From Our Department Of Too Much Free Time

Every few years, I google Bobby Rydell just to see if he’s still alive and if he still has a good head of hair.

This year’s result: He’s still alive and he still has a good head of hair but it might not actually be growing out of his head. I don’t know how I missed this, what with being practically my own backyard and a particular area of interest for me, but hair replacement was not his biggest issue since I last checked on him.

Singer Bobby Rydell Receives Double Transplant

That’s all I have to say about it. Good bless Bobby Rydell. I always thought he was a decent person, based only on the facts that  he stayed near his Philadelphia roots his whole life and he remained married to his teen age sweetheart until she died.

Bobby Rydell is very googleable. Found the realestate listing from 2003 when the family home went up for sale. I do love the fact that their family home had an exotic black and white bedroom. And from  some legal proceedings because of a car accident, I found that there was also a second home in Wildwood NJ. Also, a little DUI that ended up with his Bentley crashing into a yoga studio.

Until the double transplant, his internet record -except for the Bentley and the international fame -sounds like unextraordinary events in an average life.

  1. I saw Bobby Rydell and Frankie Avalon in a show at the Orleans in Las Vegas about 7 years ago. They both looked great. Frankie looked better than he ever did. He wandered around in the audience singing to ladies. What an excellent show they both did. And the both had a full head of hair. Only their hairdresser knows for sure.

  2. I know the scoop on Bobby’s hair. I met him last November on the Malt Shop Memories Cruise. Yes indeed, it IS a full head of hair, but sadly is a toupee. He only wore it in the evening and when on stage, during the day he wore caps and joked about his lack of hair. He’s an incredibly nice man and his wife is adorable.

    His shows were fantastic. He’s quite a showman and still in good voice.
