Hello kittens and dawgs! Have you ever wondered, what ever happened to so-and-so? That happens often with me when I’m listening to an oldies music station or while watching TV. I’m Curious as a Cathy who needs answers to these questions and so a new post series is born. Today let’s take a look at What ever happened to Bobby Sherman?
I was born in the early 60s. By the time I was in elementary school Bobby Sherman was the heart-throb of the older girls. I remember watching 5th and 6th grade girls dance to this music idol. I was only 9 years old when his 1970 hit charted the Billboard Hot 100 at #5, but I recall the song very well. How about you?
I’m pretty sure on a recent trip to the mountains while listening to the Peter Noone show, Little Woman played. DH said, I wonder what happened to Bobby Sherman? I said, “You know I was wondering the same thing.”
Naturally, I had to know. Bobby Sherman celebrated his 73rd birthday last month on 22nd. It’s hard to think of this handsome 70s celebrity as someone my parents’ age, especially when I think of how the older elementary school girls crushed over him. I was too young to fall in love with the heart-throb, but I do remember thinking he was nice looking.
Bobby Sherman retired from the entertainment industry decades ago. In the 70s, he became a father to two boys. He landed starring roles in such TV series: The Monkees, The Partridge Family, The FBI, The Dating Game, and Here Comes the Bride. What I learned next about the singer/actor surprised me. In the late 70s he took a first aid course which became a springboard to a career as an EMT and a county sheriff. Although, he doesn’t actively serve in the field these days, he does give his time to the LAPD as a sworn officer and provides volunteer EMTs to community events through his foundation.
Show some love for this retro favorite by giving a little tweet-out! Maybe, Mr. Sherman will get wind and come by for a little visit. *cross fingers* 😉
I’ll leave you to reminisce with these Bobby Sherman greatest hits.
Have a tunetastic day and please don’t forget to join me for not-so Wordless Wednesay!
