Bobby Rydell

Real Name:
Robert Louis Ridarelli
A popular teen Rock 'n' Roll idol singer in the 1960's who was born April 26th, 1942 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Robert Louis Ridarelli began his musical career during his childhood. By the time he entered his teens he was already a seasoned performer, had changed his surname to Rydell and was playing drums in the band "Rocco And The Saints".

1959 was the year "Kissin' Time" made it on to the top twenty and for the next four years Bobby Rydell was a regular on the music charts. Among his long list of hits were "Forget Him", "Wild One" and "Sway". As well as his musical career he also made appearances on television shows starring in dramatic roles.

By the mid-60's Rydell's popularity was on the wane as the British groups began to make it onto the American music charts, but the singer continued to perform in caberet shows for his many loyal fans.
