Bobby Darin was born Walden Robert Perciville Cassotto in The Bronx in 1936.
Bobby started his music career by writing songs and later started singing his own songs.
He also did some acting.
In the early 1970's he had several heart surgeries and died of heart disease in 1973.
Among his many hits were "Splish Splash", "Mack The Knife", "Beyond The Sea" and my favorite "Dream Lover".
