Bobby Darin Is A New Man

Alan Smith, Hit Parader, April 1967

BOBBY DARIN is the singer who set out to become a legend in his own lifetime. He attacked life like a hungry man wolfing down his last meal. He dedicated himself to becoming a star — and he got used to people calling him "brash" and "self-confident" as often as they said "hello" and "goodbye".
