Bobby Darin: (Zimbio) — Bobby Darin was a singer, actor and musician best known for his hit “Splish, Splash” in 1958. However, it was not his only major accomplisment: Won a Golden Globe for her role in Pressure Point in 1962 and had great stage and screen hits before his death in 1973 when he developed blood poisoning.
He grew up in poverty in the Bronx and rheumatic fever fought several times in his youth, leading to a weakened heart. He grew up with an interest in music, and graduated from the School of Science Bronx, and then attended Hunter College, but later withdrew and made fair.
His career took off when he was under Atlantic Records when he wrote and recorded “Splish Splash” in 1958. He wrote the song because DJ Murray Kaufman bet you could not write an entry song, “Splish, splash, I was taking a bath,” suggested one main line of Murray. He did, and sold over a million copies.
Darin died December 20, 1973 a 37 After that he took his heart medicine and went in for a visit to the dentist, and ended with blood poisoning. He died minutes after a severe heart procedure to fix his weakened valves.
