*** It's been quite a while since the Bobbys were discussed on this board. (unless I missed it) Would anyone also include Paul Anka and/or Neil Sedaka in this group? Anyone else? ***

I think Paul Anka would fall into the same category ("teen idol") as the "Bobbys", as a matter of fact, he kind of predates them, having had chart success in 1957, where the rest of those guys seemed to have been later in 58/59 and into the early 60s... One thing he had that the others didn't was he wrote a lot of the songs he recorded-That's not to diminish anything the others did, just something that should be considered... (Doesn't make me a fan of his either!)

Neil Sedaka, another one who was a writer as well, but probably had some appeal to the "Bobby" set... I'm sure Neil had his followers who thought he was cute or whatever, but I think he would have been content to have others record his songs if he hadn't done so himself...
