Hi Driftwood, yes the term "Bobby" appeared several years ago to refer to the "teen idols", such as Bobby Vee, Bobby Vinton, Bobby Rydell, Bobby Darin, and in Canada Bobby Curtola. These stars tended to dominate the late 50s-early 60s in the absence of the old line Rockers, who were disappearing from the scene at an alarming rate. Mostly marketed to very young teen girls who watched these youthful white stars on "American Bandstand". Some such as Bobby Darin were quickly marketed to more mature audiences, while African Americans such as Bobby Freeman, Bobby Day, and especially Bobby "Blue" Bland have not at all been considered "Bobbys" in spite of their name.
