Singer/actor/heartthrob Bobby Sherman turns 71 today, July 22, 2014.
Sherman was all over TV in the 1960s and ’70s. He was a regular on Shindig! and appeared on American Bandstand and in episodes of The Monkees and The Partridge Family. He starred in Here Come the Brides and Getting Together.
Did you have a crush on Bobby Sherman? If you did, you’re not alone. So did lots of people, including Marge Simpson, who revealed it in an episode of The Simpsons.
There are lots of Bobby Sherman clips on YouTube, and it was hard to decide which one to feature in this post. Ultimately I settled on this interesting 1964 clip from Shindig! Sherman is singing “She’s Not There.” It was a hit for The Zombies that year, but it seems to me like an odd song choice for him.

That’s a very different Bobby Sherman than what I think of. This was pretty cool!
I like him this way, all angry and pouty-looking. Who knew he could be such a rebel?
Yes, who knew? 😉
