Biography

From Wikipedia:

“Bobby Sherman (born Robert Cabot Sherman, Jr., 22 July 1943, Santa Monica, California) is an American singer and actor, who became a very popular teen idol in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

He first became famous as a house singer on the television series Shindig! from 1964 to 1966. For several years, he tried to record singles and break out into the music industry, but he did not have much luck until he earned a role as a bashful, stammering logger on the television series Here Come the Brides.

In 1969, his first gold single, “Little Woman”, became popular, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spending nine weeks in the top 20, effectively cementing his status as a performer popular with teenage girls. His other hits were “Julie (Do Ya Love Me)”, “Easy Come, Easy Go”, “Jennifer” , “La La La” and “The Drum” (written by Alan O’Day).

In 1971, after a high-rated appearance on The Partridge Family, he was given his own show on ABC, called Getting Together. The show was up against All in the Family on Saturday nights and due to the tough competition, the show was canceled after just thirteen episodes. However, both the television series and the hit theme song of the same name landed a number of cover stories on teenage magazines such as Tiger Beat.

In 1972, his first son was born, with another son following in 1974. Sherman guest-starred in several episodes of the Jack Webb series, Emergency!, and found a new calling. It was at this time that Sherman focused more on his personal life, eventually leaving the public spotlight.

    знаю только песни про рождество, судя по фоткам - стандартная тинейджерская попса начала 70-х средней степени омерзительности.

    Had Charles Manson never been abused, he would be Bobby Sherman.

    My older sister also took me to a concert when I was about 12! I had the good fun and fortune to get to know him during the Teen Idols concerts in the 90's.

    I had to take my 12 year old sister to a Bobby Sherman concert back in 1970.
