Bobby Sherman

  • American musician
  • Born July 22, 1943

Robert Cabot Sherman Jr. (born July 22, 1943) is an American singer, actor and occasional songwriter, who became a popular teen idol in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He had a series of successful singles, notably the million-seller "Little Woman" (1969). Sherman mostly retired from music in the 1970s for a career as a paramedic and later police officer, though he occasionally performed into the 1990s.

And we just went with Julie because that name hadn't been used in any other popular songs at the time.

If you've got talent, stick with it... because talent wins out, without a doubt.

As far as a cocktail, I do like good wines, basically with meals, and good champagnes.

But there are many, and I'm a supporter of a great deal of charities.

I'm more akin to football than I think anything else because that's what I played in high school.

I worked with everybody, the best, and they actually paid me money to stand next to the people I idolized.

As far as advice to potential teenage idols, there is no formula.

Recently I heard Sheryl Crow and I loved her, she was terrific.

Take some time to learn first aid and CPR. It saves lives, and it works.

Again, talent is the real import of being in the business.

I have a lot of friends and fans in Orlando, and I'd love to see them again.

I miss doing a series, but I don't want to do a series for a series' sake.

In the last 5 years I've been working with the LAPD, training police officers in first aid and CPR.

Yes, I'm supposed to go back to New York to do Geraldo, and we're going to be doing The Tonight Show.

As far as show business, it's the gratification of doing something that pleases the fans.

In show business, if you make a mistake, you can do it over again.

I have to be motivated, and I'm sure time will avail itself.

Unfortunately I'm not a smoker, so cigars have never been a part of my agenda.

I'm such a lover of music that it would be very hard for me to pinpoint it to a particular artist.

I've heard that, but since I'm computer illiterate I don't know how it all works. But since I'm on Prodigy tonight, I'm learning a lot through my typist, Peter.

I became a human placebo.

One I built when I was a kid, and it was a real miniature of Disneyland. I fell in love with the park when I went there with my parents on my 12th birthday.

I am moved by music, and certain things just make my day.
