Bobby Rydell is an American professional singer, mainly of rock and roll music. In the early 1960s he was considered a so-called "teen idol". His performance in Bye Bye Birdie and his recordings "Wild One" and "Volare" made him a famous performer in the late 1950´s and 1960´s. Rydell used his talents as an impersonator and drummer mostly in pursuing a musical rather than an acting career. Rydell was considered a "teen idol" along with Frankie Avalon, Pat Boone, Fabian, Johnny Tillotson, Jimmy Clanton and Bobby Vee. In 1960 he hit the Charts with "Sway", a 1953 mambo song by Mexican composer and bandleader Pablo Beltrán Ruiz. He also hit the charts again in 1976 with the reissue of "Sway" (Disco Version).
