Bobby Sherman
Claim to fame: Bobby Sherman was a popular "teen-idol" of the 1960s & 70s. Gained international stardom with the hit TV series Here come the Brides charting it's title song Seattle and following up with more chart toppers such as Little Woman, Easy come,Easy Go, Julie,Julie..., yet a failed TV series of his own and the increase of competing male "teen-idols" led to his dropping from the spotlight in the early 70s.
 
 
Bobby Sherman
Where are they now? Bobby has fathered 2 sons and has found a respectable niche as a medic/policeman in Southern California.
He has served as Captain on the LAPD, teaching CPR & First Aid and most recently as Sheriff on the San Bernadino Police Dept.

My nightly prayer when I was 10 was that Bobby would stay single until I was old enough to date. I had such a crush on him. My heart still skips a beat when I see his picture!

I thought he was a gorgeous and talented boy. I am so glad he is not one of those flash in the pan stars who turned to drugs and craziness. Instead, he built a real life, and a real family. If it couldn't be with me, I's still thrilled that he is doing well.

Like every other teen age girl in the 70's I loved Bobby Sherman. My walls had his pictures all over them. I use to drive my family crazy playing his records over and over. I would go without school lunches just to buy 16 Magazine and Tiger Beat, and oh yes I had to write him all the time in those days stamps were only a nickel. I was one of the lucky girls that actually got to go to one of his concerts when he was appearing in San Bernadino, I am now 59 years old, but I remember it as if it was yesterday. I also remember meeting Zooey Hall in Los Angles and getting after him for hitting my Bobby. Zooey was really nice and reassured me he didn't hurt Bobby. I was sorry to hear that he got a divorce, but yet when he got married i thought my heart was gonna break. I'm so happy he found love again. Everybody needs someone! And what a wonderful person he is!!! He has never been in trouble with the law or used any drugs that I know of infact he's a Capitan for the LAPD. Its been over 2 decades since I heard any of his music I can't believe I still remember the words to his songs. And Mr Robert Sherman your just as cute as ever and I'll always be a Bobby Sherman fan!

I recently found a picture when I met Bobby Sherman at Disneyland. It was in 1983. My how time flies! I am a Disneyholic and Bobby Sherman was an idle of mine. How cool was that! What's also awesome is my daughter 18, met one of her favorite people, Lance Bass, from Nsync at Disneyland. I wish I would have known he was LAPD because I volunteered with them about a year and a half. I know no one is going to read this but it was sure fun for me to reminisce

My older sister was the 'pictures all over thr wall' Bobby Sherman fan. Yes, she too listened to his songs over and over again. Funny, after all these years I can remember most t of the songs. The guy had talent. I'm sure he still does. Memories are a wonderful gift, however the career since then sounds so very commendable. Speaking of memories........Good wishes and all the best to you....Jeremy Bolt!

I remember him wearing a wine colored leather choker in a picture in tiger beat magazine. I found one at the store and begged my mom to buy it , I was 12 years old at the time. I wore it everyday and thought I was the coolest person around.

You know I loved Bobby too, just like you all. And recently I had happened upon him in my googling and I I started listening to all his songs and watching his videos. Yes, he was a beautiful man and those blue eyes, etc. etc. Being the inquisitive person I am I kept digging for information and last night I just found out something that makes me feel ill about his so called innocence. There was a bio written about Sal Mineo in 2010. Sal, if you recall was an actor who was linked to James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and he was brutally murdered in 1976. I read there was a lot of material in the bio about Sal helping Bobby Sherman to get his start in Shindig. Well, it didn't come without a price or maybe Bobby Sherman just enjoyed giving himself to Sal (Sal was a closet gay). I don't think Bobby is gay at all but I think he used Sal to get his big break. Sal was enamored of Bobby at the time and Bobby did what he had to do to get ahead. Don't get angry at this post because I am very disappointed. Check out the 2010 bio on Sal if you have doubts. Let's just stop this thing I've been reading so much about how innocent Bobby was. It makes me ill. I'll still listen to his songs and think back fondly about that time, but with a new perspective.

Whenever I have a conversation with others about which teen idol was
the best this is how I answer: If life were a western Bobby would wear a white hat because he's one of the good guys, just look what he has done with his life He is and always will be the best. I am 56 and have been a fan since I was 11
