To Honor Steve

STEVE "Boom Boom" BLAUNER
September 19, 1933 - June 16, 2015


Steve loved Al Jolson from the start. When he was 13, he saw The Jolson Story 18 times.
It turned him on to show business. He began working for Bobby in 1960.




A Tribute to Steve from Bobby's Website Team

    "Bobby gave me his life when I had only been in the business a year and a half. Our deal was he would sing but I would do everything else.
    We never had a contract; just a handshake and he always lived by it." Steve has said his most cherished moments were with Bobby.

    His impact and legacy on entertainment is enormous. Along with Bert Schneider and Bob Rafelson, Steve formed BBS Productions.
    During that time, they made Easy Rider, Academy Award winner for best documentary Hearts and Minds, The Monkees
    TV series (in which he was even mentioned in an episode), Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show, The King of Marvin Gardens, A Safe Place,
    . . . and so many more.

           

    "Bobby Darin had the greatest eye and ear for talent I have ever known ... there was never a singer in the history of this business, and
    I say this unequivocally, and no one's gonna argue with me ... whoever covered the bases that he covered and covered them as well as he did.
    One of the greats ... and someone I'll love to my grave and beyond."
