Artist Of The Week: Bobby Darin

Artist of the week is the great performer Bobby Darin. Yup, I know he is not a bluesman, but sometimes I feel like putting someone up here who really inspires me. Bobby played all types of music from Rock and Roll, Swing, Blues, Spirituals, and Soul music. I can remember as a kid watching his TV show and enjoying all of the different music that he and his guests performed. I do believe the reason I played blues is because my parents listened to music from the 40s and 50s, and all different styles of popular music. In fact, it wasn't until I was around 10 or so that I bought my first rock album, (one of those K-TEL top hits LPS) so for my formative years I was listening to some really great music. Bobby Darin was certainly one of those artists. From Mack Then Knife, to Beyond The Sea, I truly enjoyed his songs. To hear some of his great music check out the Video bar powered by Youtube on the right side of the blog.
