Bobby Darin Guestbook
|Frank Hulse - 2010-12-31 22:43:09||Hello all Bobby Darin fans, Bobby’s music is great
and will continue to be forever.||Julie - 2010-12-31 07:16:03||I enjoyed listening to Bobby as a young girl. I now can understand
his talent and place in the world more fully. I believe his uniqueness and
genius went under-appreciated. I appreciate him and feel for the personal
sadness which he had to endure. I only hope we can see him again in Heaven.||Allen Bercume - 2010-12-30 23:28:50||Bobby Darin to me was a Better Showman and a Better Entertainer
than Frank Sinatra, this is my Opinon, I am purchasing a C.d next week of Bobby
Darins top hit CD called |
The Legendary Bobby Darin. This C.D sounds like a winner.
I think Bobby Darin should be presented with the Kennedy Honor.
|michael day - 2010-12-30 17:23:38||Hi, i am starting as a Bobby Darin tribute from JAN
2011. I have been a performer for 20 years and always sang his songs as parts of
others shows. The time has come to dedicate a heartfelt tribute to the man and
his music. It will never die and I will always be a fan. Michael from the UK||Alvin Kitzmann - 2010-12-30 01:23:42||If I were a Carpenter... one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever
heard. Thank you, Bobby. Everything you did was quality.||shirley engstrom - 2010-12-29 23:04:56||I loved listening to BD over the years. I thought Sandra Dee was
so beautiful and sweet. I am a true fan. |
For months, before I went to sleep, I played Simple Song of Freedom which was on you tube but taken off.
Maybe I can find a recording and I can focus on Bobby’s skill when singing, it is so intelligently shaped. But I am so sad that this song was removed from You tube because Bobby smiled in that song about putting the people who wanted to have war on a shelf to fight it out themselves, and said that we the people want to sing. That smile was so genuine. I do not want to do without it. Can you help get it back?
|Vincent Toscano - 2010-12-29 16:07:47||I really enjoyed Boby’s songs and I thought he and Sandra Dee were
really great people. I enjoyed Sandra as well. I always had a crush on her from
the monemt I saw her. Great Family and wish you, Dodd, and your family the very
best.||Steve - 2010-12-29 11:54:59||I was lucky enough to get a 3 disc box set of Sunday
Night at the London Palladium, it is full of great acts and stars of yesteryear
including Bobby Darin, marvelous! |
If you want to know more or even perhaps order a dvd set please click my web site link
|Nancy Jean - 2010-12-28 02:12:11||Finally viewed "beyond The Sea" with my husband. Kevin portrayed
the great Bobby Darin so well. I’m hoping to pick up Dodd’s book, "Dream Lover."||Jo Ann Smalley Herrman - 2010-12-28 01:51:49||Bobby will always be my main man. I’ll never forget him. ||Dr.Sa’ad F.H..AL-Salihi - 2010-12-27 11:56:18||A great history for the American nation, A symbol of love,
humanity & a great performer. |
|Bruce McNeely - 2010-12-26 17:35:10||My love and I watched "Beyond the Sea" yesterday - what a great
film and a great legacy! Mack the Knife was one of my faves as a kid, and it’s
always my song of choice when I’m forced to do Karaoke. |
I just thought I’d add a suggestion to the Music section of Pop Culture References. Roger McGuinn of the Byrds (another personal musical hero of mine) put out a live disc of his solo act (Live From Mars) a few years back, which has a retrospective commentary about his career. This includes a story and song from Roger’s time working in the Brill Building with Bobby Darin; "Beach Ball", a song he recorded at Bobby’s urging, with Bobby sitting in on drums.
I saw roger in concert a couple of years ago, and he still mentions Bobby Darin in his commentary. Roger credits Bobby as a mentor, especially regarding a professional attitude and stage presence.
|Dave S. - 2010-12-26 00:12:47||Mr. Darin was one of the few talents that ever were who you would
call a "complete entertainer"....and could he ever sing a song. Wow!!||Roberto Murta - 2010-12-25 11:39:00||I remember Bobby Darin very much, as one of the most important
singers - and actors - worldwide and also in my country, Brazil, by the time I
was a teen ager, in the 1950’s. He’s really a legendary memory of the teen agers
romantic days in the so called "Golden Years". He’s, great, wonderful,
sensational!||Braulio - 2010-12-23 22:50:39||As a kid growing up in NYC, his many songs made those days for me.
Always, always remembered. May your showmanship and personality live on for
ever.||Arnold Kreuger - 2010-12-23 17:10:27||Tears in my eyes. What a performer !||IRVING PRESSER - 2010-12-22 05:53:35||BOBBY DARIN WAS TRULY ONE OF THE GREATEST PERFORMERS OF THE
AS A BABY BOOMER FROM THE BRONX, BOBBY DARIN IS TRULY MISSED.
TIME TO HONOR HIM WITH A POSTAGE STAMP IN HIS HONOR
|VC - 2010-12-21 17:32:22||My wife and I just watched the 2004 movie "Beyond the Sea" and was
impressed with Bobby Darin’s background beginning with his illness as a child to
becoming one of the great performers in the 50s and 60s. His voice and music
lives on as his legacy. ||Judy McRae - 2010-12-21 11:36:44||Rembering Bobby on the 37th Anniversary of his passing and the
wonderful array of music he left for us all to enjoy.Always in my Prayers and
Masses especially this Christmas. Wonderful Memories. Judy||Gloria F - 2010-12-21 01:18:11||Bobby Darin’s incredible life and unequaled talent are an
inspiration to those of us who love and admire him. Rest in peace dear Bobby.
You have’t been forgotten||Rita Pavone - 2010-12-20 20:14:58||UN ARTISTA UNICO !Una presenza scenica che non aveva uguali, una
gamma vocale inimitabile, un senso del ritmo incredibile, una bravura e una
versatilità a 360 gradi per qualsiasi genere musicale. E come se non bastasse ;
imitatore, musicista,compositore,produttore, ballerino... |
Se oggi fosse ancora vivo, potrebbe persino interpretare- credibilissimo - il rap.
Io ero,e continuo ad essere, una delle più grandi fan di questo straordinario e multiforme talento artistico.
Ci manchi,Bobby.Non sai quanto ! Le nuove generazioni non hanno idea di cosa si siano perse... Rest in peace my hero
|kathy - 2010-12-20 19:44:47||Bobby Darin had a voice whether he was singing talking or
omg,laughing.He was a one of a kind!! I listen to him all the time,No one can
ever come close to the vast talent.So young,So sad...Kathy ||Su Cote - 2010-12-20 18:46:06||He lives on with us in his music, his movies and photos. I like to
believe that he is watching over all of us and rejoicing that his memory is safe
with us and being shared with the generations to come. He was an amazing gift to
each and every one of us. If he were here now I’m sure that he would be thrilled
with the technological advances and be coming up with new and exciting music for
us.||linda p - 2010-12-20 17:51:33||Bobby was the greatest----his sweet voice rings through my life
every day. One can only imagine what he could have done if he had lived a
normalmlife span. Rest in peace, Sweet Bobby||Sean Patrick McMullin - 2010-12-20 03:57:09||He is the king of all that is good and great. We are forever in
his debt for all that he gave us his passion still sustains us||Debbie Froese - 2010-12-17 19:33:31||I am the same age as Dodd Darin. I remember Bobby Darin and
admired him when I was young. I remember watching him on TV and thinking how
smooth he was. And really cute! I didn’t, however, know that much about his
life. I watched Kevin Spacey’s Beyond The Sea, because I love Kevin Spacey and
think he’s just as smooth as Bobby in a lot of ways. OK, I love Kevin. I have a
14 yr old daughter who loves music, so I asked her to watch BTS with me. She’s
totally enamored with Bobby now, as I am. And guess what? She has Bobby Darin on
her iPod now! That is truly how timeless Bobby is. I love him.||IONA LAURA PERRY - 2010-12-16 21:50:14||I love to hear him sing|| slugirl64 - 2010-12-14 05:28:16||I still feel sad that Bobby’s music and artistry was not with us
for a longer time. Returning to his music is a happy experience. I figure he
would have rivalled Neil Diamond in lasting popularity and music quality..and
i’m a big ND fan for about 48 years. Love Bobby!||Mary Ellen Parisian - 2010-12-14 02:59:31||You are not forgotten and your music will live on.||Sergi Insomnia - 2010-12-11 22:32:30||His geniality will never be forgotten ||José L. Pulido - 2010-12-11 21:23:39||Saw the picture of his life (TV feature), and transpot me to my
youth. Bobby was a part of it. He was a great singer and composer as good actor.
Unfortunely, he pass away so young. But his pictures and music stay today with
us. Thanks Bobby.||Leila Metti - 2010-12-10 18:45:34|
Age 67 - Dear Bobby, thanks for the memories your songs evoke (especially Nature Boy, More, Simple Song of Freedom). You are NOT forgotten.
|Jorge V. García - 2010-12-07 18:28:21||Nací y vivo en Argentina, y siempre he admirado el talento de
Bobby. Tengo casi todas sus canciones y me sigue emocionando escucharlo, sobre
todo en Beyond the Sea, Mack the Knife y muchas otras. |
Mientras se sigan escuchando sus canciones, Bobby nunca morirá.
|carolyn tate - 2010-12-06 18:50:17||I am now at the great age of 62, having lived through the Beatles,
Rolling Stones, Who, Roxy Music etc. etc. but on my computer I keep coming back
to THE Bobby Darin - I don’t quite know why, especially as I normally hate that
sort of crooning style - he was special. (If I were a carpenter will probably
live on in me forever) ||Carolyn DeMoss - 2010-12-06 02:25:17||Bobby’s music was so special.....I grew up in his era in the 50s
and 60s. I couldn’t remember when he passed. I’m sorry that the world has been
deprived of whatever music he would have continued to produce had he lived into
old age. ||Shari Bennett - 2010-12-04 04:03:41||I’m watching a PBS special about Folk Music. Many years ago I
heard a song about "We The People". I could never find out who sang it until
tonite. It was Bobby in a break from his standard music. It is a wonderful song
still very appropriate today. |
Thanks and love to the singer of my heart.
|Tom Wilson - 2010-12-03 21:29:38||The music lives on. My son, a freshman in high school, is singing
Mac the Knife or That’s All at the school cabaret night. Pretty cool. ||mitchell torok - 2010-12-02 17:03:58||i met bobby on a dick clark sta night show from hollywood when he
was introducing mack the knife...we talked some...i asked him why he departed
from what he was doing ( splish splash et.) he toldme he wanted toreach outto a
bigger audience...iwas plugging my country/pop hit caribbean at the time on the
jamie guyden label...just caught him doing ’we dont want no war’and would like
to find it or hear it again somewhere...mitchell torok ||Andrew Merey - 2010-11-30 19:07:51||Just to let you know, my latest column, Looking Back,
is about singers making that big jump to motion pictures, highlighting |
the fact that Bobby Darin was second to none in this category.
Also, already slated for publication in 2011 by American Music Magazine is my feature length article Bobby Darin; An Appreciation.
|Vincenzo STROMEU - 2010-11-29 06:59:22||Memories are made of these... They last beyond Life itself!
For memories are made of legends,... and Bobby is one of the
best that ever were in the music world!... His life’s short
span outlasted life itself with it’s quality!... I sill
recall his songs beyond my youth, and after my adulthood!
| Frances - 2010-11-28 02:33:39||Bobby Darin was one of the best preformers of all time,he is
greatly missed and will forever be loved & remembered...R.I.P Robert Walden
Cassotto.||Jim - 2010-11-27 19:31:06||I want to by the best bobby darin cd. someone tell me which one is
the best quality sound and music..
darin on subject line. Thank you||Doris Coombs - 2010-11-27 06:03:34||I love Bobby and his music I have all his books and DVD’s. I wish
there were more Icould get. I also have all his movies. I’d like the dvd’s of
his TV series when he filled in for the Dean Martin Show. Cheers. All my best to Dodd and his family.||shirley engstrom - 2010-11-24 20:58:41||I like Bobby as much as a song writer as a performer and just
listening to him with accoustic guitar, singing Simple Song of Freedom, he puts
that song across so well. No wonder Sammy Davis Jr. Thought so well of him. I
remember hearing that he had died in 1973 and it was news that hurt. I am glad
to find him here on you tube. |
I hope Dodd Darin has a long, happy and peaceful life. I loved Bobby Darin. S
|Tom Roady - 2010-11-24 05:01:20||I’m an old friend of TK’s we are ex Ankettes...he
needs to email me
please..email@example.com thanks Tom Roady|| jeanette - 2010-11-22 23:44:11||One of the best of all time!||Kaiya Marie - 2010-11-21 02:46:13||Love his music. His interpretion of "If I were a Carpenter" makes
me believe in love||John Ashlin - 2010-11-20 21:12:20||Bobby was the geatest. We miss him and all of his fabulous songs.
He was too young to be called elsewhere||azize dibo neto - 2010-11-20 20:52:42||The guy was great...he did not have time to prove that he was
better than Frank Sinatra!|| lolo - 2010-11-20 20:45:46||some where beyond the sea >>> |

|Debbie Nuciforo - 2010-11-20 16:04:38||One of the Greatest Entertainers of our Time!||George - 2010-11-20 15:59:30||Will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers of
all time.||Ann Soenen - 2010-11-20 15:26:56||I miss you and your pure voice ||majda - 2010-11-20 10:32:00||I like your personality Bobby .Your music still in our minds.every
time I feel bad I listen to you,I LOVE you .YOU are a true human being with good
intentions...... ||Tina Calvin - 2010-11-11 03:31:28||I was only five when bobby passed but I grew up with his music and
all the oldies i’m so glad to see you gave your father’s fans a site to come to.
I have collected all his music just wondering if you will ever sell autographed
pictures or even unautographed? Would be great to have for my collection. Thank
you ||Cris Owen - 2010-11-10 20:08:58||I was so sad that Bobby died so young. I know he had health issues
from an early age. He was such a dynamic singer. I wish the radio stations would
play his music more today to show young people true music. I loved Mack the
Knife, Beyond the Sea. God bless him.|| joe - 2010-11-07 16:27:49||Was just listening to bobby’s music and realized how much he is
missed||John - 2010-11-06 04:29:07||I just watched the movie Beyond the Sea. I will forever think of
memories as moonbeams with a tear and a smile. Thank you Mr. Darin for your
music and your message.||Bob C Bleins - 2010-11-05 17:24:46||I just watch Beyond The Sea, and as I watched it, it brought back
the memories of listening to Bobby’s great songs. It brought up special memories
in my own life and even cryed watching his show. Dream Lover was one of my wife
and I’s song. Sandra, you are a special woman, and I loved your movies. You
rock. I know your Son is proud of you. God Bless you and yours. ||MELODY - 2010-11-04 20:29:24||WHAT A STRONG INDIVIDUAL, DETERMINED TO MAKE A DREAM COME

love all your music,god bless you||marc courtemanche - 2010-11-03 16:21:05||one of the regrets in my life is that I never met this man or saw
him perform||MaryLou Kovalik - 2010-10-29 01:05:06||I have adored this man since I was around 12 years old, always my
favorite of the "teen idols" that I remember from way back then. I’m 62 now, and
still play his music all the time. Since I’ve discovered YouTube, I’m addicted
to whatever I can find to listen to and watch. I know in my heart that his music
will go on a long time, each generation will "discover" what true talent sounds
and looks like. I wish I had gotten to see him perform. He was the very best||Jan Olsson - 2010-10-28 14:04:11||You´re just great, man!||Sherry - 2010-10-25 11:37:53||Thank you for the web site. Bobby Darin was a great artist future

voice, his music instantly make me smile and lift me up. That was his gift to
the world, to bring you happiness even for just a moment. He is my favourite
artist of all time! |
What a legend!
|Carol - 2010-10-23 11:15:49||Bobby Darin was the love of my life. He was sexy and so good
looking. I just don’t know what people are thinking when they consider him
average looking. He was adorable. He would have been everything I ever wanted.
His stage presents was great. So smooth and suave. When I see his videos, I just
wish I could hold him in my arms. Lucky Sandra!!||Madouha from morocco - 2010-10-22 19:08:28||i discover his music last week and i am already in looooooveee of

Lord have mercy on your soul. i do miss you. |
| Nancy Petry - 2010-10-22 16:23:41||I don’t think there is anyone who "loved" Bobby more than I did;)
When I was a kid, I had the privilege of seeing him at the Chase Park Plaza
Hotel in St. Louis, Mo. |
I played his album, Live at the Copa, so much that my brother broke it!!
I also loved Sandra, of course. What a beautiful girl!!
My Bobby! I still miss him.

|bob legs legory - 2010-10-18 21:46:26||I had the privilege to see Bobby at the Latin Casino in Cherry
Hill NJ, Flip Wilson was his opening act. So glad that I had a chance to see
him. It was a great show and I’ll never forget it. I’ll be his fan for the rest
of my life. Hope to see the show upstairs. smile||Karen Bray - 2010-10-17 04:57:42||I am just awestruck after watching "Beyond the Sea" and then
looking up and listening to Bobby’s music. What an amazing God given talent he
was. His music is timeless, relevent and soul shaking. You can listen to his
music now and feel like no time has passed.....I am so touched by listening I
can’t express it into words. This man’s passion will never die.||diane - 2010-10-16 20:48:04||Always one of my favorites. You live thru your music and in our
hearts forever.||Carol - 2010-10-16 16:47:21||I Always like Bobby Darin, but after seeing Beyond the Sea. |

God bless him.
|Paulo Castelo Branco - 2010-10-12 23:58:46||I am very happy since I may to say some words about Bobby Darin,
this marvellows and complete artist. Bobby, You’ll be always between us through
his music and his voice. I saw your films when I was a boy and I saw in you a
special person. I still have your LPs and I’ll save them for ever. God bless
Many thanks for your pretty existence. (from Brazil)
|alan pike - 2010-10-10 19:57:34||fantastic singer and songwriter mack the knife is immortal but hey
listen to b side was there a call for me. still one of my all time favourites||Mary Trnka - 2010-10-10 15:53:19||A great artist and entertainer, taken away from the world at too
young an age. I don’t think I ever heard a song from him that I did not like his
styling. "If I Were a Carpenter" and "Beyond the Sea" are two of my favorites.||Leora Svihovec - 2010-10-07 20:43:52||I am years younger than Sandra Dee so I was quite young when his
music was the thing but as a teenager I enjoyed her movies and the ones they did
together. I loved their story and some of the songs. They lived a hard life but
made a great couple. The year they got divorced I married at a young age. I see
they had a very handsome and wonderful son. Best to you and your family. Enjoy
the wonderful memories ||Tony Assande - 2010-10-07 19:29:09||Bobby Darin is one of my favorite performers and personalities. "I
am" is one of his own compositions which touched me but "Rainin’" is the one I
listen to most of all.|| Jerry Weaver - 2010-10-06 09:13:28||Bobby Darin - "Dream Lover" my favorite of all time.||Peter Magurean III - 2010-10-05 21:38:17||I recall from my boyhood enjoying the fresh quality of Bobby’s
talent which has been memorialized by Kevin Spacey’s "Beyond the Sea". Bobby was
a great entertainer who will for always be a major part of the American social
and musical culture! ||Fran Ashlin - 2010-10-04 19:22:41||He was my all time favorite||Barbara - 2010-10-04 01:18:59||love anything he does!! ||Heather D - 2010-10-03 17:04:24||I have always loved Bobby’s version of Mack the Knife. The warmth
of his voice and his sense of timing & rhythm are incredible. Bobby Darin’s
version is truly the definitive version of Mack!||Cris Coleman - 2010-10-03 15:20:31||I never heard a song Bobby Darin sang that I didn’t
like, although "Mack the Knife" wasn’t my favorite. Among my favorites was
"Things". Does anyone know who the female backup singers were for this song?
Thanks||Phil Edwards (Mr) - 2010-10-03 00:46:05||Bobby Darin was a truly great entertainer, tragically taken away
at such a young age. I’m too young to have been a part of his era, but I do
immensely enjoy his music. He sang so smoothly and enunciated the lyrics of his
songs with a clarity, and verve which is a joy to listen to. May his music and
his memory live on forever.|| joe accorso - 2010-10-01 21:33:52||best male voice ever||pierina laura herrera - 2010-09-28 18:41:45||El mejor compositor , perfomance, sus canciones inolvidables te
extrañamos bobby||KAREN - 2010-09-26 02:17:43||;) As a teen, many years ago, I idolized him!!! Miss him still.
Clay on PBS tonight is NOT Bobby Darin, though he is good. :)||Tove Kidd - 2010-09-25 14:18:50||Heard DREAMLOVER on the TV two days ago and was reminded of my
favourite song when I was in my teens...wonderful.....!!! |
Love to other fans....
|Joe & Cookie Haddad - 2010-09-22 13:06:17||Bobby reminds us of our great times of our youth and still does to
date with his magnificent undying songs and performance. |
Well done for honouring him this lifetime award.
May he rest in Peace.
|randa tahabsim - 2010-09-21 18:13:50||i love you bobby||Jamey Lee - 2010-09-14 18:51:51||i watched the movie, beyond the sea and WOW he is trully amazing,
he will trully always keep swinging, he has just become one of my favourites. i
am still a young bloke and getting the privialge to watch someone like this even
if its in a movie WOW it gave me goose bumps to hear his music||Su Cote - 2010-09-13 13:44:49||He passed away far too young. I can even remember where I was when
I heard about his death. I was so upset.|| Miss Ellie - 2010-09-13 01:36:25||Talent is talent no matter when it is lost or when it is found...
Bobby Darin was a man first.. a singer second. May his voice live on, may his
gift of life over shadow his death, may those who knew & loved him continue
to share his gift with the world.||Michael Periandri - 2010-09-13 01:22:45||I wish I knew more about this great singer who was on borrowed
time..his voice and talent lives on and on and on for me...by far the greatest
entertainer in his time and anytime....his spirit will never die ...||Wayne Brown - 2010-09-11 16:42:11||He was one of the best ever.|| bob stoeckle - 2010-09-11 14:53:16||bobby darin is and will continue to be one of my favorite
performers, i always dug him on the variety shows when i was a kid. he was able
to accomplish quite a bit in the time he had. fare forward.||Mary Newman - 2010-09-10 19:39:57||I can only imagine the wonderful things you would have done had
God given you a little more time. Your music will be with us forever! We miss
you Bobby!||Su Cote - 2010-09-10 01:07:53||He was such a huge talent. I was 26 when we lost Bobby. I was in
Philadelphia at the train station when I heard the news. I felt so sad not just
for his loss, but that Dodd had lost his father. I always thought that he and
Sandra should have stayed together. Perhaps they are together at last. |
I loved his music as much as his movies.
I miss him still. He died too young.
|Joan Kilburn - 2010-09-09 04:17:16||My beautiful girlfriends and I met him and Sandy after Dodd was
born at a hotel on Mannheim, near O’Hare airport. Wow, that was awesome. After
we said hello, they said, we must go and check on our son. That must have been
in the early 60s. I still love this precious couple, and Dodd is awesome. God
bless him||Brenda De Marco - 2010-09-09 02:37:49||I’m back again for like the 20th time to read up on the most
incredible singer of all time. |
His talent cannot be forgotten....Not by me.
I will always remember as a kid (12), sitting on the floor in front of the T.V. watching Bobby Darin’s last show, and hearing only a short time later he had died.
One of tha saddest memories I carry with me.
I thought of Sandra Dee at that moment and wondered if love can ever really die.
Dodd is wonderful for sharing their own personal lives with us.
Thank you Dodd.
Many, many, hugs to Bobby’s family and
fellow Bobby Darin fans!
We are one!

life and watch numerous clips. Over the last year, I have been dealing with the
after affects of chemotherapy and the nightmare of coming off pain killers.
Bobby’s attitude towards living brought me out of a slump and tired existance. I
pray Dodd Darin gets to read this and respond. Dodd, your parents were and still
are the best! I’m waiting to receive your book and the movie made by Keven
Spacey. Again, Bobby Darin teaches us how to enjoy life to the fullest each
second of each day. God Bless.||Mike Gruhlke - 2010-09-05 19:43:51||Have always liked Bobby Darin. What a performer!! Act, dance, and
sing. One of a kind. He was taken from us much too young. I have listened to
Bobby for over 60 years and will continue to enjoy his music, shows and movies
until I meet him again...he can then serenade me in person. Love ya Bobby!||donna - 2010-09-01 22:14:43||i will forever love listening to bobby songs and watching a summer
place,,sandra dee and bobby darin were my favorites,,,i knew they had a son but
never saw him until today,,he looks like his dad,,,i grew up with his songs and
sandra’s movies,,and they both are greatly missed,,much too young to leave
us,,but as dodd said,,God has a plan,,God be with you and your family,,thank you
for sharing this website||Phyllis Ansel - 2010-09-01 07:28:34||I still listen to Bobby’s recordings and have been doing so for
the past 50 years. I am truly glad he was blessed with a wonderful, devoted son
and so many agents and colleagues that cared deeply about him and believed in
his talents, like the amazing, beautiful soul, Harriet Wasser, who worked
tirelessly for his career and bringing his music to us. And in turn, Bobby
respected them and their abilities and was their friend, as well.||kenny lucas - 2010-08-27 11:18:06||Taken away much too soon, so many great songs he recorded||Joe Kofron - 2010-08-26 13:13:17||MACK THE KNIFE ||Paul Espinosa - 2010-08-25 22:56:48||Always had class and such a super singer. My grandson loves his
music now. I’m looking for a poster---any suggestions?||Harry Palin - 2010-08-25 17:16:21||What a fantastic singer, I still play his records to this day.
Mack the Knife lives forever||Franca Barton - 2010-08-25 00:43:59||Bobby Darin still sets a standard for excellence in performance,
which is, simply, putting out his all for the enjoyment of anyone in earshot,
then and now. Thank goodness for his life, his recordings, and his legacy.|| janie dermody - 2010-08-23 15:46:35||Has anyone considered turning Bobby Darin’s life story into a play
like the one done on the Four Season’s that was so successful? The music and
story would fit just as well as their’s did.||Joan Johnson - 2010-08-22 01:11:20||I really love his music and his movies||jackie ward/starr - 2010-08-19 17:29:35||there is a Bobby Darin link on face book in case any
of you have missed it........and Dodd, i posted a link to this web site on face
book. i think your web page is the best one on line you give your father an incredible gift of love by all you have on
here. thank you. |
|Bob Page - 2010-08-18 14:43:00||Bobby’s songs were so upbeat and fun to listen to. He was a great
entertainer who died way too soon.||Rick Hegwood - 2010-08-13 14:33:29||What a true legend in his own time.||Carol J - 2010-08-09 23:50:15||I’v always been a fan of Bobby Darin’s. Over the year’s I’ve
realized we are all on borrowed time. As a child, I had rheumatic heart and was
limited to what I could do. His music and voice have etched a place in my heart
forever. I LOVE YOU BOBBY!!! ||Mary Jean - 2010-08-09 23:21:16||He was the best! I could hear him sing all day. As a matter of
fact, I’m playing his Greatest Hits CD right now. Have always been a fan of his,
and Sandra Dee’s as wall -- always will be. Such a shock to lose them both way
before their time.||Dalma - 2010-08-09 17:37:10||I really love his voice and I’m really sorry he was
so ill since he was a child. He was so talented!||Francine - 2010-08-08 08:08:01||Bobby Darin Is A Ledgend. He Will Always Be Remembered For All The
Wonderful Things He Did.Bobby Darin Didnt Die In 1973,He Still Lives On....R.I.P
Bobby Darin....We Love You.||Chris F - 2010-08-08 02:49:16||Bobby is one of my all time favorites. It’s a shame his life was
cut short. He would have surpassed Sinatra, Martin, any of them.||Alec Caprari - 2010-08-07 23:50:59||I sing (very badly) "Splish Splash" everytime I get a bath...my
favourite song! Thank you Bobby! The greatest singer of all times... ||Mitzie Marshall - 2010-08-07 23:00:48||I’ve always loved his songs and singing since my Mother bought my
first album at a garage sale when I was 11, He is the best& always will be!!

|Joan - 2010-08-06 13:49:56||My favourite song of Bobby’s is ’I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now’ I
never tire of playing it||Vicky ley - 2010-08-05 23:45:08||I am a big fan, have always been. I too, thought Kevin Spacey did
a great job in "Beyond the Sea".||Romemo - 2010-08-05 14:21:08||Fue una verdadera sorpresa encontrar este sitio - Mi admiración
por Bobby viene desde los años 50’s y fue aumentando con la versatilidad musical
que nos brindo durante su vida (muy corta) |
De la inspiración de Bobby como autor no cabe la menor duda, prolifico, romantico, nostalgico pero sobre todo sabia interpretar los sentimientos de los jovenes de su generación.
Es un honor dejar unas palabras en recuerdo de unh artista unico!!
|Pattie - 2010-08-03 19:59:41||Beyond the Sea...best song ever!||charlene,hernandez - 2010-08-02 20:28:41||i love bobby’s music,,his style,,,he will always be remembered as
well as pretty,,,wife,,,your mother||Alan Johnson - 2010-08-02 20:10:07||R.I.P. Bobby. You’ll never be forgotten.||Jim - 2010-08-02 19:37:55||There is no doubt and never has been, had Bobby Darin lived he
would have been the only entertainer in history that would be as big or world
renown, in talent, style, and charisma to Frank Sinatra..He had one big
advantage over Frank, he could write music and songs||Ronald Linnes - 2010-08-01 23:23:25||He was the Best of the best||JOE - 2010-08-01 00:20:50||HEY BOB, KEEP ROCKIN||Linda Ramoz - 2010-07-31 19:26:44||I have been a #1 fan of Sandra Dee all my life!!! |

|roz - 2010-07-28 13:35:55||Hi everyone -- I’m in desperate need to find a version of That’s
All that is slow, we want it for our wedding song. All I can find is a fast
version. There is a slow version by Frank Sinatra, but I really want it by Bobby
Darin. anyone know where I can get such a version? Thanks!||francisco jose - 2010-07-27 22:38:59||si el talento,la interpretacion,y un sentido especial del amor se
pueden dar en un artista,este debe llamarse Bobby Darin. |
muchas gracias por hacerme sentir tan maravillosamente bien al escucharte.
alla donde estes te envio un abrazo con mucho cariño
|Estela Moguel - 2010-07-27 15:11:49||What a talent man! Beautiful voice. Thank you Bobby ||Gloria Jenkins - 2010-07-27 11:49:42||He truly is "Gone Too Soon||Ed Lawlor - 2010-07-26 22:57:51||Hi everyone, I’m Ed from Suffolk in England and have been a great
fan since I was a teenager in late 50’s and early 60’s. I am now 67 years of age
and still constantly play Bobby’s music in the car whilst on my travels (and I
sing a lot to them also). Wow, what a performer and so versatile in the delivery
of different styles. From slow but heart rending ballads like You’ll never know
and You made me love you through to swinging styles of Mack the knife and Cant
take my eyes off you.... and of course one of my favourites Beyond the sea.I
could go on but I guess I have run out of room. Respects to Bobby’s family - you
must be very, very proud. Ed ||Carre - 2010-07-25 15:18:42||I saw Bobby Darin at the Copacabana in NYC in 1964 after my senior
prom -- probably the best show I’ve ever seen. Both are gone but my memory of
it, after all these years, is one of my best.||roseanne jackson - 2010-07-24 19:44:18||my mom introduced me to you i will always cherish you your music
make people happy ||Anthony D’Amore - 2010-07-24 01:12:11||He will always be the greatest||Denise - 2010-07-23 22:45:47||Just watch Beyond the Sea and it was great. Bobby was before my
time but who doesn’t know Mac the Knift He IS still singing. ||Mike Butler - 2010-07-23 22:37:13||I watched the movie Beyond the Sea. What a Movie ||Anthony Driggers - 2010-07-23 21:27:38||One of a kind. "Beyond the Sea" very good movie.||Val Smith - 2010-07-23 21:02:47||Just watched the movie, "Beyond the Sea". It was bitter sweet. I
very much enjoyed Bobby Darin’s singing and his "hip" style and was shocked when
he passed away so young. It really hits home because I have a 42 year old son
who still seems very young to me and I can’t imagine loosing him at 37. Bless
Dodd and the rest of Bobby’s family and close friends. |
|Hazel - 2010-07-23 14:47:38||I am 69 years old and Bobby Darin has been one of my favorites
since he started. I still listen to his music. Beyond the Sea is my favorite.||Sandrina - 2010-07-20 12:11:52||I am 63 in August and I only want to say that Bobby Darin was
stupendous I have loved him since I was about 11 years old and to this day still
do I also loved Sandra Dee.This generation do not know what good music is,it was
the likes of Bobby Darin that helped me to become an entertainer for 22
years.God Bless Bobby and Sandra.All the best in life for you Dodd and your
family.||MARIANO - 2010-07-17 20:19:41||soy mexicano y admirador de este gran cantante norteamericano,

never been a better entertainer....ever||Mareike Wendler - 2010-07-17 16:25:51||My brother always listen to Bob Dylans music, but its not so my
thing. I like the music of the 50s and 60 , too and I know Bobby Darin since
almost three month now. OK I knew him before but just a few songs like "Beyond
the Sea"(which I really liked before). Three month ago I watched the movie
"Beyond the Sea" by Kevin Spacey. I felt in love with the music and bought 5
albums of Bobby Darin. I love the sound of him. So sad that I wasn’t born when
he lived. I think my room would have been covered with posters of him ||Susan Whipple - 2010-07-17 08:59:46||Wow What a voice! My son is now 3 and loves Bobby’s music.We will
always be fans!||cathy riendeau - 2010-07-16 21:59:47||he was a true talent and loved your mom too sandra dee.. ||Terri Rank Spence - 2010-07-14 19:58:50||I was only 11 yrs. old when he passed.Strange,but it only seems

started to cry. He was a wonderful entertainer & singer. Loved seeing your
mom & dad together. They made such a cute couple & would be so proud of
you for keeping their memories alive. God Bless you Dodd. Keep up the good
work;)||Georgia - 2010-07-14 19:23:58||I have been a fan for years , I remember like it was yesterday

today........thanks||Robin J. - 2010-07-14 16:50:28||Fell totally in love with his personality and his music and his
performances when he was the summer replacement for dean martin’s show in the
60’s...and havent stopped loving him since. what a dynamic entertainer ..and the
epitome of cool. so sad that he was taken son young...he happened to pass on the
same say my dad did..two men who touched my life in different ways left on the
same day, when i was too young to lose either as well. in any event, im so glad
he got the well deserved and long over due lifetime achievement award..what he
did in his short life is AMAZING!!!! he definitely made the best of the time he
had here. so happy for his loving son and his darling granddaughters that he
never got to meet. so nice they will have film and records to know who he was
and how spectacular a force he was!!! ||MG - 2010-07-13 22:15:17||Thank you for the great website. I watched Beyond the Sea over the
weekend. The music was incredible. I have been listening to Bobby Darin all

the Sea. Love Kevin Spacey in almost anything.||Larry Esposito - 2010-07-13 05:47:25||Bobby Darin was one of a handful of truly great performers. He had
innate musicianship that was so instinctual. His rhythm was impeccable and his
interpretations were right on. He was dynamite.||Marilyn Derrick brown - 2010-07-12 04:31:30||I just watched the movie about Bobby Darin’s life. He was so
multi-talented. I love his big band songs, He was another Dean Martin, Frank
Sinatra - beautiful voice. It is a shame he died so young, but he did a lot in
those few years. ||Ron Slater - 2010-07-11 16:18:03||I was a fan of Boby’s from his begining! Great singer,great Stage
presence and could make music come alive!! He is truley missed,always

awesome performer. I bought the movie "Beyond the Sea", starring Kevin Spacey
and have watched it numerous times. Always come away feeling sad for Bobby’s
life being so short, but also smiling and singing his songs says afterwards. He
packed a lot of living in 37 years !! ||Kelly - 2010-07-10 16:15:25||Greetings |

falling in love the greatest of experiences fpr millions of teenagers. Bobby
Darin truly is one of the great contributors to Amercian culture. The "Baby
Boomers" are defined through songs like "Dream Lover".||ric La Monte - 2010-07-06 04:58:46||All I can say is he was great||barbara - 2010-07-04 19:23:39||Bobby Darin was one of a kind..I loved his music and his few films

"Artificial Flowers" When I think of the fame that eluded him because of his
death at 37. I feel that knowing he would have a short life madehim more
ambitious and dynamic because he had to get as much living as he could in to too
brief career.||Neil ’Ruby’ Minsha - 2010-06-23 02:19:58||A big band singer with raw natural talent. Arguably as cool a cat

Excitement" Wilson my former boss. It was always an honor as well pleasure, to
talk turkey with Bobby and he was indeed a wonderful husband to Sandra and
father to his son Dodd. |
I sincerely had hoped, that Bobby would had been with us today. He would really set the world on fire with this special brand of talent. I do miss, and still love him like a brother................

|Kylie - 2010-05-15 04:47:29||Happy birthday Bobby Darin!!! I am 16 years old and Bobby Darin is
my favorite singer, my grandparents were about 37 when he died, and were fans of
his. I've been listening to his songs all day today to celebrate!! Even though
Bobby Darin died before I was born, he still lives on in my house, I don't
think I go a day without listening to a song or watching a video. He was
absolutely amazing, and in my mind the best singer in the world!! Happy birthday
Bobby!! May your talent be remembered forever||Barbara Spratt - 2010-05-15 04:41:05||Truly a legend. Thank you for the website and happy birthday. He
will always be remembered.||Ronnie Wood - 2010-05-14 15:48:57||Bobby Darin is truly a legend.||Anna - 2010-05-14 14:18:46||Happy birthday Bobby! You are very much missed, such a talent.||Andy Crook - 2010-05-14 14:14:36||Hi to Dodd and Bobby's site manager/s. |
I'm thinking of you on what would have been Bobby's 74th birthday. I'm reflecting on how chuffed he'd have been for receiving the Lifetime Grammy. He'd also have been so proud of Dodd and the family and your ongoing love and tributes, and grateful for the wonderful ways in which you continue to honour his memory, as a musician, friend, dad.
Tonight, I listened to the CD of the gig he recorded with the Flamingo orchestra in November 1963* - I'm s muso (have been for 38 of my 46 years) and the biggest buzz I got from a singer was seeing clips from the "Aces Back to Back" DVD on cable TV at the end of 2005 - while I knew who he was, that was my introduction to Bobby, and I set about getting some CDs and DVDs - I'm glad I found him/his music.
Thanks again for the website......thinking of you, Dodd, on your dad's birthday - Cheers and God bless...
Springwood, NSW, Australia
*PS That gig was recorded on either November 9th or 11th in 1963 - I was born on November 11th, 1963 so, regarding when he did the gig, it's either very significant or downright serendipidous!!
|gail bingenheimer - 2010-05-14 02:34:58||I didn't realize until recently how amazing your father really
was. Bobby Darin was so gifted and ahead of his time. Gail||jackie ward/starr - 2010-05-12 21:38:28||this is the best website on the internet! thank you, Dodd, for
keeping it up so well; there is so much information on it. your dad was and
still is my absolute favorite singer. i honestly believe that somewhere he and
Judy Garland are doing the train medley from her long past tv show. |
he would be so proud of you.
|JSG - 2010-05-12 19:24:35||One of the finest vocalists ever!||Mohammed El-Gaily Saeed - 2010-05-12 13:18:09||Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee. We never forget Bobby. As actor,

didn't get his recognition before his death. you should be very proud of what
your father did, dodd. God bless you and take care. would like to hear from you.

legacy remains in the person of his beloved son Dodd....always in my heart and
often on my mind....forever a bobby's girl.||Gary Proto - 2010-05-08 12:50:21||Dodd, your dad is a legend. I have all his lps and oft times
listen to them. His music and persona lifts my heart when I hear him sing and
reminsce about those halycon days gone by. A great performer, musician and,
I'm sure, father. I know he and Sandra had trials and tribulations throughtout
their lives, as we all do but both of them stand out as good people and talented
entertainers when we look back on them. Both are truly missed. God Bless. Gary ||Patrick D. Ware - 2010-05-08 06:24:00||I was very touched by the movie "Beyond the Sea" with Kevin and
Kate but I didn't realize Bobby died so young. Being a musician myself, I will
always love and respect Bobby's musical talents and his heartfelt frustration
toward the "Establishment" reflected in his song "Simple Song of Freedom" which
I now love to sing. RIP brother...||Maritza Quirós Sancho - 2010-05-07 00:16:47||I knew about Bobby Darin when I watched his movie, and I know he
was a special person who lived for doing his dreams a great reality. He was a
honest, friendly, kindly, intelligent and a great artist. Thank you for doing
that movie.||john gardner - 2010-05-01 07:50:20||The man was as cool as ice!! THE EPITOMY OF CLASS. Love

i am 61 and have yet to be so impressed by anyone else. there are a few, but
none with the magic of bobby darin.||Lynn Bigham - 2010-04-30 20:01:43||He was a wonderful singer. I really didn't realize all his other
accomplishments until I read this. I heard "Mack the Knife" on the True Oldies
Channel (106.1 New Orleans) a little while ago. That is what had me reminisicing
and caused me to search for info on him on the internet. God bless you, Dodd. My
best wishes. Thanks for keeping your dad's legacy alive. |
|joseph v. simonini - 2010-04-30 14:04:23||What a great entertainer your father was. I enjoy listening to his
music and also watching him perform on video. Thank you for giving me this
chance to express my gratitude.||Diane - 2010-04-30 12:52:32||Thanks for all your songs. I have wonderful memories of you and
Sandra. You were an amazing entertainer giving your life for the people and
making others happy with your music. Thank you.||Nick - 2010-04-30 02:06:22||What a great performer, singer, songwriter! They don't make them
like that anymore!||SL Moore - 2010-04-29 23:29:53||Great biographical movie. Bobby’s music will always hold a special
place in my life. What a great artist!!||carolann wright - 2010-04-29 23:25:02||You are the best. Always a thrill to hear your music and see clips
of the family. Blessings, always a fan.||jeamette spinelli - 2010-04-29 22:55:52||I remember Bobby for mack the knife, splish splash, if I were a
carpenter. Glad they made a movie on his life. Thank you. I think it's nice of
his son to remember him with a website. |
A simple song of freedom is beautiful. Dodd must really love his father.
|joy cruz - 2010-04-29 18:16:18||beyond the sea ... best song ever.||myra wilson - 2010-04-29 15:12:58||myra wilson. i love your music.||m.doyle - 2010-04-29 02:58:03||I loved Bobby Darin’s Hits! |
He was a great talent!
|Sam Walker - 2010-04-25 22:23:45||I really believe that Bobby Darrin was the best male singer. He
put more "of himself" into a song than anyone. I always sang along with him ....
he felt like a brother. I really miss him.||Monte Mitchell - 2010-04-25 05:18:37||What a talent! I miss him, but I am so glad we still have his
music.||LINDA EVANS - 2010-04-24 00:43:17||YOUR SONG MACK THE KNIFE WAS THE SONG THE DAY I WAS BORN.||Jan - 2010-04-22 17:05:33||One of my earliest memories was hearing Bobby's songs on our
record player and my mom singing along with "Mack the Knife" clicking her
fingers, (of course!) And I was SO impressed with the Kevin Spacey movie about
him I think he should've gotten an Oscar for that one.||Walter Cwiek - 2010-04-21 19:30:33||I remember watching Bobby on television. He was like a
magnet...once you started watching him, you couldn't stop. |
I will always remember Bobby as a great singer and entertainer. Bobby was and always will be a class act.
|Greta Duhamel - 2010-04-20 01:26:39||How good can a guy get? What a classic performer Bobby was...and
his recordings are still so full of charisma and excitement!||Jim Brehm - 2010-04-19 23:40:09||Bobby Darin’s life’s opus is as sweet and memorable as |
"Dream Lover," his passion for music shines in "Beyond the Sea," his sense of fun and comedy explodes in "Splish, Splash," and finally he cuts to the chase with his version of "Mac the Knife." Loved the movie "Beyond the Sea" and Kevin Spacey’s rendition of Bobby’s work and life. Born in 1936 and gone in 1973, just too short a stay for such a talent. Bless his memory, celebrate his music, and enjoy his movies and songs life long, I will. I remember all his songs from the 50's on, and can still enjoy his part in "Captain Newman MD." Today he would have been in line for a heart transplant and better meds to prevent the valve failures. He doubled his expected life expectancy and remains a star that still shines.
|Tbryan - 2010-04-19 16:27:37||Just watched "Beyond the Sea" with Kevin Spacey. I loved his
music, grew up with it at my grandparents house. So, I looked him up, not
knowing about his heart issues. Glad to have found this site and to know he has
not been forgotten!||Janet Rose - 2010-04-19 13:13:38|| He was the BEST ||Jack - 2010-04-16 17:40:11||Bobby was one of the best. Left this troubled earth way too soon.||Kevin Deevey - 2010-04-16 01:54:25||"Hands down" to one of the greatest entertainers of all time. I was
first aware of Bobby when he was a young man appearing with the great Jimmy
Durante. Jimmy held my attention because I was three years old at the time and I
thought for a second "What's my Grandpa doing on TV and who's the kid with
him?" A couple of years later, when I finally started figuring out Who's Who,
it dawned on me that the young guy with Jimmy Durante was Bobby Darin. I guess
you could say I became a fan then, and a fan to this day. I love Bobby and truly
respect his talent. A few years ago I was delighted to buy a DVD of the Jimmy
Durante/Bobby Darin show and it was exactly as I remembered. |
Thanks for this website and keep it swingin'! Also congratulations for the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award...richly deserved!
|Molly - 2010-04-15 21:38:21||I've read three books about Bobby, and in every one, it says he
wasn't very good-looking. How untrue! Bobby was gorgeous! |
But more importantly, Bobby's music makes him immortal; there will never be another golden voice like his again. God bless and keep you Bobby Darin.
|Paul M Blake - 2010-04-15 20:33:36||"Darin at the Copa" to this day still defines the true meaning of
the word "hip." His love of Bobby Kennedy as a friend shows his heart was in the
right place too...the good do die young...||Gil - 2010-04-15 05:13:45||I KNOW YOU CAN’T READ MY MESSAGE BOBBY, BUT YOU HAVED INFLUENCED
MY LIFE SO MUCH WITH YOUR MUSIC. I HAVE THE DVD BEYOND THE SEA AND I WATCH IT
OFTEN. MY FAVORITE SONG IS DREAM LOVER WHICH I PERFORM IN EVERY GIG I HAVE.
PEOPLE LOVE IT. I JUST WISH I COULD SING IT AS GOOD AS YOU DID. I WOULD OF LOVED
TO HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEDGE OF KNOWING YOU PERSONALLY.||R. J. Garofalo - 2010-04-14 01:59:04||Thank you Bobby. For what you shared and gave to us. You will
never been gone. Never!||carol hill - 2010-04-13 19:15:48||no one does his songs better - they sound as good today as they
did back then especially dream lover. saw program that he donated his body to
science - makes more sense than cremation. miss him a lot.||susanb - 2010-04-12 22:06:35||No one wants to die, but knowing Bobby is waiting to serenade us
when we’re with him again, makes me believe in angels!||Fran Tomperi - 2010-04-12 16:52:57||He gave us great songs that have lasted through the years. He is
remembered as he wanted to be.||SaraKate - 2010-04-11 23:50:15||My heart still breaks at the thought of Bobby's short life. He
left us with so much of himself and so many wonderful memories, so much laughter
and so much entertainment to enjoy. Thank you Bobby for your life as short as it
was and for all of your talent, shared with us to give us long lasting memories
of you. You are and always will be missed. There will not be anyone like you
here again...you're one of a kind! Now, you sing in the Heavenly choir! ||Karen - 2010-04-11 21:06:40||Watched the movie this weekend with my sister! It reminded me of
my parents and a wonderful time in our lives. I loved Bobby Darin as a child, it
was my mother’s generation but she helped me to love her generations music. I
still do today! He had such a great spirit and it is amazing how he left behind
so much of himself!||ROSALINDA - 2010-04-11 04:11:35||I LOVE BOBBY DARIN'S VOICE. QUESS I PLAYED HIS MUSIC SO MUCH,
THAT MY CHILDREN DID TOO! WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS 12, I ASKED HER WHAT SHE WANTED
FOR HER BIRTHDAY....SHE TOLD ME, SHE WANTED THE SONG, "DREAM LOVER" BY BOBBY
DARIN. I AM 53 NOW, AND SHE IS 28...AND I STILL REMEMBERED THAT...SO SURPRISING,
AT THAT AGE, THAT WAS ALL SHE WANTED. OH, BY THE WAY, I DID GET THAT FOR HER.
HIS MUSIC Will ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED, AND WITH PEOPLE LIKE MICHAEL BUBLE SINGING
HIS SONGS....WELL, BOBBY WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED.||Jode - 2010-04-11 01:57:25||Just watched Beyond the Sea today. I didn't realize how sick
Bobby was. I enjoyed him as a teenager, he was a great entertainer. (could have
done with someone other than Kevin. ||Linda - 2010-04-11 00:11:51||Just watched the movie Beyond the Sea again today. Bobby was a
great singer and entertainer!! He will always be missed!||Barbara Lange - 2010-04-10 23:53:55||I watched this wonderful movie again and cried. I grew up with
your mom and dad and hoping they would get to gether in the end. I feel they
must have loved each other so much at one time and perhaps forever now. God
Bless you Dodd and I hope there will be more memories to come across on the big
screen for, perhaps, your mom.||Steve Sandridge - 2010-04-10 23:14:49||Just saw the movie...WOW!!||Lynn - 2010-04-10 23:07:59||Bobby - unequaled! |

|mark g. - 2010-04-10 16:01:38||57 years old and still miss Bobby. Great talent, 40 or 50 years of
Bobby's talent we will never see.||Billy Wolfe - 2010-04-09 19:29:27||One of the best things that I always remembered, about Bobby Darin
was his friendship with me. He was always friendly, and never was a struck-up
like he could had been. |
Bobby was always supportive towards, those born with a cleft palate or some other birth defect. He was understanding, as well, at all times! I miss ya Bobby, but many of us who knew you will never forget you!
Rest In Peace, Paul "Billy" Wolfe Carbondale, PA

great songs out!||The very young old girl - 2010-04-01 06:10:01||*O* I grew up listening to and watching Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee
movies along with the music. then never show it broke my heart when he died. I
was very young but still remember where I was when it was announced that Bobby
died. I am so happy that Bobby received the lifetime achievement award. I never
saw Dodd before he is a beautiful man of course having Sandra Dee and Bobby as
parents and the granddaughters as well great DNA. I loved Bobby as a little girl
teenager years listened to him as a young wife and mother later as a widow (I
too lost my husband at a young age from heart related problems) and now as a
grandmother the lifetime achievement award is great but no one will forget Bobby
Darin. I am glad I visited this site.||Hockey7 - 2010-03-30 20:35:23||I have to do a report on him. Very interesting guy! I found it
really interesting about the malfunctioning chinese food sign thing! Rock on Bobby Darin!!!||Pat K. - 2010-03-30 16:46:45||Great entertainer, great musician, great performer, what more can
one say about him. Simply the best.||stephanie duncan - 2010-03-28 02:43:02||I'm 73 and still liston to bobby’s records. I have quite a

singer ever||George Villano - 2010-03-27 15:25:04||A life taken to early. Bobby's memory will go on forever. He

1973 that my father ordered from the internet. As a 38 year old mom of two it
saddens me that he left this world before he was even my age. He exuded life and
the pure love of performing music. I am so thankful that his music will always
live on. God blessed us all with Bobby Darin. Kyah||Tracey Stewart - 2010-03-18 20:51:10||I have enjoyed the music of Bobby Darin since I was a child and
still enjoy it today and glad I was able to share his music with my children.||Peter lloyd - 2010-03-16 07:51:01||We love your work and we admire your family. Bobby did some of the

He is a true perfomer and his legent will live on for years to come.
|Becky - 2010-03-15 06:06:54||My mom and I just finished once again watching our Bobby Darin dvd
I have in our home library of a live show he recorded not long before his
untimely passing. He was so talented and and a true artist and enjoyed
performing so much...you could tell he loved what he did. The entertainers of
today could learn a lot from him. We love you Bobby! ||ken hill - 2010-03-12 22:59:23||Mack is one of the best and Bobby made it that way.||Ann Hopka - 2010-03-11 15:34:55||Bobby, we love you. You are still the best entertainer of all
times.||Danilo Puig - 2010-03-10 01:35:28||A very inspiring human being! It's so hard to believe he only
lived to be 37...!||Patricia Babson - 2010-03-09 14:40:12||Bobby Darin was a one of a kind singer. He made our summers with
his Splish Splash AND Beyond the Sea. I will always remember him. His music
lives on. MY husband listens to the Malt Shop Oldies with me from the Dick Clark
show -American Band Stand. He could sing anything - any kind of song. He was a
unique person with Charisma. He had fans here in the U.S. that he never knew
about. We never saw him in person but I WOULD have given any price to have seen
him perform live. You fans out there who did actually saw him on the Dick Clark
show were privilige people and probably didn't really appreciate that showing.
I pray I see him in Heaven and I pray all who reads this are in Christ.
God Bless you all,

I love his voice, appearence, charm and the songs he sang.
It swings and sometimes I start to cry.
|Dee 2nd March 2010 - 2010-03-02 00:41:05||Bobby Darin - a shining light in the world of music. |
No - THE shining light! He had everything - and Style with a capital S. Not even Sammy Davis Jr. would follow him on stage! The man was a genius - I was in love with him from the first time I saw and heard him. I still am! I loved The Curtain Falls and have encouraged local entertainers to learn and perform it - as long as they give him a mention! Keeping Bobby's memory and talent alive.
|Elizabeth McDonald - 2010-03-01 17:05:53||My mother loved the song "Beyond The Sea." She passed away in 1998
and I miss her ever so dearly. I just heard the song on "Yahoo Music" and would
like to say "Thank You" for putting that song on there. It is another memory I
will cherish of her life forever. Thank you once again. It was one of her
favorite all time songs. ||Jack Cairns - 2010-03-01 13:28:36||Great entertainer.|| Linnie J - 2010-02-25 12:37:34||Have always loved "Mack the Knife," sung only by Bobby. What a

forget. after watching "beyond the sea" movie with Kevin Spacey, it brought all
the memories flooding back. I went out and bought what ever I could get. my
favourites are |
"lazy river," "multiplcation" & "beyond the sea." obviously I love all his records.
|Tracie - 2010-02-19 17:27:34||When I was little, my sister had The Bobby Darin Story album. From
that time to this, I have been a huge Bobby Darin fan. His talent amazes me
still. So sad that he was only here for 37 years but what a legacy he left.
There will NEVER be another like Bobby Darin! ||Kim - 2010-02-19 06:32:14||When I was a little girl, I used to watch Bobby every time he was
on TV. I wanted to marry him. I loved his smile, his warmth and his voice. My world became a little
less bright when he died, but his beautiful voice lives on, and I am grateful. I
am so proud that my own grandchildren know and enjoy his music. What a legacy to
leave behind; four generations of Bobby fans!||Tom Barberio - 2010-02-19 00:40:59||I always liked Bobby as a kid never knowing his total talent
untill getting a live CD TV special on Bobby. He has to be the greatest artist
comming out of his era including Elvis, Frank Sinatra no one can even come close
to his total talent, I hope when I meet him in Heaven. I will tell him of the
hours my wife and I enjoyed watching this great show!||Stephanie M. Jaworowicz - 2010-02-18 16:40:09||Thank you, for building this fun, educational, and inspiring site.
||Randy - 2010-02-17 16:16:46||He was one of the greatest performers ever. He was taken way
before his time, but will always live on in his music...I think his greatest
song is "If I Were a Carpenter." It still sends shivers down my spine to this
day.....Randy||Patrick T Durgin - 2010-02-17 01:08:04||Yo Bobby. Rest in peace man. I love your music and class. |
Take care and God Bless.
|Doug McKenna - 2010-02-15 22:07:03||The man was great! His talent, energy, ability, commitment,

|Toni - 2010-02-15 20:39:55||Bobby Darin was the best and still is the best! He was the most
dynamic, versatile and high-energy person to hit the stage. Would want to thank
Mr. Darin for the joy he's given to us over 50 years through his music, shows
and movies. Dodd Darin's tribute to his dad at the Grammys was magnificent.

era, i was also in love with Sandra Dee. who wasn't?||DONNA TURNER - 2010-02-12 04:29:07||I LOVE THIS MAN. HE IS THE MOST TALENTED PERFORMER THAT I THINK
EVER LIVED. HE MOVED HIS BODY AND WOMAN WOULD MELT. ME BEING 41 now AND the
first time I was introduced to his music was on "Mack the Knife." I was 15 years
old and I got up and danced and sung this song to my daughter’s father and he
thought I was so wild. I always will love Bobby Darin and I know there's a
place for him in Heaven with a big blue cloud and he's probably still
performing. Very SAD to see him go but he will never be forgotten. God Bless. ||lake cochran - 2010-02-12 00:03:53||there will never be one better.||LIZ WESLEY from oklahoma - 2010-02-09 20:20:01||JUST LOVE WATCHING "COME SEPTEMBER" AND "IMITATION OF LIFE." I

life. Grateful for Youtube, there I can see him perform as I was so young when
he passed. I also enjoy reading bios about his and Sandra Dees life.||Carlos Cortes - 2010-02-08 06:40:26||Just, the BEST! ALWAYS! ||shirley jo peters - 2010-02-07 14:47:06||Grew up on Bobby Darin and loved his music very much.||Tess - 2010-02-05 21:40:43||IT’S ABOUT TIME! ||Marianne Vreeland - 2010-02-05 02:29:32||My admiration goes first to Sandra! I am from her hometown and now
live there again. When I was about 11, she came to Bayonne and signed autographs
at a local downstore. The line was about a mile long, and I was on it! Finally
no more people were allowed inside. I never got in but that didn't matter.
Just yesterday I finished reading Dodd's book (Dream Lovers) in 2 days.
Couldn't put it down! What a fascinating story. Thank you, Dodd, for sharing
all that with us. We loved your parents too! Still love to hear Bobby on the
radio and watch the classic CDs! I like to think that they are still blooming
in Heaven's garden. Fondly, |

Antwerp - Belgium
|Gary Walden - 2010-02-04 06:02:43||There was only one Walden Robert Cassotto and he was the best
Bobby Darin in the world.||Judy McRae (Australia) - 2010-02-02 03:37:59||Dodd's acceptance speech sure was a tearjerker, Bobby would have
been so proud with his grandchildren. Loved it!!! ||Karen Esibill - 2010-02-02 02:20:39||Bobby, you were, are, and forever "still the one." Your talent,
incomparable, your courage, and humanity, an inspiration. You are my hero.||Laura J Capuano - 2010-02-01 23:20:09||Bobby Darin always made my life better. He was sensational!! |
I saw him every time he was at the Copa, Westbury Music Fair, etc. He brought me so much pleasure. I loved him, and I miss him.
|Maura Pape - 2010-02-01 22:38:28||It is wonderful that Bobby was finally awarded the LAA. I do wish
the Grammy audience had been treated to a video of his amazing talent. Bobby
will always be the excellence in music which he represented. His kind of music
will live forever.||Mary Carney - 2010-02-01 20:09:11||From the time he stepped his polished shoe onto the Ed Sullivan
stage ... I have 100% liked Bobby Darin. I liked his looks, the way he acted,
and of course that wonderful voice. He was the coolest cat around. I have not
changed my mind one iota ... he could do anything, and on top of that, he was a
nice guy. I love his music. ||Phyl - 2010-02-01 10:21:35||Bobby and Sandra, a wonderful moment in time! I named my son
Michael Darrin because I had such a crush on Bobby. Did not know till it was too
late that I had spelled it wrong. DARN! ||Debby Hancock - 2010-02-01 09:33:54||The world misses him.||Shelly C - 2010-02-01 09:24:21||I always liked Bobby Darin's version of Mack the Knife.
Remembering you.||Barbara Lovejoy - 2010-02-01 05:38:42||Dodd and Family, |
I just watched you accept the Grammy award for your Father and I am still crying. What a wonderful talent he was and taken too soon, this award was long overdue but very deserved.
|GAY EDWARDS - 2010-02-01 05:20:21||Loved your music, Bobby. I was in high school during those years.
Still missing your performances.||Sue Trzaska - 2010-02-01 05:06:48||Dear Dodd, |
I just watched your acceptance tribute to your father. I was brought to tears remembering through your words how wonderful brave, and talented he was, is, and will be forever. Keep the memory and pass it on to your beautiful, and loving children.
PS BTW you were born on my 17th birthday.

live on. I love Bobby's rendition of "Let It Be Me." Lorraine Tillett ||Mike B - 2010-02-01 03:12:27||I am 62 years old. I followed Bobby's career from start to
finish. By virtue of his music, he lives on.||Ronnie Perl - 2010-02-01 03:02:35||One of the Great Entertainers of our time! He is one of our great

was. He is still one of my favorites.
From a Sincere and Great Fan!

meaningful song ever written and especially sung by the one and only Bobby
Darin. It is real as your heartbeat and the tempo is right on the money. I
salute Bobby Darin and his music, his flair, dance, and capacity to grab an
audience forever!||mauro - 2010-01-31 15:48:54||sei stato un grande un grande grande italoamericano. ti

recuerdos de mi niñ¥º®Gracias por tu m?.||sue kelley - 2010-01-30 19:33:52||Bobby Darin's style has never been, nor will it ever be,
matched...he could put over any type of song and had such charisma.....and
anyone who ever heard him do Vegas |
....could tell that he loved what he did and loved the audience and they loved him...what he left us with (although way too soon)...was the gift of his talent...his voice.......... Sue Kelley
|antonio - 2010-01-29 22:58:08||Bobby, que grande eres.|| Louise Wojcicki - 2010-01-29 15:17:44||I knew Bobby as a kid. I stayed the summers with my grandmother at
Lake Hiawatha where he lived with Nina, Vanna, Vivi & Gary. I went to the
house many times with one of the sisters on Dakota Ave. We used to go to the
pool together. Bobby gave me cards with his picture on each one for my birthday.
My sister threw them in the tube because she didn't get any. He was appearing
at the Copa Cabana in New York. He did a show at the State theather in Jersey
City, New Jersey, asked to see me after the show. He gave me an autographed
pictue & a kiss, I turned and fell down the stairs!! Bobby helped me up. I
just loved him. He was the best performa this world will ever hear. Dear Bobby,
I will miss you & your wonderful voice. RIP||Anne - 2010-01-29 08:43:29||At last the brilliance and genius of Bobby Darin is being
acknowledged. So many years overdue!||VS - 2010-01-29 04:01:24||I'll be lovin' you, Always ! So thrilled that BD is finally
getting The Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Mr. Darin gave us his heart
through his music. He's been a part of my life since I was eight years old.
Hard to believe it's been over 50 years. Wish he were here to receive his
third Grammy, but I know the son he loves so dearly will do him proud. Go get
em Dodd, your Pop loves you now and forever. |
Peace and love,
|Judy McRae - 2010-01-29 02:43:36||Such a well deserved award to someone who could do it all. Just
this moment listening to "Darin at the Copa" how brilliant was he, wish I could
have been there. Remember you every day in my prayers Bobby.||Edwina - 2010-01-28 20:22:30||The sun always shines when you hear a Bobby song. I truly believe
he is watching over all of us. He knows how much we love him. I hope they do him
justice at the Grammie awards. |
Bottoms up! I wish we could all be together or all be there.
|Bill Coppola - 2010-01-28 18:38:31||I stood in the rain at Freedomland, watched you perform at the
Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, Westbury Music Fair and 5 times at the
Copa..........each was a unique experience simply because you were such a
magnificent performer.||Susan Schooley - 2010-01-28 15:47:15||"Oh, once in my lifetime...you know...I feel like a giant
