Bobby Sherman was born to Juanita and Robert Cabot Sherman Sr. on July 22, 1943, in Santa Monica, California, USA. Darlene is his sister’s name.
He went to Birmingham High School and became interested in singing after joining a dance band. He began playing the trumpet at the age of 11 and eventually learned to play 16 musical instruments!
Sherman attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California, after graduating from high school in 1961.
No discussion of young male TV icons would be complete without including Bobby Sherman. With a sparkle in his eye, a few songs in his heart, and a dazzling smile, Sherman became a TV star first via his appearances on the musical TV show, Shindig!—followed by a costarring role with Robert Brown and David Soul (later of Starsky & Hutch) on the unique one-hour family show, Here Come the Brides.
Loosely based on Broadway-play-turned-feature film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Brides debuted on ABC in 1967 and lasted only two seasons.
But classic TV lovers have long remembered its charming theme song (“the bluest skies you’ll ever see are in Seattle”), as well as Sherman, who during the time, had several hit songs including “Julie, Do You Love Me.”
Television writer Larry Brody worked on Brides with Sherman, and as he recalls:
I wrote my first paid television scripts for Here Come the Brides. Ostensibly, the hero of the series was the oldest brother, played by Robert Brown, but it became clear in a hurry that Bobby Sherman was the one people were tuning in for, so the scripts began emphasizing his character more and more, and along with that, David Soul’s because the characters were close in age and played off each other well. At the time, a lot of people didn’t understand Bobby’s appeal, but to me it was obvious. He was terrific at playing sweet, shy (his character was written as stuttering for the first season but that was omitted after he scored as a pop star), and sincere . . . because that’s really how he was. I don’t know if male viewers liked him, but every man who knew him did, and every woman TV viewer I knew at the time, whether old or young, thought he was “so cute.” And “so cute” is a key to stardom.
With regard to Sherman’s on-screen interaction with one particular Brides costar, Brody adds:
David Soul had a reputation for eccentricity among the staff of Here Come the Brides. [But] as a writer, I found David the perfect foil for Bobby Sherman. They worked well off each other and it was fun to put them in scenes together. He was a very good straight man, as was proven later in Starsky & Hutch [in which Soul played opposite Paul Michael Glaser].
Born Robert Cabot Sherman Jr. on July 22, 1943, in Santa Monica, California, Bobby Sherman had the kind of music idol appeal that drove his fans wild, long before the Justins—Bieber and Timberlake—had a similar effect on teenage girls.
Best known for his role as Jeremy Bolt on Brides, Sherman graduated from Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, California, in 1961, and later attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California.
His parents, Robert Cabot Sherman Sr. and Juanita “Nita” Freeman, also delivered a sister for Bobby named Darlene. His interest in music began at age eleven when he learned to play the trumpet. He eventually was able to play sixteen musical instruments.
In 1962 Sal Mineo composed two songs and arranged for Sherman to record them. In 1964, Sherman sang at Mineo’s Hollywood party, where he made such an impression, he landed an agent and a regular gig on Shindig!
Sherman later appeared on an episode of The Monkees (NBC, 1966–1968) playing a pompous surfer/singer named Frankie Catalina in the vein of singer Frankie Avalon. He also entertained TV audiences for a brief time as the costar of the short-lived sitcom, Getting Together, a 1972 ABC spin-off from The Partridge Family.
Sherman’s recording career earned him seven gold singles, one platinum single, and five gold albums. He also had a total of seven Top 40 hits.
From the late 60s to the mid-70s, Sherman toured the country and the world giving concerts to sellout crowds of mostly wailing young females. The screaming was so boisterous that Sherman experienced hearing loss.
In 1986, the still-dashing performer was cast on the TV show Sanchez of Bel Air. In 1998, after a twenty-five-year absence, fans flocked to see him in concert as part of The Teen Idol Tour with Peter Noone, and former Monkees TV costars Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz.
Sherman did his last concert as a solo performer in Lincoln, Rhode Island, on August 25, 2001. He ranked #8 in TV Guide’s list of “TV’s 25 Greatest Teen Idols” (from the January 23, 2005 issue).
When he guest-starred on television’s Emergency!, he found a new calling and became an emergency medical technician (EMT) in real life. He has subsequently worked with the Los Angeles Police Department which, in 1999, named him the Reserve Officer of the Year.
Bobby Sherman Volunteer EMT Foundation
Along with wife Brigitte, Sherman founded the Bobby Sherman Volunteer EMT Foundation, an organization that coordinates medical services at many community and charity events in Southern California. Although he is mentioned, Sherman did not participate in Jonathan Etter’s 2009 nostalgic paperback Gangway, Lord: The Here Come the Brides Book.
As he told the Los Angeles Times on two separate occasions, first in 1993 and 1998, “I’ve had a couple of instances where my patients would look up and say, ‘Hey, you’re Bobby Sherman.’ It turns into a kind of placebo effect. It works every time. On one call in Northridge we were working on a hemorrhaging woman who had passed out. Her husband kept staring at me. Finally he said, ‘Look, honey, it’s Bobby Sherman!’ She said, ‘Oh great, I must look a mess!’ I told her not to worry, she looked fine.
“I made a decision to give myself a break and do stuff I wanted to do,” Sherman concluded. “Being a teen idol afforded me so many different things in my life. God bless the fans. They made me a teen idol, and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Personal Life & Wife
From 1971 to 1978, Bobby was married to Patti Carnel and, years later, in 2011, wed Brigitte Poublon. He has two sons, Christopher and Tyler, and is a grandfather of six.
Sherman has also had several same-sex affairs in the past, including with actor and singer Sal Mineo and actor Danny Lockin.
