Dear Bobby,

As a youngster who eventually found his way to rock n' roll in the late 50's, I immediately gravitated toward your songs.

Many of the rock performers had NO singing voice. Others could carry a tune to some degree, but sounded awful without background sound effects enhancing the vocal sound.

Then there was Bobby Rydell.  Bobby Rydell could actually SING.  In the truest sense of the word, you are a musician.

Few rock performers could measure up to your standards.  Connie Francis is about the only one that comes to mind.  But I don't think Connie Francis would be good at bluegrass, any more than Bill Monroe could sensuously render "Who's Sorry Now".

Bobby Rydell, on the other hand, can do just about all in the pop music realm.  I always marveled at your two very different vocal timbres….the soft "Don't Be Afraid to Falll In Love," or the bold clear sounds of "Ding-A-Ling," "Volare," or probably my favorite, "That Old Black Magic."

These are vocal tones so individual and belonged strictly to you.  No other performer could match them in shear vitality of sound. 

Whether on a recording or on television, one thing that always came through was polish, stage presence….and holy cow…you always looked and sounded like you were haviing so much FUN.

Your music makes people happy Mr. Rydell.  Don't ever forget that and always keep on communicating musically with the rest of us.

Sincerely,
Peter Bice
