Bobby Sherman-1998



I mentioned Bobby Sherman on my GEEK'S JOURNAL 1976 blog the other day and set off a whole bunch of folks remembering Bobby on Facebook. He had pretty much faded from the scene by '76, actually and became an EMT and then, if I recall, a police officer. Eventually, he was lured back out into oldies shows. Here's a clip of Bobby in 1998 with one of his signature tunes, EASY COME, EASY GO.

I located the first issue of Bobby Sherman's comic from Charlton just a few weeks ago. It's a hoot, and I'm very happy to have a sample of that offbeat run in my collection. It looks to be prime Tony Tallarico!

My wife was a big Bobby Sherman fan and she got a giggle out of the cover. My friend who is about a decade younger than I am, didn't even know who Bobby Sherman was. How fleeting is fame!

Yeah, I've been astonished for years just how far off the radar Bobby fell! His biggest hits didn't even get played on oldies stations! People, he was as big as pop idols come between 1969 and 1972. Seriously! He had had an earlier shot as the lead male singer on SHINDIG but HERE COME THE BRIDES made him finally! His silky shirts, tight pants, fluffy hair, fringed vests and love beads were all the rage by late 1970! He was cover featured in teen mags, TV mags and, yes, had his own comic book! But when his 15 minutes were up...they were UP!
