTHDAY I AM SURE IT WAS HARD FOR YOU TO RELIVE THINGS. BUT IT REALLY MEAN'T ALOT TO ME.

Happy Birthday to you. This evening we enjoyed Bobby Darin on public t.v. Very interesting and enjoyable. One of the greatest talents known. We understand how you would miss not having him with you simply because he was such an 'alive person'. Have a Fund rful Day.

A very happy birthday to you Dodd. Your book really moved me. I can see you did some real soul searching and you came out with a masterpiece! I listen on the way to work often. Your mom has touched millions with her work in her films and her personal l fe. I pray to God she finds love and happiness. Thanks so much for what you have done for your mom - its ultimate compassion.

Happy Birthday fellow Sagittarian! I am so happy to see that you are involved in bringing more of your father's music and other talents back into the media. There is so much to be seen and heard, he was such a talent. I thoroughly enjoyed your book and hope that there will be updates as you learn more about your parent's lives and how this knowledge has changed your life. Happy Birthday! Have a Great Day!

Happy Birthday from a fan in NY who just read your book (yeah, I know, a little late-we just added it to our local library's collection last week) and really loved it!! It was so interesting. Now I have to go out and find all your Dad's recordings and mo ies and see all your Mom's movies (again). I hope "the movie" I keep hearing about gets made-I know for sure my absolute favorite actor-Kevin Spacey-is real interested. wow-that would be something. Happy Birthday again-I hope everyone in your family is happy and healthy.

Dodd- Hi there! I'm 18 years old and have been a major fan of your mom's for about three years now. She was and still is a stunningly beautiful lady. Your dad was an amazing singer. I have his greatest hits and I love listening to his voice. Dream Lover is one of my favorite songs. Between the two of them, they couldn't help but have one very talented, good looking kid. :) I hope you have a Very happy birthday, a Merry, blessed Christmas and may God continue to shower your family with blessings in the coming y ar. Take care, Ashley

Dodd: I had to come back and add some more to my comments of a couple of weeks ago. Last week I finally got to see the PBS special and it was truly marvelous. All of the TV footage (especially his first appearance) was so fantastic plus those all too brief clips of him at the Cocoanut Grove just took my breath away! Any chance that a video of his Cocoanut Grove appearance could become available someday? I wanted to say that I thought that the special (long overdue IMO) did a really good job in showing how much talent and influence your dad had with other performers. I sometimes think that, over time, people have sort of brushed your dad off, but this special proved that well respected, well known entertainers were in awe of his talent (i.e. Sammy Davis, Jr. for one example) and were heavily influenced by him. I thought that one of the most touching moments of the special was when you were talking about how much you miss him and they showed that picture of you at the Cocoanut Grove in your little tux staring up at your dad with those big eyes and that admiring smile on your face. I've never met your mom or dad, but I can cert inly tell that you were definitely the most important part of their lives (anyone can see via that special how close your Dad was with you) and I only wish that he could've seen your beautiful daughter. It is also apparent that regardless of what she sai (she'd would've NEVER given you to the Martians...moms say that, but they would never do it :-))you have a loving, devoted mom who's very proud of you. Well, I've taken up enough bandwidth, so I'll sign off now and let someone else have a turn! Take care and hope you've had a great birthday! too.
