Bobby Sherman (born Robert Cabot Sherman, Jr. on July 22, 1943 in Santa Monica, California) is an American singer and actor, who became a very popular teen idol in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
He first became famous as a house singer on the television series Shindig! from 1964 to 1966. The series is considered by many to be his "discovery" by the entertainment world. For many years, he tried to record singles and break out into the music business, but he did not have much luck until he earned a role on the television series Here Come the Brides.
In 1969, his first gold single, Little Woman, became enormously popular, peaking at #3 on the Billboard charts and spending nine weeks in the top 20, effectively cementing his status as a performer popular with teenage girls. In 1971, after a high-rated appearance on The Partridge Family, he was given his own show on ABC, called Getting Together. The show was up against All in the Family on Saturday nights and due to the tough competition, the show was canceled after just thirteen episodes. However, both the hit single and the television series landed a number of cover stories on teenage magazines such as Tiger Beat.
In 1972, his first son was born, with another son following in 1974. It was at this time that Sherman focused more on his personal life, and he eventually left the public spotlight. Of particular note is his work and involvement with the Los Angeles Police Department, focusing on paramedic, CPR, and first aid classes. He is also a full-fledged San Bernardino County Sheriff.
Bobby built a one-fifth scale model of Disneyland's Main Street, made entirely by hand in his yard at home.
