Hi fellow Darin Lovers,
So happy to see that the Bio on Bobby is in full swing. Over the years, as you all know, Bobby's recording have been lavishly used in the Movies. Now thank God he will be the subject of the movie. Hopefully this will gain Darin many new fans, and propel his already iconic status somewhere towards Jupiter!

Bobby is having a resurgence this side of the Atlantic too, endless music is played on introductions for tv programmes on the BBC. Came to the States last year and had to visit Bobbys star on the walk of fame on Vine Street. What a great site I only hope it grows. It is just a great shame the Lord takes the good ones first

Move over Frank and Sammy! After seeing the PBS station in NY run the Mack is Back concert, I realize Bobby Darin is in a class by himself. I have been a fan since my teens but now have a much deeper appreciation in adulthood of his talent. I am glad to have found your website and will keep it bookmarked. It is a wonderful and thoughtful tribute to an amazing and gifted man. I look forward to the Kevin Spacey movie which should bring even more fans into the fold. I hope Dodd will stay in touch with the fans through the website as this project unfolds. It sounds like a true labor of love for all involved. Bobby's early death is a tragedy for us all, look what he accomplished before the age of 40, we can only imagine what he would have done if he were still with us today!

Most people my age have no respect for the wonderful musicians of the past - modern music has no appeal for me, soul-less as it is...Luckily, when I was young my father played all the greats of old - Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Herman's Hermits, and the like. While there are others with the raw talent of Mr. Darin, there are few that have the panache, energy, and dedication to music that he possessed. Rest in Peace, Mr. Darin - on behalf of a new generation of Bobby fans, I salute you!

Hello everyone and especially to Linda ~ This website is a wonderful tribute to an amazingly talented man!!! I echo Pami's sentiments and words below - I actually cultivated more of an interest in Mr. Darin through my appreciation of Kevin Spacey (my favorite actor). I am immensely excited that Mr. Spacey is making the film of Darin's life...and I couldn't think of a better actor to portray Bobby Darin!
Anyhow, I am a 29 year-old actor and performer in the Milwaukee area. I unfortunately am too young to have been alive when Darin was here on earth (in fact, he passed away in December 1973, and I was born in November of 1974). I have frequently been complimented for my rousing 'kareoke' rendition of Bobby Darin's 'Mack the Knife'. I normally don't like to do kareoke, but a friend literally pushed me up there one night and told me to sing 'Mack' because she KNEW I could do it justice - at least, compared to others who had previously attempted it! Hahaha! In fact, I just won a trip to Vegas for one of my performances of this song! One evening, an older woman came up to me and told me that I reminded her a lot of Mr. Darin. It almost brought me to tears. I know that sounds very ridiculous, but honestly, I couldn't imagine a GREATER compliment. Bobby Darin, his talent, and his life have always been a tremendous inspiration to me. In fact, he is one of those artists who 'taught' me to sing...I don't think I would be doing it now had I not religiously listened to him and 'studied' his style. He was one of the truly original 'hep cats' and I am very, very proud to be a fan.
I don't want to prattle on too much - and perhaps I will pop in again and tell you more...I just wanted to congratulate Linda on such a beautiful job. I am excited that I stumbled upon this site and plan to visit often. I can't get enough of this guy! He's one of the best and always will be. I'm not sure if Dodd Darin or anyone from Bobby Darin's family reads these, but if you do - thank you for sharing what you have of Mr. Darin and his life here. I have the utmost respect for you and wish you the greatest of God's blessings in life. It is the least I can do as a Darin fan in return for the gifts he has 'given' to me these past few years!
(by the way, Pami, I completely back up your words regarding Kevin Spacey's integrity and dedication re: the biopic.)
Thanks and best to all ~ Mark

Hi, I really liked this site. I appreciate that someone has taken the time to honor Mr. Darin in such a way. I was born in 1968, so I can't say that I remember him when he was alive, but my father always loved his music. My father passed away years ago, but evertime I hear a BD song, it brings with it only pleasent memories, I'm glad to say. I watched the PBS special about his life a few years ago, and I have been a big fan ever since. I was simply amazed by the pure heart and soul that he had, and it showed in every note that he sang. I can't say enough about him, and he has been a real inspiration in my musical career as well. Thanks again for the site.

I remember seeing Bobby Darin on television as a young girl. He was a special man and one of the greatest talents of his time. He could do anything well and possessed the charisma of the greatest entertainers. I feel he wasn't as appreciated as he should have been. It took great courage for him to face life each day. I have nothing but respect for this man. Blessings.

I'm 31 years old and I've just recently become a Bobby Darin fan because of my Kevin Spacey fandom. Kevin is my favorite actor and when I heard that he was directing, producing, and starring in a biopic on Bobby Darin, I was very curious about the man and started to do research on him. Of course, I was familiar with his hits such as "Mack the Knife" and "Dream Lover" but I was not prepared to discover just how multi-talented and underrated he truly was. I recorded the "Mack is Back" special from PBS last month and was absolutely blown away by his performance and even more amazed to learn that he was very ill at the time that concert was recorded. The singing, the shimmery dance moves, his dead-on impersonations, comedic quips, and master of several instruments were all qualities that Elvis and Sinatra couldn't aspire to, in my opinion. Every day I am learning something new about Bobby Darin that astounds me, and it is so inspiring that he accomplished so much in his short life. He's one of the few singers who was so passionate in his renditions that you can actually visualize his songs and him singing - the first time I heard "Clementine" I got chills. When I listen to archived interviews and clips from his TV show, I laugh out loud.
I'd like to let all Darin fans know that as a Spacey fan, I have full confidence that the movie will be a class act. Kevin has been passionate about making the world aware of Bobby's life and talent and has been dedicated to perfecting his singing skills and nailing Bobby's persona. My hopeful prediction is that the movie will spark a lot of media interest in Bobby and create new fans. He was such an enormous talent and he deserves a lot of overdue recognition. God bless Bobby D.! And P.S. I do hope episodes from The Bobby Darin Amusement Company are released to video and DVD someday.

I agree with David King's post. I listened to the interview on the web site of Karmen and he comes off as a guy with "Pete Best syndrome". He admits in the interview he couldn't do the arrangement as Darin invisioned it and that he wasn't a great musician. Darin was the type of guy to learn what he had to learn and to seek out people as mentors and hustle,hustle,hustle. That's what the music industry demands even of the lowliest performer and we know Darin had bigger plans than that. I think we've all been in a position where you need someone who can do the job,it's not personal . I think it comes down to two very different people ;one with the drive and vision to make it happen and one guy who just didn't understand what the business demands and Karmen was the latter and that's what happens. Plus I just read this in the book Charlotte Gray:"The more you came to know a place ,the more it lost it's essence and became defined by its quirks and shortcomings;the suggestion of something meaningful was usually available with full force only to the first-time visitor." On some level we all have experienced going back home and they want to stick you back in the old box , either people support you and realize how far you've come or they don't understand the new you and the "new" experiences you've gone through. Also,If you have money you're supposed to give it all away --the same people who demand fameous people do this and that or behave a certain way won't pick up litter or volunteer even an hour of their time to "the neiborhood". The fact that you've made sacrifices, you've done the work they couldn't or wouldn't do themselves seems to escape them but they want a piece of what you have, period. Darin at a young age knew what it was going to take and I think Karmen realized too late but can't concede this point so he tries to make Darin's achievements smaller, in my opinion.

Many years ago, than I care to remember, when I was 20 and stranded in downtown Boston late at night, Bobby gave me a ride to my home in the suburbs. He was very nice, a perfect gentleman. And better looking in person than any of his photos. I cried when I heard of his passing but never dreamed he had such a difficult life until I read several books about him, including Dream Lovers (an excellent book) recently. I miss him even now - Bobby was 3 years older than I. I am looking forward to the movie, but with reservations, because of the sadness in his life. I hope they dwell on his magnificant successes.I would like to hear from anyone who is interested in writing. Take care.

Hi Folks,
Thanks to Linda for making this such a wonderful web site tribute to Darin!!! I don't know~ went to Barnes and Noble today and read a couple of pages out of Karmen's new book. He doesn't come off as a good bio writer and his claim to fame is " I Love New York". I'm not negating Karmen's talents as a jingle writer, but when you compare what Darin did in such a short amount of time with such an enormous amount of talent, my hands just sort of let the book fall to the floor. I mean it isn't a sellacious book in anyway from the few pages that I read, but why don't we just listen to Bobby's "After Today" or "Once in a Lifetime" and then you begin to realize Darin's zest for life and yes, his unforgettable contributions to the world of entertainment. And lets face it folks, Darin was the last of a breed of entertainer who could do just about anything.
Cheers,
David King

This is a fabulous find !!! .. I have heard bits and pieces of the Spacey movie over the years, but nothing concrete. To find this website is very very exciting. I remember as a little boy *I am 40 now, born in 1962* listening to the great vocalists as my mother played them on our console stereo... The Kingston Trio, Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and, of course, Bobby Darin. My next cognizant memory of Mr. Darin came while I was in the U.S. Navy during the early 80's, and the fad of "lip sync" contests swept the country. I have been involved in theater and entertaining almost all of my life, and I naturally became a "performer" in this entertainment genre. As I am not a "dancer" I looked for a song that built to a great climax but was a "vocal" all the way through the number. I hit upon Bobby's "Mack The Knife". I was enthralled. I signed up for a lip-sync contest at the base enlisted club where I was stationed, even going so far as to go out and buy a used tuxedo to perform in. Well, that first contest was phenomenal. The audience went wild for the song, and I placed first *winning $50.00, a huge amount of money for a 20 year old 3rd class petty officer...* I went on to continue competing for years in lip sync contests, and using "Mack The Knife" for almost every one. I remember a particular contest that I competed in in San Diego, CA. that was hosted by the morning personalities of KGB Radio *at the time, a "classic rock" formatted radio station*. Well, there were 18 other contestants, everyone of them "performing" songs in the genre of WhiteSnake, Led Zeppelin, etc. I was the ONLY contestant doing an "oldie" much less dressed in a tuxedo. At any rate, I count this as one of my greatest victories, not because of the prize involved *but a nice one,, a Fender Strato-caster electric guitar and floor amp* but because at the end of the contest, all of these "heavy metal" rockers and DJ's selected "Mack The Knife" as the winner. *one of the dj's even told me that it was the most outrageous win they had witnessed to date, especially since the song would never be played on their station due to formatting..)
Well, regardless of all of this, I naturally began doing a lot of research *as much as I could with the limited resources availabe* on Bobby Darin. I eventually even used other songs in contests, still winning with "Clementine", "Beyond the Sea", and even "Artificial Flowers". I used to have Bobby's rendition of "Gyp The Cat" but lost it somewhere along the way *anyone out there know where I can get it??*
But the shining, crowning moment came when I competed in a contest held at "The Hop" in Fountain Valley, CA. with Lesley Gore, Chubby Checker, Bill Medley *one of the owners at the time* and a morning jock from one of the L.A. stations and I won 5.000.00 cash. And even aside from the money (which was GREAT) Ms. Gore approached me after the contest and said, "I knew Bobby, and you were even BREATHING in the right places!" After that, I was on a mission to find a video of Bobby performing Mack The Knife. I finally did, Billboard put out a video of "Rock'n'Roll Heaven" of greats who had passed on, and I finally got to see my idol perform the song for the first time. I was floored. It was uncanny, because almost everythiing Bobby did in the performance *stance, staging, audience eye contact, etc* was what I was doing. My then wife at the time just looked at me wide-eyed, in shock (she had been my 'stage manager' so to speak when we got married).
Well, that being said, I have already bookmarked this site on my "favorites" list, and hope to hear from a lot of Darin fans in the next few weeks.

Feel free to e-mail me at "portlandpyrate@hotmail.com". Please put something "Darin-ish" in the subject line as I do delete a lot of *spam* from unknown authors. *S*

I have always thought of Bobby Darin as a fabulous all around entertainer.Mr. Sinatra could deliver a song like no one else but,Bobby took the song from creation to another level for me as a listener. I've always just loved the way he expressed himself in between the lyrics with a yell or a grunt, you could tell that he was having fun, feeling it and you couln't help but feel the music youself!! Being a songwriter myself here in Nashville and growing up in show business, I've sort of rediscovered Bobby's music and can't take a road trip with out briging a Bobby Darin collection along.

Hi fellow Darin fans,
Hope all of you have gotten Volume 7 of the Judy Garland show. There are two outakes with Bobby and Judy. What a joy to see in pristine condition!!! I think that Kevin SPacey will do a marvelous job in the role of Bobby. And being the penultimate actor that Kevin is, he might even lay down some singing tracks for the movie. Although of course I agree that Bobby's own voice should be heard on all of the vocal tracks. I've always thought of Spacey as our Actor's actor in that he can make any part seem believable so here's to Kevin! I hope that they do focus more on the music than on trials and tribulations. I think the theme of the movie should be: Here was a multi-faceted talented man who knew damn well that his time was limited but sure as hell made the most of his time here on earth!! Perhaps this will bring Bobby's music to generation xy and maybe even z.
Best,
David King

I bought a CD for him of some of your father's greatest hits, and described his "trademarks", the beat, the finger snapping, the "uh-Huhs" and unmistakeable Darin attitude. Ryan fell in love with "Beyond the Sea" and keeps playing it over and over while telling me "gramma I love to hear Bobby sing this song!" At the audition he sang "Bill Bailey" with ala Bobby Darin's style". Not only did I love your father's style, but after seeing my grandson's enthusiasm for Bobby Darin's music, your father has a whole new generation of fans... he will live on for generations to come,Dodd and even if we are not a part of the film, I can hardly wait to see his life on the screen for all to enjoy his struggle for sucess and his belief in his God-given talent.
God bless you and your family and love to your mother, a beautiful young girl, and a classy woman.

Sincerely,

Gloria and Ryan Malgarini

Hello all,
This is just a short note to let all of Bobby's fans know that Bobby's appearance with Judy Garland will be released sometime during the month of March. Very exciting, as it will be in pristine condition. Bobby and Judy sing a wonderful Train Medley concocted by Mel Torme. Along with this episode is Judy's one woman concert "Music from the Movies". I hope all of you purchase a copy as you will enjoy it tremendously.
Best,
David King

Can hardly believe that BD will be gone 30 years this year. But each and every time I watch him on video or hear one of his great songs (the ones from his Bobby Darin Motown LP are currently ringing in my ear), he comes back! Much love and best wishes to the family of BD and much respect and appreciation for the webmistress! With this site, you DEFINITELY ensure that BD is forever remembered for the dynamic and ultra-talented performer that he was. Thank you!

I was in the 7th grade in Brecksville (7th thru 12th grade in one building) when Bobby Darin was coming on the scene. We had 15 minutes in the gym before school started at 8 a.m and they would play music. Most of the guys shot baskets, but I was too short for that so I danced with all the girls to all the great songs of the era. I especially liked Mack and Knife and Beyond the Sea.

Great news regarding the movie bio. I've thought for years that Kevin Spacey would be the perfect choice to play Bobby Darin. This should lead to a whole new generation of fans learning what I've known for years; that Bobby Darin is simply one of the greatest entertainers who ever lived.

Mack The Knife was and is My All Time Favourite of any song. I sing Karaoke quite often and love to sing his songs. I wish I could have sang at least 1 with him or infront of him.I go to Paltalk and and yahoo to sing his songs.His Voice and style influenced my singing a lot. He seemed to add a new dimension to singing for me.I would have loved to thank him.I Just found out about his websight and felt totally surprized and extatic. I had just finished singing Clementine in JFK'S Room on Paltalk . Another regular informed me about this sight.I am 53 male BC Canada.

Recently I was searching for a copy of Ruby Baby for my wife to play in her new PT Cruiser that she named Ruby. I knew it was on the 18 Yellow Roses album, but that album is long out of print (I do have a copy, but the cruiser doesn't have a turntable)and it hadn't been released on CD. By accident I ran across a company on the web at www.exemplarmusic.com that was just releasing a new CD with the Your the Reason I'm Living album and 18 Yellow Roses. I bought it, and it's wonderful. They now have a new one with Hello Dolly, Goodbye Charlie, and Venice Blue. Perhaps some fans would like to know this.

Regards,

Tom
Webmasters note: Yep, www.exemplarmusic.com has been linked on the main index of BD.com/net for a long long time.Glad you like the CD!
